It is a very nice idea to run multiple blogs on various niches you can work on instead of messing up everything at the same place. At the same time its a pain to install WordPress for every blog, maintaining the various blogs, plugins, upgrades etc. There are few options for you to ease the process of managing multiple blogs with single installation.
1. WordPress MU
WordPress MU can be used along with a Domain Mapping Plugin with a workaround as illustrated here. WordPress MU offers the same features as WordPress, but this facilitates you to build unlimited number of blogs and users. The most popular WordPress.com blogging platform with hundreds of thousands of blogs work on the same WordPress multi user version of WP.
2. WP – Hive: WordPress Plugin
This is for those who run all the blogs alone. Like you are the only administrator of your entire blog network. WP-Hive is a WordPress plugin which enables you to run multiple blogs across multiple domains and subdomains (and NOT subdirectories as of now) with single installation core files, plugins and themes. This is a benefit as by upgrading your blog only once will move you out of all securty threats for the installed versions, but at the same time another problem may arise if the plugin loses its compatibility with new version of WP.
