My question comes from a recent article on JSTOR Daily: “The Rise and Fall of the Blog”: https://daily.jstor.org/the-rise-and-fall-of-the-blog/. One paragraph:
“Today, writers lament the irrelevance of blogs not just because there’s too many of them; but because not enough people are engaging with even the more popular ones. Blogs are still important to those invested in their specific subjects, but not to a more general audience, who are more likely to turn to Twitter or Facebook for a quick news fix or take on current events.”
Interestingly, an author quoted in the piece suggests in her linked-to article on Medium that blogging energies are better spent developing “deep interest networks,” (http://try.mightynetworks.com/better_than_a_blog/), which appear to be very similar to what Sean is doing here.
But I’m wondering whether those of you with active blogs have noticed any trends in the past year – up or down – in visitors or engagement?
