What Happened to Good Writing?

Lazy Sunday Evening. I decided to dig up some of the old blogs I used to follow and see what they were up to in the last five years. Funnily enough, more than half of them do not exist anymore. And the others, they’ve either moved on to being ‘professional’ bloggers or have changed entirely.

The former group of blogs is flooded with sponsored post or obviously sponsored posts but they’ve been paid extra not to mention it. It is all about products – books, phones, baby diapers, make up and clothes – written about because they are paid to.

What happened to good writing? What happened to intelligent content? Who reads this plague of what looks like Sunday newspaper catalogues?

Perhaps professional blogging isn’t the nicest thing that happened to writing.
