On Finding a Blogging Niche

Many articles on blogging success suggest finding your “niche” as a blogger. {Believe me, I’ve read my fair share of blog advice. I am obsessed with blogging, after all.}


I’ve been mulling over this a lot lately, and I think that part of me agrees with the fact that one should have a niche and focus to their blog. However, part of me also wants to rebel against that notion; I don’t totally want a niche just yet.

Part of this could be due to the fact that I’m still figuring out who I am. Heck, I’m in my early twenties. How am I supposed to know everything about myself yet? I’m still growing and molding myself into who I want to be. And I guess that, to some extent, life will always be like that. And also? One of the best things about blogging is that you get to document your journey throughout life. That’s why I love it so much.

All rambling aside, what I have discovered through all of my pondering is this: For my blog, for what my future website shall be, I will have a main focus, but I won’t hesitate to blog about some of my other passions. I think it will go something like this:

  • Main Focus: First and foremost, my dream is to become a food blogger. I’m obsessed with food, with baking, with analyzing recipes, and I love food photography. So I think that, for the most part, food would be my main “niche.” {Particularly baked goods!}
  • Other Ideas: But I don’t want to post solely about food. I think I’d like to post some beautiful photos that I’ve taken, and I’d like to see how I improve as a photographer and artist. I’d also like to become a stronger graphic artist, and post some inspiring graphic art. In addition, I want to talk about fashion, beauty, and other forms of art and self-expression. I want to discuss crafts and other fun, “artsy-fartsy” ideas. And finally, I want to talk about life in general. I want to be open about struggles. I want to talk about my reasons for being happy. I want to write and post my goofy lists. Overall, I just want a beautiful and inspiring space in which I can share my life.

What do you think about blogging? About finding a niche?

Am I crazy, or has blogging been one of the best things to ever happen to you, too?

Because I’m absolutely, positively in love with it.

Cookbook Love

I received some pretty groovy cookbooks for Christmas…

…Some of which contain organic, gluten-free, vegetarian, or vegan recipes. I do not have any gluten allergies, nor am I a vegetarian/vegan. Heck, I’m not even what I’d call a “health nut.” But I do enjoy healthy meals, and I am into trying out interesting, unique ingredients. These books are beautiful and should provide a lot of inspiration for the near future. Plus, they’ll look very classy on my pretty bookshelf that I am currently refurbishing. {Pics of the bookshelf progress coming soon.}

For as tech-savvy as I am, I sure do love physical books. There’s just something about holding the book – feeling its weight, turning the pages, smelling that “new book” smell, and drooling over all of that gorgeous photography – I just love it. I can’t help it.
