Is Blogging Becoming Unpopular?

Is Blogging Becoming Unpopular?

I personally, cant bear to think that this could be true!!! Its my latest Cuppa and Chat post, grab your brew, lets get stuck in.

I have been a blog reader for about 8 years, and just love finding new blogs to read, as well as religiously reading all the ones I follow. I am noticing however, that many, many bloggers seem to be keen on starting YouTube channels, and as lots of the blogs that I have followed over the years seem to neglect their blog once they start YouTube, this worries me!

Let me explain. For me, blogging is all about the writing. I love to write. I love words. I love that sometimes I can say in writing what I want to say, far more elegantly than I can when I speak! This love of writing also transfers over to a love of reading. I adore reading. (yeah, I said adore, thats how much I love it). For me, I find that I can read a blog and it totally resonates with me, or I can connect with the person writing it on some level, and feel a kindred soul (Im not looking up your addresses bloggers, don’t panic, I just like your words). I love the variation in the blogs that I follow and read, and if their passion comes across for their subject, I get excited with them. (especially travel blogs at the moment, Im obsessed)

I don’t get this with Youtube. I do watch YouTube and enjoy it, but if Im honest, it tends to be put on when I am getting ready or doing something in the kitchen. Im kind of half watching it if that makes sense? Or, if I am looking to try to make something DIY stylee, like I did at Christmas, I will search it on youtube to see if I can find a tutorial. I rarely connect with a YouTuber like I do with a blogger. I might like the dress they have bought, or the bag that the are unboxing, but I don’t feel them. For me, they are like a one night stand, (not that I would know how a one night stand feels fyi) I see what they offer, Im entertained for a moment, then I move on. (I do have a couple of exceptions by the way, ones I have a more meaningful, long term relationship with. Im looking at you Niomi Smart, Pixiwoos and Sophie Shohet)

Blog reading however, makes me feel something. I can read a blog post, and it stays with me all day. I find myself thinking about the words, understanding the point they are making, and wanting to sit down for a G&T with the writer to discuss further. I feel like I get something from reading a blog post, it expands my mind in some way.

This is why I get fearful when people say, “oh blogs are dying out”. It makes me panic. (ok, panic might be a little dramatic, Im not looking for a paper bag to breathe into, but you know what I mean). I hate the thought of my favourite bloggers ditching us readers for YouTube. Forgetting about us for their new, shiny vlogging cameras and ring lights. I know that some YouTubers do successfully keep quality content going on their blogs, but its not many. More often than not a token post gets popped on once a month to keep their “blogger” title.

I know for bloggers that are looking to make this their career, YouTube probably has to be considered. It seems that you only get that level of success (as in a full, profitable career) if you have YouTube. Its quick and instant gratification isn’t it. Its fast knowledge. I get it. I also get that brands love a YouTuber, so if your aim is to do lots of sponsored content etc, then YouTube is probably the way forward.

Maybe in part, this is where my inability to connect with them comes from? I feel sold to constantly, and thats not my bag. Years ago, bloggers shared products etc on their blogs, because they bloody loved the item and wanted to share. There was no real money involved, so it all felt very authentic and honest. Im not saying for one minute that people who have a lot of sponsored content and gifted items are not sincere and honest, but I do find myself disengaged and questioning some, when every other item they feature on their blog/YT channel, they are “”obsessed with”” or have discovered (in a week) “”the most amazing serum”” that they cannot live without. I mean, Im fickle but do I change my mind weekly on my foundation? Nope!  I also love that people are earning their living doing what they love, isn’t that what life is all about? I think its amazing that people are making fabulous livings from creating content, but I just cringe at the way everything is constant advertising and selling. I want some soul in what I take time to watch or read. I hope that this sell, sell, sell is not the way of the future, (even Instagram has become a huge selling platform, booorrrinnnggggg).

I suppose what Im saying, is I want to read blogs for ever. I want to feel the words and find myself nodding or shaking my head vigorously as I read. I want to see close up photos of the products and how the person got on with them over a few weeks. I want to feel like I am chatting with a friend, who is sharing her beauty tips. I want to read about the amazing restaurant you visited or the hotel you fell in love with. I want to be educated about how life is with a disability or a mental health issue. I want to feel the authenticity and realness of your personality. YouTube seems to me, to be a little “cookie cutter” and same old, same old.

I think by now, I have made my point hahaha

Basically, Im scared that Im about a month away from donning a sandwhich board and a placard with the words “Hands Off Our Blogs” and marching round purposely with a bobble hat on, slightly deranged……… Im self medicating with your views and opinions, help me!

So, over to you gorgeous lot. What are your views? Do you agree with me or think Im being too protective of the written word? Do you think blogs will die out? Id even love your views on whether you think everyone starts a blog now as a stepping stone to YouTube?  It would be amazing to hear from some of my readers that I know are not bloggers, your opinion here would give a different angle. As always, I would love you to discuss this with me. Lets chat!

    I do not think blogs are dying out, but I know some people are starting blogs now as a way to money through ads and sponsored content. However, there are still tons of bloggers like me that do not make any money from their blog so our posts are more authentic (even if I did sponsored posts, I know I would still be honest because loyalty is built on trust and I would not recommend anything I did not like). I also agree Instagram has turned into a huge selling platform, and I have been avoiding Instagram recently. For me, I do not have any plans to start a YouTube channel. I have been blogging for almost 2 years and it is not something I see myself doing. Also YouTube recently changed their requirements to become monetized so that is deterring me even more and I think a lot of other people who want to start a channel but haven’t yet.

      Oh Im so glad you think that! I love writing my blog, and reading blogs so this is music to my ears haha. Thanks you for joining in the discussion x

    I was thinking about this the other day – it seems like a lot of people are going over to YouTube but I definitely don’t think blogs are dying out. I know so many people who are just starting out or just falling in love with blogging. It’s a shame there’s people that do the thing you said about posting once a month to keep their title but I guess they’re the kind of people who just want that ‘internet fame’ or whatever. There’s so many genuine bloggers out there and I absolutely love getting to read their blog. Really interesting post Kerry, definitely made me think a lot about why people blog and the future of blogging xx

  3. January 26, 2018 / 10:11 am

    I feel like most people watch yt now rather than reading blogs, it’s just easier as you don’t have to read blog and schroll through you can just listen. But there is something so special in reading a blog and having a cup of coffee, it’s definitely my morning ritual. xx

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 3:51 pm

      Yes its the easiness of watching youtube that attracts people, I think your right. Especially if people are not really readers. Im glad you feel there is something special in reading a blog, I feel the same way xx Thank you for your input xx

    I feel the same way about blogs, I love writing my own thoughts and reading those of others and I don’t feel the same connection with video at all. Recording a YouTube video isn’t something I’d enjoy doing myself.as I’m just too self conscious! I find I’m reading more and more blogs all the time 🙂

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 3:53 pm

      Yes Natalie! Virtual high five! There is something special in being able to write and express our thoughts isnt there. Youtube dosent have that same intimacy. So glad you feel the same way xxx Thank you so much for stopping by for a chat, much appreciated x

  5. January 26, 2018 / 11:11 am

    I completely agree with you about writing: I just love writing, and a blog was the simplest way for me to write and find readers 😊.

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 3:54 pm

      Totally agree Niall, its such a great way to connect with people. I feel like I chat away with the people that read and comment on my posts, and I like that! Glad you feel the same about writing. Thanks for stopping by

  6. January 26, 2018 / 11:14 am

    Like you I feel more connected when I read something than watch on YouTube. Off top of my head I’m thinking people are branching out for 1) exposure which leads to 2) money. I hope blogs are not dying as I so enjoy writing, interacting and connecting. I guess part of our job is to keep it going!!

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 3:56 pm

      Thank you so much for joining in the chat. Its made me really happy, all the comments as it seems we all feel the same passion for reading and writing blogs. I may not have to get my sandwich board out after all haha

  7. January 26, 2018 / 12:49 pm

    This is my big dilemma- after 3 years, I think, it might be nice to make a little amount of money, even if it’s just to pay for my WordPress plan! But then it’s ultimately countered by my unwillingness to push things on my readers, or go the back-handed route of RStyle type links. I have been burned by SO MANY bloggers pushing sponsored items, that I’m over it… I also just have to ask, do they think it’s normal? “I have five Barbour coats, this is my guide to when to wear which”- well, I probably will never own five. It just feels inauthentic. Thanks for sharing!

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 4:01 pm

      I love this point of view, thank you so much for joining in! Just the very fact that you feel this is a dilemma, I think, means that you will stay authentic and true to your readers. You are aware of the constant pushiness we are all subjected to, so would be mindful of that. I am all for bloggers making money, 100% they should, we work hard, but I am with you totally on the “5 Barbour coats”lol. Some lose that integrity. Youtube seems to facilitate this don’t you think? I think you should definitely let your blog earn for you though, you have a great attitude towards it xxx

    I think it’s a balance, I don’t think that doing sponsored posts is a bad thing, but if that is all the content you’re producing are you actually being genuine? I really want to help people with what I write, and it does take a lot of time (and money since I’m self hosted) to produce what I make. I know a few professional bloggers who do 1-2 sponsored posts a month and everything else is just them. Also, you can always refuse to write a review or a post if a you don’t feel you can support a product, and you can even get creative about how you present what you like about it.

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 4:05 pm

      That sounds like fabulous balance. I think you have it right. Im 100% for bloggers and youtubers making their content work for them, we all know how hard we work to produce our posts. Its the “rammed down your throat” aspect Im not so keen on, but its certainly not just in blogging and youtube! Iv done a couple of sponsored posts on things I was passionate about, and I enjoyed doing them. Id just hate to see blogs dying out because youtube is quicker cash if that makes sense? Thank you so much for joining in and putting your opinion in, its a great point xx

      • sgmart187
        January 26, 2018 / 4:15 pm

        I certainly agree with you there. My husband and I have considered adding Youtube, and we may still do that, but I really love writing!

    This is a really interesting topic. I was talking to my bestie about this the other day. I think maybe things have changed but blogs are still very popular especially among younger people x

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 4:09 pm

      Ohhh thats so good to hear. Iv had a few of my fave bloggers go over to youtube, and I miss them blogging. I think maybe I want the world, I want people to youtube so I get my quick fix info, and blog so I can really get them. Im not asking much hahahaha! Thank you for your comment xx

  10. January 26, 2018 / 2:54 pm

    I really admire your love of blogs and I think there should be more people like you! Honestly, YouTube is a huge thing as video consumption is definitely more favored. However, I don’t think blogs are going anywhere. Take ManRepeller for example. That website started as a personal blog and now many people love to read it. So, I think that there will always be content for people to read for sure because at the end of the day there are websites like ManRepeller or ThoughtCatalog that garner a ton of attention. I think with any creative industry, it will be harder for bloggers to break through. I mean we’re seeing that with YouTube at the moment too! Ultimately, I think as things change and as readers change, we as bloggers will have to adapt as well.

      Ah thank you, Im a passionate gal about the written word haha! I think you have made a great point here. Established blogs are still thriving, and hopefully, there will always be an audience for the intimacy of the written word. I think if people are blogging for career prospects, in some way, they are forced to go down the youtube track too? The have to have that video presence? I also like your point that we need to adapt as our audience changes and their needs change. Thats a great point. Thank you so much for joining in the chat, you made some fabulous points xxxx

  11. January 26, 2018 / 3:04 pm

    Girl, I’m in the same boat. I love reading blogs, and when a blogger mentions their youtube channel, I always find myself wishing I could skim the long silly intros. Something about a girl gushing over a diferent product every video makes it feel so fake. I know I CERTAINLY don’t have the cash to spend on new products day in and day out. I feel like there’s a great place for youtube channels, but bloggers who turn youtubers doesn’t feel right. Not that I don’t think there’s a place for that… Gosh now I’ve gone all wibbly-wobbly and don’t know what I think.
    I just don’t want blogs to die.

      Hahahaha! This made me laugh so much. I totally get what you mean. I feel like I want the best of both worlds. I really, REALLY dont want blogs to die out, but I also want the quick, superficial entertainment of youtube. I just dont want my favourite bloggers to abandon me haha! Thank you so much for coming over and commenting, you made me laugh, (but also made great points) I appreciate you joining in xx

  12. January 26, 2018 / 3:29 pm

    I totally see where you’re coming from. For me, my Youtube is just a fun side thing to do that allows me to show my personality a bit more, but I neglect that in favor of my blog. I think as long as there are passionate readers out there, blogs will always be around. Too many of us love words 🙂

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 4:23 pm

      Thank you so much for commenting, its great to get the view of someone that does Youtube too! Thats interesting that you are more into your blog than your channel, that is reassuring! Do you find the youtube video creating as creative experience as blog writing? I will pop over and check your channel out xx. Thank you for your input xx

      • January 26, 2018 / 7:08 pm

        I definitely find the process of writing more cathartic, and more satisfying in the end. But I was a theater person, so I like performing and talking as well, but YouTube just takes SO much more time and work, plus I need the right lighting and all that, so posting a blog post is easier in that sense. I just like to do whatever feels right for what I’m posting about. And my YouTube is really just a support for my blog, to add in a little something different here and there! 🙂

  13. January 26, 2018 / 4:03 pm

    This was a great read! I actually just did an Instagram story poll the other day about whether or not a blogger can be as successful as a blogger and to my dismay, over 80% said no! I’m not into YouTube really, and I hate taking videos. I’d much rather write and create some photos for that specific blog post. YouTube is taking away the blogging industry I would say.
    A wonderful read! Enjoyed this very much 😁

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 4:28 pm

      Well I am over the moon that you enjoyed the post, thank you so much for stopping by and reading xx. Im not so happy about the outcome of that Instagram poll, but I think I would have guessed that would be the result. This is my worry. Im the same as you, Youtube just dosent satisfy my creative curiosity. I watch it for a little light entertainment, but when I read a blog post, I genuinely feel I learn or see another point of view. I love it. I will order you a sandwich board too, we can march in our bobble hats together haha! Thank you for joining in the chat, much appreciated x

  14. January 26, 2018 / 4:49 pm

    I don’t think blogging is dying down at all. I know a lot of people since YouTube has changed has said they want to start a blog. I think it’s such a fantastic thing to do, it creates so many skills. Like you I adore reading and love writing and I do photography as a degree so this is perfect for me.

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 8:27 pm

      Im so pleased you think that! I agree about it being a fantastic thing, it has brought far more to my life than I ever imagined. Photography is one of the areas I really struggle with, do you have any tutorials on your blog? Or plan to?? Thank you for stopping by and reading x

      • January 26, 2018 / 11:18 pm

        I don’t have any tutorials, but now you’ve said it I’m sure I can do one so keep an eye out 🙂 x

  15. January 26, 2018 / 5:31 pm

    Well, I have two blogs and a podcast, but I hate making video content, so I’m not going to be abandoning blogs for Youtube any time soon!
    I know what you mean about blogs – I love reading.It’s funny, for me, the concern is that Instagram is taking over blogging – some people get so carried away with worrying that they have the perfect photos and then barely write anything to go along with them. Each to their own, but if I follow someone’s blog, it’s because I want something interesting to read. Of course photos can enhance that, but I still want words!
    I do follow some Youtube channels, but I’m much more likely to engage on blogs.
    Have a wonderful weekend! X

People get so stressed over their numbers and their perfect photos. I think thats why its my least favourite platform! Im glad you wont be abandoning us anytime soon, you too have an amazing weekend xx

      • January 27, 2018 / 4:49 pm

        I’m not even on Instagram! One of the blogs is work-related, so I find work time for that, but I think really I just like them because they’re a great way to share ideas and connect with people!

  16. January 26, 2018 / 5:54 pm

    I certainly hope blogs are not dying out. I just started blogging and I want to be successful with it. I blog because I want to make a career out of writing and want exposure AND because I simply love to write. It is my art form that I use to get me through my mental illness. So I kind of need writing.
    I seriously consider starting a Youtube channel every now and then so I can highlight my personality more as it’s sometimes difficult to get it across in writing. I just can’t get through the panic attacks of filming myself. So for now I will be sticking to only blogging. Hopefully, your fears are unjustified and blogs will continue to flourish.

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 26, 2018 / 8:33 pm

      Your blog is amazing Lindsey, I am positive you will find success with it. I am the same as you, writing satisfies some need within me, I have always wrote, I will always write. Im sure if you do start Youtube, you will still be passionate about your blog, you have a passion xx. Thank you so much for coming over and reading, I love the points you have made xx

      • January 26, 2018 / 8:50 pm

        Thank you so much. I’m definitely trying. It’s weird how satisfying writing is. It’s like pizza, even when it’s bad it’s still good feeling and satisfying.

    Fact is the ‘rush’ of everyone and their dog starting a blog is dying out. The champs remain and will do so for a while yet. The people who did it for a quick payday have moved onto YT and they’re unfortunately flooding the platform now with the tried and tested formular of Zoella etc. I say let them, I don’t watch YT videos and only really put one one when I’m getting ready and filling some time. I’ll happily sit I’m here still reading my fave blogs 💖

      Well this comment makes me very happy! Im with you, I can read blogs for hours, youtube just gets put on as background stuff. I like the point you make about being being for a quick payday, thats an angle that I hadnt thought about. Great point. Thank you so much for joining in the discussion, I love all the opinions people are sharing. So interesting. Appreciate your comment xx

  19. January 27, 2018 / 9:56 am

    I can understand the draw of YouTube, there is something more instant with it as you said in your post. It’s a shame people are becoming more drawn to instant gratification rather than being in it for the long haul, blogging is a great place to build your voice but it does take time. I have been blogging a year and come to realise it is a long term project but it is one I absolutely love doing. Writing gives me so much more happiness than recording a video because I have to work on perfecting it. I have really enjoyed reading blogs and as much as I still like watching YouTube a blog post gives me so much more

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 27, 2018 / 1:05 pm

      Yes Yes Yes! Totally agree. Like you, I absolutely love writing my blog. If I didn’t write a blog, I would still love reading them, Iv been a fan for years. I think if us lot that have discussed this topic on here have anything to do with it, we will have blogs for a while yet! Yayyy! Thank you for stopping by and adding your view, much appreciated xx

  20. January 27, 2018 / 4:45 pm

    Oh I agree with you, oh how I agree. I love writing, I love the written word, I love reading, I love reading blogposts like one reads books or magazines. I like reading a variety of topics. New bloggers or old favourites. From all countries.

    I can’t do youtube. Youtube bores me silly. I don’t really watch videos or vlogs. Hell, I rarely watch TV or films! I lack attention span when it comes to sitting still and watching something. Give me a blog or book to read and my full attention would never waver.

      January 27, 2018 / 8:19 pm

      Ohhhh you are talking my language Linda, 100%. I am exactly the same, Im not really into TV, so when my mob are watching whatever it is they watch, I get my book out and read, or read blogs, and like you, read all sorts of topics and types. I think my soul is beginning to sooth with all the positive comments about blogs people have left. It makes me happy. Thank you for joining in the discussion, I appreciate your view xx

  21. January 28, 2018 / 3:48 pm

    I totally get what you mean! I think in some way, youtube videos are very staged too – the content creator is talking at a camera and it mimics a real life conversation to some extent but it just doesn’t feel genuine most of the time. With written blogs, it’s a similar thing but I often read blog posts in my own voice, and maybe it’s this element of having a conversation with myself when reading someone’s blog post that makes it feel more real. xx

      January 28, 2018 / 4:15 pm

      Ohh that san interesting point! Yes, maybe we can personalise a blog post/book/magazine etc. Thats a great point of view. We all know that feeling of reading a book, visualising the characters then the utter devastation when the film comes out and they are not our vision! Ruins it for me. We have made that book/post personal to us. I love it, you have made me think now! Thank you so much for popping over and joining in my lovely xxx

  22. January 29, 2018 / 11:10 pm

    I feel the same!! I feel as if a lot of people are moving onto YouTube instead, but I’m really not interested that platform at all. I’ve always preferred reading blog posts accompanied by photos, than watching something! xx

    • kerrylifeandloves
      January 30, 2018 / 9:30 am

      Its weird isnt it, I suppose everyone has their favourite way of gaining information, but Im with you a million percent, reading and photos is the best. Thanks for stopping by my lovely xxx

  23. February 1, 2018 / 10:21 pm

    Wow, how nice to read this post! I also love to read blogs. I love to read about people’s lives, and connect with people in the way that is possible through written blogs. I don’t have the patience to watch vlogs or even tutorials (I prefer to have them written so that I can browse to the part I want to see) but I use You Tube kind of like Netflix or to find good music.

    My problem has always been the commercial side of blogging, not that I mind that people are able to earn money from blogging, but I think it changes blogs so much, or at least it used to. Years ago it was all about giveaways that made people stop writing their usual content and their blogs became uninteresting. Now it’s more like an entirely new blogging concept, less personal and more business-oriented, and that seems to have become the norm.
    I miss the old way of blogging, where you could get to know people through their writing. Posts were more personal and not just short bucket lists or tutorials.
    But there’s still lots of good writing out there and I would, like you, worry a lot if the written blogs would disappear.

    However, I believe there is a core group of people who enjoy writing, take an interest in people and their writing, and I think they will always be there to enjoy quality writing. I think people will eventually get tired of Instagram and other social media platform that are constantly developing into something less user friendly and where you are constantly fed “things we think you should like”. At least I hope so!

    Sorry for my long rambles!

      Ohh please dont apologise about a long ramble. Thats exactly what I love and invite on my blog, and especially in the “cuppa and a chat” series. I am so pleased that you too prefer the written word, its so good to hear that so many of us still adore that. I do think you make a good point too about the commercialism of blogging, it does change it. I think maybe for me, I have that passion for writing on my blog as I have no real ambition for it to be my job, I have one of those that I enjoy. I just love to write! Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a great view, I really appreciate it. i hope to see you again, hanging out with us lol xx

    Eep I really hope that blogging isn’t dying out…i’ve only just found my coping mechansim for staying sane with a toddler! I hadn’t even realised that YouTube was the new blogging medium and only watch it for tutorials and Thomas the tank engine (with company of course 😉 ). I love how reading can make you lose all sense of reality in a way that watching tv can’t . It is difficult to read properly but to be also thinking about what to cook, when the washing will be ready etc etc which is so easily done with one eye on the tv. Long live reading and long live blogging 🙂 thanks for a very thought-provoking post!

      Ahhh I am so glad you share my love of reading. I am happy to say, that if the comments on this post are anything to go by, our blogs are safe, we can put our sandwich board away and delay the protest march hahaha x. I totally agree with you about reading being an escape, I can lose myself in a book, or a great piece of writing, tv and youtube is just a casual distraction. Id never cheat on reading with it……. I am thrilled that you have found blogging, and it really is a great coping mechanism, I hear ya! Thank you so much for reading, and taking the time to comment, it means a lot xxx

I love reading your comments x
