Feeling a Change in the Wind

Greetings! And welcome to my little corner of the world.

Blog direction. I’m not sure about anyone else, but I have seriously struggled with this. I started this blog back in 2014. It was truly hit and miss. I knew I loved photography, travel, impromptu road trips and writing. So that is where I started. It was mainly for my family and friends, had a few that read it, and I wasn’t consistent at all.

Fast forward a couple years.

I started my first book, again a little hit and miss. Much going on with my family and career and the blog wasn’t a priority. I did become more active on Twitter and found many Indie authors and I kind of “went to school” as I had no earthly clue what I was doing writing a book! I just knew I loved writing.

Fast forward again.

Now I am active on Twitter daily and committed to that end. I have also committed to my blog, as I love writing more than just about anything. I have re-energiazed my book and am focused on that again. I feel I have “grown up” so to speak and am ready to commit and see it to its completion. I’m thinking first draft should be sometime early next year, It really has become a labor of love, and somewhat of another child of mine.

As for my blog, I’ve heard about choosing a niche. Making it an income. I just know I love to write. I have thought long and hard about a niche. And up to this point, I cannot do that. I love writing, I am writing a book, I am passionate about Mental Health both for professional and personal reasons, I will always love travel, road trips, and my amateur photography, I am a busy healthcare provider with many opinions, and have an opinion, thought, or experience on just about everything.

So I suppose?

My “niche” is just doing me.

So my blog won’t be focused in one area. I had considered making a certain day a certain topic, but trashed that idea as I felt pressure and restraint. I have committed to blogging three times per week (if it doesn’t kill me) and the subjects will be what they are. I am also very passionate about supporting and promoting my fellow bloggers in this wonderful blogging world.

I have always believed that we all must be true to ourselves. And so I have decided my blog will be exactly that.

Until next time……..be kind………always,

  1. I’ve found this quite hard. Everyone says you need a niche! I’ve decided I don’t care anymore and I’ll write what I like. I think if you write what you’re passionate about it will show and your readers will appreciate it 🙂

    1. I have never been one to follow a crowd. I may fail more frequently blazing my own trail most of the time, but I have most definitely lived. My niche is just doing me. I can tell you are similar. Get out there and have the adventure of a lifetime!!

  2. Blogging is hectic, but honestly your posts give me a sense of calmness. I think a lot of people stress on niches purely for monetary benefits but eventually you will burnout if you don’t enjoy what you write. All the best on your future venture!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I believe you have to follow your heart and feed your passion. If you fit comfortably inside a box, you never see the view from the window!

    1. It’s been a very slow start. But I believe if you invest in others, others will invest in you. Ramping up my blog a bit. More frequent and random but heartfelt content. Thank you for all of your kindness and support Ruth! ❤️

  3. I agree with Ruth!! Definitely do you 🙂 Whatever “you” is! Every day life is restraint enough and creative freedom is great for the soul! 9 times out of 10 you will organically fit into a niche without trying. In any case we come here for you 🙂 and whatever YOU choose to bring to the table xx can’t wait to witness the next evolution!

    Rach!
