Since I started this site in 2008 I’ve struggled with finding my niche. What’s the point of this blog, you may ask? Hell, I don’t know. But as I wrote in a previous post, it is certainly cheaper than therapy.
I’ve attended conference after conference and have been told repeatedly that a blogger should have certain niche. There are food blogs, fashion blogs, beauty blogs, mommy blogs…the list goes on and on.
My blog doesn’t fit in any of these categories. My life is one big crazy roller coaster ride that seldom stops, or slows down. And that’s what I write about…the struggle to maintain my sanity while living an insanely busy, stressful life.
I’ve tried to come up with various ways I could streamline this site to make it more focused. But none of my ideas were satisfactory. Then this whole publishing a book think came up and my mixed up world really got tosses to and fro.
Thus, the blog was neglected. I stopped writing. I think there was a stretch of three weeks with no updates. I just didn’t have motivation to sit and create.
I’m sure it has something to do with the promotion of my book. I was planning a book launch party, approving final drafts of the manuscript, writing press releases…. I was busy, really busy; more busy than I’ve even been in my life.
And I was overwhelmed. This whole published author thing was uncharted territory for me so I tread carefully, very carefully. I’m still in the throws of marketing and having a difficult time keeping my head above water.
But one thing is for certain, no matter how busy I get, how overwhelmed I become, or how stressed I may feel, I will always come back to my blog.Pin It
