Do I setup separate blogs for my other interests (fish-keeping & motorbikes), or simply create new categories on my personal site?

@kev I love reading a blog about something I'm interested in and coming across something unrelated that I don't know much about.

I might find something I didn't know I liked, or, it could just be nice learning about something even if I'm not especially interested in it.

Worst case scenario, I just don't read it. I've never felt alienated by a variety of articles. Maybe others would though. ¯\_༼ •́ ͜ʖ •̀ ༽_/¯

@george_ yeah I hope that’s how most people would see it too.

@kev@fosstodon.org I used to have multiple blogs but merged most of them into one. It needs much less maintenance. However I still have two blogs: one in English and one in German.

@kev Separate but federated with a “rel="me"” link element

@kev
IDK. I think you should do what you want. It is your blog, not ours.

@Tayo yeah, but it’s al a bit pointless if no one reads it.

@kev
Agreed. I see a blog as one's offering to the world, a Field of Dreams, if you will. If they don't come read it, that's not necessarily on you. It's still a cathartic exercise for you.

You'll probably have something close to a 50/50 split. "You can't please everyone so you got to please yourself."

BTW, I'm more interested in seeing your videos so I can hear your Liverpudlian (I love that word) accent.

@Tayo haha trust me, you don't want to hear my accent!

I do find writing very cathartic. Music on, and just tap tap tap away. My first draft is always a shitty brain dump, but I usually form them into something half decent.

@oilyfish @kev
That's what I was thinking and I loved their accents.

@kev sometimes is difficult to maintain different sites, so I think that different categories are better than just two blogs.
Moreover, in worst case, people won't read the articles that they aren't interested.

@kev If your domain/blog was "Kev's Cycle Repair", I might suggest separate blogs, but it's not. The way you've got things setup, I'd go with categories.

@kev

Website domain is called kevq.uk . There is no tech mentioned there. It can contain posts about everything as long as it interests you. It is appreciated however that you post separate topics through separate RSS channels.

I read your posts using Feeder (my choice of RSS reader). Rarely from website.
