The short answer? Yes. Blogging is still worth it. From the inception of the internet and into the future, blogging is worth it. 4 major reasons why, below.

People will continue to create online
The digital economy is valued at $16 Trillion(Capgemini) and its forecast shows it may double in the next 5 years. A big part of this economy is content.

Most content comes from articles people write to document what they know or experience. You can say that blogging is the act of documenting your experience, views, or knowledge.

Everyone is on the internet and almost everyone is creating. Which leads to a new problem. There is more noise than value on the internet.

Blogs are still in demand
If you have a unique take, interest, or expertise, then there is room for you in the blogging world.

Despite popular belief, a good amount of people still read. Just look at the top 10 highest earners from targetinternet.

  1. Tim Sykes, timothysykes.com: $1 million per month
  2. Chiara Ferragni, The Blonde Salad: $250,000 per month
  3. Melyssa Griffin, melyssagriffin.com: $238,000 per month
  4. Sarah Titus, sarahtitus.com: $200,000 per month
  5. Pat Flynn, The Smart Passive Income Blog: $200,000 per month
  6. John Lee Dumas, Entrepreneurs on Fire: $195,000 per month
  7. Heather Delaney Reese, It’s a Lovely Life!: $175,000 per month
  8. Jeff Rose, Good Financial Cents: $135,000 per month
  9. Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman, A Beautiful Mess: $125,000 per month
  10. Alborz Fallah, CarAdvice: $125,000 per month

Figures based on reporting from FounderJar.

All of them have one thing in common. And that’s the unique view or knowledge they share with the world. Good thing is everyone is unique. Including you.

The hard part is figuring out what unique part of you is valuable to others.

But if you have personality and you write well, then you can probably make “toasting bread” an interesting read.

Blogs can earn direct or passive income
Of course, it’ll take a while for your blog to earn you more than your day job. But it’s not impossible. There are also other indirect ways your blog can earn.

Popular blogs earn a reputation for the author. Reputation gets you known in your specific field. And there is no shortage of people who would buy what you know. Especially, if you know how to package them.
