This is a guest post from Rahil. You can read the guidelines to guest posting on our write for us page.
A very common problem with the majority of mankind has always been the ‘impatience’, patience is a virtue, and it pays off in the longer run, everybody knows that but very few are able to put this rule into practice! We find logics in other’s action and we are quick to tell others that they are trying to bite more than what they can chew, however when it comes to our own actions, we try to grab any kind of opportunity with four hands, but because we have only two hands, it mostly results in injury, in form of stress or financial loss.
The same applies to blogging and bloggers. Looking at the myriad of opportunities in the field of blogging, many go for launching more than one blog at the same time to earn as much as they can. The problem however, is that the more quantity you have the more you will have to put up with the low-quality, hence little or no rewards and lots of stress.
1). One good Blog can earn more than 2 low quality blogs combine
There are a number of get rich scheme proprietors trying to sell different products that will help you launch a plethora of blogs and promise riches in next to no time. There was some money to be made in such schemes some time ago (not as much as what they claim though). Remember if there really was a method of making thousands without doing anything, they wouldn’t be selling that method for $20 bucks? Real world examples tell us that one quality blog can create more opportunities to earn than two automated blogs combined, with both searchers and Google getting more and more severe on low quality content producing website.
2). Good Blogs require nurturing like a plant
Thanks to the toughening competition, a newly launched blog requires a lot of nourishment before it grows into anything of substance, just like a plant! You have to patiently build the readership, back links, post count, and last but not the least, the earnings. For quite some time, you will have to patiently write and update your Blog with good quality posts, while taking home little or no rewards. Unless you have some helping hands or contributors, it isn’t possible to nurture and establish more than 1 – 2 quality blogs at a time.
3). Blog Maintenance & Marketing:
In order to have a successful blog up and running, not only you need to constantly update it, you also need to go through the chores of maintenance and marketing, not to forget dealing with the menaces known as content spam or content scrapping. The short cuts and inexpensive marketing methods like article marketing or blog commenting are fast becoming more and more futile, and it is not easy to market a Blog via quality means like guest posting or social networking, even though these methods are totally worth the effort. Apart from the marketing, you’ll have to spend some time on Search Engine Optimization, keyword research, link building, taking care of the on-site factors and all that. Given that you are pursuing Blogging as a part time activity, it will be difficult to do all that for multiple blogs.
4). you can always start another one – Later
Remember that the emphasis on this post is to avoid starting multiple blogs at the same time; however you can always start more once you have established a successful blog that earns good enough and allows you to pay for some assistance.
