The Alice in Wonderland Complex
I've struggled with this blogging thing for years now. Every "improve your blog" article/post that I've read says to find your niche and go for it. But I don't HAVE a single niche.
I love to cook - but I don't want a cooking blog. I am a Jesus girl - but I do not want a strictly Christian blog.
I am a Mom, a homeschooler, an avid reader, a thrifter, a couponer, a life-long learner. I am very in to plus size fashion, makeup, manicures, hair and fashion trends. I love movies and music. I am very family oriented & love my family and close friends. I am out in the dating world and I am part of an interracial couple. I work from home and own a small business. I have a hard time keeping up with housework (think FlyLady). I love photography. I am living on a tiny, itty bitty budget. I love Pinterest and Facebook. I am trying to lose weight and become healthy. (Spark People)
I am all of these things, yet none of them define me. How do I work all of these things to my advantage and find bloggy friends? All of the blogs I follow (over 100) fit in to one of the categories I've made to house them:
*Weight loss blogs
*Inspiring Mom blogs
Mine could fit into every category.
It's really quite funny as this post is a PERFECT representation of my life. I have the most difficult time focusing and narrowing things down. My life is this hodge-podge of things and my life is stretched between them.
So after typing this and re-reading it, I guess I'm not all that different from most women out there. We have a lot on our plates and a whole lot of hats to wear.
I suppose what I need to do is make this blog for me - say what I feel like saying - and not worry about the rest.
So blessings to all of you out there - no matter what category you might fit in :)
