Create Your Own Blog Network 0
Having a blog network where one can expect support and sharing from other blogs offers numerous advantages for a member blog. A blog owner can choose to join an existing blog network or create a new one. This can easily be done by forming a network of different blogs owned by one person or by different blogs owned by different persons preferably of the same niche.
When a blogger wishes to set up a network composed of his own blogs, it is important for the blogs to be relevant to each other although they need not be exactly the same . This simply means providing a sound basis for linking them and not only for the mere reason that they are owned by one person. A good example of this is a blog network composed of a child care blog, child health blog, and child activity blog. Although distinct from each other, it is still very easy to connect them because of a common factor which is the topic of child.
When forming a blog network that includes blogs of other people, membership should be limited to the same niche. Attention should also be given to getting member blogs that maintain quality in content. There must also be a firm commitment from all member blogs to maintain a level of activity that is beneficial to all such as linking to each other’s site in different capacities once a week. Those who remain inactive for sometime should be removed from the network since they do not serve any purpose to the group.
More is not exactly better than less. A network with 20 members with 50% active participation suffers in comparison to a 15-member network with 100% participation. It should also be run professionally if it intends to achieve credibility among peers and the online environment.
