I was thinking about this today because I’ve read some wonderful blogs recently which I can see are getting no attention whatsoever. And I started to wonder if perhaps we’ve reached saturation point in the parent blogosphere. There are now so many new blogs starting up, but if I think about the blogs that are best known or most read these still tend to be the more established blogs. Some newcomers manage to rise to prominence quite quickly, but others just disappear into the ether.
Of course there are those who will say it doesn’t matter if your blog is being read by lots of people, or indeed anyone, but I’m not sure there are many parent bloggers who don’t (even if it’s somewhere deep down) want to be read.
How do you even get your voice heard if you’re a new blogger now? When I started blogging I think there were maybe 500 parent blogs. Now there must be at least 3000 – maybe more.
I’m one of those bloggers who never stops telling people to start a blog. But is it right to encourage people to start blogging? Or are they going to have difficulty making themselves heard?
I’d love to hear your views.
