@sku\_b I want to believe that personal blogging will make a comeback, however, I think there’s certain perceived barriers that put people off as many still believe it’s complicated to start your own blog/website. The other issue I see is how people can interact with each other this way, comment boxes generally attract toxic comments so people remove the ability to comment, and unless you go for a blogging platform like, you’re effectively in your own house wondering if people are actually reading your writing. The other pushback I’ve heard from some of my IRL friends is that they don’t want to manage their own servers, databases, and all the other bits that go along with running your own blog. Obviously I suggest to these people so they can see they don’t have to do it all themselves.
