I've seen a number of people make similar predictions. "I think 2019 is going to bring a resurgence (well, 'return' or 'rise' or 'comeback' might be better words) of blogging." I think most of these predictions are coming fdrom people who embraced social media wholeheartedly and are now having regrets. Steven Krause writes, "Social media feels kind of tippy-pointish to me right now. I increasingly have friends who have either opted out of social media entirely or who are now a lot more careful about how they dose on it." Well here's the news. Blogging never went away. A lot of it has shifted to newer platforms (Ghost, Medium) but the people who are doing the cutting edge work have always been blogging about it. And still are.
