It has been stressed many times before that blogging is about to come to a natural end because of all the saturation that the industry is seeing. It is becoming easier than ever to get your hands on a domain, hosting and all the technical prowess required to build a blog and that is why even the non-professional and content spamming people are getting into the game.
Blogging isn’t going anywhere
But apart from all this, in all seriousness, does blogging have a future? If you happen to be among the people who are asking this question on repeat then you really have to ask yourself this first, can the world live without content? The abrupt answer would be, No, this is what keeps the internet alive and that is your answer right there. Not only does blogging have a future but it is a bright one as well.
Content keeps the internet kicking
Why do people head to the internet, to any search engine there is? What are they after? They are after the information, about something, looking for their favorite products, trying to get into the DIY approach to fix certain things, looking for the most recent information about what is happening in the world, and all that. And for that, they head to the internet because that is where the most recent information about all of this and more is present.
These are the blogs that provide people with the information, search engines are merely a potential way of linking the people with these blogs based on the keywords that they have entered. Without blogs, the continuous wheel of information would just stop spinning and that is something no one is ready for at all.
Social media can’t replace blogs
Another really distressing assumption that people have when it comes to blogging is the relative increase in the overall interest that people redirect towards social media. For them, it has become the new place to share ideas and information about the stuff they like. Sure it is a great place to share your thoughts and insights and connect with people but when it comes to having deeper insight into a specific something may it be a product or a new technology that has been introduced people are going to go to blogs right away.
People prefer to visit authoritative blogs and sites from where they believe they can get impactful information about the stuff they are interested in. Until something comes along to replace websites and blogs in the future, blogging is here to stay.
Inclusion of new trends in blogging
There would be a lingering fear of blogging becoming extinct if it didn’t have actually changed or modernized itself over the years, but thankfully that is not the case. Blogging has come a long way, the blogs that you visit today are not simply a humongous block of text that is stomped onto the reader with no aesthetical approach whatsoever. You get to see media that links to the text, appreciate it, and even lift off what the author is trying to say.
You can find links to certain products or services being talked over within the blog, you can listen to the podcasts, sign-up for newsletters to get timely notifications to the upcoming posts from your favorite blogging sites, and much more. Blogs have done a really good job in maintaining themselves and repurposing their appeal and relevancy over the years by remaining in sync with the desires and likeness of the users.
