Is blogging dead?
I've been seeing articles, blog posts and commentary on social media proclaiming its doom for the past couple of years now. Here are links to some of the articles I've found:
When I started blogging some years ago, it was something I did only for myself. After watching my mother's memories disappear in the wake of a series of strokes, I worried it might happen to me, too, so I started keeping a blog--an online journal just for myself. If anyone read it, fine. If not, I was okay with that, too.
Eventually, I also started an author blog--but in the past year, I confess I've lost interest in both. I've gone back and forth on whether or not to continue blogging. Finally, I decided to post once a week, see how it goes.
I've noticed several bloggers I was following have either deleted their blogs or just haven't posted in months.
Have you seen a decline in your blog traffic? Do you find you now interact with more people on social media than you do on your blog?
Do you think blogging is going the way of the dinosaur?
