Blogging since its inception has just seemed never to halt. Its growth has been characterized by an upward spiral with bloggers raking literally millions each year from online business. This leaves one wondering what future of blogging will look like. Perhaps we are experiencing it right now, or maybe we have started to live it. What does blogging of the future look like? We shall explore all that.
Increased Importance of Email List
A mailing list will never lose its essence in the ever changing blogosphere. It is now needed more than ever given the fact that it is your sure bet for maximizing conversions. Plenty of fads have come over the years within the blogging sphere but nothing has stayed around as email listing. It will still hold strong, and you can take that to the bank.
Passion Precedes Success
If you have been around for a while then you can attest to the fact that successful bloggers in most cases are those who live to blog and blog to live. They are the kind of people who seem wired and programmed for the game. Blogging has to be engrained in you if you want to succeed. If you do a sample check around, you will find out that every single site that has been successful has a person or group of people who really love what they do. They may flip successful blogs but still seem to resurface with a new blog later.
Drift from Social Media to Personal Blogs
Social media platforms such as Facebook, IG, Twitter, and others are slowly losing popularity among bloggers. These sites initially were a centre of focus for most bloggers but it is apparent that nobody wants to lose control of their content any longer. Overreliance on these platforms meant you lost all control over your content since these platforms continually change their terms and algorithms. More people want to take charge of their content and that can explain why there are more than 31.7 million bloggers in the US alone. 30minutesblogging is one such blog that has been on the fore front in helping millions create their own blogs.
Businesses Rely on Blogs
Reliable stats show 68.5% of consumers believe a blog boosts any company’s credibility. No wonder many businesses have embraced the challenge. There is an increased demand for blogs since it has been found to increase page views, subscribers, and ultimately sales. Businesses are even collaborating with bloggers given the endless backlink opportunities this relationship presents. This will still hold in blogging of the future. Conventional blogging will still be on the top years to come.
Not only Valuable Content but Sharable Content
We can all agree fads come and go. Things may change but one thing remains the same; the audience. People will always be there and what they seek is value. The future of blogging will be characterized by an increased demand for not only valuable but sharable content. Content that go viral is what the masses drool for. Sites that are able to tap into this need, will continue to command a following from the masses.
Consistency backed by Content Strategy
We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with tons of information from all over. Users have become choosy and will know what to use and what to discard. Thus, blogging of the future should provide consistent content and employ an effective content strategy. A clear plan of what and when to share content is becoming increasingly essential.
