How to Successfully organize a Blog with Multiple Topics

If you write about many different things on your blog, you may be stuck in how to properly and successfully organize those topics on your blog, so that they all flow together and complement each other.  Here are tips for successfully organizing multiple blog topics.

 

As a blogger it can be hard to narrow in on just one topic, and just one niche.  Even if your blog is very niche specific, there are always other things that you want to write about and blog about, that just might not seem to fit in with your over-arching topic and niche.

But you don’t have to create multiple blogs just because you want to write about all different kinds of things.  There is an easy and successful way to still write about multiple things – and organize it into a great to follow organizational format on your blog.

If you are just feeling frustrated right now, because you look at your blog and think that it looks all over the place, don’t be frustrated anymore. Just follow these tips to get those topics organized and flowing together.

What is your Blog’s Overarching Theme?

What is your blog’s overarching theme? This is the key to how to successfully manage a blog with multiple topics.

My blog, Make Calm Lovely, features posts and articles about many different things. I write about organization and productivity. I write about DIY projects and crafting. Those things could of course be two different blogs. I could have an organization and productivity blog, and I could also have a DIY and crafting blog.

But I don’t think I need two different blogs. Because my overarching theme for Make Calm Lovely is to help people get organized and more productive, so that they can enjoy the lovely in life – such as spending time on DIY projects and crafting, which I then show them DIY tutorials for.

So think about the overarching theme of your blog. If your blog is about camper vans for instance, you will write about a lot of different things under that theme. If your overarching theme is to produce content about camper vans and trips to take with camper vans, there is a lot you could write about under that theme.

A blog on camper vans could feature articles on how to maintain the camper van, types and models of camper vans, accessories and products for camper vans, ideas for trips to take in camper vans, decorating tips for camper vans, etc.  There is a lot that comes under that overarching theme.

Split your Blog into Categories

Make it easy to find posts on different categories that fit within your blog’s total content.

Create categories that reflect the main things that you write about on your blog. Taking the camper van blog example again, you could have categories on Camper Van Models, Camper Van Accessories & Products, Camper Van decorating ideas, Trip ideas (which could then also be split by geographic region etc).

Once you know the main categories for your blog, write a lot of content that fits into each category.

Organize your categories in your menus, and around your blog’s website.

Interlink your Topics and Categories

Good SEO for your blog involves interlinking amongst your posts and topics. Link your blog posts together in some way, to make them relatable to each other.

Again, taking the example of the camper van blog, you can link together many different posts, even if they seemingly fit into different categories and topics on your blog.

If you write a post about a certain model of camper van, you could link to another post that you did about a certain accessory for a camper van. For instance, you could put a link in that post that states something like “check out this great refrigerator that would fit perfectly into this model”. 

If you are writing a post about a trip you took in a certain camper van, you could place a link that says something like “we took this trip in our Yosemite 340 Camper van” and link through to the post you wrote on that particular model. (disclaimer: I know nothing about camper vans, and models of camper vans – I just pulled that model example out of my head!..)

Have Related Posts

Mixed in among your content of your blog posts, and at the ends of your blog posts as suggestions for further reading, link to your related posts.

A good strategy for this is to link inside the content such as:

Related: 5 great refrigerators that are highly rated for camper vans

This link would sit in between two paragraphs of your blog post. It will direct your readers to other content you have, that is related in some way.

You could also place a list at the end of your post saying something like “you may also like”. You could then list out several blog posts that they may like to read that relate to the content in that particular post in some way.
