What experts tells the future of Blogging
Snehlata Jain, a well-known blogger from Mumbai raised a valid point and shared that it is so important to make people understand “Who is a Blogger?” She even mentioned “Blogging in 2022 needs to be focused on clearing basics, having apparent knowledge about SEO, Keywords and all”
Blogging for over 6 years on her blog blogsikka, she added that ” Even brands need to understand the importance of blogging so that bloggers can monetize through their blogs.”
“We should write the articles for our readers and not for Google and need to focus on one niche. To make the audience understand the language should be simple” added Priyal Blogger of Parilifestyle.
Taking discussion ahead with a millennial blogger Surbhi who shares her views on her blog, confidentially shared that she sees “the future of blogging in India super solid and incredibly bright, but it is equally challenging and competitive at the same time. In the upcoming year, the blogosphere will grow at a faster rate but only those bloggers who have a firm determination to learn new skills and keep themselves updated will survive longer in this ever-competitive field”.
She added further, “ In fact, our PM Narendra Modi has put much emphasis on the use of digital media and digital marketing to create more job opportunities and use the social media platforms in promoting products and services.” Agreeing with the fact, that “the growth and development of blogging and social media platforms are impressive but, it has become equally demanding and challenging too. Nowadays, along with written content, people are getting attracted to visual (videos) and audio (podcasts) forms of content. They want unique, trustworthy information daily in various forms. I feel lucky that I had witnessed that era properly when blogging started growing gradually and then became a promising career option for the new generation. During covid era, blogging has gained immense popularity and become the main part of online marketing strategy for MNCs and businesses.“
“Conclusively, India’s blogging future is bright and secure. However, having a solid blogging strategy is essential for bloggers to survive in this overcrowded market for a long time.” She concluded her thoughts.
