I may be way off here, but I'm starting to think that as Instagram and Facebook gain more and more popularity, blogging has begun its decline. What do y'all think? We're such a mobile society, always on the go. It's so much easier to interact and engage through platforms with apps. Who has time to sit and scroll/read through blogs anymore? In fact, I may take it a step further to say that even Facebook is on the way out and Instagram reigns supreme. People have full-on conversations, make new friends, exchange information and get their daily dose of pretty...all from that little app. It's definitely the first one I click on when sitting in a waiting room! Although there are advantages, blogging offers a richer experience complete with as many full size pictures and words that you want. There's only so much you can fit into that little square on Instagram. To me it just seems more instant and engaging to put up a picture on Instagram. I don't have to invest as much coming up with the content for a post, I can do several Instagrams pictures a day and the gratification is instantaneous. I love blogging, but sometimes it feels too far removed. I even have an editorial calendar, I know what I'm going to post days (sometimes weeks) in advance. I'll be honest, this might all be sparked by the fact that I've been feeling a bit burnt out with blogging lately. My life has just been so busy that I haven't had a chance to really create the content that I want and know you all deserve to see! So maybe that's why I'm loving Instagram so much, I get to create something pretty for my friends and followers and it's not so high pressure!
I'd love love to hear your opinion on this....is blogging a dead or dying art form?
