Poll: How Many Blogs Do You Own?


background image

I have been running many polls lately on the blog, and I find them pretty interesting because they give us some data on relevant issues. You guys seem to like them as well, so let’s try to make them a regular column. I will release a new poll every other Monday (so twice a month). The only doubt that I have is whether or not I should follow up with a post on the following week highlighting the results. Let me know what you guys prefer.

Anyway today’s poll is about the number of blogs that each of us own. At one point in time I was running six blogs actively. This year I sold some of them, so right now I am running three blogs actively. Notice that you don’t need to write on the blog for it to be counted. As long as you own it, that is fine. Secondly, only count active blogs please (i.e. with at least a couple of posts per month).

Have your say in our poll, and feel free to leave a comment as well.

    Wow. I was a little surprised to see that so far most people own more than five. I only own four myself, but have put up far more than five for clients. In fact the last three website I have build included blogs.

    I’ve just started my blog, so haven’t had enough experience to go for more – yet. I’m still at the stage where a ‘Blogging Buddy’ would be VERY helpful.

    I am using b2evolution, and I’m finding out there are other blog platforms, some of them quite popular. However, I have what I have and am making every attempt to use it well.

    Thank you for providing such a helpful place to learn. We can always learn, and your help is appreciated!

    I currently manage 2 active blogs but also have 4 others that are inactive and I no longer update. It’s all I can do to update the 2 of them. I keep the other 4 around for historical sake and in the chance I might go back to them someday.

  • Max

    I run 2 blogs, 1 full-time, the other with periodic updates.

    I have others that are in various stages of development, but only 2 that are worth declaring as blogs at the moment.

    I have a full-time job as well, so 1 is like a second part-time job, and the other is a hobby that I work on whenever possible.

    I actually need more time to dedicate to my blogs, but what can you do.

  • Steve

    I maintain 3 blogs. It’s a lot of work to maintain any more.

  • tsitalia

    Just one up to know but I’m working on other 3

  • John Samuel

    I own 5 blogs on a single domain, but I am concentrating on only one of my blogs

  • Gabe | freebloghelp.com

    I wrote an article on a similar topic a few weeks back. I suggest most new bloggers start with one before starting other blogs. Even a single blog can consume a blogger full time while learning all the basics. Juggling multiple blogs is a recipe for disaster in the early stages.

  • ajaxus

    How about 20? 🙂

  • Harsh Agrawal

    I have 4 blogs and all 4 of them are active and 3 more are lined up.. 🙂

  • Hesham

    I have voted for more than 5 blogs, my recent blog is FamousBloggers.net and a corporation blog and Social Network for Making Money Online Tips built on the contributions of its authors.

  • Blake @ Props Blog Reviews

    I’m only running 1 blog right now, but my wife and I have been discussing starting one for her about high fashion.

    @Daniel – I would love to see the followup posts about the poll results and what you think the result mean or how the results do or don’t effect us.

  • justbloglah

    I am running only 1 blog.

  • Jacques//An1ken

    Well I recently started up my Blog Creativeoverflow.net – A Design Blog for Anything creative.

    Its been going really well and I am determined to make it work full time.

    I only have 1 blog at the moment but, I am sure it will multiple as time goes along.


  • Brian Dusablon

    More than 5. Few are very active. Ideas for 3-5 more. Where does all the time go?

  • casey
  • Chris

    Just 2 for now, but I have and idea to start a couple niche blogs at some point.

  • Dave Doolin | Website In A Weekend

    More than 5, but most are moribund and I’m decommissioning most of them with taffic redirecting back to main sites. Not worth my time to keep up with.

  • –Deb

    Four. One writing blog. One blog of knitting book reviews. One blog of weekly book discussions. One knitting/personal blog.

  • Young

    I have been blogging at two blogs, one written in English, the other written in Chinese. I dream one day that both of them will be as popular as Dailyblogtips. 🙂

  • Barb D.

    I have 2 blogs–one on a free platform, the other one is paid-hosted. Funny, but the free one is the one that gets traffic…guess it has to do with the content topic being more popular on that one, plus I have 2 great incoming links. Links really do help a lot!

  • BloggerDaily

    I run different blogs fro different niches and reasons =)

  • Ali Hale

    Only one active, but I’ve got two dormant ones (actually, four if you count a personal one and one which I started and never got off the ground…)

  • Tom – StandOutBlogger.com

    I voted for 3 because that is all I could think of. I am pretty sure I only have 3 left. I sold a few recently.

  • Ching Ya

    For now, only 1. I had to quit another because of some scheduling issues. However, I’m planning to be slightly productive next year, a chance to try something new on a site. Will see. ^^

    I only have one blog right now, but I have several other domains. Not sure what the future will bring. Right now I have an outside job five days/week, so I don’t have the time to devote on more than one.

  • Available Domains Blog

    4 blogs full time and willing to test few more part time.

  • Dana@Online Knowledge

    I have 4 blog but only 2 active, so i vote for 2. 🙂

  • Mr. I

    Right now, I have only one blog. I have always believed that being focused is the best way to run a blog and I concentrate fully on it.

    Another reason for only one blog is that I do not get too much free time.

    In my opinion, starting with just one blog and later expanding is a great strategy as new blogs benefit a lot from established blog. A great example was Darren’s Twitip. He already had 2 well established blogs when he started it and it got a lot of benefit from this.

  • Roseli A. Bakar

    I’m running more than 5 blogs 🙂
