Who said no one cares about Brisbane Bloggers?

So guys, who said no one cared about Brisbane Bloggers?

I don't know if many of you know this by I run Australian Car Advice & News Blog, pretty much a blog about cars, with the difference being that we actually get given cars to drive and review, pretty good for just a blog.

So when the 2007 Brisbane Motorshow started coming closer, I was interested to see if as a blog, we would get invited to go along as VIPs/Journalists. Getting to go the the motorshow is no big deal, tickets are only $16 for adults anyway, but that was besides the point!

It was a test to see if Bloggers were taken as serious journalists and if all the hard work that I and other bloggers had put into the car site had actually got us some proper recognition, and you know what? To my surprise (yes I was still surprised) we got invited to go along to the journalist day on Friday (2nd Feb).

If you take your blog seriously, it doesn't matter if your in New York or if you're in Brisbane, blogging has come a long way since its early days as dribbles of teenage angst. I think more than ever, cooperations are actually listening to bloggers as they know that traditional media is no longer the way of the future.

Anyway for those of you who love cars, I think this years motorshow is going to be one of the best, I will post a review of it tomorrow night!

Thats fantastic! I have been blogging for sometime and tragically, it started when I was a teenager, so there definately was some essence of teenage angst.

I have started to take my blog a bit more seriously with what little time I have after University. I hope to reach a degree of recognition as you have. I would very much like to know your website link to your blog!

It's pretty interesting how things are changing. But I guess if a blog or any website is getting the traffic and people trust it then the site is a valuable resource for that industry which can't be ignored and should get the benefits of the traffic it is sending out.
