Blogs overwhelming – the end of the multiple blog experiment

After barely a few weeks of attempting to keep multiple blogs, have decided to just stick to this one…and a separate blog for Warhammer Online. That’s because I don’t really want to bore people with my online gaming journal. It does make more sense to just consolidate all my interests in a single blog rather than attempt to spread myself too thin.
I think perhaps I’ve been influenced by reading too much problogging propaganda and forgotten why I have a website in the first place. It’s nice to have readers. It’s great to have people randomly drop by and comment; I like the attention and I like the opportunities being online creates.
But my vanity and energy has its limits.
It’s nice to have an audience but blogging is supposed to free you up from giving too much a damn about your audience. The SEO experts would say no! You must make sure your content is targetted! That you maximise your visibility, make posts easily picked up by search engines and news aggregators!
I’m not giving a damn anymore.
This is my blog, after all. I’ll write what I like, when I like. And the people who liked reading what I wrote in the first place will stick around. Hopefully.
