Blogging success: When you should start your second blog?

blogging successYou should never give up and must achieve your blogging success. How many times you heard this advice. It is good but we should not forget factual position to ensure our blogging success sooner or later.

Do you know how many bloggers fail? Almost 97 percent! But not all of them quit blogging. Most of them start another blog. They actually learn from their first failed attempt to start a blog and earn money. So they apply their knowledge for starting another blog. The even manage several blogs till they succeed in one or a few of them.

How many blogs should you try till your blogging success?

Most of them succeed in their second attempt. But most of them don’t quit their first failed blog and continue it. They feel a bonding with it. Obviously most people hardly forget their first love. That is why they continue it. It is fine not to forget your base. But is it possible you manage one failed blog and another new with the same passion. Or is it possible while managing a failed blog you start another one and make it successful.

How long you should make every effort to lift your first blog?

If you find any big problem in your first blog it is good to quit it whenever you get to know of it. Usually the big reason to quit a blog is:

  • Selection of a wrong niche
  • Extraordinary tough competition in niche
  • No demand of niche in future

In any of the above case you can seriously think to quit your blog. Otherwise you must put your every effort to make it successful. Usually three years are required to make a blog completely successful. So you must review the performance of your blog at least after one year to quit it or continue it.

Every wrong act on your blog can be corrected other than the above points. Even if your niche is wrong you can slowly change it if your new niche is directly or indirectly related with the old one. Many people do believe in having one struggling blog than the several blogs.

When you should start your second blog?

There are two situations when you start another blog to achieve blogging success.

  • Either you completely fail in first blog
  • Or you hugely succeed and want to earn more with another blog

In first situation be clear should you continue the old one or quit it. It is good to have deep involvement with your first venture. But it should not spoil your future projects. Else you will have several failed projects with your hard but spoiled labor. If you are neither making money nor getting famous with first blog:

  • Simply quit it
  • Or manage it weekly or fortnightly just to continue it.

In case you get huge success in your first blog it is good to start another and expand your blogging business. But before starting your second blog thoroughly examine:

  • Do you have resources of time and money for investment to start the second blog
  • Will your second blog not affect the success of your first blog in any way

If answer of these two questions is satisfactory go for the second blog. Otherwise make the first one as much successful as possible to avoid any chance of its retreat.

    I’ve been blogging for almost 5 years.

    I first started my personal blog. I still maintain that blog until now. However, since it’s my personal blog, I do not want to put junk stuff in there (like making money online stuff).

    Next, I started niche blog. However, I was to greedy. Instead of just one, I launched about 4 different blogs and I didn’t have enough time. Eventually, I shut down them all. Lesson learned.

    Now, I’m more focus with WPSpeak.com and since it’s getting more stable, I’ve decided to launch my second niche blog anytime soon.

    Conclusion:

    Start with a blog. If you first started a niche blog (instead of a personal blog like me), then do not ever think about launching another blog until your blog becomes stable (in terms of income, traffic, everything in between)

      Hey Rudd: I am so happy to see here a veteran blogger and so motivated to read your inspirational blogging struggle.
      You are right one should stay focused and make successful first blog and never think to start the next one till the first one is fully succeed. I would add one more option here “one should not start the next blog till the fist one is fully succeeded or FAILED. What I mean to say is one should understand what is the ripe time to start the second or next blog.
      Once again thanks a lot for stopping by and making your valuable comments here. Hope to see you around.

      @YourFriend: Two. I have been managing a green blog for the last two years. After reaching the conclusion that it is not so easy to sell big on a green blog then I started this one. But my green blog is still on and I am making a little money with it.

    Hi Mimuba,
    What I was taught was make a success of your first endeavor before you get distracted and move on to another project. It’s very easy to get distracted by the “Shiny New Object”.
    Using some common sense before you dive into something else is important.
    Like you said, if you pick a niche that is very competitive or one that doesn’t have enough traffic, you’re immediately in trouble.
    With a too competitive niche, you have to distinguish yourself and stand out in the crowd. It’s not impossible to do, but, it’s difficult and will take longer to become popular.
    I believe your conclusion in this post says it all! Good job. :)

      Hey Geri Richmond: Good to see you here.There are two main reasons of starting a second blog; either first one is successful or there is no chance of its success. Both reasons are equally important but yes on positive side we must try to put our every effort to make the first one successful then go for the second. If we fail no problem our first blog is not end of the world and we can start the second one.
      Exactly; tough competition itself is a comfortable position for those who know how to win. But in blogging world competition has already reached to its saturation point that is why text contents are being replaced by videos and infographics. After sometime we might be welcoming another great option of blogging just like we did a few years ago with regard to website.
      Once again thanks a lot for stopping by and sharing your great views here. Hope to see you again.

    we should work on our first blog and take it to the path of success and then we have to work on other project. If we work on more than one project at the same time we would be distracted and things can be ruined. Nice post Mimuba
