I have been blogging for four years. I got some revenue through the ads on my blogs and some of them still continue to make a little money. However, during the last couple of years, it’s become more and more difficult.
Blogging Versus Article-Writing, and Which Will Help You Sell More Books
The old ways don’t work so well anymore. It’s time to go where the readers are
Yesterday, when I read this story about blogging, I literally laughed. “Blogs were cool,” he wrote, “But those days are over.” I totally understand what he said.
The world isn’t looking for your blog.
He suggested writing on platforms which already have lots of readers, he was not recommending specifically Medium though.
It doesn’t have to be Medium. You may find other platforms more interesting. Yet, I agree that it’s time to take advantage of other platforms. Creating your site from scratch is no longer worth much.
After I read his story, I felt more confident that I am moving in the right direction. There is no perfect platform in this world, but at least Medium has a bunch of people who like reading.
I always try to be sceptical about online information because it is easy to get the wrong idea or misunderstanding on the Internet. Still, when somebody wrote exactly what you are thinking, there is nothing to do, but smile.
