More New Blogs

Good morning boys and girls.  After starting 'Coach Goes Viral' last week, I decided during the course of the weekend that it would be prudent to start a pair of new blogs while the process was fresh in my mind, with the purpose of taking some of the topics out of this blog, which had become a warehouse for anything and everything that I chose to write about.  'Coach's Parlay Card' is going to be the new home for my sports predictions, while 'Three Chips Poker' is going to be my new poker home.  For those of you with blogs that I'm already linked to at 'Coach Goes Viral' and here, I'm going to link my new blogs to yours over the weekend when I have some free time.  I'm pretty confident that four blogs will be enough to sort out my thoughts...  :)

My interview for the new position that I'm trying to get at work was pushed back to Friday after the university had a delayed opening today due to the possibility of inclement weather, so I'll know something sooner rather than later (I hope).  :)  While I "ween" myself out of the sports prediction business here, I do want to brag on picking seven cars in Sunday's 'Daytona 500' (including the winner - Joey Logano at 16 to 1).  I also picked Minnesota to beat Dallas by exactly four goals on Sunday night (among other bets), and that winner paid 10 to 1.  It occurs to me that I'm also going to need to rewrite the introduction line to this blog above (so much to do)...  :)  Hopefully I'll have most of these blogs in order by the end of the weekend.  I broke my phone case yesterday (which I mention because it forced me to dig up my information for Amazon.  While I ordered a replacement case for $3.99, I was amused that one of the retailers was selling one for about $45.00 (hmmm, decisions, decisions)...

I'm going to stop here for now (just a little restless so I thought that I'd do something constructive - so much for that).  Have a good one and I'll see you soon...


  1. Hi Coach: I have blogged now for almost nine years. It doesn't mean that I am any expert or anything, but I have seen more blogs and posts over that time than I can even remember.

    I have rarely seen people be successful when publishing more than one blog. Right off the top of my head, the following reasons come to mind:

    1) Bloggers lose motivation, have life changes, etc. There isn't sufficient time to post as often as one would like, or posting starts to seem like a real chore.

    2) People might follow one blog, but will generally not be going to a bunch of different blogs published by the same person.

    3) I am reminded of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer recreates the discarded Merv Griffin stage and starts to host his own "show." He ran out of content pretty quickly. It is difficult to post frequently and make those posts really interesting.

    Best of luck with whatever you decide.

    1. I appreciate your input Lightning. Once I started the second one last week (and the ranting is rare here at 'Bikini Hill'), I thought that it would actually simplify things to start the other two now. That at least gets the ranting, the sports predictions, and the poker to more focused blogs, while leaving fewer ingredients in the potluck here... :)
