Kate Banazi is an outstanding artist who is English but lives in Sydney. She writes the often hilarious blog How Now Brown Cow. You can also find her at her website. You will look at her art and designs and be WOWed.
Moofus is Kate’s son. What a talent. An artist to watch out for. I hope he’ll buy me something when he’s famous. I’d really like a new car but that pair of purple Doc Martens I saw in the Broadway Centre will do. Love you, Moofus!
Daoine writes several blogs including My Fictional Life Blog which is part of her website Hear Write Now. She is a professional editor and writer and offers many handy tips on the craft of writing. You can also find her at The Blood Red Pencil.
Bear writes the blog Bear . A modern day Winnie The Pooh, complete with often hilarious, sometimes irreverent, sometimes sad philosophies. He is too cute to be true.
David writes David M’s Journal. He is gifted with a vivid imagination and a keen intellect. Also, what an outstanding researcher. Amazing! In 2011 I am still going to nag him to finish his book.
I would classify Gabrielle Bryden mostly as a poet, but she also writes wonderful prose. Warm, witty, engaging. Her videos and photos should not be missed for the glimpses she gives of Aussie wildlife and nature. I would not be alone in thinking she is one of the most talented writers on the internet today.
Stafford writes the blog Stafford Ray. It is full of humour, insight and observations into such things as politics and the environment. One thing I really like about Stafford is that he cares – really cares about things. His passion for the green movement is inspiring. And he lives on a boat. One day I will have to visit him!
BeeBlu has a wonderful blog of poetry and photography. It is so great to list a fellow Sydney blogger here. I really enjoy her perspective and insights. Stop by and say Hello!
Lucent Imagery is such an extraordinary blog. The photographer is legally blind and the photos are exquisite – better than I could ever hope to take. I am inspired every day by this blog!
Tracey writes a multi-faceted blog called Quiet Paws covering film, books, food and life. I like her observations, her sense of humour and her photos. I’m sure you will find her blog a worthwhile read!
Mags writes a blog that mostly contains YouTube videos but there is such a variety of subjects covered there is something for everyone. Very interesting, very informative. I learn something every time I visit MagsX2.
I met Eddie through Twitter. He is an American living in Sydney and is a Buddhist. He has a blog called The Crossroads which provides a lot of insight not just into life from a Buddhist perspective but life in general. I like Eddie a lot. He is a cool guy.
I also met Lily through Twitter. She is a poet, an artist, an activist and an all-round lovely person. I am so glad to have met her. You will really enjoy reading her blog Lily Live.
Ben Cruachan – Natural History is written by Duncan. This is a wonderful Australian nature blog. The birds, in particular, are amazing!
Based in Gippsland, Victoria, Gouldiae’s Blog is so fantastic. I love it because I get to see all the cute Aussie birds I don’t see in the city. You have to check it out!
Tyto Tony, based in Queensland, is another nature and birding blog I love. Makes me smile every single time. Go and visit!
The Nature Of Robertson is full of nature news and views, great photography and lots of information about one of the most beautiful parts of NSW, the Southern Highlands. I would love to live there!
*** Here are my favourite Sydney photo blogs. I read them all the time and love the photography. There is a lot to see in this beautiful city -
Jacqueline writes Saving Our Trees about community efforts to save parks, wildlife and trees in the inner west area of Sydney. Very informative. Has put me on to lots of good places to visit and has inspired me with its consistent level of gentle activism. Go SAVING OUR TREES!!!!*Paul Squires passed away in 2010. It was an extremely sad day for the Australian blogosphere and, in particular, the writing community. Paul wrote the awe-inspiring Gingatao. He was a poet of great merit, wit and just all round brilliance. He is missed every day.
