How to blog if you read various genres?
As long as I can remember I’ve read YA, NA and Adult in equal parts. It’s never bothered me, but lately I realize that in some way it influence my blogging life.
When you blog for some time, at some point you begin to analyze your audience. In my case I realized that most of my blogger friends read YA, while a big chunk of my Adult discussions happens with my GR-friends.
Here comes the Question. How to blog?
So far I’ve come across several ways to do it:
- Run only YA-blog, as most of my blogger friends read YA, and post my Adult reviews on GR.
- Run one blog, where I post all stuff.
- Two separate blogs: one for YA, another for Adult.
- Find a lovely co-blogger who loves to read NA and Adult.
I’m not comfortable with this solution. One of my resolutions when I started Something Delicate was to be more personal, more open. I don’t want to feel like I’m hiding half of my reviews.
Well that’s what I’m doing now, and I’ve noticed that my Adult reviews have less response than YA ones.
This way I can divide my content. I can make one blog aimed for YA-reading audience, and post my reviews on Adult books on another blog. But I don’t really have time to manage second blog. My life is hectic, and I’m behind on commenting and posting as it is. Also I don’t read a lot of books, definitely not enough for two blogs.
To run a blog is a lot of work, and I definitely don’t have resources to have a second one. But I guess co-blogging is easier. I don’t have such experience, so I’m not sure this would work for me.
