Modelling Question

    I have a question regarding my database model. I'm going to have different types of profiles where users can post show information... Users can have music, video, and drama profiles, amongst others.

    I had a database table set up called musicprofile. It had show1date, show1time, show1venue, show1country and so forth up to a ninth show. I got thinking since I had multiple types of profiles I should segregate all those show variables into their own table so I would only have to type them out once. Then I could have a variable called profileType, or something like that so I could tell where to put the data once I take it out... What's a good way about going about this? Is the way I mentioned here good?

    I always design poorly first, and see what I can improve... Then I end up scrapping a bunch and starting over, lol.
