NBI- Lesson Learned
So you want to start a blog? You love a game, and you want to write about it all the time, do you? That’s now, what about a year from now, two years from now, or 5 years from now.
When I first started out blogging and created my first blog Way of the Chosen, which was a Warhammer Online blog. I reached out to an old time blogger, Tobold.
This is what he said to me.
I hope you’re considering that blog more like an exercise. The problem
with highly specialized blogs like that is that you won’t be able to
keep it up for 5 years, because it’s unlikely you’re still playing a
Chosen in 5 years. You’re probably even playing a completely different
game. You can make a new blog for every new class and game you play,
but then you are losing all your Google page rank and regular readers
every time you switch.
So I kept on going as is, and years later he proved right when the game started to die, I had to create a new blog, and almost start from scratch. I learned my lesson the hard way, and heed Tobold’s advice, and don’t specialize to much if you are in this for the long haul.
