Blog Question.....Your Opinion Please
I've become a blogging fool, with several now (Lu Knits, Bible KB & Lu Gardens), I love to blog about everything that makes life wonderful for me. I blog mostly about knitting but I also have lots of other stuff I do which I want to post about (links below in my sig).........I was wondering what your opinions are..........I created ONE log merging the postings from my 3 favorite blogs, it's called Lu's Views (for now).........Any and all opinions are welcome.

I'm not really sure what a "merged blog" would be. I keep a blog at a blog site called Joeuser.com and just blog about whatever nonsense crosses my mind at the time.

Mine is "merged," I guess you could say. But I'm in a unique situation. I have 17 alters, 4 of whom also have their own blogs. I have one, Hannah Grace has one, Lyn has one, Alex has one and Susan has one. We're all blogging independently though there is obviously some overlap, given that we share a single body.

If it's mostly knitting with some other stuff thrown in, one blog is cool, but if it's a lot of other stuff to the extent that knitting is less than 1/2 the stuff on there, I like it separate. For the most part, the only blogs I read are knitting blogs.

One blog with everything about you in it. It's supposed to be YOUR blog, all about you, and everything you wanna talk about. I've been blogging for 7+ years and despite my fluctuating interests, I have have always only had one blog.

Lu, I don't know how you handle keeping up with KH, knitting and all of your blogs! I like the idea of having one blog. I setup mine for the intent of it to be knitting related. However, I'm sure all the content will not be about knitting. I think you should do what is easier for you. I know for me there is only 1 me = 1 blog

Does that make any sense???

That's a question I've been thinking about recently too. I started a separate blog for the knitting and crocheting stuff because I didn't think the folks who read my personal blog are interested in those stuff. But I'm still toying with the idea of a merged blog for when I buy my own domain. I think it may be easier to maintain.

My interests are all really really disjointed, so it doesn't tend to make a lot of sense to combine them, but I do tend to include personal randomness in any and all blogs.

I tend to be more interested in *reading* blogs that are specific to something rather than all-inclusive, but I have a short attention span.

I think merged would be fine- and if you have a tagging system clearly set up so people can filter/ search for knitting separately, that can help. I like crafting blogs that have peeks into the writer's life, but I'm not necessarily interested in Everything. just my 2 cents...
