7 Reasons to Start a Second Blog (And Why Successful Bloggers Do)

A guest post by Bamboo Forest of Tick Tock Timer

I now write for two blogs: Tick Tock Timer and Pun Intended.

Soon after starting a second blog, I quickly realized the many benefits it offers.

1. You have instant readership. If you’re like me, you’ve been blogging for a while. Hopefully you’ve gained at least some loyal readers. Once you start a new blog and announce it on your current blog, you’re almost guaranteed some of your readers will hop on board and subscribe. While probably only a small percentage will, it’s still nice knowing your new blog won’t be starting from scratch inundated by crickets.

2. Your writing improves. Having a blog is one of the best things you can do to improve your writing. But when you start a second blog, your writing improves dramatically. You’re forced to focus on a different subject to a different audience. This practice takes you out of your comfort zone and teaches you to convey information in new ways. The result is you become a more skillful, well-rounded writer.

3. You gain marketing skills. With my first blog, my twitter account is me being my typical insane self. But when I started my second blog, which is exclusively on the subject of personal-development—I learned to use my new twitter account in saner ways.

Initially I started tweeting one inspirational quote a day. I soon realized, though, that the influential ‘wise men’ of twitter only do quotes of others occasionally. Instead, they focus on their own insights and share them with the world. I realized that this strategy has much greater potential because anyone can browse great quotes of others. But, if you want the perspective of the person behind the twitter account, following them becomes necessary.

Another opportunity that becomes available is you can now guest post on other blogs that share your new niche. By doing so you’ll make new relationships with different bloggers that you otherwise wouldn’t have.

The above are only two of many new marketing skills you’ll gain by starting a second blog.

4. You tap into new demographics. My first blog is basically 90% humor and 10% inspiration. My second blog, however, is entirely personal-development. Many people who subscribe to my first blog won’t subscribe to my second and vice versa.

This has many advantages. If you start a second blog and it becomes successful, you now have the opportunity to market new products and services to a new audience. Same with ad revenue: a different niche with a different audience means new potential advertisers. Having two successful blogs can be much more profitable than just one. Two streams of income are always superior to one.

5. Your knowledge grows. With a new blog, you now have to increase your knowledge on the new topic you’ll be blogging on. I’ve begun reading books and closely following blogs that are in the same niche as my new blog. While you may have some foreknowledge of the subject prior to starting your second blog–it’s still imperative to stay up to date and expand your grasp of the subject if shining in the blogosphere’s important to you. Starting a second blog is highly conducive to becoming very knowledgeable, very quickly in your topic of choice.

6. You discover you can consistently write good posts on another subject. While I sometimes write personal-development articles on my first blog, it was never my focus. Once it became my focus with my new blog, my capacity to write on this subject significantly increased.

In the beginning, my goal was to write just one article a week. Later, I decided one to two is better. In a strange way, it’s hard to discover how good you can write on a certain subject until you put yourself in a position where you have to write on that subject regularly.

Another wonderful benefit is that I developed varied ways to write on the same subject. On my old blog, I often write personal-development articles in a somewhat playful and humorous way. With my new blog, I’m a little less humorous in my delivery, which I think is better for my audience there. And since my new blog is part of an online timer site, I emphasize the importance of the present moment in virtually every post I write.

7. Successful bloggers often start a second blog.

Since quite a few successful bloggers have started a second blog, there must be something to it. Instead of telling you why I think some have, I’ve decided to ask two of them myself.

Their responses:

Daniel Scocco of Daily Blog Tips: “In my opinion starting a second blog can be a smart decision, but you must do it at the right time. That is, you should wait until your first blog is established, else you would be spreading yourself too thin. Daily Blog Tips was actually the third blog I started, and I decided to create it because I knew I had a lot of unique content to contribute in this niche (e.g., the tips and tricks I was learning promoting and monetizing my other two blogs).”

Mark McGuinness of Lateral Action: “I’ve started two new blogs since my original blog, Wishful Thinking (www.wishfulthinking.co.uk). The first time was when I realised that my audience, who signed up for articles about creativity, weren’t interested in my occasional pieces about poetry, so I started a separate poetry blog (www.markmcguinness.com). Lesson: stay on topic or risk your readers’ wrath!

The second time was when I started Lateral Action (www.lateralaction.com) with Brian Clark and Tony Clark. The topic of creativity + productivity was fairly close to Wishful Thinking, but we had a very clear vision of what we wanted to achieve with the new site, so we took time to plan it out carefully. My first blog was an experiment, with some things working really well and plenty of others vanishing without trace. So Lateral Action was a great opportunity to start over again from scratch, using everything I’d learned from my first two years of blogging. Plus the creative input of two great partners!”

Word of Caution

Starting a second blog is awesome. I absolutely love it. But I only recommend it if you can give both blogs proper attention. If you only have enough time to attend to one, starting a second is a mistake.

Also, make sure you’re passionate about the subject your second blog will cover. Otherwise you’ll burn out or end up with a mediocre blog.

If you have the time and passion, starting a second blog has great benefits, not the least of which is making you a better writer and creating new opportunities to make money.

It just might be the ticket for you.

Will you take a look at Bamboo Forest’s online timer? He thinks it will help you be insanely productive and that’s probably something you want, right? He also writes for Pun Intended, a blog that will make you laugh like a hyena.

    I started things a little backwards and had 2 blogs going while I was still learning how to do this. While I had readership on both blogs you are so right on that each needs 100% attention and I was pulling out my hair trying to ‘raise’ both. One has temporarily been put on hold for the time being.

    My blog is continually evolving and I am having as much fun creating it as others say they are reading it. To me, that is considered success!

      Enjoying writing and maintaining your blog is certainly success.

    • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 8:58 am #

      I totally agree that finding enjoyment in what you do = success. I’ve had great jobs that I detested and no matter how nice the title or pay, I sure didn’t feel successful.

    This was a really interesting read. I don’t have any blogs at the moment but I’m looking to start one up. Its interesting what you say about having two blogs improving a persons writing technique, I hadn’t thought about it like that before!

      I find that it demands you vary your writing which results in making one a better writer. Having two blogs gives me a platform to express myself in two different ways on a regular basis.

      • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 9:00 am #

        I can see the creative value here. Until I read your article, I always looked at another blog through a lens of ‘more work.’ But, yes, having that additional creative outlet could be a real plus!

        • Bamboo Forest - Tick Tock Timer August 26, 2010 at 9:58 am #

          Guest posting for other blogs can also be a viable way to give yourself an opportunity to write on different subjects and in different ways.

          • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 10:49 am #

            Good point about the guest posting, Bamboo. I enjoy guest posting on writing and personal development blogs but could likely expand my horizons more than that.

  3. Harriet August 26, 2010 at 6:34 am #

    This has been a really interesting read. I’m looking to start up a blog and I hadn’t thought about maybe one day having two blogs. I can see what you mean by having two blogs improving your writing style though, I guess it would having to write in two different styles!

    Hi Bamboo,
    I can follow the logic here. I started blogging to support my book. Now that I am finishing up on my next book I can see where all the blogging has helped hone and fine tune my ideas and philosophy. It is the same idea… my writing has evolved and my voice has become more specific to the audience. It was one of the great unintended benefits of starting the blog.

      The great copywriter Joseph Sugarman even mentions how blogging can improve one’s writing. And for me, I wouldn’t be doing any writing if I didn’t have a platform on the net.

    • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 9:02 am #

      My writing has improved through blogging too. I write both fiction and non-fiction, and I find elements of offline work coming into my blog and vice versa.

    What a great angle on some old blogging notes, sorry I mean VIRGIN blogger notes.
    Never really looked at starting a second blog with this in mind, makes it look like a breeze – why don’t you have two yet Jean? Don’t know what you’d call it, maybe ‘the one we dont talk about blogger notes’ although it doesnt quite have the same ring to it.

    Sorry to steal your comment thread Bamboo Forest (look – a Panda bear!) there that should distract him momentarily. Now Jean – your rant on my blog was one of the greatest rants in the history of the blogosphere, and not only did it make coke come out of my nose, it also made me enjoy my day immensely -so thank you!

    Sorry Bamboo, awesome post, honestly love how inventive and creative you are with your writing :)

    I think I’d have to give up sleep and get some diapers if I started another blog. LOL Leo says don’t until your first one is a complete success. Until then I’ll stick with the one.

    But hey in the future when I can hire out some work I’ll do just that. I do like no.3 and the advice about twitter. No more quotes for me.

    • Bamboo Forest - Tick Tock Timer August 26, 2010 at 9:54 am #

      I can totally understand Leo’s point. The primary reason I started a second blog is because I believed my new website would benefit greatly from it. So in a sense, I had no choice. But, by doing so, I also learned the many benefits it offers.

    • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 10:54 am #

      I really appreciated Bamboo’s ‘word of caution’ section. Having a second blog definitely isn’t a one-size-fits-all sort of thing. I can really see the value when a person has the time and passion though.

  7. Samuel August 26, 2010 at 9:25 am #

    I have two main subjects for my blog. Should i make two different blogs or it’s ok to have just one?
    Thanks Jean!

    • Bamboo Forest - Tick Tock Timer August 26, 2010 at 9:56 am #

      My opinion is it might be preferable to stick with only one blog if the subjects are complimentary. You’ll notice some big blogs these days are not ultra focused with subjects they cover.

    • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 11:01 am #

      Hi Samuel. I agree with Bamboo that sticking with one subject might work best. If you look at Zen Habits, he talks about running, simplicity, dietary issues, etc., but there’s a common thread of simple, relaxed living that ties all the random subjects together.

      Ultimately, though it depends on your topics and goals. For example, do you want to sell products tightly tied in to your topic? Then you might truly need a separate blog for branding, keywords, etc.

  8. Karen August 26, 2010 at 10:00 am #

    You’ve made some excellent points for writing two blogs, but there are only so many hours in a day and not everyone has the time luxury to write consistent, original articles for two blogs every day. Some people have day jobs and can only devote so many hours to writing. But, if you have the time, why not try it out for a while? I think you do get a lot of benefits if you have the commitment and energy to do so, but there’s something to be said for not dividing your energy and time between multiple sites. Especially, if your main site suffers as a result.

    • Bamboo Forest - Tick Tock Timer August 26, 2010 at 10:06 am #

      Yeah. I actually think having two blogs is probably not a good idea for most people. This is especially true if significant frequency is important to you.

      My main point of this post was underscoring the benefits of doing so. Not that you necessarily should. But it is something to think about, which is why I wrote on it.

    • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 11:04 am #

      I think it depends on the types of blogs too. If one of the blogs is more of a ‘niche site’ vs. a standard blog, that shaves off tons of time. Also, if a person has a blog that eventually goes to having primarily guest posts, that would free up time too. But you’re right, there’s no ‘should’ here – it’s just an option that has some strong benefits tied in with it.

    Awesome post man. Spot on. You’ve made some great points. I really like the #3 and #4.

    I’ve recently started my second blog and i think it’s really good idea. Thanks for the awesome post man.

    Keep up the good work.

    @Jean, You’re doing awesome work…!!

      Thank you, Dev.

      I think one of the reason Jean probably gets so many guest posts is the community she has built here. Look at all the comments she gets every post! Speaking for myself, that really motivates me to submit to a blog, because it tells me people are paying attention.

      • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 11:23 am #

        Bamboo, before the day gets away from me here, I want to thank you for writing and sharing this fabulous post. You’ve given us excellent insight on a topic that hasn’t been explored on the blog before. I’ve actually gone from thinking ‘no way!’ about having a second blog to thinking, ‘hmmm, maybe . . . ‘

        I truly appreciate your contribution to the body of work here, and look forward to working with you again in the months and years ahead!

        • Bamboo Forest - Tick Tock Timer August 26, 2010 at 2:20 pm #

          My pleasure. I really appreciate the opportunity to do a guest post for your blog and the vibrant community of readers you’ve built here.

          Yes, definitely would like to work with you again.

    • Jean Sarauer August 26, 2010 at 11:10 am #

      Dev, if you want to share the link to your other blog, feel free to do so and/or write up a tweet and I’ll put it out there for you.

      I am blessed with guest posters and believe me, I’m grateful for their contribution. I think, like Bamboo said, it’s the community that draws them in.

      Plus, even though I don’t advertise this much yet, I’m going to promote the guest posters posts on the ‘start here’ page, on the sidebar (will be adding an area for that) and plan to bundle them in the future for subscription incentive giveaways. When I do that, I’ll contact the guest posters and ask if they’ve got updated bios/products/etc. they’d like included.

      Basically, I want to reward people who guest post here. Their posts are here for the life of the blog, and I’m not going to let them mold in the archives :)

    Hi Bamboo,

    It seems, by the points you mention, starting a second blog should be part of the plan in the long run for any blogger, but also is important to consider your words about making sure the blogger already reached a good level with the first one and have the time to apply consistently to the second, so to avoid disappointments and dead ends.

    Great advice, thank you :)

    Jean, another great guest!

    I’ve been thinking of starting a second blog. One for aspiring performers (actors, dancers, performing artists)It’s a world I know quite well and I know their mindset. Although it’s now my hobby not my life, I feel I have something to offer them. My beloved has been pushing me to do start it since I started the one I have now. My giant hesitation comes from knowing how freaking slow I write. The editing and shaping take me a mild eternity. – and I have some goals for my current blog, like having a free ebook, newsletter – growing subscribers etc…

      Your idea for a 2nd blog sounds like it would be a natural in terms of building community. Depending on the route you took, perhaps you could have them contribute some of their ‘stories and struggles, to ease the writing burden a bit. And, maybe because you have such a natural passion for this, the writing may flow more easily too. Have I convinced you yet??? :)

  15. Katie August 26, 2010 at 2:01 pm #

    I can’t imagine starting another blog since I can barely keep up with the demands of this one, although I suppose that has a lot to do with the commitments I’ve made that are indirectly related to my blog (editing and forums). Hmmm, maybe it’s like I am working on more than one blog already. Regardless, if I ever reconsider, I’ll refer back to this wonderfully rich guide of advice. It makes me dizzy thinking of possible domain names. Is there such a thing as being too inspired? Thanks Jean and Bamboo! You’re on a guest post roll Jean.

    I really like the idea of expanding one’s influence in the blogging world and becoming a leader in more than one area.

    My definition of leadership is “Broadening and/or deepening one’s influence to cause change.”

    If you make one site a runaway success, you are broadening and deepening your influence in that niche to make it a success.

    If you make a second site, you are broadening and deepening your influence to include more people.

    = potential for more profit.

    Hopefully my strategies are well laid out so I will have plenty of quality contributors for both. One is going to be a community based blog, just for the lady bloggers out there and the other is going to be a blog design site with it’s own blog attached.

    I think that starting a second blog is excellent advice. I actually run a whole bunch of blogs. I use each one for a different purpose when I want to talk about a specific topic. They are separated by niche.

    For those people out there who are trying to build niche blogs to monetize, I think that having more than one blog is the smartest thing you can do. You can use your primary (flagship) blog for establishing relationships and building a network. Then use the other blogs to make your money.

    This post has me thinking … I’m relatively new to blogging – I started my blog with a particular purpose in mind, however, I’ve been having a ‘creative spurt’ of ideas which is widening the scope of what I want to write about so my question is: Do I start another blog or change the name of my current blog? It isn’t as though I have a huge amount of traffic or followers so would a name change impact my blog in a negative way? The URL would remain the same. If there are any insights anyone would care to share I certainly would appreciate it … and apologize in advance if it was in poor taste for me to ask a question in this manner.

    • Jean Sarauer August 27, 2010 at 9:58 am #

      Asking questions is a good thing, Peppy. If your blog is newish and you don’t have much traffic, then a name change really isn’t going to hurt anything. My question would be about the URL – will your existing URL tie in with this new direction? If not, it may be best to start a new blog entirely.

    I had to read this out of curiosity even though the idea seems so over the top to me as a new blogger. I’m so glad I read it though – because I learned so much. For example, how we altered your Twitter style.

    I’m glad you have the energy to start a second blog and I wish you great success.

      It does almost seem unbelievable to start another blog doesn’t it, Sandra? Yet there are several folks who started blogging when I did who have done it well.

    I have plans to start a second blog one of these days. My problem is nailing down just what I’d like to talk about most, because my interests are so wide and varied. lol If I gave them free rein, I’d likely have 20 blogs instead, which would totally be no good. :) Ps.. Pun Intended rocks!

    I have always wondered how and why people have more than one blogs and your answers have definitely clarified that for me. I think what was very compelling was what you explained about a 2nd blog improving your writing. It makes perfect sense … I guess I should get to it and work on some good ideas for a 2nd blog :) Interesting post. Thanks for sharing.
