Or maybe I just don’t want to.
A lot of times you see advice in the blogosphere that you should be sticking to maybe 1-3 niches. I just made up those numbers based on what I’ve seen. For example: some people are strictly book bloggers, some are lifestyle and beauty, some may be lifestyle, beauty, and travel. You get the idea. Now, I’m not saying that the advice given is bad. That could be the advice that soars you to the top and maybe I’m just being a smidge bit stubborn. I just don’t believe that I have to stick to one certain topic or niche.
Here’s a list of the things that I discuss/post on my blog:
- Life( I’ll include monthly updates with this one)
- open discussion topics/advice
- Diary entries
book reviews(You’ve heard it here…I will no longer be doing book reviews. Maybe book recommendations from time to time.)
Does this seem like a lot? Yes, yes it does. But it’s organized in sections so anyone can click on a topic they please. These are all topics I enjoy writing about, even if some get touched on more than others. If you feel like you’re all over the place and you need some guidance or to stick to a certain niche, then give it a try! It’s not fun if you’re just getting flustered trying to cover all the bases. Think of one thing you love the most and could write posts about without getting tired of it…you just found your niche! If more than one comes to mind, then add that on as well, but stop there for now. See how it feels with those points first. The good thing about blogging is, you can change up your blog the way you want. If you decide you don’t want to blog about something anymore…then don’t. If you decide you want to start blogging about something from now on…then do that.
If you’re someone like me and like to blog about more than three topics, but you’re organized with it and it’s fun for you, then keep doing you. These are your areas. These are where you thrive. Just be consistent and love what you write!
How do you feel about sticking to a certain niche?
