Blogging has become one of those things that everyone does. Like photography where if someone owns a camera they’re a ‘photographer’ the same can be said of blogs.
The truth is that blogging is not as easy as starting a blog and writing a handful of posts. Successful blogs take time, dedication and persistence. They build up communities of readers that love their content so much they keep coming back before.
Canberra itself is home to hundreds of blog (bet you didn’t know that!), yet only a handful have become successful, gaining loyal readership, creating interesting content weekly and always pushing their creative side.
The Merrymaker Sisters
The Merrymaker Sisters is as you guessed it, a dynamic duo sisterly blogging team started by Emma and Carla Papas. They started out writing about the paleo lifestyle and sharing recipes allowing their readers to cook yummy paleo meals.
Since starting out they’ve expanded into selling their own range of cookbooks and paleo health coaching sessions. These women keep going from strength to strength with their blog and I’m really looking forward to seeing where it takes them.

Canberra isn’t the first city in Australia that comes to mind when you think of fashion, however Closet Voyage is changing this one outfit at a time.
Closet Voyage is the style diary of Jiawa Liu who is inspired by all things fashionably beautiful. Her flare for fashion and street style photos grab you straight away. She not only invests in luxe items but regulary thrifts pieces and shows you great ways to wear them.

In The Taratory
In The Taratory first started out as a blog written by two Taras, T1 and T2 and in 2012 become solely written by Tara 1.
In The Taratory has become a household name in Canberra and I often here people reference, ‘In The Taratory didn’t rate it very well so I won’t be trying there’. Tara focuses on showcasing all the good things about Canberra from food, walking trails, events and anything else she thinks might suit.
