What's My Niche?
Ever since I took a blogging introduction class a couple months ago with Alejandro Reyes I've been reading as much as I can on blogging. Everyone has advice to share on what makes a good blogger and/or how to be successful. One reoccurring suggestion I've come across that's stuck out for me is FIND YOUR NICHE and if I browse through my favorite blogs it's usually quite easy to tell what their niches are. Daily fashion outfits, amazing cooks or photographers, those with addictive senses of humors and then there's me. I keep asking myself, what's my niche??
People say I'm funny sometimes, but I don't think my sarcasm translates well over text. I tried the daily outfits for awhile, but I'm not thin enough nor adventurous enough. Oh! And this isn't going to turn into a weight loss blog either. Granted, their needs to be some weight loss going over here, but I'm not really interested in putting my chubby bunny stats all over the internet. So I continue to roll over the idea in my head and I'm starting to think I have settled on a few. According to what I've read you want to keep your focus somewhat narrow instead of trying to be something to something to everyone.
Here's what I've come up with. This is most definitely a lifestyle blog or "lifecasting" as Julia Allison calls it. It's online journal of sorts where I'm sharing my daily life and photo chronicling what I've been up to. Secondary I'm definitely about baking! You can definitely except lots of cupcakes, which I've been doing for roughly four years and I did not start because it was/is "in". I'll have to share that funny story one of these days! Competing for my 3rd niche would be graphic design or social media. I took several graphic design classes in college and thanks to an ex-boyfriend I have the entire Adobe Creative Suite which I LOVE. Maybe to the point of obsessive. Graphic design has definitely helped me embrace my inner nerd. My inner nerd has developed a big crush on social media and it seems I have a small knack for it. So I think I can safely answer "what's your niche" now and you know what to expect in the future!
