Unless you are illiterate or otherwise oblivious, I am a blogger (as this is a blog). And as a blogger, knowing and learning from other bloggers is one of the most important things I do. Well, besides blogging, and having some semblance of a life. Michael Aulia has really been one of the bloggers I most admire. I can say I knew him relatively early on, just after he “got big” with a post about Battlefield Heroes. Since then, I’ve kept tabs on his site, contacted him a few times, and have really learned a lot from him.
Formerly MichaelAulia.com, CravingTech is Michael’s technology blog. Ever since winning Nuffnang’s “Best Geek Blog in the Asia Pacific Region,” he’s been doing a lot of hardware reviews, which are incredible. He really pulls apart the little details of the product. Before I buy anything, I’ll search his site quickly to see if he’s done a review of the product I want to buy, because frankly, I couldn’t ask for better reviews.
…and how it’s helped me.
On top of this, Michael dedicates a good chunk of his site to helping aspiring bloggers *(cough cough)* get started, giving them pointers and guides. It’s because of him that I started using Entrecard on my site, and I’ve been generating a fair bit of traffic from it. He has various guides on how to be a good blogger, how to review products, and how to make an impression in the wide world of the internet. Check out his guides here.
Check him out. At the very least, you’ll learn something. Maybe you’ll even become a regular, like me. Michael’s a great guy; go take a look.
