Your Blog in 2020 • Blogging Insights#12
Dr Tanya – in her great blog Salted Caramel – has just started the second series of her Blogging Insights.
Q: Where and how do you see your blog in 2020 ?
I can only hope…and dream of course. In all honesty, I had hoped my blog would have taken off a little bit steeper so to speak. But given the fact I’ve only been blogging for roughly half a year now (of which only the last 3 months and a bit seriously in terms of time spent on it) maybe I shouldn’t complain. For 2020 I hope to see the sharp increase in terms of all key metrics since October continue.
Q: Are you going to make any significant changes ?
Einstein famously defined I N S A N I T Y as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So I’ll have to make some changes. One thing I’m contemplating now is to cut down on the number of photo challenges I take part in and use the time saved to pursue other worthwhile ‘things’ (on my blog). I desperately want to spend more time writing for instance. But I fear numbers will taper off instead of increase. On the other hand I increasingly believe I’ll just have to live with that.
I know this sounds a bit corny, but bear with me please. I, or my blog, can only be of value if it’s positioned right. And right now, it’s a bit of this, and a bit of that. So I intend to streamline it a bit better. Find a focus and stick with that.
Q: In your opinion how relevant or popular are text based blogs (as opposed to vlogs) going to be in 2020 ?
I have heard of vlogs taking over in terms of popularity for years now. In my mind this has not happened, and might never happen. And if it does, so be it. I’ll cross that bridge when I get there, or I just might burn it and let the ensuing light guide my path forward.
