Hello, I'm starting a new website which is diverse from all other sites I have created. I have made plenty of web-forums, however now I'm working on a site for stories (pretty much a blogging site in short).

Unlike the forums I have created before, Iím having difficulty figuring out the most productive way to create a successful site. The questions I keep asking myself are:

- What type of templates do blog readers find attractive
- Should I create 1 blogging site with multiple topics, or multiple blogging sites with single topics
- Should I promote memberships or keep to a guest orientated site

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
