Is blogging dying? That’s a tricky question to answer because there are a few views that you need to look at. Being that my blog is a WordPress blog that’s what I can judge on. To give you an idea of how my blog is doing, I have about 1k in follows, and I get about 1.5 views per month.
I have the cheapest plan when talking about WordPress, and that is 48 euros per year. Having said that I haven’t a cent from my site. The package I’m on allows me to have some Wordads. However, it doesn’t allow Google AdSense. Comparing the two Google AdSense ads pay more.
The ‘New’ WordPress Editor
I had seen a lot of bloggers I followed disappear when the lastest editor became the only opinion. Some couldn’t figure out how it all works, and I don’t blame them. Then, you have another group of bloggers were due to restrictions they could no longer or even worst couldn’t have to their own blog.
Personally, I haven’t found it very user friendly, and I had to contact WordPress support multiple times. No matter how much they tried to help, it still takes me longer just to post. Before, when you went to schedule a post in the older editor, the calendar is used to circle the date if you have a post already scheduled. They no longer have that which made me mess up a time or two, which’s annoying.
