    Is it beneficial to use two profiles for different genres or topics?

    I used my full name instead of a screen name because I'm also writing for a free magazine (unpaid) and trying to get my name out there as a writer. But, there are some topics I'd like to writer about that I'd like to separate from "professional" writing, or stuff I'd want seen as a portfolio sample.  So I'm considering a second profile.

    First, is this allowed?  Second, if you have done it, can you say why you did and how it worked out for you?

    I have several different profiles, not necessarily for the same reasons as you but because I want to be able to keep my hubs in specific groups and niches. For example, on one profile I write about love and relationships, on another profile I write about my favorite travel destinations, and on a third profile I write about money and careers. Multiple profiles are OK as long as you don't use them to do too much cross promoting between your profiles.
    Great question and I'm curious to see how others will respond.

      Thanks for taking the time to answer me :-)  Well that is sort of along the lines of why I would like a second one. I want to be able to write other genres and topics and not have to think "does this fit with my usual writing?"

    I keep multiple accounts for different niches. This is the first account that I used for Hubpages (and the account from which I do most of my commenting and discussion in the forums). I also have an account for gift guides and holiday articles, one for writing about religious issues, and I'm going to be making new accounts for relationship advice and pregnancy and parenting articles as well.

    So far it seems to be working out pretty well, because I can do a lot of internal promoting that way, without feeling terribly strange about it. Example: I link most of my Valentine's Day hubs to one another in one way or another. I do not (in general) link back to this account from that account.

      Thanks, that sounds like a really good plan for what I'm wanting to do.
