I'm an independent tech journalist from Australia that makes a living from an email newsletter called The Sizzle, ask me anything!
Hello! My name is Anthony Agius (most people know me on various online places as decryption) and my primary income these days is from the 820 people that give me $5/m or $50/yr to read my daily takes on the technology industry. I've been publishing The Sizzle (thesizzle.com.au) almost every weekday for a bit over 6 years.
For the last 10 years I've worked as a freelance technology journalist alongside The Sizzle, writing articles for publications like Delimiter, SMH/The Age, Macworld Australia, PC & Tech Authority, Australian Personal Computer, Drive Zero, Wheels/WhichCar and Media Connect/ITJourno. I've also spent a big chunk of those years doing copywriting (i.e: sponsored content blog posts, words in advertising campaigns, that kinda stuff) for various tech brands like Seagate, Hisense, Asus, Samsung, Gigabyte and heaps more.
Whenever people ask me what I do for a living and tell them I'm a technology journalist, they surprised to meet someone doing this full-time, so have a heap of questions about the work.
If you've got a question about what it's like to make a living purely off an email newsletter, what it's like working in the technology journalism area, or general questions about technology journalism, I am here to answer them!
