Start a Blog and Build a New Career Online.

Artificial intelligence and automation have changed the economy forever. Smart people are now turning to blogs and websites to make a living online. Hi, I’m Ramsay (the goober on the couch), and since 2010 Blog Tyrant has been a place to share the tested blogging, email marketing and SEO strategies that I use on my own Internet company.


Where do I start?

The goal of Blog Tyrant is to share the blogging, SEO and email marketing strategies that I have used to sell blogs and build a blogging company that has allowed me to work full-time from home. I sincerely hope these tips help you too.

Most of my articles are 3,000-words long to give you as much detail as possible. Here’s some places that you might like to jump in:

All of the blogging, SEO and online marketing strategies mentioned on this site have been used by me my partner Peta (who does editing, research, and PPC marketing for Blog Tyrant).

Okay, but who made this site?


My name is Ramsay Taplin and I’ve been dabbling with money-making blogs for a long time now. I started working full time from home sometime around 2009 when I was lucky enough to sell one of my first blogs while still at college. That was when I became fascinated with the Internet and, since then, I’ve been making a full-time income from the Internet running a blogging company from my couch.

Since then I’ve been so grateful to be featured on blogs like ViperChill, Smart Passive Income, Problogger, Copyblogger, Goins, Writer and more.

I don’t share this to brag, but just to express how wonderful blogging can be for people who want to build a new career or do something different for work. The economy is changing, and it’s my hope that this site will give you some new ways to make an income online for you and your family.

You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and as well. I mostly work on East Coast USA time, even if that means staying up late. If I can ever help you out, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Lastly, a quick “About You” Section

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!
