Right, that is the issue -- whether there's an SEO advantage per se in using one vs three blogs. My hunch is that the answer is no. So which to use depends on which users will find more useful.
In my case, I think three distinct blogs is better, mainly because the three topics are mutually exclusive (even though they are related). It would make little sense to require any user to scroll past two irrelevant posts or check an RSS feed twice unnecessarily to get to a third, relevant one.
Also, contextual ads would probably be more relevant in the case of three separate blogs, at least in theory. Right?
Finally, the names of the blogs themselves would be more specific and hence more likely to attract the right audience. Fewer bounces off the site.
