Blogs Back In Style

Being a blogger, I really like the open and independent web. So when I read a recent article that mentioned old-school blogs coming back in vogue, I was stoked!

Beyond that, though, we’ve grown ever more aware of the problems with centralizing the internet. Traditional blogs might have swung out of favor, as we all discovered the benefits of social media and aggregating platforms, but we think they’re about to swing back in style, as we all discover the real costs and problems brought by such centralization.

Score another point for the indie web with a prominent site moving away from an aggregator!

Last year I wrote about celebrating the blog and hoping for a renaissance in blogging. In it, I provided several links to posts by others who also share hopes for blogging. So the new quote above is like adding fuel to glowing embers.

Maybe 2019 will be a year of further push-back against Facebook with a resurgence of bloggers, old and new, linking up a better, freer internet.
