I’ve been thinking a lot lately about blogging, and moving forward with it in some new sort of direction – or rather, any direction.
That’s not to say I won’t continue lifeblogging, because that’s what I know (and love), but I’m feeling like I need a focus. I could be a “mommy” blogger, but it’s not the entirety of my life. I could blog about declutter and organisation, but I kind of already do that, plus I’m not even close to the standard of other organisational bloggers (and my house is further from any standard). I could blog about geekery/nerdery, but I’m not more qualified to speak of those sorts of things than other people.
Basically what I’m saying is:
I need to find my niche.
I have random ideas but I don’t know where to start. I am always on the lookout for the next big thing, but it is making itself rather illusive. For the time being, I’ll continue what I’m doing – lifeblogging – and hope that that something big and special makes itself known. All I know is I want to blog more. MOAR!
It’s hard because my life at the moment doesn’t consist of much. I get up at about 6am with Lily, we say goodbye to Michael for work at 8am, then it’s just kind of “winging it” till he gets home at 5pm. I have dinner, get the kids to bed, do an hour or so worth of work every night, and then go to bed. My life has turned into a routine – and I hate routine. I need something different to make more blog- (and read-)worthy posts. My life is great, don’t get me wrong, and I wouldn’t switch it for the world. But I tend to think that I could be blogging about something more than just my life, if you know what I mean? There has to be something I can contribute to the blogging world that hasn’t been seen a thousand times before.
What do you think? Is there something missing from blogs out there that I could accommodate? Or do you think what I’m doing now (late 90’s-2000’s-style blogging) is enough?
