My Goals with this Blog...

Are to document my experiences with various income streams and programs in my quest to becoming a full time freelancer working from home. I plan to list my current 'eggs' and to post the things that have and haven't worked for me.

Revamping my Blog Army.

Posted by tehblogging trolless | 2:41 PM

On DoaEwa, I had discussed my future plans to beef up my fleet of blogs. As you all know, I have my first gaming blog that I considered my 'main blog'. Kinda of how people have characters in MMO games - their main (usually first) character, and their alts. Alts tend to be a different play style from the main, but more importantly do professions and things that the main cannot.

My alt blogs were a way from me to talk about differing sides of my self and so like an alt character, didn't think about them too much. I submitted my main blog to many a web directory, even the Yahoo directory. I'd maybe put my alt blogs into one or two. Then my main blog got a bit big. It started to rank on its sub pages even and began to get offers being set to it all the time.

It was awesome but - I only got offers to that one blog. Not the others. The main blog had a certain niche. A specific niche which had me declining other off topic blogs for the sake of it not looking too spammy. My other two blogs I could be freer with- but most dislike non ranked blogs...even if they are just as juicy.

Funny even was that when I stopped blogging as much on any of them, the PR ranked blog was still getting hits. Mind you that one had a lot of article directory links. Coincidence? Not likely. And so I've decided it was time to help out the alts. I want to spread the wealth amongst all three. Ideally I'd like to write a sponsored post on all three per day. Blogging this way would

  • 1. It would keep my intrest in maintaining all three equally.

  • 2. It would balance out the feeling of spamming as the paid posts would be not in one spot.

  • 3. I would be updating them all on a daily basis

  • 4. And even more importantly would have more to offer my audiences in writing. Wanna talk geekiness? Go to my gaming blog. Wanna talk personal stuff - go to that blog. Wanna talk money - come here.

  • 5. It would build up my writing resume.

Besides why have one busy ranked blog when you can have 3? Greedy? A bit. But I feel like my children should grow. I like blogging, and growing them out to something fun to read is a fun job. Doing it half assed isn't gunna fly anymore. So expect fun posts not just in one place, but in this blog too!

My first plan of action? To start hitting the many web directories. They are going to see a lot of me and this blog. Every article directory that I can find is gonna get hit. They are a great source of linky love and this blog could use it!
