About Focused Blogs

On last Friday I blogged about my new Saleforce.com blog that I recently launched. Now you might ask why didn’t I just post my comments about Salesforce.com here on Miscellanous Ramblings? The simple answer is I’ve learned over the past several years of blogging that, aside from being a vanity play, unfocused blogs really don’t benefit anyone least of all the author. And I find it rather ironic that I in hindsight chose "Miscellaneous Ramblings" as a moniker because that’s what I’ve done here; ramble on and on about miscellanous topics with no obvious direction. Well, they do say hindsight is 20-20.

Moving forward I’m going to expend the vast amout of my blogging effort on blogs that focused on specific topics. And I do plan to keep this blog online, at least for the foreseeable future. If I feel inspired to blog about a topic for which I have no other place to blog, I’ll do it here. Otherwise, you’ll be able to find my thoughts at my other blogs, and you’ll be able to find a list of my blogs here: www.mikeschinkel.com/blogs/

  1. Thanks for the comment Lance. Well unfortunately I made that the change to eliminate the full blog post content on my home page and that had the unintended consequence of doing the same for my RSS feed. Hmm.

    Frankly I’m trying to optimize certain aspects of my blog and then plan to analyse my traffic results, which I’ve previously never done, so changing back right now doesn’t really let me achieve my goal. On the other hand, because of the lack of flexibility I get from dasBlog, I’m seriously considering switching to TypePad in the near future.

    What’s more, in the future I’m going to be mostly blogging at more focused blogs, as this post explains. I won’t be using dasBlog for those new blogs either; I’ll use TypePad or Community Server, depending on which blog. I’ll be sure to announce those blogs on this blog when I launch them.
