Technical Blogging is a blog dedicated to relentlessly helping bloggers and entrepreneurs succeed online.
Our aim is to provide you with all the practical information you need to start and grow a successful technical blog (as opposed to a personal blog about your kids).
Who is this for?
Technical Blogging mainly serves three audiences:
- Bloggers interested in making money online by sharing their expertise.
- Techies interested in advancing their career and increasing their influence.
- Entrepreneurs who intend to use blogging as an internet marketing tool for their startup/business.
You don’t have to be a programmer or a startup founder to find the advice useful, but I’ll make a few assumptions here:
- You are smart.
- You are internet savvy. You don’t need to have what a domain name or a feed reader is explained to you.
- You are not after a get-rich-quick scheme. Anything worthwhile requires real work and online businesses aren’t different in this regard.
- You dislike bullshit as much as I do, but you are not opposed to the idea of promoting yourself or your business online in an ethical manner.

Technical Blogging Blog vs Book
This blog has the same title as my Technical Blogging book, published by The Pragmatic Programmers.
Technical Blogging is the first book to specifically teach programmers, technical people, and technically-oriented entrepreneurs how to become successful bloggers.
Picking up a copy of Technical Blogging is recommended because it provides you with all the fundamentals you need to know to make your own blog successful, and take full advantage of the insight dispensed by this site.
About Antonio Cangiano
My name is Antonio (you can call me Tony if you want). I don’t like to boast, but credentials do matter when it comes to teaching others, so I’ll get doing so over with quickly:
- I have been blogging for over a decade (in English and Italian).
- I’m a Software Developer and Technical Evangelist at IBM. My Internet marketing skills are key to my role, as much as my programming skills are. BTW, I got this job through my programming blog.
- I’m the Marketing Lead for Cognitive Class, a site my team and I grew to over 1 Million learners worldwide.
- I make a monthly side income from my technical blogs, which I update once in a while. This is virtually passive income. Overall, I don’t think I spend any more than a few hours a month on all of them combined.
- I used to run one of the most respected technical blogs in Italy.
- Over the years, I’ve attracted millions of visitors to my blogs and side project sites.
- As you know from the previous section, I’m the author of Technical Blogging published by The Pragmatic Bookshelf.
This is to say that I’m not your typical internet marketing “expert” who’s never made any money online or attracted a following. I’ve actually started and currently run successful technical blogs. I’ve been in your shoes.
On a more personal note, I was born and raised in Italy, but I left my home country back in 2003. I currently live in Canada with my beautiful wife.
Feel free to get in touch at any time.
Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy the book and this site.
To your success,
