Financial Planning / Foolish 401(k)s

Up until a year and half ago, my 401K was comprised of one, moderately-aggressive fund; a year and half ago, I moved it to another fund, the QQQ, which is an ETF heavily-weighted toward large-cap technology companies and is often viewed as a snapshot of how the technology sector is trading. I've made substantial gains in the time I've been in it, but after seeing it recently plummet, I'm wondering if my 401K is too aggressive (or simply not diverse enough) given that I've just bought into the Motley Fool Blast Off Service. This Blast Off will be an aggressive venture, which I will be allocating a 1/3-1/2 of my money this year. I don't want to move out of the QQQ, but I am thinking it might be a good idea to diverse into one more fund.

Any thoughts, general or specific (fund recommendation), you have would be greatly appreciated. I'm 50 years of age.

Thanks in advance,
