I’ve noticed lately that the top bloggers are slowly sliding down the slope of internet has-beens. Traffic is down considerably for sites like JohnChow.com and ProBlogger.net, and this could be the beginning of a new trend we see in the blogosphere.
While both sites still produce a fair share of readers, the content being produced isn’t what it used to be. ProBlogger’s posts are still informative, but I believe he hit his peak late last year. When you look at JohnChow’s site, most of his posts are food or travel related; very little money making information anymore.
I’ve seen this happen many times before with other blogs… whereas a site builds its presence and brand only to stray away from the topic it’s actually based around. Some call this being lazy, while other bloggers call it being experimental and taking your readers for granted.
Personally, I believe blogging will only get bigger, but the blogging superstars we’ve come to know might not be around for much longer if they don’t try to remember how they got to where they are in the first place.
What do you think? Will the ‘big boys’ be around much longer?
