Thoughts on writing multiple blogs

I probably shouldn’t try to write multiple blogs.  Writing one takes energy, but writing three takes more than three times the energy. It leads to the neglecting of either one or two of them.

Maybe I have some form of blogging addiction.  Once I started getting my voice out there, I didn’t want to stop.  I started with a hobby blog, and then and ESL blog, and then of course I needed a blog to complain about all the annoying things we encounter every day.  There seems to a logical progression there.

I stopped the ESL blog because nobody was paying attention and the blogging platform did a bad job of referring people to it.  They highlighted the same blog posts for two years.  I guess somebody was asleep at the switch.

I started this blog that you’re reading because the general negativity of the complaining blog got tiring.  I may have a lot to complain about, but I just don’t have the passion to be “an angry man.”  Don’t get me wrong, I am angry, but most of that doesn’t need sharing.  It isn’t bursting out of me all the time.

When I discovered WP, and saw how good it was at guiding people to the blog, I brought my hobby blog here.  Unfortunately, I just haven’t written that many posts since the move and haven’t had much time for hobbies except cycling and stamp collecting.  I usually write about cycling on this blog because it so often is a perfect moment for me.

As for stamp collecting….I started a blog just for that.  However, since I am a novice and I spend a rather small amount of time on it, there isn’t much to blog about.  Besides, other’s have written and filmed so many fantastic things about stamps that there is little point in writing my own.

So now, I spend most of my time and energy on this blog to the detriment of others.  I even paid for the upgraded plan thinking that I would change my theme to a premium one, but haven’t had time for that.  It has increased the number of viewers, though.  So I consider that a good thing.

Actually, I should be doing some other work right now.  Instead, I am procrastinating by writing this blog.  Now that I realize it, I should get back to it.

    I don’t think it’s true that there is little point to filming & writing your own stuff about stamps just because others have. No one else is you!
