This post I am writing is for all bloggers. You write for yourself or for your readers but do we know how the Blogging will change in next 100 years. I am going to talk about how blogging will change the life of an individual and how it will shape in coming years.
Blogging as career option –
The time is not far when people will choose Blogging as career options. We will also see people start blogging in partnership. Many people will also leave their jobs to become the full-time blogger. Harsh Agarwal is a good example.
Maybe in next 100 years, we will see college courses in Blogging 🙂
Engagement is more important than comment –
The way the people share and engage the post is going to change. You will rank high in Google or other search engine based on the sharing, engagement and not comment.
I am expecting to see a single way of sharing content for a blog post, instead of sharing it with 10 different social media.
Responsive Blog is the future –
The future of the blogging is the responsive design. There will be more devices and your blog should work seamlessly on all of them.
You will see a lot of responsive themes in the market and it is important you should choose one of it for your blog.
Please find some of the recommended responsive themes:
Blogging speed will be very important –
The way the internet speed is increasing, your blog should load within seconds for the visitors. In future, there will be no scope for slowness or latency.

More readers as prices of internet will be reduced –
In the developed country where the internet cost is still high, the advancement of technology will lower the Internet cost. In next 50-100 years, the broadband prices will be reduced by at least 50%.
This will bring more readers for your blog.
Content creation tools –
As the time passes, the blogger may run out of blog post idea and may need the tool like SemRush and Buzzsumo to get new ideas.
Semrush is a great SEO tool which will let you find trending post based on your search keyword and also let you know what competitors are writing about.
You can get content creation idea from this tool and know which topic can bring you more traffic.
Buzzsumo is another great SEO tool which can perform keyword research for your keyword and let you know what is trending and getting shared.
Theme development is a great business option –
As the market of blogging grows, there will be more demand for Blogging themes and theme developer will have a great time. There is definitely a great career and business option in themes development.
We will see a lot of generic and customized theme development in the future.
Some of the recommended WordPress themes:
Networking will be everything –
Half of the visitors for the blog comes from personal networking. We may see the new platform to connect bloggers. Something like the Facebook just for bloggers will be great.
I am hoping to see something like that in next 50-100 years.
More Collaboration among bloggers-
You will see in future, there will be collaboration among bloggers for a single post. A blog post is written by several bloggers and they all add their value point.
It makes the content more useful and add a personal thought to it. It will be a very interesting feature we want to see in next few years.
Blogging will have a great time ahead. There are a lot of career opportunity lies ahead for the young generation in blogging.
There are going to be a demand of blogger, blogging theme developers, blogging tools, content writers, plugin developers, marketing developers etc.
