    Hi guys, I've recently started a website project, with computer and internet blog as niche. I've my own blog team and we're about 5 guys. Blog has been online for about 5 months until now. It has now about 150 articles in total, first position on Google, working on SEO tactics, we're in all social networks, making videos tutorials etc, running ads for few cents/day and getting about 200-300 visitors per day.


    Problem is, in my blog team, we're all good writing articles, but me and only one of my friends write the most of articles in the blog. So me and my friend are hard working. We'll take up from Google Adsense (splitting profits) the most money than other friends because we write more articles than other friends.


    So I think at this time, is better to start a new blog made only from me and work alone and take most of earnings? I've started with my blog teams writing articles becuase I had few money to invest and so we're 5 guys who can split profits and split costs of server, domain etc... Or I could make my own blog and redirect traffic to my friends blog and viceversa? I know that working alone on a Big blog isn't simple, I'll need more time running two blogs so maybe better working with friends which helps but less money to be earned...

    I tend to be lazy as **** when I work alone, so if you're like me, stick with a team. If you know you'll be working hard on yourself, start a new blog and work on it yourself.

    Like lord1027, accountability is a big factor.

    If you know you can hold your self accountable, then go for it.

    Yep with a blog team I'm better motivated to write more articles, but we'll make rules like every man of us write X amount of articles and get X amount of $ % share from ads

    Also we want to make a script to localize every user country, and get the articles translated to user language, is this possible with wordpress?

    Some money is better then no money.That is something i often say to myself when one becomes to greedy and wants all the pot things may not be in your favor. if your making something decent stay with the team then try to gradually put yourself in a position where you are not depending on others for help

    Right this should be a good idea. But if you really want to work alone its up to you. There are different test to work alone & group work.
    I works both group & alone. Im enjoying it.

    If two of you are doing all the work, get rid of the other three.

    Carrying dead weight makes no sense - paying to carry dead weight is even worse.
