Hello BitrusTheBlogger and welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com]

It *may* be helpful if your normal mobile-friendly site loads slow. Why don't you read through some of the discussions in the AMP forum [webmasterworld.com] to get an idea of experiences from other members.

It *may* be a good idea to enable AMP but I would base the decision on your traffic and web performance. If you find most of your users are on feature/low-end phones then AMP could help greatly. Just be forewarned that in a lot of blogs/themes AMP is entirely different so you would need to integrate any advertising/marketing/analytics into those specific pages. I know a lot of people enable AMP and see their revenue drop not realizing AMP is an entirely different them to integrate everything back into.

Yeah, I've integrated AMP on (My Site) and got positive impressions in SEO...
It'll increase the time spent on the blog and so will decrease the Bounce Rate. Integrating AMP will let your blog post load instantly and so will eventually increase the Mobile browsing rate of your blog.
So I recommend you integrating the AMP on your blog.

I would recommend you to use AMP but if your website is mobile responsive and fully optimized for mobile view-port then you don't have to use AMP. It will be considerably.

Think of the audience, device, results.

Also think of payouts, ad service (spend and revenue).

Amp is dumbed down HTML (really dumbed down) for a niche market (growing, but still niche), that is being supplanted by a growing, more capable SMART PHONE market on more robust data plans/bandwidth.

Way I see it AMP is a transition technology with a short life span.

Might want to think hard on AMP. MEANWHILE, think device/res (responsive) and you can't go wrong.

Amp is dumbed down HTML (really dumbed down)

There is nothing that is dumbed down in AMP, to the contrary AMP is a highly streamlined form HTML. It includes only the elements that are necessary and sufficient. Also AMP is only one component of the many that make up the PWA infrastucture. So you can use it in its simplest form, that is to display a page or you can integrate into a PWA, making the app both fast and easily discoverable.

AMP's main purpose is to get the first page view onto the users screen as quickly as possible. Once the user clicks past that first page, it's up to you.

Should you use AMP for a blog? It is a simple use case with mostly static content so it would be relatively easy to implement. However, if you are using a CMS like WordPress and then using plug-in to convert to AMP, to me that seems like it would uselessly bloat things.
