Even the top blog sites which earlier were boasting a large volume are now look deserted. Every thing reaches a saturation value sooner or later and same thing is happening in blogging field.
Still, there are some quality blogs which give researched and authentic material in a very presentable form and attract good traffic once a person has seen that level. So those blogs which are able to maintain their performance and quality are still making good money out of that activity.
Knowledge is power.
You need ask yourself, from 2009 and 2019 Google is making more money or not? If google is making more money it means more money is made by bloggers and webmasters. Only thing is the game is changed in one decade. More authoritative blogs / website with great content and good user experience are getting more and more traffic.
So, If you are not successful than give one more shot. Who knows you may get great traffic in 2019
