Tips for Managing Multiple Blogs

There is no denying that managing more than one blog can be a difficult task. And if you are going to do this without the help of others, you are most definitely in for a rough time; at least during the beginning stages. But with that being said, there are many people out there who are successfully managing multiple blogs. If you want to be next, it is going to take a high level of efficiency and dedication. And that is only the beginning.

Are you thinking about starting another blog? Do you already have more than one that you are trying to keep track of? If so, the following four tips will help you to successfully manage all of your blogs.

1. As you probably know, managing one blog can be time consuming. You need to find time to make regular posts, while also marketing with gusto. This alone can take up several hours each day if you want to do things right. On this blog alone, I spend at least 1.5 hours per day making sure that everything is running smoothly. And even then, I find myself answering emails late at night in order to stay in touch with readers.

If you are going to manage more than one blog, you can pretty much multiply your work by that number. Since I have a bit of help, I do not struggle too much with keeping my other sites up to date. But with that being said, I still like to do most of my work without too much assistance. To succeed with this, it is essential for me to outline daily goals. Example: for this blog, I strive to write at least one post per day. Along with this, I always make anywhere between 20 and 40 comments on other blogs that are similar to mine. Finally, I add in other time consuming measures such as guest blogging and other marketing techniques. And this is all in addition to my day to day freelance writing projects.

2. As mentioned above, I do have a little bit of help from time to time; and there is nothing wrong with this. Even though it would be nice to do everything on my own, there are simply not enough hours in a day. If you are going to run multiple blogs, in particular more than two, you are probably going to have to hire some help. Find out the area where you need the most assistance, and then seek out somebody who is reliable enough to get the job done.

3. If all of your blogs are somehow interrelated you will have a much easier time keeping them current. For instance, if you have a blog on basketball, start another on a particular player within the game. This will allow you to do all of your research in one area. Not to mention the fact that it is probably something that you will enjoy!

4. Never start a new blog until you are 100 percent comfortable with where your current ones stand. Why put more on your plate if you are having a hard time working with the blogs that you already have? You should not be in a huge hurry to jump into another venture. Take your time so that as you move forward it is easier for you to sustain your current workload.

Managing multiple blogs may not be easy, but it can be rewarding on both a personal and financial level.
