Can I Write This Type Of Content?

When I created my blog, TECHOD, I have planned on focusing purely on technology and internet related stuff, but now I find myself wanting to write about other things like blogging and making money online etc. So I'm wondering what my options are...

Should I write that sort of stuff in a new category and keep the current domain name?
Should I buy a new domain then put 301's in place and use the change of address form in Google?
Or should I forget about writing that sort of content and just stick to the topics that are on there at the moment?

Your advice is appreciated!

I think additional categories would help with the overall traffic picture.....
Like a store with 2 products versus a store with one product....

I've been doing this since i created my blog just over 4 years ago. I have a lot of categories and i do add content in them each month. What i try to do is sometimes do some internal linking when writing blog posts.

I'll link to another category or another blog post that's related...etc

No need to buy another domain. Your blog is about technology so write about how to make money in the tech world...etc

Thanks a lot Jim, that is the ideal scenario for me, to stick with what I've got and add an additional category.

personal suggestion: suppose use sub-domain to write the content for making money.

you still need a place to write the content that you will keep of loving in your lifetime. in a day, those contents will graduately find its path of making money. because internet is about the using of the content to make money or at least create the ad value.

I don't see how the 'new' topics are off-topic for an internet-related site.

As we post, we find new ways to categorize stuff. I sometimes find myself going back and adding tags to old posts when I write a new post related to the old.

I agree with Jim and the Snake.

I have read, for what it is worth, to keep the focus on one topic until you are established. After that you can branch out. I think we all do that.

All green, sir. It's your blog, so you have the control of what's going to be in there. Well, as long as you maintain the quality of your posts. Think of it as a way to expand your reader / subscriber network. A good way to keep things together is to think of a way to relate those new post ideas to any of your old posts and do some internal linking.
