|| Hmmm I think I may disagree with you here Ross.
I think that many people will have multiple blogs - if you mean "a blog they contribute to"
Already I have basically three blogs, with many more very likely to come.
One my personal blog.
Two - my blog on ecademy (which often overlaps with my personal blog but not always0
Three - my profile/page here on Ryze - the guestbook etc make it somewhat of a blog, albiet one that is sparsely updated - but one that is read perhaps more often than anything I write.
In addition I participate in a number of mailing lists - to the extent that these lists are themselves archived (via Yahoo! Groups) a case could be made that they are also related to a blog of sorts (the web accessible archive of posts is not really that different from many blog formats...)
For that matter, this Tribe and its message board is a form of a "blog" as it were...
I expect that in the future my participation in all of the above will continue, along with probably many more - as well I will maintain bloglike pages for products of my company, possibly my corporate pages, and very likely similiar pages on a client by client basis - serving as a restricted (to a degree) access point where clients can view what I am doing, add their own comments, and look at a consolidated picture of the project - especially as more and more of the projects I work on become web based applications developed by virtual teams - this type of collaboration will be vital to ontime deliverary of the right set of apps.
And I do not think that I will be alone in this - I see many people having at a minimum "work" and "private" blogs - and very likely being a part of blogs as part of social or business networks.

>The average blogger will have exactly 1.05 weblogs, or something like that. For most people I cannot see having more than one weblog, rather most will have categories within their blog. Strong exceptions are collaborative weblogs or pseudonym weblogs. Creation takes committment and consolidation concentrates effort.
