I have a domain

In it there is a wordpress blog at and other more static content at,, etc, etc

As the blog content is updated quite often I use a WP sitemap plugin to generate it for the blog dynamically for convenience. Is there any penalty/negatives in using this while also maintaining a separate one for the whole subdomain bar this blog at

Multiple sitemaps are perfectly fine. There's a special way to tell the search engines you have them.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sitemapindex xmlns="">

Just make sure you follow that specification and you're all set.
