Today I saw this tweet:
Stefan von Imhof wrote that 97% of all blogs are defunct after 3 years. I tried to check if it’s true but the only data I found was that 95% of blogs are abandoned.
The main reason that people give as to why they stopped blogging:
- they hoped more people would read it and comment
- they hoped they would earn money from it, one woman gives $4k a month as an example of how much she hoped for
- too busy
- they lost personal privacy
I guess the odds are against me, there’s a 95-97% chance that I will stop blogging within the next 3 years. We will see.
