Has Blogging died?

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my site. Today I’m going to be presenting a lifestyle post and will be talking about blogging over the years. Shall we begin?

In this day and age there are many different forms of blogs. They come in the forms of “vlogs” or social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. But the first form of a blog was a website such as the one you are reading now. The first ever blog was created in 1994 by someone named Justin Hall.

Now everyone can be a blogger with an Instagram account and photos to upload! The thing is, photos and videos gain more attention than written words do, in fact most people don’t like to read many long passages such as this one. So that had me wondering if the traditional form of blogging had died? It’s easy to take a photo and write a short caption but what about spending time on someone’s website and reading the words that they have written out with care.

The problem is that no one has any time anymore, we are a generation who works and works and has no time to spend reading a good book or stopping to looking at the world we are living in and the time we are living in. Instead we’re all running in such a fast pace for our own personal goals without stopping to admire the view.

I started a blog back when I was in high school, I’m not sure what year it was but maybe 2012 or 2013? I didn’t have a WordPress blog at first and no goal or vision for my blog I just loved to write and wanted to write. Back then in high school I like to think I had so much time that I used to blog at least once a day. Now, as an adult I barely have the time to write one post a week let alone read anyone else’s blog.

Going back to the topic of this post I believe that the original form of blogging is slowly dying, however there are a great many people who still read blogs like this one. But the definition of blogging has changed and shaped into many different forms of social media and instead of bloggers we now have “influencers”. Let’s all hope that the future form of blogging will be one that we can all enjoy.

I would like to set myself some of my own personal goals with my blog and how I connect with other bloggers here on WordPress. I will try to create a blogging routine and work on some blog post drafts during the weekend and from there I will also try to set one day where I publish my posts however, from this moment it would just be once a week without a fixed date. I also have the WordPress app and will try to utilise it more by using it to read other blogs and interact with other blogs and bloggers. I hope that we can create a small community here on “TrulyRaisa”

I will see you next week with a new post!

  1. I haven’t been blogging for as long, but it’s interesting to hear the perspective that blogging has changed! We also have shorter attention spans, maybe that’s why longer blog posts aren’t as popular as they were before?
