It’s meaningless for you to keep on maintaining your personal blog sites. Just give it up and completely embrace social media.
But if you are blogging on some professional niches,share your expertise or technology on some field,you blogging website can’t be replaced. You will have organic traffic from google or other search engine. Blogs or websites on professional niches still be exist even more and more people spend time on social medial, because these blogs and websites have special contents which is not easy to get from social media. And website owner can make money from it, making the positive encouragement for them to continue to maintain and update more contents to their blog and website.
