What’s in a niche and why is it so important to bloggers?
Ok, so according to the definition, a niche is a place where you can:
- Be productive
- Be successful
- Somewhere to belong
Ok, ok, I know the video wasn’t necessary.
The song popped into my head and I just went with it!
Niche blogging, according to wikipedia, is the are of blogging for a specific market.
For specific demographics.
This is great for a lot of people.
Having a niche and knowing how to use it is fantastic!
There are so many categories out there for bloggers to nestle into!
|I found this here.|
So, if you understand the above graphic, you are already doing better than I am!
All this graphic means to me, is I have no niche.
I have no blog category to call my own.
I have no blogging home!
90% of the time, I end up choosing “other” as my category.
Or, I default to family/lifestyle.
The truth is, I have no idea where my blog belongs.
I don’t know if I have a niche!
I cook! I love to cook. I love sharing recipes.
However, it is a painstaking process and I only blog a recipe when I feel up to it.
Ok, not a food blog.
I’m a mom! I love my kids. I blog about my kids. I piss and moan about my kids. I am not just a mom.
My posts about motherhood are not all sunshine, roses, boogers and poop.
Ok, maybe not a mom blog?
I joke! I kind of think I’m funny! Sometimes other people think I’m funny.
I’m really not that funny.
Ok, not really a humor blog. At least, not all the time!
I’m a homeschooler! I homeschool. Well, I school my kids at home. Well, my kids learn stuff at home.
I am kind of a black sheep, non-typical homeschooler. *shifty eyes*
Ok, not a homeschool blog.
I’m an Autism parent! I have a child with Autism. Ummm, I blog about it but not a lot.
We don’t like to dwell on it.
Ok, not an Autism Activist/Awareness blog.
You know what?
I have no category.
I am a niche-less blogger.<
I am a Unicorn blogger!
Yes, a Unicorn!
I am a magical blogger that fits in whenever someone needs me.
When you need a quick and easy recipe!
I may be there!
When you need to hear random thoughts from a Mad Mommy!
I will be there!
When you need to laugh, cry, vent or ramble on!
I will be here!
As long as it still makes me happy and I can do it, I will always be here.
Right here at the Domain of the Mad Mommy.
Just for fun….
