    Rated 4.6/5 stars (39 votes cast)

    It's been a while since I last posted any blogging tips so today, I'll be talking about a common mistake. The mistake many new (and sometimes old) bloggers appear undertake

    And that would be, Double blogging... Here's how it goes

    You're new to blogging. You discover that this thing is Amazing, you love it. You discover that you have "the blogging bug" you decide that you're too committed and too enthusiastic about it and you decide that one blog is not enough. What do you do?

    You know that it's pretty much free to create a blog on Wordpress, Blogspot, Jeeran or many others and you run to that site, 15 minutes later you're the proud owner of your amazingly -empty- new blog.

    You look around, and you decide that you have to fill some content and you actually start writing because, you're enthusiastic and passionate about blogging. Wonderful!

    It all goes well until ....

    You discover that you're writing in one blog pretty much what you're writing in the other. At the same time, you're neglecting your blog and leave it as a fertile grounds for spam and drive-by comment.

    So the advice of the day is, DON'T create more than one blog unless you really suffer from chronic bloghareah (look-up definition here).

    So new bloggers, (and old ones) listen up

    1. Create one blog
    2. Focus all your available time and energy on this blog
    3. If you have extremely dissimilar content use a nifty tool that's available in every blogging engine (that I know of) and is called: Categorization!
    4. Use tags if you have to
    5. Promote one blog not two. It's easier and trust me. And remember, there are cases where the sum is less than the total of two. This is one of them
    6. Don't distract people or confuse them with what you're doing

    Now, there are certain occasions when a second blog is really mandatory. Like for example, Summer has two blogs, Sammoura and MimiCooks. But that's because the content is completely dissimilar and they don't fit together. There are other examples of bloggers who have two blogs. One that is public, another that is private. Or one public and another one that is Anonymous/incognito. It's a must sometimes to preserve their identity.

    But for all practical purposes. Don't create more than one blog. Play in more than one blogging engine to understand which one is better suited for your needs and your preferences. But when you decide on one, make it THE ONE!

    Don't worry, blogs are not like magazines which pretty much have a rigid presentation. Your blog can be exactly like your personality. A mix of everything. It can have the theme and colors of what you're wearing. So don't sweat it. Don't make it too much of one thing. Or it will eventually lose it's very soul

    Double blogging is like cheating. It's like cheating on your blog with some other sleazy-slutty blog, just say NO

    Happy blogging y'all

    "It's like cheating on your blog with some other sleazy-slutty blog, just say NO"

    I'm so clueless, I had a vague notion sammoura and mimi were the same person :)

    i do feel torn about maintaining both blogs but i thought many times about closing down my personal blog, but i like it :)I am just getting so lazy and busy about blogging there, maybe one day i will..who knows!the cooking blog is much nicer and more fun to maintain...in a way my cooking blog is more rewarding because i feel that "some" people get something out of reading it...they learn something new and it is fun watching the video recipes.i was a bit scared about the rumor of closing down blogs at blogspot so i had to create two more blogs on wordpress to save all my posts...we'll see what happens next. i hope blogspot will stay online and what was said about it was just a rumor. thanks for the mention and the links.

    I like it when people split off into different pages of the same blog. If you don't care about the topics on a page, you never have to go there.
