This week's theme will take you behind the scenes of blogging. There's nothing truly earth shattering. I want to start a conversation about the whole blogging process. I'd like to talk to all of you about the whole mystery of it. Oh. It's not a mystery to you? Well, it's a mystery to me!
Since starting the blog back in September - although officially, I didn't really invest any time into it until October - I have really struggled with finding my voice and my niche. I'm a little jealous of the mommy blogs. They seem to have their niche fully laid out before them. Or the organization blogs where people find valuable information. The value in my blogging topic isn't readily apparent or measured in a tangible way.
I might possibly be amusing.
That's my niche. How tough is that? Humor is so subjective. Not everyone will find me humorous at all. I know! It's tough to imagine people wouldn't find me amusing, but it's true.
Every blogger writes! There's nothing unique there.
I'm sharing myself.
For people who want to climb into my head, good news; I've given you a ladder. Try marketing that when it comes time to look for money-making opportunities.
I provide stories.
Imagination and creativity. That's my niche, so to speak.
Many days, I feel unqualified to give writing advice. I can share my journey and talk about books in general. That appeals to me. In fact, tomorrow there will be an another author on my blog as part of a blog tour. I'm very excited about it!
Have you found your niche? Is it as vague and frustrating as mine?
