There is an ongoing debate as to how many blogs can we really manage concurrently. Some compromise content quality and quantity by attempting to manage too many blogs while others have the ability to maintain multiple blogs, which are updated regularly and kept interesting. The number five is somebody’s recommendation and can be anybody’s and actually be any number too. The key is to have a thought pattern which helps decide what can be run optimally by different bloggers. The following pointers might help.
Primarily the material content needs big time protection. Bloggers who are into multiple blogging need to be cautious about ensuring that the material content of all blogs remain original. Even when the blogs are theme related it is a guarantee that the blogger must believe in and work out that he would keep the postings fresh. This may assist visitors to read rather than gloss thinking it’s a repetition of something read earlier or elsewhere. Further it should also assist regular visitors to the multiple blogs to keep doing it, rather than visit in rotation or visit only one. There is also strong advise to bloggers to keep away from plagiarizing similar themed blog content. Forget about fines, it is incorrect and without honing blogging skills it blunts them.
The second important factor about the number of blogs to maintain is the ability to keep them updated. Bloggers who do multiple blogs are advised to keep updating them by at least one post a week, so the content is always fresh when a visitor gets to their blog. If a repeat visitor finds after a month that the content is the same he is bound to think of it as redundant and never return to it. Regularity and fresh content can make the blog and interesting place to visit. Even the most informative blogs rapidly loose traffic as soon as one thing suggested in the earlier blog has changed and has become common knowledge but not updated in the blog. The continuously changing Internet makes users finicky about lethargic cites and slow moving blogs. Some even recommend a daily update, which is quite challenging. Could you imagine how much more it would be if more than five blogs are maintained. The number five dictates, that each blog be updated one day of the week barring the weekend.
Finally finding the time to work. Those who maintain multiple blogs should be doing some budgeting of time. The allocated time can be decided by looking at the needs of the blog. If you are having a thematic blog you need to have some time to get fresh input. It might be observations, interviews or the work experience getting diarized daily. Secondly you need time to respond to others. When you ignore responses the responders will surely stop. The counter responses cannot be cursory which communicate that you do not have time. Thirdly the blogger needs to be researching other blogs to see what’s in the air and to be kept savvy on the theme he has chosen, what the attitudes of the visitors are and of the visitors in the competitive blog. Time administration is of essence. Can you see yourself doing anything more that five blogs?
