My Greatest Fear #57: Posting on the Wrong Blog

You may or may not know this, but I write two blogs: This fun, whimsical blog, which is largely about content I consume, and the Stonemaier Games blog, which is largely about crowdfunding, entrepreneurship, and content I create.

I think there may be a small overlaps between the audiences, but the disparity in size between the two blogs is huge: The Stonemaier Games blog is read by 10x more people than this blog. Those people have signed up to learn about Kickstarter, not to get the latest scoop on my cats or a random Netflix original.

I use WordPress for both blogs, so as I’m typing this, the page looks nearly identical to my Stonemaier blog. Every night when I click “Publish” on this blog, I have a moment of panic: Did I just send a post about my greatest fear of getting stuck to something frozen to nearly 900 inboxes around the world?

I’ve never done this, but if/when I do, I’ll let you know.

  1. I know your stress…
    I manage a small research company as well as an online games store. I have successfully kept the two entirely separate except for one little hiccup when I emailed a government client from the games email account. After the initial stomach drop (“I didn’t just…. Nooo!”) I *think* I was able to smooth things over! Just waiting on the client to either come back with more work, or alternatively buy a heap of games 😉

      Steve: I’m impressed that the mistake has only happened once! You must be very good at separating the two entities.

    I have the same fear around texting – especially if it is business related.

      Philip: That gives me an idea for a new blog post, as I’ve definitely done that a few times. 🙂

    I used to be on the board of directors of a small charity. Every time I sent an external e-mail on their behalf I had the same surge of panic.
