Why Multiple Blogs?

The other day a friend asked me why I have multiple blogs. Okay, they didn't really but I'd like to explain why and I needed a smooth segway. I have 3 different blogs because I have split personalities like Sybil, Gollum, and Norman Bates. I can turn one off and start the other in an instant. I even proof read the pages from each blog with different voices. If that doesn't peak your curiosity than no amount of promoting will.

I really needed 3 blogs because that is how much pressure I have built up in my head with random ideas, lists, categories, etc. It reminds me of X Men when Dr. Xavier puts on Cerebro and is trying to track someone amid all the busy chatter and traffic in the universe. Categorizing and expressing my thoughts helps me lower my brain pressure pressure. I have 3 blogs out of necessity since I have 3 topics I enjoy writing about. they are 1) movies, 2) fitness, and 3) everything else (this blog)

People who like movie reviews used to get frustrated when they'd have to read about facial hair, time travel, MMA, or other random topics along with their movie posts, so I created The Movie Guy just for them. It features trivia, movie links, reviews, and traditional values, and good old fashioned movie goodness. Just reading about it right now makes me want to go there.

My fitness blog is found at Healthy Chaka. I share nutrition and health advice, exercise and wellness tips and feature valuable reference sites. It is the least popular of my three blogs and most everyone that views it can't stand the graphics or subliminal messages. Some say they just don't have the time to try and solve all hidden clues and aren't interested in the prize money.

As you know Chaka's World is a cornucopia of random trivial topics laced with subtle humor. I only wish I could bless more lives with it, but I keep getting warnings from Google that I am straining their servers with the high demand for my blog. What more can I do?

Which ever one you prefer I'd love to hear from you in the comments section. Reading a blog and not commenting is like putting money in a vending machine and walking away. It's like going to vote and not pushing the buttons to cast your vote. So just do it because it makes us happy when you leave us comments.

Thanks for explaining. I don't think I could keep up 3 blogs! Too much work. I also like comments. I am currently conducting a study on what topics people are more likely to comment on. Laundry and aging people can relate to. Counting down holidays until my husband comes home makes people squeamish...

I think it's cool that you have three blogs! I admire that you keep them up...

Hmmm, perhaps that would help calm some of the voices in my head, to give each of them their own media outlet. Something to think about.

I did not know you have three blogs! That's great! How do you keep up with them? I wish I could keep up with my one and only so far. I was about to start one about my many passions in life, but the domain name I wanted was taken and I still have not come up with a better name for it. So ALL these ideas keep racing through my mind... oh well.... I will blame it to my brain handling a twin pregnancy right now.

Geez, I only have 1, and I can barely manage to keep it up -- partly because I like reading other people's so much!

Man look at all the women who comment! Good you have a basketball loving, super hero worshipping geek to bring balance to your blog universe as a follower!

Why no blog at all? It stems from my being so lazy. I would explain further but I decided to go take a nap instead.

As long as you keep making such funny contributing comments I will count you as a co-owner of my blog.

Geez, I hate it when I put money in a vending machine and then leave without my M&M's. I guess I'll have to follow you as instructed.
