The first thing you may notice is I’ve redone my blog and you may or may not know that this will either lasts for months or days depending on how I’m feeling. Right now I like it. I’ve also changed the title of my blog. Obviously it’s always been Mary’s Average Adventures like for the domain and my email but the title was Mary’s Completely Average Adventures which is not only lengthy but the completely was just seemingly unnecessary. These are changes that I’ve been trying to make, I’m not sure why I didn’t sooner but it was one of those things where the way things were was working and I didn’t want to mess that up.
As I was changing the title I noticed the tagline and I was like ehhh I could change this, but what do I change it to? I did and I like it but it made me think about what is my blogging brand or niche? I’m not sure. When I was blogging everyday there were a lot of days when I had no idea what to write but I made a promise to myself to blog everyday, and I had to do it. I mean I don’t know why it was so hard for me to skip a day, but it was and it made me really anxious so I didn’t. Yet, I had no ideas for weeks. There was a times where I would just start to get mad because I hated what I was writing because it didn’t make sense and it wasn’t quality and I don’t think it helped that I didn’t have a focus.
Whenever I would research blog topics it was “What kind of blog are you?” was often a question that would come up and I never had an answer. My blog doesn’t fit any traditional category, at least that I can see. I essentially write what I think and for some reason people decide to read it. However, I have never really liked to put myself or limit myself by labeling who I was who I hung out with or even what I did with my time, I always thought it was important to be well rounded and I suppose that’s probably why my blog has tended to fall that way too. It was started with the full intention to be a travel blog even though my first post doesn’t even reflect that original idea. It’s turned into the adventure of life which is also kind of why I picked that title because it can really encompass everything.
I’m kind of glad that I don’t have a necessary category that I belong it. I like that I can fit in wherever I want and see a variety of different people because that’s who I end up interacting with. I mostly talk to college and university students because I think a lot of us are in the same boat and those are two things I always tag but then there are also some others that have found me and they’re really cool as well.
What’s your blogging niche?
