About introducing new sections in the blog

  1. Hello,

    I need a suggestion. I am thinking about writing more on general topics apart from my mainstream technical topics. The blog about which i am talking is http://phoxis.org or http://phoxis.wordpress.com .

    My question is if and how it will effect the blog, by posting general topics, everyday writing, which may not have any link with the technical stuffs. Or is it a better idea to start a new blog about generel writing, and keep the focus of the current blog.

    The blog I need help with is phoxis.org.

    I have no idea what your main blog is about so I would suggest you start a second blog for anything else (ie those of us who don't read techy).

  3. Thanks @roughseasinthemed . I also think it is better to start a new one.

  4. Actually, my advise is to stay on the same blog and just use categories to differentiate.

  5. you could add categories,on your main blog, and create a custom menu, so everything will appear in order

  6. I already have a category "Writings" in my primary blog, but I conciously try to keep the post count on that topic low, so that the main theme of the blog does not dissolve. Also I try to keep the posts under writing to the theme.
    In the main blog I try to post articles which are well edited. Therefore I thought it would be a better idea to start another blog with a casual theme.

    I still agree with you. I think there is a world of difference between as you say, a 'casual' blog and a specific one, especially if it is technical (about whatever subject).

    I have a Land Rover blog (where I sometimes post techy info about how to carry out repairs). Most of my general readers don't want to read that. I have a dog blog. Not all my readers have/like dogs.

    I have pages on my main blog if people want to read about history, poetry, recipes, blogs I visit etc. But I think you can spread yourself too much by trying to make an all-encompassing blog. Especially with dissonant themes.

    Some blogs work well with a mix, but if the different strands compete or don't mix together, I think another blog is great. I know plenty of bloggers who have two, three four or more.

    But, go with whatever you are comfortable with. Looks like I'm in a minority here!

    Stupid me (or stupid WP) apols for the dual post.

  10. I have created a new blog on casual topic which does not have anything common to the main blog. My main focus on the main blog is to stick to the main topic, and also sometimes post extremely specific subject topics, which a very few amount or almost no people may take interest, and some normal technical stuffs. In this blog the post frequency is lower, as preparation of content takes time for me here.

    On the other one i am focusing on very general non-tech casual stuffs, which i can write casually and fast and try get my writing skills on. Let's see what's the feedback.
