Do you think blogging has changed over the last few years? Well I think it has for me, at least over the last 3 years that I’ve been blogging.

One of the most obvious ones that strike me most is on blog commenting. I can see a big change in the way people are doing their blog comments. While I still received good, quality comments on this blog and I’m grateful for that, I’ve also seen a big increase in the number of spam comments. It became so bad a few months ago that I had to resort to changing my plugin setting to moderate and approve all new comments. I do apologize if this has inconvenienced you and if you much preferred to see your comment showing up immediately. However you may like to know I approve all good comments within the same day.

Secondly, I am finding the trend shifting towards blogs over-focusing on how to make money blogging and profiting seems to be the only motive. This I believed is caused by just too many blogging softwares being developed and made easily available in all markets. They seem to be appearing at every nook and corner. At times I feel that the intentions of these powerful tools were developed with a somewhat different purpose only to land in the hands of some over zealous Internet Marketers – those who knew how to showcase such tools to their advantage and to quickly launch a new product.

Today people are more inclined to cover topics that they know are going to return them some quick profits. Many are also resorting to auto-blogs and it seems that such blogs are becoming very popular especially for starting niche blogs. Perhaps it’s a smarter way to make money blogging. What do your think? But just to prove a point how much people are caught up by auto-blogs, I Googled it and found plenty and one of them goes like this : “….you are about to discover the secret blueprint to creating niche-dominating, optimized blogs that run on complete auto-pilot and practically forces money into your bank account…”

Over To You….

So what kind of blogging changes have you seen over the years and what do you think how the make money blogging niche will evolve in the near future. Perhaps it’s a natural progression and we should go with the flow and ride the tide and learn how to make money blogging this way? What do you say?

  1. That's right Peter.. Many blogger now a days don't give importance for what they are saying. They just only want to have a baclinks from other blog .. Some are spam and not related. Thanks for sharing you thought..

    Hi Peter,

    I was already thinking in this way that blogging has changed its trends. Bloggers are not enough passionate about giving out something best to the readers they just want to monetize their blog. Once they achieve their target they are no more concerned about the quality of content. They just post articles one after another to get noticed by others and that is it. Can we do something to change this trend?

  3. Hey Peter,

    I can certainly agree with your perspectives. I've seen the same thing over the past couple of years, if not longer. Most people are too eager to make a quick buck without providing any value to the community at large, let alone their own readers, or what's left of them. Money to me isn't as important as building relationships and being open and honest with my readers. In fact, by doing so, you'll probably end up making more money than you would otherwise.

    I think auto blogging is here to stay even though I personally would not recommend it. The spam issue for one think is just so annoying.

  5. peterlee says:

    @Work At Home: Yes I agree with that building relationships is an important part of our reason for continuing our business. We always have our up and down moments and when we encounter a bad situation, it's usually the few good friends in the blogosphere that help to keep our sanity in check.

  6. peterlee says:

    @lmee:I agree with you about auto-blogging. It is the “in thing” now. I also don't think Google or anyone can stop it too at least not now. Most of them look really good and Google bots just can't tell the difference – only humans like us can.

  7. peterlee says:

    @ cathy @ Dubai Mortgage: Can we do something about it? No! because there is a blog born in the blogosphere for every half a second that ticks away. We could however turn our own blog into something that people appreciate and look for – all the qualities of a quality blog.

  8. peterlee says:

    @free classifieds: Yes that's true and these are the people who usually enjoy proving that content is not always king.

  9. cathy @ Dubai Mortgage says:

    Thanks Peter Lee for responding. The most important thing that ticks in the mind of every blogger is “what are the qualities that must be there in a blog to make it standing out of the crowd?” I think you must write a complete post on it.


  10. First Congratulation that you are getting good comment, actually comment should be relevant your post..i have run my own blog and i have also received lot's of comment in a day…
