Combining Blogs?

I have a new photography blog that’s languishing. I asked about advice on promoting it. Our blogging friend Nathan suggested combining blogs which he does for all of his interests.

I know I don’t want to combine photography and Scripture because my objective with this blog has always been to stick to Bible and Christian related stuff. I don’t want to write about what I had for dinner and I don’t think others are interested in that either. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I just want to write about, collect links and quotes and learn about Bible related things from commenters.

But it did cause me to think about combining Suffering Christians, where I mainly share information about things related to chronic suffering and Scripture Zealot 2 which is mainly just for myself for keeping track of what I’m reading and studying.

The topic has changed from promotion to saving time, making these other things visible here and organization.

Some of the suffering stuff might be a little much for some people but then again we all need to be prepared as well as we can and need to learn how to deal with people who are suffering (although all of you who comment here are so great you seem to know that already). And I don’t want to bore people with my personal stuff about what I’m reading.

I’m not sure if it would really save time. I would either write stuff here or somewhere else. But more people may see it here. Let me know what you think.

    I’d like everything to be here. I didn’t even know about most of your other blogs. Besides, people can always subscribe to the feed of one or more categories, if they absolutely can’t stand reading some of your other material 😉

    I didn’t know people could do that. That would change things.

    I’m not sure how many know it can be done. I believe this is the pattern of the link:

    Wow, category-based feeds. That is awesome. I did some quick Googling for subscribe to blog category and it looks pretty easy. I’ve never used feedburner, but it looks pretty easy to set it up that way. I think you can make an RSS feed button/link for each category, or whatever. Cool stuff.

    I didn’t know you could that either. I personally like keeping separate blogs, but just do whatever works you. I don’t know how I missed your photoblog going to added it to my feed.

    Thanks, I need the readers.

    Nathan’s suggestion of combining the photo blog with this would work because of lot more people come here, but I would have a captive audience that may not want to see photography posts since it’s not more of a general purpose blog. If the photography blog goes down the drain I could do a photo of the week but then I’d just feel like I’m showing off.

    Speaking for myself, in a world of feed readers, it makes little difference whether your posts appear in one blog or many. I am subscribed to all, and have them all under a “Jeff” folder in my reader; when they pop up, I hardly ever notice which blog they came from. I do understand that some people might find picture posts or whatever a burden they didn’t sign up for, but I personally read everything together as one blog now, and I haven’t died of a stroke yet.

    I haven’t died of a stroke yet.

    And I’m very thankful for that.

    I’m not sure others would have it set up that way. That’s a good way of dealing with blogs. Give’s me something to think about.

    I’m going to have to try putting your blogs into a folder, didn’t know you could do that.

    Also, the reason I mentioned combining blogs, is because the ones that I find the most interesting tend to discuss a wide range of topics. Obviously not everyone will share my opinion though 8)
