Blogging │ Concentrating on one blog

19 October 2009

 

This post was originally uploaded when this site was hosted on Blogger.

Broadly speaking, there are two schools of thought on how to organize blogs. The first school advocates specialization, which means creating a blog for each specific topic or niche. The second school argues for concentrating on one big blog rather many shallow ones.

I adhered to the first school of thought that stressed the need for a clear theme for a blog. I think that would have worked, had I been more dedicated to blogging and more narrowly focussed even within the specialized blogs. However, I realized that I am actually a pretty lazy person, and found it difficult to maintain a number of different blogs to a high standard. There were also quite a bit of overlap between different blogs, and such made linking inside and between them a headache.

So, after a spasmodic evening of activity, I integrated one website and three blogs. It has made it much easier to update, though I still have some doubts whether this was for the best.
