What Happened To Blogging and Having A Great Blog?

Profile photo of Lisa Submitted by Lisa September 30, 2016 Website : inspiretothrive.com

Did you know blogging online began back in 1994? The first recognized blog was linkes.net. It was really a person’s personal notes on life. A very simple great blog. Since then over millions of people blog. Another hundred million+ people use social networking sites to blog like Twitter. Twitter is considered a micro-blogging which consist of short and frequent posts.

Many blogs today are multi-authored blogs as one author bloggers find it difficult to compete with more and more blogs being published each day. Many bloggers also do guest posting and sponsored posting.

    Would like to believe people’s priority have changed since then. Blogging is now more than your ideas online, but also making g income from your blog. Most bloggers have the later as the utmost priority, hence write articles with poor quality.

    If more emphasis was still placed on quality content, then we’ll still have more than half of the blogs on the internet with great content . great post, a controversial one too.

    Hello Lisa

    Great post! It was very informative and useful. I wasn’t blogging in 1994 but from what I heard there was a lot of keyword stuffing and it was quite easy to get a high DA.

    It’s no longer the build it and they will come situation as before. You have to be more knowledgeable about online SEO and offline SEO. And there are over 170 million bloggers in the blogosphere, so the rules have changed.

    Thanks for sharing this value packed post of yours, I think many bloggers could benefit from reading this post Thanks and have a super weekend and holidays.

    Visited your neat site. Great content.
    Truly blogging has evolved from just putting one’s thoughts down for the satisfaction derived from doing so.
    Each day newer things, better ways keep coming up however, it does seem as each day passes by, blogging becomes more and more time-consuming.

    I think now its more critical to having a good blog, and not just using it to make money for it to survive. For already, a lot of people, I’ve been guilty of this as well, got too promotion happy. I used to think of blogging at first as an online journal basically.

    So much has changed since the 90s, even from just seven years ago when it comes to blogging. Very nice read.

      Thank you Tom.

      Oh yes, so much has changed! They do say it’s best to spend 80% of your time promoting your content and only 20% of the time generating new content. It sounds odd doesn’t it? But if we don’t spend time promoting it may remain unread on the big digital world today.

      I agree it should not be all about making money but in the end that’s what keeps many blogs afloat as hosting and plugins can surely add up year after year.

      Thanks for coming by on this one!
