Is it possible to manage 2 blogs successfully?

24 replies
I'm thinking of creating a new blog during the summer. But most experts I have read says stick to 1 blog only, not multiple blogs (2, 3..., etc.)

I want to have 2 blogs but I'm afraid that 1 might take away from another? How many of you guys own 2 or more blogs? Is it a good idea or what is your opinion on this?

    My friend Eliezer Yudkowsky does just fine at it, and he writes a much more difficult and technical blog than most.

    I owned more then 20 blogs. Most of them I setup my self and a few I hired someone to create it for me. I only focus 3-4 of my blogs. So, I think 1-4 blogs is okay.

    But I know there is WF member that has more then 100 blogs...

      I have about 20 blogs.

      Stay organized and make sure you focus on what is working and you should be fine.

      I didn't start off with 20 blogs though so if you are confident with 1, why not add more?

    Most of the time when you see recommendations to just focus on one blog, it's because they don't want you to not spread yourself too thin. A lot of newcomers will start a blog; then start a review site to promote a CB product; then create an Amazon site; you get the idea.

    Some people have a hard time sticking to one method, so they'll try something for a week, then give up once it doesn't make hundreds. If you think you can handle both without giving up on one, then do it. It shouldn't be too difficult at all.

      yea, but if you are starting out, stick with 1-2 blogs...rather than spreading your time + efforts on many more

    I would definitely start with 1 and build it up. If you can move on and still give each blog the appropriate amount of time then go for it.

      Yes, you can have more than 1.

      It is not like a wife, where you are just restricted to having one lol.

        If you want to focus on adding quality content that really matter to human readers, then managing more than 3-4 blogs at one time can be difficult.

        However, after you've built up enough traffic, you can set a few on autopilot and move on to building more blogs. By that I mean, blogs that require posting new content less frequently than when you are building up traffic to a new one.

    Depends on how much time you have. One good one is, in my opinion, better than 2 poor ones. But 20 good ones is better than one good one!

    Sure you can create an many blogs as you can handle. Remember just the ones you can handle otherwise you wouldn't do justice to any of them. It's still better to have one functional (profitable) blog than 100 that is just a pain in the neck.

    I think the most important part is passion.

    If you are writing content for a "real" blog intended to be read, then you must be passionate about the topic. If your subject is a flash-in-the-pan area of interest for you, then it will be difficult to maintain regular posts over time.

    If it's just a blog for SEO purposes and you plan to outsource content later, then let 'er rip!

    Good luck.

    At the current time, I am managing 7 "successful" blogs in various niches..

    Our team has over 100 and we cope fine with them. We also have a whole host of others that we are gradually building into stronger portals...

    Only you will know if you can make time for more than one successful blog

    Peace

    How much time are these guys spending on managing their blogs?

    For me, I can manage a dozen or so successfully...all part time. Yes, go for it. If it doesn't work out for you , sell it off. Multiple blogs = multiple income streams...and that's what it's all about, right?

    It just depends what your going for. I have over 7 blogs. IMO each new website should be linked to a blog. If it's a personal blog there is no need to have more than one. If you're doing niche marketing than feel free to have 600 blogs

    I find that by the time I get a blog up to the top of page one, for a subject I am not passionate about, I eventually reach a point where I can barely stand to look at it any more, let alone continue posting. Just my 2 cents.

    If you don't mind sticking to a schedule and doing monotonous blog posts day in and day out (or outsourcing/automating) then the sky is the limit, right?

    Anybody else have so many websites out there that they start to lose track after a while?

    Good luck. I think you should create as many as possible until you start seeing income start to fall the cut back. The more the merrier.

    I have one main blog that occupies 50% of my time and 3 others that I use to drive traffic to the main blog. This seems to work for me.

      Are they hosted on the same domain ?

        Most definitely. If you're just starting up a new blog then you'll most likely want to dedicate more time to it at first to get things rolling, but after that it's just a matter of splitting up your time evenly.
