How Many Blogs do You Blog On?

A quick reader question:

how many blogs do you actively blog on?

I’m not asking about how many inactive blogs you own – but how many do you contribute to with a post of your own at least once a week?

PS: I’ve previously asked a similar question – how many blogs do you ‘own’? which found most owned one, but 13% owned more than 10. Of course, these days writing on a blog doesn’t mean you ‘own’ it as such with many group blogs and blog networks.

    Two, both of which I blog on at least once a day, six days a week.

  2. natnit says:

    Just the one blog for me. I tried starting up a second one that actually had a developed-niche, but I got bored and gave it up.

  3. Avinash says:

    I write for two blogs that I own. I don’t think I’ll have enough time left to research about a particular topic if I write on more than two blogs. I try to post articles that are really useful.

    I do *read* thousands of blogs/week though.

  4. Everton says:

    I started a 2nd blog a few months ago that is starting to do quite well. I also have a forum for Connected Internet that is starting to get quite popular

  5. I just have 1 blog that I post to at least 3-4 times per week at the moment. Just focusing on getting some decent traffic to this 1 before moving on to building another (maybe!)

  6. I actively blog on 1 blog.

  7. Andrew says:

    Just the one. I had another but shut it down as I didn’t feel the quality was right. I didn’t care enough about it and gradually it became inactive.

    It was the only blog I had advertising on and as a commercial activity it was a success, but from an intellectual perspective it suffered from forced blogging.

  8. Razeen says:

    I want to focus & give a good contribution for my blog, so i post just for one blog.

  9. Tim says:

    I blog actively on four; two personal (one in English and one in Swedish), a Swedish one with daily rhymes called Rimnytt and a newly started English one with daily haikus, Now Haiku.

  10. Two. Every other day to daily on my artist blog. Once a week, sometimes twice on my mba blog.

  11. Susheel says:

    I’ve just started actively blogging one one blog about photography http://phototip.blogspot.com but I do post to one other blog once in a while http://whitespace.umeshgopinath.com which belongs to a pal of mine.

  12. Nine actively write now, just added another one this past week. Some are my own, and some are for writing jobs.

  13. One – updating daily.

  14. Alfa says:

    I update 6 blogs regularly.

  15. Clark says:

    At the moment, three: POW – The blog at http://www.tepidblog.blogspot.com, Single Dads at http://www.singledads.wordpress.com, and Smart Resumes at http://www.smartresumes.blogspot.com.
    By this time next week, I think I’ll be at four.
    Then I’ll be very close to my realistic limit.

  16. Three, and that’s enough for me! (I like to rhyme.)

  17. Simmons says:

    Only 1. And its not for money :D.

  18. I have 2 blogs, which I am currently transitioning to WordPress.

    In the ideal world, one will be daily (Random Rebel Coffee Blog) and the other will be weekly (Rebel Reviews).

    I have been blogging for several years, good traffic, little revenue — I feel like a newbie still, trying to figure all of this out!

  19. Steve M says:

    I post to my personal blog daily, my main opinion blog two or three times a week, and half a dozen of experimental niche blogs as and when – but at least weekly. I also contribute to a few friends blogs when I have something to share. So whats that – about 8.

  20. Patrick says:

    7.

  21. Jeff says:

    Two blogs for me!

  22. Lynnette says:

    I post to 7 “niche” content blogs regularly.

    Four of them, I try to post daily or every other day. The other 3, I post once a week.

    I started with 2 main blogs that I wrote daily for the last 3 years.
    Now, I have 7 (don’t want any more) and I officially blog for a living full-time.

  23. Deb/NJ says:

    8 blogs…I write to each of them at least 3 times a week. I added niche blogs, and was working off general blogs for awhile.

  24. Explorer says:

    I have three blogs……one is personal blog where I share thoughts and fun with friends; the 2nd is for self-learning, the 3rd one is for ebusiness and marketing stuff.

  25. Karen Porter says:

    3 blogs

  26. Mike says:

    I have 7 blogs and blog on 4 of them regularly, usually daily. One of them, cw-chronicles.com/blog, is used for posting 19th century material related to the American civil war from the current date in 1863. In 2008, I’ll be publishing material to it from 1864. I publish a public domain poem a day on a poetry blog. I also have an outdoor related blog and a personal “general purpose” blog.

    Three of the blogs also have a web site associated with them.

    The 3 blogs that I don’t use were “precursor” blogs for the ones I now have.

    I don’t “officially” blog for a living. I have time to devote to the blogs because I recently retired.

  27. A few months ago, I migrated my blog to WordPress. I really enjoy the application and see the potential for a few more blogs for other obscure topics. As of right now, I post on one blog.

  28. Jason Spence says:

    I post to 5 blogs at least once a week. However, only 1 of them averages about 1 post per day. I find that with working full time, this is slightly more than I can handle. I plan to orphan 1 of them in the near future.

  29. GP says:

    There’s 5 -10 I post to regularly (once a week or more) I have 3 blogs, the one that focuses on the innkeeping, one that focuses on travel in montana and another one in progress on the building/remodeling of the b&B prior to moving. Hmmm :)

  32. Three, more or less, and maybe four if you count Twitter. The food blog is the main focus, plus I have a personal blog for friends and a Tumblr blog just for fun.

  33. I think this is a loaded question …. contribute to with a post of your own .. some of my blogs I contribute and post articles by others or pictures. Does that make me less of a blogger? Although, it’s a loaded question because due to my offline work I haven’t been contributing much online actually .. reading more and commenting in short spurts though. Weird because the less time I have I probably could be contributing and posting more often, yet it’s like the opposite sometimes.

  34. Viviane says:

    3 professional blogs, 1 secret one.

  35. I have about 10 blogs, and post to about 5 of them weekly, 3 of them daily, and one of them 3-5 times daily.

  36. Jay Wilson says:

    I own one blog, contribute on a part time basis to another.

  37. Anne-Marie says:

    One I write at daily. One I write at three times a week. One I write at on the weekends. Three I write a at least once a week, but more like two to three. One I write at every six to eight weeks – but a block of posts at one time. Another one two to four times per month. Finally, another one I do 4-5 posts per week and a couple of very large “guide” posts per month.

    Some I “own” and others I write for on contract. It’s a bit insane, but the days go by quickly and I can do it around my children’s schedules.

  38. Helen says:

    I own one that I do a post or two a day, I share one with a friend, and then I am paid to blog at another one so I do about 2 – 3 posts a day there. Good thing I love to ramble about fashion, because sometimes i can be be making about 6 posts a day. But it usually never gets that extreme!

  39. Dave C. says:

    Not 100% sure how to answer this because I actively post on two blogs, that I own, but I also help out someone else on their blog. They write the outline for their post and I go in and clean it up considerably.

    So if that counts, then 3.

  40. Chris says:

    Hi.

    I contribute daily to 3 blogs. One about technology, One about health and the other about life.

    Though it’s tiring, I learn so much in all 3 areas of my blogs.

  41. Trevor says:

    I currently write at least one post per day on three different blogs.

    I am also planning a fourth blog , but this may only have one or two posts per week.

  42. Gary says:

    I post several times daily on one, weekly on another and sporadically on several others. I spend almost as much time coaching a few of the bloggers in our little network.

  43. Mephala says:

    1 personal, 1 tech, and 1 authored by my 5 cats. :)

  44. Jules says:

    Just 3 ;)

  45. Nox Dineen says:

    I have 1 of my own, write for 1 other (and have applied to write for another). I also ghost write post for a corporate blog.
