Ja Kel Daily Dot Com: Jason and Kelly bringing you the best of both worlds two Blogs one domain giving you Gossip, Technology and our Personal Life perspectivesâ€™!—–‘No Limitations Just You and Your Keyboard’ When my wife and I first started blogging we signed up for the free Blogger account and our address was http://fashionbyjakel.blogspot.com which still works but recently Blogger allowed the use of your own domain address.
How is this possible by going to the DNS control panel of your domain manager you are able to setup a CNAMES (Aliases)Â record that points to the hosting of choice. So we then pointed our domain http://jakeldaily.comÂ to the Blogger free hosting and changed the settings in the Blogger control panel to point to our domain name.
Around a month after that is when I had decided to start my personal blog and I wanted to use the same domain so in order to do this I installed WordPress directly in the root directory giving me the address http://jakeldaily.com
The point to all this is we now have two blogs completely different too each other and drawing in people with interests in two entirely different subjects. Some like to read fashion/celebrity gossip and some read technical related stuff along with some added personal articles to allow people to get to know the editors of the blogs.
You can do this too if you have a Blogger account and you can also create other CNAMES (Aliases) records and install more WordPress blogs with-in your own hosting.Â The reason I have not changed my wifeâ€™s blog over is because it is already too established with in blogger and it would be like starting over on Google ratings and indexes of it if I were to switch it over to WordPress and host it.
I do not recommend running two blogs to increase traffic and stats. You are better off working hard on one but if you are in a situation were you are married and both partners just happen to want the dedicated hobby of blogging then I would recommend running both blogs on one domain and setting up a CNAMES (Aliases) record for the second because then you are working together on the stats for one domain.Â
Work smarter not harder (the moral of the story).Â
