As a regular to semi-regular blogger, the downturn in traffic noticed across the board the past several months gives one pause.
It leaves one to wonder what is causing it. Has personal blogging popularity reached its zenith with interest waning faster, producing more new bloggers who quit sooner? Alternatively, has something else superseded the blog as an ether communication mode? Maybe the v-blog or podcast?
If one were noticing it only in a single blog sample, they could take measures to change some things personally. However, investigating further, that is not the case. If paid SEOs are influencing traffic that much, a sense of futility creeps into one’s thoughts. Thoughts of “why bother if increased effort reach is diminishing?”
Paid SEOs to funnel like-interest bloggers to their client’s site is increasing its lobbying to bloggers. Nope. No will do.
Admittedly, one is merely thinking “on paper” here. These thoughts have been scattered about within for some time. So it goes just to assemble them in a single corral a bit.
Ha! I know it’s in the Lord’s hands. My only question to Him is, should I should or should I not should? question.
