One Blog. or Many?
Should I have one big blog, or several smaller ones?

I have been wrestling with this for a while and would appreciate some advice.

I have a personal blog. To avoid looking like a spammer, let's call it, www.xyz.com. This is my personal blog and I have several categories listed on it.

I also have several other domains that I want to develop some day. They take the categories I already have on xyz.com and make those posts their own site with a niche focus.

So instead of this:

Personal Blog
Personal Posts
Tech Posts
Marketing Posts
Ranting Posts

I would have:
Personal Blog
Tech Blog
Marketing Blog
Ranting Blog

I have domains already registered for them and all that good stuff.

Now the question...

Since I have JUST started seriously blogging (I only have about 51 posts broken over these various categories), what should I do?

a. Continue to put everything on one blog w/ categories and when I have 50+ posts in each transfer them over to the niche domains

b. Disregard the low number of posts and transfer them to the niche domains now


Personally, I'm leaning towards option "b" because when it comes to registering these blogs for directories, etc, it's hard to do so properly.

Any thoughts?

What you truly need to figure out is do you have enough time to regularly update each blog? You just said it yourself you are just starting with only 51 posts. What I would suggest you do is keep it on one blog until you have about 200-300 posts by then you should be able to know whether or not you can keep updates on those topics. As for the free domains you can just park them.

Thank You

I understand the concept of not having enough time to maintain each blog. That's a big part of my question... is it better to have one big blog w/ a lot of varying content or a bunch of smaller blogs with very relevant content?

Maybe I'm just re-asking my original question? :-) Thanks for the input.
