About me

My name is Ramsay and I’m from sunny (ha!) Adelaide in South Australia. I’m 30 and work full time from home and have since my early 20’s when I was lucky enough to sell one of my fitness blogs for around $20,000. That was the starting point for me when I realized that I could make this blogging thing work.

Since that time I’ve developed other blogs and online businesses in various niches and formats to help me work from home, travel overseas each year and generally avoid a real office job. I quite like working from the couch and often tell people that I run a couch-based blogging business.

Anyway, I established Blog Tyrant to help you do the same. My goal is to just show you what works for me in the hope that it will work for you too. All of the blogging, SEO and online marketing strategies mentioned here have been tested by me and my fiancee Peta (who does editing, research, and PPC marketing for Blog Tyrant), and I genuinely hope they help your business, or allow you to make a bit of extra income for your family.

You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and as well.

If you’re looking for a place to begin then I recommend you read my 9,000-word guide on how to start a blog and dominate your niche or have a look at some important predictions to know before starting a blog.

About you (the Tyrant Troops)

Why include an about you section in my about me page?

Well, because this blog is all about showing others the strategies and techniques that have worked for me.

While I do make a living with this blog, I only ever recommend ideas, products, etc. that have worked for me and that I think will work for you too.

I honestly believe that helping others is the only way to live my life meaningfully. I always try to respond to every comment and Tweet that I get and aim to develop friendships with as many of my readers as possible.

But what I’ve come to discover is that this blog has the single best community on the Internet and almost every post has hundreds of helpful comments and friendly, caring interactions. The comments are often more enlightening than my articles!

Oh, and the name Blog Tyrant is meant to be a bit tongue in cheek!
