Blogging is deadBlogging is dead

Lastly, the uncomfortable query I’ve been attempting to keep away from for a few years now.

Is running a blog generally and journey running a blog particularly useless?

I’ve by no means been knowledgeable blogger nor was I ever a daily blogger churning put up after put up from come rain or shine from airports, resort lobbies, prepare tops, and bathroom seats. I’ve at all times thought-about myself to be a pastime journey blogger who tried to increase his journey by reliving it by writing the weblog. That’s the reason you’ll discover many weblog posts on desi Traveler are extra like I’m speaking to myself someday sooner or later as I relive the great previous days.

I might give to myself that at one time I used to be very enthusiastic about scripting this weblog and conserving it in high form. However someplace someday up to now, the precise time & date slowly eroded from reminiscence to ease the ache.

Initially, I didn’t notice that I had decreased writing, possibly it was deliberate as I attempted to metamorphose right into a dancing diva because the ever-changing algorithm of apps like Instagram demanded. However that was to not be the case as neither dancing nor 10-second storytelling is my forte.  Don’t get me improper I’ve the best diploma of respect for individuals who have been in a position to commerce their pens for dancing sneakers & gyrate in entrance of every thing and each scenario from graves of useless emperors whitewashed as monuments of affection to leap with pleasure in the midst of a abandoned highway in Ladakh.

For a while I solely did the month-to-month journey calendar because it saved me motivated sufficient to do at the least one put up a month. However within the post-Covid period as my library of photographs dwindled and I didn’t journey to new locations for two  years at some stage that too stopped.

At some stage, I spotted that this isn’t occurring to me however numerous very energetic bloggers have both stopped writing or shifted to Instagram or Youtube or each to share their journey tales. A few of them succeeded huge time and a few of them are nonetheless struggling however proceed to strive. ( My greatest needs to each the teams ).

All this led me to consider that running a blog is useless and I don’t take pleasure in running a blog.  However each every so often I’ll come upon a weblog put up by fellow bloggers who have been nonetheless writing and sharing their posts. Infrequently I may even be tagged by them within the put up or will obtain a mail or message to learn and share their put up. I might learn these posts and would inform myself that I ought to begin writing once more.

However then once more the years of inaction will take over and that promise I made to myself will stay unfulfilled. However someplace the urge to start out writing was nonetheless lingering in me and I wished to jot down however the thought that no person would learn my put up saved on haunting me.

However then I made a decision to return to the start of this weblog after I began writing understanding very effectively that no person could be studying my weblog. And each every so often when any individual commented on my weblog it was like receiving my very personal OSKAAR Award for running a blog. 

So I made a decision to start out writing once more for the sheer pleasure of writing as I began touring once more and likewise publish the numerous untold journey tales that I nonetheless have. I’ve been attempting to inspire myself by telling myself repeatedly:

  1. Write since you take pleasure in it.
  2. In the event you write a weblog put up readers will come
  3. Even when the readers don’t come it is best to write since you take pleasure in it.
  4. Learn level quantity 2 and three once more until you begin doing level no 1.
  5. Begin writing since you take pleasure in it and the loop goes on.

So lastly right now After I logged into the weblog admin panel after ages my motivation was ready contained in the weblog.

After I logged in I discovered greater than 40 feedback have been ready to be answered. Whereas a lot of the feedback have been JUNK Feedback by skilled SEOs who’re attempting to get linkbacks from desi Traveler, it nonetheless made me suppose

  1. These SEOs are visiting my weblog and writing feedback ( or doing it with the assistance of some automated script/software program). And the truth that these guys have been doing it made me notice that there should be one thing about running a blog that these professionals know that I don’t actually
  2. Then in my weblog mailbox that I get by way of the contact type, there have been greater than 100 requests for visitor posts/ commercial costs queries and so on.
  3. However the most effective half was discovering 5 messages from budding bloggers who wished ideas from me on writing blogs and beginning a running a blog journey. 2 of them even wished to know if I might rent them as interns for desi Traveler.

Whereas not all of these items occurred in a sequence or precisely how they’re talked about within the put up however they occurred and so they imply loads to me and that’s what issues to me.
