and me. This sculpture recognises
Broken Hill's mining heritage.

Happy 2nd Birthday www.ilovebrokenhill.com
On 8 December 2011, I began my www.ilovebrokenhill.com
blog. You can see the link here to my first post. Amazingly, it's two years now since that day and I have written 204 posts.
It has been a lot of fun to date, very interesting and informative, and, yes, I am going to continue blogging about Broken Hill as I haven't run out of things to say.
Writing for my blog has given me an excuse to meet and talk to many Broken Hill locals. I have made some new friends along the way and been featured in the local news a few times as well.
In this last year I decided to become a full time blogger. I also advise and train people on how to use social media including blogging (just one of the many forms of social media).
Blogging can be lots of fun and many people make a living from it.
I really enjoy sharing my social media knowledge and, being an ex-secondary school and TAFE teacher makes it a natural progression to add training to my blogging business, which, by the way is called 'theblog-ed' www.theblog-ed.com
All this has come to be from the fact that I started a blog two years ago about Broken Hill!
You may have noticed that www.ilovebrokenhill.com is ad free. I haven't ruled out advertising or related possibilities such as sponsorship in the future. If you think your Broken Hill business might have a service or product that would suit my blog please feel free to contact me to discuss. My primary target audience is visitors to Broken Hill.
