What should you do before starting a second blog?
Not just one blog but the more blog you want to start on, there are a few thing that you should know about when you are really going to launch your new blogs. And…
…let take a look at why would some people want to start a new blog for:
A different Result than you Expected – Sometimes a new blog is launched simply because something isn’t producing in the right way you want and you’re plan to redo it with a new blog to reach your goals.
Topics Problem – Thinking of blogging on a new topic is absolutely normal simply because you’re over being with your original blog’s topic and if changing it, it might help you get your interest back to your original blog’s topic.
Has Something New – This will help you gain back your interest on the old topic, once you got burnout on your new topic and that is a benefit. Why?…
…because the longer you stay on a topic the more people will see you as an expert on that particular topic in the future.
Before you’re actually going to start a new blog, here are 10 factors that you should know before you launch it.
1/ Are you launch a new blog because of your existing blog?
Sometimes, your first blog really needs another blog to push your original blog up. However, if you didn’t get the right result that you examined on your original blog and it’s great to re-examine it on your new blog.
2/ Will you have time?
Working on your computer is very time consuming because sometimes you get distracted from many things like games, Facebook, Twitter… And most bloggers are working so on a part-time basis, if you’re intended to manage another blog, it could have a significant impact on your schedule.
3/ Are you ready to Compete with other Niches?
Every small topic has a their own niche, it can be big or small…
…and of course some topics can be easy and hard to compete but based on a person experienced who stay on a particular niche for a long time, it can definitely be hard for those who hasn’t known well about that topic to compete with, so all you have to do, is, enjoy what you like to do.
4/ Should you double up your Social Media Profile?
Every single person has a new blog, they usually have their own social media profile.
For example: Chris Brogan from ChrisBrogan.com has it Twitter name @ChrisBrogan which means if you have a different domain name, you should as well definitely want to create a separate social media…
…so readers can follow up with the latest updates you’d like to share with them.
5/ How will it affect your blogs?
If you’re new to time and your focus, be sure that you balance the time you spend on each of your blog.
Or another best way is, to find out which blog is you’re the most important and spend the most of your time on it.
6/ Can you use your existing strategies to PUSH your new blog?
All strategies at blogging are all the same for every single niche, but it depends on what you’re blogging about.
For example: If you wanna get traffic, one of the best ways is to guest post and leave comments around blog.
But if you wanna get targeted traffic, all you have to do is to guest post on blog that are blogging as the same topic as you and leave comments wherever you want.
7/ Can You Transfer readers?
One of the best ways to transfer your readers to your new blog is to promote your new blog in the original, you can either
- link to your new blog on your navigation bar,
- write a review and post it on your original blog,
- Notice your readers via email, social media and much more.
8/ Will you run out of ideas?
There are huge ideas out there but really have to see how you can picture them and share them with your readers.
One of the best ways to keep your ideas flow in is to read more in topics that you’re blogging about and you will never run out of ideas again – while you’re reading, don’t think about what you’re going to write.
9/ Should you hire a client?
Managing multiple blogs is truly busy. Should you hire a person to take part of one of your job so you won’t be too busy?
…to help with only one small thing and when you hire someone, you don’t need to negotiate with them via money but there are many ways hat you can deal with it, you can ask to do something back for them and depends on what your client really want.
10/ Do you have enough sleep?
Having enough sleep is important, instead of sleep late wake up late, you can sleep early and wake up early. (8 Hours a day for sleep)
