Welcome to Bookish Blatherings, a Bad Bird Reads feature where I ramble about bookish or bloggerish things and hopefully you will join in on the discussion.
Since I have reduced my posting days from 6-7 days a week to 4-5 days a week because of my busy schedule, I’ve been wondering more about blogs with multiple bloggers. I don’t think I’m ready to share my blog quite yet, but I’m not completely against the idea of bringing someone else into the Bad Bird world at one point, maybe in a year…or five. 😀
There are some pros and cons obviously. I love the idea of having my blog being a 7 day posting blog again. On the flip side, would my blog really be MY blog anymore? I don’t like the idea of sharing something that I started from scratch and nursed all on my own. What if I wanted it back to myself one day? Is that even possible? What if I ended up disagreeing with the person I co-blogged with? Awkward! Then again, what if I became best friends with them and I found an awesome buddy to share the book blogging experience with? That sounds fun.
Then there’s the readers’ views. Sometimes I don’t like having to scroll through multiple blog posts from different bloggers to find the one blogger I actually want to follow and converse with through comments. Too many bloggers on one blog can make things a little jumbled, in my opinion. However, I love that co-blogging blogs are so diverse. Not just the same person’s opinion over and over again. Ugh, I am so back and forth on this.
I see the good and bad of co-blogging just like I see the good and bad of single blogger blogging. Obviously, nothing is ever perfect and I am so not judging because I’m all about embracing differences in opinions, blogging styles, and personalities. I just thought it would be fun to hear what you all think. How do you feel about multi-blogger blogs? Yay or nay? What makes you feel that way?
I would really love to hear from the bloggers who share a blog right now. How has your experience been so far? Do the goods outweigh the bads? What would you have done differently? Any tips for us interested in co-blogging?
What’s your opinion on Co-Blogging?
