I often get asked is blog writing is still a thing in 2023 – here’s why it’s immortal like Keith Richards

It’s 2023, and people keep asking me if blog writing is dead or if it’s still rocking the world like Mick & Keef. Well, hold onto your socks, folks, because blogs are doing more than the moonwalk – they’re delivering a head-banging solo in the digital concert of content. Just like my music taste, good blog writing is timeless – it keeps on rocking.

Unleashing the Immortal Power of Blog Writing

Even in our ‘Black Mirror’-esque digital age, blog writing stands tall like a rebel with a cause, playing the enduring power of the written word like Hendrix rocked his Stratocaster at Woodstock. It’s a stage where thoughts and ideas are not just expressed,they’re etched into the annals of the Blog & Roll Hall of Fame, achieving a form of immortality like Keith Richards.

In a sea of TikToks and Instagram reels, blog writing is like your favourite vinyl record. It brings about a deeper connection, a richer narrative – it’s genuine, personal, and just brimming with heart – it also sounds (and smells) so much better eh? Blogs can touch lives, offering comfort, sparking inspiration, and providing a whole new perspective, just like the way ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ can send chills down your spine every single time. Mamma, ooh ooh ooh. 

And let’s not forget that blogs are the ultimate open mic night for your thoughts and feelings. It’s 2023, and nothing’s cooler than being yourself (especially true for Bob Dylan). Through blogs, you can explore your passions, address issues close to your heart, or share personal narratives – much like Morrissey’s lyrical soul-baring in the ’80s.. without blogs, your SEO is going to struggle –  “Oh Google, I can see the rankings falling over my site…and as I log into an empty analytics dashboard; Oh well. Enough said” (not, the Smiths)

Blogs are the Rolling Stones of inspiration and motivation. Through personal triumphs and lessons learned, bloggers have the potential to ignite a spark within their readers, reminding us all that we Can’t Always Get What We Want, but if we try sometimes, we might find, we get what we need. Preach Mick, preach. 

The SEO Side: The Blockbuster SEO Impact of Blogs

On top of the emotional and artistic punches that blog writing packs, they also wield a secret weapon – SEO. Blog posts are like Hans Zimmer’s scores – when done right, they elevate the entire experience, and before you know it, Google’s spotlight is shining right on you. They attract organic traffic, the lifeblood of any site, like a headlining act draws a crowd.

Blogs also come with the gift of credibility. In the wild, wild west of misinformation, a well-written blog is your trusty steed, helping you establish authority, just like Clint in a Spaghetti Western. 

The Human Touch: Like a Tarantino Dialogue in a World of Bland Scripts

In the digital space, authentic blogs stand out like Kubrick masterpieces in a pile of straight-to-DVD movies. Human-written content has a unique voice, a personal touch – something that even the smartest AI can’t replicate (we’ve all seen Terminator 2 – it doesn’t end well when we rely on AI.). And just like the trusty narrator in ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, blogs build a sanctuary of trust, drawing readers back with an insatiable hunger for more, like the sweet taste of freedom after years of confinement. You read that in Morgan Freeman’s voice didn’t you?  

This connection isn’t a one-hit wonder; it’s a chart-topping classic that keeps getting airtime. By consistently providing valuable content and actively engaging with the audience, bloggers can create a loyal fanbase. It’s like being part of a dedicated fan club, with newsletters and social media interactions replacing meet-and-greets.

Blogging in 2023: Like MTV’s Evolution but Cooler

Blogging today is more than just words on a screen – it’s a multimedia rock festival. Alongside text, you have infographics and videos adding a visual splash, making the experience as immersive as a Pink Floyd concert. Hey man, don’t bogart that joint. 

Video blogs and podcasts are the new rockstars of content, providing an engaging alternative to traditional writing, like how MTV revolutionised the music industry. Add in interactive elements like quizzes, polls, and surveys, and your blog becomes a jam session, fostering a stronger bond with your audience. 

Collaborations and influencer marketing? They’re the digital age’s version of a supergroup. Team up with other bloggers or influencers, and you can tap into new fan bases and ignite a frenzy of fans, expanding your reach faster than the British Invasion of the 60s. 

And in the End the love you take is equal to the blogs you make… I think Macca said that. 

So there you have it folks, just like vinyl records and rock ‘n’ roll, blog writing in 2023 is far from being a thing of the past. Its ability to connect, inspire, and captivate is a timeless classic, and the SEO benefits are the cherry on top of the digital sundae. Blogs provide a unique, human touch that makes them stand out in the digital crowd, just like a rockstar in a sea of boybands. So let’s crank the amp to 11, and keep on blogging, because this concert has a never ending encore.
