More Than One Religion?

While I'm not a complete newbie to Pagan Religions, there is still a ton I need to learn, and I'm getting there... slowly. Especially lately where I have more time on my hands to read, search, etc. But I'm slightly confused on something..

I have not read too much into this but I am hoping to get some opinions from people who know this stuff better than me because I don't really know if there is a right or wrong answer.

I have seen people who are Pagan, who consider themselves as being part of more than one Pagan religion. For example, I see several people who, in their list of beliefs list things such as Druidry, Shamanism, Wiccan, Heathen. While I know these are all Pagan, I know that a lot of Pagan religions are quite different from one or another, would believing in more than one Pagan religion be contradictory to the others? Mind you, I don't yet know a lot about other Pagan religions other than the ones I'm reading up on, so whether or not they contradict one another is quite over my head. I have also seen posts on other forums regarding Druidry vs Celtic Recon and people who claimed to be into both.

Some of the Pagan religions are similar, some are different, but is it 'wrong' or contradictory to study/practice more than one?
