I enjoy blogging but I think sometimes I think of a topic, decide to write on it, and then I write it on the day and sometimes this is enjoyable but other times it is stressful, as I have very little time on my posts.
I must admit I've read many informational articles online about blogging, but I don't feel I get a lot out of them. This is NOT because of the person writing and I don't mean any offence in relation to these articles because I truly acknowledge that it is ME alone, who is the problem.
Whilst soul-searching, I have finally come to realise why I get very little from these informational articles. All of these articles suggest that you have a niche for your blog, and apparently once you find this then your blog improves (apparently). I have read a lot of blogs that claim not to have a niche but the blogger seems to be comfortable with the fact they don't have a niche - but this is were I am different because I truly think I am uncomfortable with the fact I don't have a niche as I want to know what I am doing, however I have so many interests and so many things that I want to talk about that I flit from one subject to another. I think this is a problem that I really want to hone in on, and solve.
I believe in structure, but I also enjoy the freedom of writing. I have read so many fantastic parenting blogs, and 'how to' articles, and 'top five/ten/thirty' articles, and feminism, literature, and fashion blogs that are fantastic. I am also a huge fan of a blog that has not tied themselves down to a particular niche however the blogger is totally comfortable with this, has a good readership, and always has something to say - planned in advance and I really enjoy reading her posts.
I have finally come to a decision...
My Niche is lifestyle - because this topic is a vast topic and I think I can cover everything in this category. I am still going to have structure but I am going to focus on writing, current social issues, education, and family, because all of these things play a very important part in my life.
I ask you, dear readers, to refer to my first list of posts to come by clicking here for posts from the 10th-16th August, and watch this space for a new, fresh, focused side to Rambles, Rants, and Writings. :)
Just to confirm...
I am publishing the final part of my story over the weekend - so look out for this peeps!
