Blog this?

I'm considering possibly splitting my blog into several blogs. I actually "retired" one in order to start this one, and then this became a catch-all blog that differed very little from my original one except in the look. I could keep this one as my roleplaying game blog (as I originally intended it to be) and maybe revive my older blog as a fiction and movie review blog. I also have to decide where the line between my personal blog and the stuff I talk about occasionally on Scratch Factory lies, which has also been tricky for me.

Other topics that I cover sometimes include paleontology (especially dinosaurs) and Japanese fighting video games. Another topic that I occasionally feel tempted to blog about but refrain from, is politics. Very occasionally I also think about blogging about family or personal issues, but my wife has a blog for that, and then there's my facebook page, so I think I'm set there. If I had separate blogs for these topics, I could keep my various interests separate.

Of course, the question I have to ask myself at that point is; do I have enough content to make these blogs actually work, or are some of them going to go months without updates? The focus on a narrower topic makes it easier to do more with a given blog, but I still have to have time and content to make these posts.

Anyway, I'm just thinking out loud. The somewhat schizophrenic nature of this blog and the half dozen or so interests that bounce back and forth around is a bit frustrating to me, and I'm trying to decide if I'm sufficiently frustrated enough to do something about it or not.
