Generating High Quanitities of Blog Content – Start a New Blog

This is the third post in a series of tips on how to generate higher quantities of content for your blog. Check out the other posts in this series at Check out the previous posts at Set Targets, News Sites and Aggregators, Start a New Blog, Break Down Your Posts, Ecto and Recruit Writers.

Start a new blog – Many of the successful professional bloggers that I’ve observed over the past few months have highly targeted topics and themes for their blogs (for example Weblogs Inc’s stable of blogs). There are many benefits of having a niche blog both in terms of getting ranked in Google and getting quality contextual ads. However there is only so much that you can blog about each day on most topics.

I realized a few months ago that most days I could find quality material for at least 5-10 posts on my Digital Camera blog but that unless there was a trade show on that I generally had a lot more time to blog each day than it took for those posts. As a result I’ve diversified my blogs and have started another four blogs (including this one) in the past fortnight. Now rather than just posting 5-10 posts on Digicams each day I can post 5-10 posts on four subjects. I’ve just quadrupled the amount of content that I could post each day.

Of course you need to be careful that you don’t bite off more than you can chew – add a blog and see how it goes. If you find you’ve still got time to post more add more until you hit a level that doesn’t burn you out but that gets you generating an optimum quantity of content each day.

    I’ve got an idea for another blog that I’d like to start, in a fairly poor niche, as far as volume of people looking for it. Any ideas how I can optimize my blog (I intend to use wordpress), so it will at least rank #1 in that particular niche?

    Question for you, and I don’t know if you’ll see this, since I’m responding to a quite dated post.

    You indicate that for a blog to attract readers and rank well it should have a decent quantity of posts. I agree! At the same time, you also suggest that at times, it’s appropriate to start a new blog when there is a niche you want to address and you have the bandwidth to take it on.

    How do you feel about pre-writing content for it while conceptualizing and technically developing your new blog, so that it ‘springs to life’ pre-populated with, say, content of 60 posts or so? They could be either backdated or single dated. On the plus side, it doesn’t look quite so brand spanking *new* when it launches. On the minus side, I’m not sure if there are any SEO advantages, and the content won’t be particularly fresh or timely at launch date.

    Any thoughts?

  1. [...] I’ve been considering starting a few more blogs, each of which to focus on a certain interest. Lyth advised against it, reasoning that new catagories in a blog cover that need. While I appreciate his opinions, after reading Problogger’s Tips On Creating A Hight Quantity Of Content, I’ve decided to go with the multi-blog approach. It’s a good series of articles, but the particular parts that tipped the scales in this decision were Start A New Blog and One Blog, Many Catagories or Many Blogs. [...]
