So I signed up for a challenge over at Blogelina. The idea was that you were to write an “epic” post to hopefully bring new readers to your blog. Readers who actually might want to stay around and keep coming back for more.
I think realistically if you’re going to be a decent blogger you really have to find your niche. There are so many bloggers out there who write about everything under the sun. And they’re really good. Really, really good.
I’ve been posting on this blog for a couple of years now and it still feels too random. I think part of the problem is that I feel like I can start writing about something then see that topic on someone else’s blog…and it seems so much….better.
I really do have a lot of things I’m interested in writing about. I love gardening, my chickens, developing my food storage, reading my Bible and many other book genres and going to the movies just to name a few. Some of them I’m just beginning to learn about, some I feel fairly knowledgeable about, and one thing (teaching preschoolers) I actually could post quite a bit of insight and activities about because I’ve been doing it for over 30 years.
But, do I really want to blog about the work I do 5 days a week? I keep thinking about the burn out factor there.
Or maybe I need to just write about what I like to do? Could it be that simple?
That’s the dilemma.
This trying to figure out what my place is in the blogosphere is so very difficult. I would really like to know other bloggers figured out what to write about? I welcome any and all advice….
