I wrote about the importance about multiple blogs. In my last post, i left out the most important reason. Urgency grows your blog. Being hungry to grow your blog makes you grow you blog faster then the lazy blogger. Everybody wants to make a few dollars by blogging, but people don’t want to put in the effort. They are focused on the future. They want to learn how to blog first. They want to grow one blog first. Yadda yadda yadda.
If you want to make money with multiple blogs, you better set those multiple blogs up now. Don’t say i’ll do it tomorrow. Don’t say that you need to learn first. Do it now! Rolling stone gathers no moss. There must be like a hundred of these type of sayings. It’s cause it’s true. Keeping busy and not putting things off is one of the most important traits to success. If you want to make money with you blog. You better be determined or else you will fail. If you’re half assed about it, you will fail. Why? Cause there are millions of half assed blogs out there. You won’t be able to separate from the pack. You’ll just be another wordpress blog.
What i know of business is this. If you want to become a millionaire, you can either sell one thing for a million dollars, or sell a million things for a dollar. Both will yield you a million bucks. Blogging is no different. If you have a monster blog like johnchow, you’ll make you million soon enough. But if you’re thinking of doing what he does, you should quit blogging. John’s blog is a mystery. Every respectable blogger will tell you that john can’t even repeat the success of his johnchow blog. So why waste your time trying to be like him. Instead of trying to make a million with one blog, you should focus your attention on the other option.
Set up multiple blogs. Go the “sell a million things for a dollar each” route. I’m not saying that you should set up a million blogs. No one could do that. But i’m saying that you should play the numbers. Set up ten blogs that make a hundred dollars/month each. Why should you do this now? What’s the rush? Incase you haven’t noticed, blogging is done online. Internet venture are fast and you never know what new technology will bring. Milk it while it’s still hot. Blogs are hot, but one day it’ll be obsolete. So get in early and make money while theres still money to be made.
Everything i said above is true. But the most important reason why you should set up multiple blogs now is that, it will help you when you decide to work on them later. If you are holding off cause you want to learn first. I respect that. But, it’ll be better to set up your blogs with a page of content now, so you can work on them later. Having something up now, will make it easier for you to build up. For example, if i’m going to build a house on an old parking lot. I could just fence the place and start building when i have time. Or, i could set up the foundation first, and then fence it up to start building later. Which option will make it easier for me to build a house later? Of course, you can argue, that you might make design changes for the foundation. In which case, you wasted your time with the first foundation. To those of you who take this stance, i say, “Don’t be a smart ass!”
Time is important to all of us. We don’t want to do things that we feel might waste our time. But if you think about it. Setting up a new blog everyday doesn’t require a lot of time. Don’t update them. Just have them up. All it takes is a few clicks and a few paragraphs of text.
