You hear it more and more often: blogging is dead or Almost dead. It’s the thing your grandparents started but kids these days are on snapchat, periscope or one of those other new channels.
If they are looking for a review on a machine or book (if they would still read a book, because wasn’t printed media dead too??) they check YouTube and not Google. Blogging is the dinosaur way of getting your message across.
300 words? Or more?
But is it? The average attention span of people is short so the “rules” are that you should write no more than 300 words in a post and that post should have a few good quality images too to break up the lines of text. But on the other hand you hear people telling you that some of the most ‘viral’ posts are 2000+ words and no images at all. In other words: it’s a damn confusing business and for someone starting out with a brand new blog it might be frustrating too. Here you are with a spanking new blog and no one is reading it. Even worse: people tell you it is doomed and you should go to Instagram or better snapchat.
