The internet has always been weird, but it’s getting weirder. And if you’re a blogger, marketer, or business owner, there are some important ways you can take advantage of this trend. First off, what do we mean by “weird?” “Weird” is a vague term that here refers to the relative obscurity of content on the web; in other words, a piece of “weird” content is a piece of content that covers an unpopular or new topic, or one that explores a topic in an inventive or strange way. Over the years, we’ve seen the rise of millions of blogs dedicated to highly obscure topics, from ugly Renaissance babies to “real” anime food, and the most popular viral videos on the web went from being simple music videos to the capture of rare events or absurd publicity stunts.
