Hey Monday lovers! Hope you had an absolutely swell weekend. I’m coming atcha this fine morning with a few thoughts and a question for you: What do you think is the future of blogging?
Usually when I write posts in this here Blogging series, I share my processes or thoughts about my blogging experience. But I’ve been thinking lots lately about my job, and how it might look in the future. What do you think blogging will look like in the years to come? Do you think it will stand the test of time? Do you think that it’ll be a relative flash in the pan and eventually make way for some new type of technology or media that doesn’t yet exist? Something in between?
No one could have ever predicted that magazines and newspapers would suffer because of this magical, futuristic technology we call the internet. I’m sure when the concept of the blog was created it was never meant to take the place of print journalism. But that’s what’s happening, little by little. So is there something out there that will take the place of blogging? These days, I feel like part of my job is to keep my eye on the horizon to find out that very thing. And to bring it to you, ASAP, when I find out what it is. That’s part of the reason that we did our big fancy redesign — I wanted the blog to feel more like a destination, an experience. Because I’m feeling like that might be the future for Lovely Indeed.
I’d love to know your thoughts! The face and world of blogging has already changed dramatically and it’s still such a relatively new medium, in the grand scheme of things. What do you think is next? Is there a next? Or will blogs be around for a while? Let me know what you think and let’s have a convo! xoxo
