There’s been plenty of talk all about having a blog niche, and this post from Martha explaining why having one has benefited her is a great read.
It really got me thinking about being a ‘lifestyle blogger’, is that a niche?
In my opinion, the term ‘lifestyle’ means everything. Beauty, mental health, travel. But, that’s what I love about it . I like that I can blog about so many various things, and mix it up from time to time too. Some posts I much prefer to write than others, but at the end of the day I would never post something I was unhappy with. I love personal posts. They are what my blog really thrives off. However, I know ‘fashion’ content is a lot more out of my comfort area, but that’s not to say I want to disregard it entirely.
If I classed myself to just one topic, such as mental health, I’m afraid that the words would dry up, and I wouldn’t love blogging as much as I do now. I would feel the pressure, and it would probably make me want to blog about other things even more!
I don’t want to limit my creativity and do anything that would make me feel different about my little space on the web. Also, isn’t the beauty of blogging that you can blog about whatever you want? There are no rules.
Whilst I’m sure having a blogging niche can you give you SO many more opportunities, I’m think I will be sticking to ‘lifestyle blogger’ for now.
