Hi and welcome, my name is AJ, I’m a corporate IT nerd turned digital marketing enthusiast specializing in SEO and content strategy.
I have been happily making a full-time living from blogs and websites since 2015.
Blog Pioneer was created as a way to share my experiences with you and hopefully provide you with lots of useful tips and information around the exciting world of SEO, content strategy, WordPress and blog monetization.
The Online Business Lifestyle
At the end of 2014 I said goodbye to my corporate life so that I could focus on my passion which was, and is, everything digital. In other words, I took a leap of faith and decided to go through a career change. A huge step, but one that I really wanted to take. Fast forward three years and I have no regrets.
I now manage a small portfolio of blogs and websites that generate revenue by means of advertising and affiliate marketing channels. As with any business, you need time to get things going and to actually make some sort of profit. In my case this meant that I had to work hard on SEO and content creation in order to get my websites to rank in the search engines.
I basically spent the whole year of 2015 trying things out, making gazillions of mistakes, before the penny (literally) finally dropped in 2016.
SEO nowadays is a lot more difficult than it used to be, and it can literally take months, or even years, before a website starts to get some decent organic traffic. This is something I am very passionate about which makes my work very enjoyable.
The online business lifestyle is awesome. It’s a lot of hard work, but to be able to make your own hours and to have the freedom to do what you want to do, that makes it all worthwhile.
Besides looking after my own portfolio of website, I also help small businesses and individual bloggers achieving growth by giving actionable advice regarding SEO, content strategy, WordPress and website monetization.

On a different note, I’m a massive Sydney FC and Sydney Roosters fan, and you can often find me at Allianz Stadium in Moore Park supporting my favorite teams.
