How to Create Two Blogs on Your Site?

For a very long time, I thought there is no way I could create two proper BLOGs on my wordpress site.

What I wanted was simple (at least I thought so):

  1. Blogs related with parenting and relationships appearing as one category.
  2. Blogs related with Platform Building (such as this one) as a separate category.

At best, I could create Menu’s leading to pages (instead of posts). But Pages are Pages are Pages! They are not anywhere close to blog-posts. There is a lot of wasted effort in turning them into something that looks close to blogs.

Steve Jobs once said: [bctt tweet=”If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”]

Being a hardcore fan, I didn’t settle easily and kept looking. Simply put, here are the steps to create (or give an illusion of) two or more blogs on the same site:

  • Create two (or more) categories: Go to Posts -> Categories and create two (or more) categories corresponding to the Blogs you would want to create. In my case, I created BLOGS and PLATFORM BUILDING as two categories.
  • Add newly created categories into the Menu: Go to Appearance -> Menus and click on the arrow to show the Categories. Select the newly created Categories by checking the box against it. Press the “Add to Menu” button to move these new categories into the Menu. (In case you want to change the text on the site for the categories, you can change the categories details on the Menu widget.)
  • Select the category for each blog-post: Open the Posts page, Edit (or Quick Edit) has the select the category. In my case, I selected BLOGS for my parenting and relationships related posts and PLATFORM BUILDING for posts such as this one.

That’s it! You’re all set. Open your site and you’d see two (or more) menu items – “Blogs” & “Platform Building” in my case.
