Everything changes with time, and so the same will happen with blogging. People now value time and that’s why no one wants to waste time reading boring content. Blogging will change and bloggers will need to accept the different changes. With internet becoming cheap, people may spend more time online going through YouTube videos and websites which have got interesting content. Let me make you know my thoughts regarding the future of blogging.
Design May Become More Important in the Future
If your blog loads very slowly, then it may not be able to survive in the coming future. People are switching over to 4G from 2G. At the same time, they don’t want to waste time going to slow loading blogs. Design is going to play a very important role from now. You need to focus upon having the best design for your blog. A fast loading blog will be preferred more than a slow loading blog by readers as they will be able to navigate through the different posts easily.
You may continue with the same basic design, but make sure that your blog is looking attractive and loads in few seconds.
Increasing Competition – Time to Find New Niches?
The competition will keep increasing. Tech and blogging niche will keep getting saturated. If you want to still continue blogging with the same niche, you’ll need to produce quality content regularly. Bloggers will try to search for niches which have less competition. There will be many bloggers who will decide to blog in a team as team effort may give more success.
Most Bloggers will Own a YouTube Channel
YouTube is changing blogging as there are many people who just love to go through videos as they don’t like reading much. Most of the bloggers will give more time for making videos and promoting their YouTube channel. It is not necessary that a blogger will get success only if he runs a YouTube channel too, but the chances increase when a blogger has a well maintained YouTube channel too. Many bloggers are using YouTube for branding and when a video gets popular, they receive lot of visitors to their blog too.
Having Good Images will be a Must
As video blogging is gaining momentum in India and other countries, bloggers who focused only on text will now have to focus on images too. You’ll need to have more images in every post as then only the post will look attractive. Bloggers who write long posts have started including infographics in their posts as readers value blogs having high quality posts with detailed information.
Most Bloggers May Become Influencers
Platforms like YouTube, Instagram, Twitter are growing day by day. Brands are ready to spend money in promoting their product or service through the influencers at various social networking platforms. Even influencers are regularly publishing regularly, and trying different ways to increase their followers. If brands will keep on giving more importance to influencers having very good reach at Instagram, Youtube etc, then definitely most bloggers too will start spending more time on these platforms.
The future of influencer marketing is definitely good and that’s why you need to try your best for becoming a popular influencer at some of the best social networking platforms. Instagram marketing is gaining lot of momentum as it makes a blogger get many new blog readers.
Bloggers Need to Be Ready for Constant Change
Technology is changing things around and automation has replaced many jobs. Bloggers too need to be ready for constant change. Not only WordPress, but bloggers may have to try out other blogging platforms too. Social media marketing is making bloggers become influencers and that’s why bloggers need to spend more time online. As the number of blogs will keep increasing, bloggers will need to try out different things for making their blog get good number of visitors.
Importance of Branding will Increase
I’ve published some posts regarding branding and one of such posts was regarding importance of branding. As people will only remember the popular blogs more, branding will become the most important aspect of blogging. You’ll need to make your blog gain popularity over the social media and you’ll have to regularly promote yourself as a blogger. If still now you didn’t give importance to branding, then it may be the perfect time to focus on some unique ways for making your blog turn into a popular brand online.
Change is the part of life, and the same will happen with blogging. You need to always accept the changes that are happening in the blogging world as then only you’ll get more success with blogging. Let us wait for the future as that only will make us know the different changes happening in the blogging world. Don’t forget to share your thoughts about future of blogging by commenting below.
