Is One Blog Enough?

Multiple Blogs?

We have many writers asking, “I have multiple interests, what will I blog about?”

This is a common question when our company is hired to set up a blog. Many people have a topic of interest, whereas others know they want a blog but not sure of the topic.

Take-away

Like magazines, some blogs contain a variety of information about a broad subject.

Other blogs are very succinct and only include articles about one specific topic.

When setting up a blog, some experts say a blog should be topic specific and named appropriately by including the “topic” in the name of the blog.

That sounds all well and good, however if the name of our blog is overly descriptive, we could limit ourselves with regard to what we feel we can blog about.

So, what’s a blogger to do?

Use one blog, regardless of the name and share whatever we want?
Set up a new blog for each topic we want to discuss?
Create a blog with a name that could encompass any topic?

Conclusion

If you use my blogs as an example, a blogger can post whatever they want on one blog, create a new blog to encompass new topics, or choose a name for their blog which allows them to be more versatile.

There is not a single right answer. It depends on you, the writer, the individual responsible for creating the content.

    I have multiple blogs. It seems like it is the best way to share multiple outlets rather than having one, generic label.

  • Having multiple blogs is like buying different properties. You don’t want to concentrate all the risk in one huge skyscraper, instead you want to buy many small buildings and use each one of them for a specific purpose.

    Also having multiple blogs usually means owning multiple domains. If tomorrow one of your domains is penalized by a Google Panda update or banned from one social network (you never know what can happen on the web) you loose just one property.

  • It can be difficult to manage more than one blog and still maintain a high level of quality, but if you implement the right strategies the rewards can be well worth it.
