PostSubject: Been thinking of making a second blog   Wed Sep 19, 2012 9:54 pm

I have my currently running Hit Man blog but I think I want to make a second from a Runner's point of view. Making getting picked up by the group currently at war with me. What do you guys think? Should I focus my attention more on a single project or split to make it bigger then it already is?

Dude, do whatever you want. You don't need our permission, and we don't know how capable you'd be of doing it. You really don't need to ask us.

Whether or not you should is of absolutely no importance, since it's not like we can stop you or make you either way. If you really need help figuring out whether or not to go ahead with it, flip a coin. If you look at the result and go "okay, two out of three," it means you already know the answer.

Thanks for all the helpful advice. I was kind of asking how hard it would be to run two blogs at once instead of just one. I know I don't need permission and I wasn't asking for it.

Running two blogs is just like running one blog, except twice.

Here's the thing: only you are capable of gauging whether you can run two blogs. How you run two blogs would be completely different than how I would run two blogs. Heck, I'm not even running two blogs, I'm running eleven. But that's me.

You are a completely different person. I don't know you. Only you know you. So, you have to ask: do you want to run two blogs?

If the answer is yes, then go ahead. If the answer is no, then don't. Either way, you have your answer.

There's....really nothing specific I can add to this, all the advice given here is solid. However, there was this:

It is thoroughly refreshing to see that I am not alone in this line of thinking. I know so many people who think I'm crazy for doing this.

Like alliterator said: we can't tell you how easy or difficult running two blogs is, just due to a variety of factors. One is how much work you're putting into them. If one of them is just sort of a side project, it's not as hard. But if you're going to be working on in-depth stories on both of them at the same time, it's a bit harder.

There are people who have only run one or two blogs (like the author of Seeking Truth and the Tutorial) for a long time. There are people who have made quite a few blogs, but they worked on them one after another (like the author of Dreams in Darkness, Deja vu Dreamer, Lake Reflections, Fear of a Blank Planet, and Neverending Marathon). Then there are people who work on multiple blogs at once (like the author of the Integration Tablet, Floccinaucihilipillification, The Knight-Errant, Three Chances, and more). All three can stretch you to your limits, and what's right for you depends on how prolific you can be.

Also, as a sort of aside, I know that a lot of people in the Fear Mythos tend to be rather prolific, but I think that they also tend to make shorter blogs, whereas Slenderverse writers tend to stretch projects from about six months to a year.
