    Is blogging dead?

    Is it still as profitable as it used to be? Is it worth pursuing?

    I was wondering because I own a popular blog that Ive just left without writing a new post for over two months and Im not sure if I should return to it. Im still getting consistent traffic from it without doing anything (thank you SEO :) ) but dont know if I should go back because I have zero inspiration to write anything.

    P.S: By blogging I mean blogging, not autoblogging.

    Not sure what you mean by "dead"... your blog sounds like it is dead at the moment.

    Getting traffic from Google can make you money... enough said

    Sell it off to me. I am all hands for it.

    I think you dont know the potential a BLOG with descent traffic has.

    I know my blog has potential (Im ranking for some big keywords) that get me 1k-2k consistently everyday. Its just that Im not inspired to write even though I love the topic of the blog.

    Do you know of any good ways to get inspired?

    yeah, you don't make sense, you say you have your blog has traffic, and you say you are interested in the traffic, if you are interested in it's traffic then keep it alive, keep it working, and you don't have to write long post, you can write a 50 word essay about some others blog and then link it to them. You don't need inspiration to write, you can converse with your visitors, write a post for them to read. if you care for your blog, then you will care for your visitors, it's them that's giving traffic to your site. That way people will still think your blog is active.

    It's dead for those who use sub-quality autoblogging software (I mean those "everyone have" premium plugins that even do not spin the syndicating content) and not smart enough to make their blogs unique.

    If blogging is dead, we might as well close the internet :D

    Blogging is still alive and still profitable. At the moment it's your inspiration that is dead :p
