If the issue is around the idea of multiple blogs, then consider
giving each of them a unique name...


...not only does this provide a usable path for the person visiting
the site, it stuffs keywords into the URL. I have not seen any
statistics, but my thought would be that a subdomain is a bit more
difficult for someone to remember if they don't have it written down.

My experience has always been that if you do right by usability, you
will do right by organic search engine rankings.
