Owning a blog is fun, you can earn and learn together with it. But it gets hard when you own not just one but multiple blogs. As for me, I currently own 10 or 12 blogs I try to keep them maintained, updated but that isn’t easy. Are you planning to the same? I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you’re up to it then this will help you.
At first, I had only 3 blogs to handle. And it was fine, but my interest with blogging widened along with my craving for domains. That’s why now I keep getting new ones especially when their are promos that some famous registrars have.
Let me share to you how I keep up with blogging, no matter how many blogs I have and how many posts I need to make within the day (excluding days when I have tons of tasks!)
1. Handydandy Notebook!
Are you familiar with Blue’s clues? It’s an old children show aired at Nickelodeon years ago. Steve, the guy who owns blue always has the Handydandy Notebook so whenever they find clues, they can remember it by drawing it on the notebook. At the end of the show, Steve brings it out to look at the drawings and finally come up with what the clues make up.
Having a handydandy notebook for yourself is really a must. Whenever you have ideas or thoughts that just suddenly pop out your mind – it’s best you write them down so you won’t forget time. You’ll feel guilty the moment you open your wordpress dashboard yet you forgot what to post. And if you have lots and lots of ideas it’s the best thing I can recommend to you!
2. Make Notepad your best friend.
Because I have many blogs, I can’t remember all the passwords. Not to mention, there are also the FTP Details, cPanel accounts and Akismet keys (and all other types of keys). Young or old, if you own tons of blogs you can’t remember all of that – especially if you like to be secured (using different kinds of combinations of letters, symbols and numbers). So for me to remember, I make use of notepad. For every important password, I copy it and paste on my notepad then save. This isn’t advisable if you use a public computer though, because you must keep it in a private place. You can also make sure of your email as a storage for passwords and stuff but make sure you’re the only one who can access it! Yet if you’re young, I’m pretty sure you can handle loads of information all at once (and if you’re a super genius)
4. Have a blogging schedule
I post every other day or every 3 to 5 days. Since I can’t keep up with my personal errands, that’s what I do. But if you can, prepare a plan for your blogs. Choose one or two you will update for Monday, then choose another for the next day until the seventh. If you have more than seven blogs, then make it 3 blogs a day or two! Whatever you think is best.
5. Gather ideas, relax and unwind.
Do not push yourself! If you can’t blog, then don’t. Pushing yourself will just leave you with a gross post or a post that does not really make sense. Take a bit of break from time to time and I’m sure with that you’ll get ideas of what your next post will be about. Chill!
Now I know there a lot more, but I hope these helps! I’m not a pro but it should work and if you learn to discipline yourselves. Stop buying so much domains you don’t use! (Like, I’m telling this to myself too)
