I was reading a mom’s site the other day and she was talking about how people should only have one blog because you can’t focus on too many. I got to thinking about how many different blog sites that I have–lots! Am I sabotaging myself by having too many blogs? I don’t think so. Here’s why…
First, some of my blogs are really websites just running on WordPress as a means of content management. So while it is true they are “blogs,” they are really niche websites where I just add content weekly using WordPress. I would say that most people in affiliate marketing have multiple websites.
Second, one of my blogs is tied directly to my biggest business (Sunshine Rewards). And it is a completely different type of blog than the rest because it is videos only. Plus, I have other employees that help me generate the content for it.
Lastly, and most importantly, I don’t think readers of one of my blogs would be interested in the content from my other blogs. Are you here because you want to read about chocolate? About being a work at home mom? If you were, you would go read those other blogs. Granted, this blog is supposed to be more random….so you never know what you are going to get from me. But that in itself is a niche…it’s a blog about the niche of Tricia Meyer. (Thrilling, I know…but you are still reading, right?)
In the end, I’ve decided that it’s perfectly fine to have multiple blogs as long as you are not just repeating the same content and you are keeping them fresh. It doesn’t hurt to cross-promote your blogs a little bit either. How many blogs do you have?
