Ed is right. Blogging is basically dead for all practical purposes, and what a loss.
The other issue at play, and this is an ongoing problem, is that blogging is a dead art form. Social media won. People are down to visiting all of, what, four websites? And anything that isn’t channeled through that medium doesn’t exist.
Social media is so inferior; the worst dominate all. All nuance is lost as the level of discourse is that of third-graders squabbling over a piece of candy. And podcasts are incredibly slow and 80% boring. I have no time for those. I can read at least a dozen times faster than a podcast can tell me anything. As one commenter sort of points out, one can enjoy reading something, but audio must be endured.
