Should You Combine Writing And Marketing In One Blog?

Published on 6/28/2014

Since I have taken a more serious approach in writing more articles, posts and books, it seems I have come to a fine line between being a writer and being a internet and affiliate marketer.  

Someone asked me a while back, why I was promoting physical products and digital products and I explained that a writer also needs to know how to use internet marketing to get their work and books out to the people who are interested in what you write, as well as create income from many different sources to support yourself while writing.  

Learning to mesh the two together has become a challenge.  For example what should my blog be about; writing only or affiliate marketing only or writing and affiliate marketing?  I am trying to combine both on my blog, while trying to keep both types of readers in mind when I make a post about writing or recommending a product that I have tried. 

I would like to find a happy medium to provide information that all of my readers would benefit from with each and every post I write.  

In doing some research on this subject, I find that I am not the only one who has come across this situation.  As usual there are many different opinions on what to do in terms of combining writing and marketing, vs. separating writing and marketing into two blogs. 

I did a search on and it looks like I'm not doing too bad so far.  My rank in the USA is 151,394, the other site is 195,050 and bounce rate for me is 40.70% vs. the other site with 53.00%.  

I purposely did not list the name of the other site, as I am not trying to compete, just trying to get an idea of how I am doing with combining writing and marketing on one blog.  I will be visiting the site a lot to get some more ideas.  Her site is very appealing to the eye, well written and full of information that I need to learn.  

I would love to hear from anyone who has run into this type of situation and what you did to make it work. 
  • Were you able to combine the two in one blog?
  • Did you decide to create two separate blogs that link together in some way?

I'm sure other readers would like to know the answers to the questions above.
