I am running 12 websites in different niches at the moment, 3 of them are some sort of autoblogs (update the content by it self) so I don't have to worry about any of them, the rest are simply normal blogs, and what I do, I almost outsource everything , only one website that I run 100% by my self.
With getting success on my first ever decent website last 2009, this 2010 I'm looking to get minimum 10 websites up running and getting me some passive income. Link building will be done by me via blog commenting and directory submissions. The content however is outsourced as this is the part which is really giving me pains.
I don't foresee any problems (hopefully!) provided I focus on linkbuilding a site one at a time. I'll let everyone here know how it goes for me. Hopefully it will be a good one.
That's why I think 3-5 sites is doable. It's not that the webmaster can't have more than 3-5 sites and maintain them.
Just waiting on the PR update to see what that might be
In essence, its definitely a lot more easier to promote fewer sites and have a large impact in the end.
Thanks for the feedback bogart and 5starpix. I might hate myself someday for not taking your advice but I see this as an experiment where I want to get my hands dirty.
To develop links for 1 website via blog commenting and another site via directory submissions. Yeah I'm going to try that.
