Dear friend, you are right, we can see some thousands of blogs these days, but only few get popular because of the content they share. Bloggers write articles which are most browsed on internet with good English and right information. Generally, people browse about technology articles, about cooking, beauty, politics, business development etc.

A blogger logger should have a good command on what he is writing. According to me, advantages are 1. A good time pass, 2. Good earning from Ads, 3. Sharing your views/information with others, 4. Lots of friends etc.

Disadvantages, 1. Should give some time in a day to write/edit/post an article, 2. Keep working to improve your blog, 3.Read other blogs to get to know about the drawbacks in your blog etc.

I can see many new blogs rising but Google's new algorithms and artificial intelligence search results will be threat to lot of bloggers. For example, there are a few websites which post only about launch date and price of mobile phones. Now Google is capable to give direct answer and the users need not open the website to get their answer. I can see there is redundancy in niche, especially the tech news gets repeated in all websites.

According to me, big advantage of blogging is earning and you can work from home and post articles whenever you like. As a part time blogger I don't see any disadvantage and full time bloggers may experience bitterness when Google comes with new algorithm or Google disable AdSense ads.

Robot Journalism
Few days back I read an article related to robot journalism. It means software can write an article with little or no human help. If it happens it will be huge threat to reproduced article writers. Only the people who can write innovative article can stand in the market.
