I am going to create an ecommerce website. In addition to the website, I want to create a blog that will chronicle my experiences getting the website/business started. The blog would be a sort of extension of the site. I won`t be blogging about the products, but instead the process of running an online business.
My question is, since the blog is not directly related to the site, should I have a unique domain name for the blog, or should it share the same domain name as the website? If my website is iLoveBaseball.com, then should be blog live at iLoveBaseball.com/blogs or should it have an entirely different address but be linked to the main website?
What are the benefits to sharing the same domain name? The website is something of an experiment. The main benefit I see to keeping them separate is that if the website doesn`t work out and I want to continue the blog then the blog wouldn`t be tied to an irrelevant website.
Thanks for your feedback.
