Should I Split It Or Not?

Well, there is something I've been debating about this blog and I'd like the opinion of the people out there.

I've been pondering splitting this blog in two. Instead of combining posts about my life and my thoughts on pop culture, I'd split them between two more specialized blogs. The first blog (which would be the current one) would be all about pop culture and focus exclusively on the TV, movie, and music reviews/commentary/etc. that I've been doing more and more lately. The other blog would be a brand-new, strictly personal/life blog. That's where things like my personal views, my take on the events of my life, and etc. would go. If I did this, I would have a grand total of three active blogs if you include my creative writing blog. Also, all the old posts on the current blog would remain where they are, regardless of topic. All new posts would be posted to their respective blogs.

I've thought about doing this more and more lately, mostly at the urging of my friends who think a split would benefit the potential growth of my blog(s). It seems to make sense as people interested in pop culture probably wouldn't want to hear me rant about work. Likewise, people interested in reading my thoughts on life may not care what I thought of a new movie.

So, what do you think? Is it a good idea or a bad idea? Should I keep things the way they are or make my blog(s) more specialized? Leave me a comment or e-mail me with your thoughts.

  1. Keep it the way it is... it's what makes your blog UNIQUE.

    One of my favorite bloggers, Lauren at Feministe, integrates politics AND her personal life. And it works.

    As your blog works.
