Maybe you're spreading yourself too thin? I have about 10 sites and there's no way I could keep up with updating them all each day. I give more time to the two sites that make up 80%+ of the traffic (& revenue). It's easier to grow a bigger site than a smaller one. IMHO I'd suggest you promote the largest of the 30 blogs first.
Either that or do what many here do, work 10 - 12+ hour days for a while :-)
The way I look at this is simple, If you have loads of sites and you want to do something to each on a daily basis the overall quality will drop. Lets say in a day you give your self 4 hours for updating blogs. If you have 2 blogs this is simple, do your research and write the articles, of you have 20 then you will not be able to spend nearly as much time per article.
What I would do is concentrate on the blogs that generate the most traffic and ensure these blogs are priority. Make sure you update these ones daily. Then with your soare time work on the rest of the blogs. You may find you only have time for one update per week with some of them.
It all comes down to quality, the reader wont see all the hours of work you put into updating your content on anything other than the site they are on. Make it worth their visit.
You are actually asking a very basic question regarding your marketing - based on the information you provide for this thread, nobody can give you serious advice on how to proceed. 30 blogs are propbably too many to equally spread your attention if you work on it as a one-man-company. You will have to get others involved or prioritise.
How should you prioritise? That depends on your niche(s), target groups, skills. Keep an eye on yourself, your readers and your competitors - and do some basic thinking befor you make decisions.

Well thats just the thing I was going to hire another person to help out and they were going to write articles for me. The issue is optimizing the posts with correct keywords and the works. In the mean time the general idea is that there is really a thresh hold.
Updating a blog too often lets me lose traffic though I have realized that as articles tend to go to archives and get lost.
There are about 4 that are the big earners, but I know the others do have great potential. If I just choose 10 to post to daily, twice for the next month and see how it goes, what do you suggest?
