It is true that when you have successfully managed a new blog, then it will not be a tedious process to start another blog in another niche.
However, the problem is that you may start spending more time on creating the new blog, which if course is a requirement, but not at the cost of all the hard work that you have poured over your first blog.
You will not like to lose your blog traffic due to your own negligence. What is required here and is to be discussed at the moment is learning to manage more than one blog at a time. Follow these simple tips, and see how magically you will turn out to be great in time management.
Here are they,
1. Know your limits
You should know whether you will be able to manage one more blog. If you do not know whether you can manage one more blog, then do not start with another one.
This is essential that you need to have a very good work-life balance, in other words, you need to spend time on various aspects of your life and career like friends, family, your first blog and work.
2. Dedicate a Time slot for the blog
It is a good habit to maintain a dairy and abide by it. Dedicate some time for your new blog. You will find that with your old blog getting bigger, you can still make this run if you are not dreaming that big with what you can reduce sometime, and use that time to be included in the time that you are going to allocate for your new blog.
3. Never abandon, rather sell your old blog
There are number of reasons that you would like to start a new blog in a different niche, you might have got exhausted or you might feel that working on the old blog is becoming more mundane and boring.
When this being the case, and you are determined to work on your new blog, rent the old blog to someone else so that you can still generate some revenue without losing harvests of your hard work that you put in creating your first blog.This will also give you enough time for working on your new venture of your first blog.
4. Keep your blogs up to date
Be it your new or your old blog it is highly essential that you keep both of them updated with latest information so that you will invite more readers for your new blog and will not lose the traffic that you have built on for your older blog.
Moreover, you can connect both the blogs by using back linking and divert readers of your older blog to your newer blog.
Many of them might be interested if you are going to work on a new blog, which has a niche that is much closer to your older blog and that’s great you can save on your time while creating the new blog.
5. Hire writers
There are many good blog writers out in the market, who are not actually tech savvy, but can write really well. Hire such people, which will not be a considerable cost to the company, and will help you a lot, in managing more than one blogs.
You are going to be much privileged if you are going to hire from second and third world countries like the Asia-Pacific countries and Africa, to whom you will not be paying quite a lot of money.
So how do you manage multiple blogs at the same time ?
