Are you dreaming of starting a blog in 2020, but you think that blogging is dead? I get you. It is a saturated industry where competition is fierce and there’s so much online content already.
You’ve probably wondered: “Am I too late for this?”, “is it worth starting a blog in 2020?”, “would I be wasting my time?”
I asked myself the exact same questions when I started my first blog in 2018. After all who wants to take risks for nothing, right? But creating a blog has been one of the best decisions I’ve taken since it has brought many benefits to my business.
That said, if you want to know where does blogging stand in 2020 then read this brief post.
