Ok Ok, one rookie mistake I’ve made and it hasn’t really been helping grow my blog is actually focus on a ‘niche’. I have no shame in sharing this, I thought my blog would be bigger by now.
For those not into the in’s and outs of blogging lingo there’s a thing you need to do and that is find your ‘niche’. Your area of expertise, or the thing that your passionate about. I honestly couldn’t find something that really suited what I wanted to share as my “expertise” for this little blog on the internet.
I guess going on a much needed break on our Mexican Vacation from my home did I not see this blog in a different light.
My blogging “Niche” was already coming through on it’s own: Home and Garden
I got some posts out that I do like to share my advice about, but they don’t relate to Home and Garden. They got barely any views.
Views do make a difference when you working to make an income from blogging. Since this blog is a fun creative outlet for me from my busy life being a stay at home mom views are great but I don’t go crazy about how many I get.
With a few tweaks of using the right hashtags and sharing more about our home and garden, my blog will grow. I’ve been WAITING to share more about our home, just life has gotten in the way to do that, like water leaks for example on an area I was ready to do the final photography on and well… I still have holes in my walls at the moment.
I look forward to giving this blog the direction it needs in expanding with the Home and Garden niche.
I’m just someone who loves decorating our home. We live in the Fraser Valley, basically the Suburbs of Vancouver. I’m a big home body. Plus when the weather is good I’m outside. My husband and I already have a home we renovated and sold and the fun we had flipping that one. I’ll have that post up soon.
Speaking of Gardening, it didn’t take long for me to connect with other bloggers in this niche to find me. For those that have and read my blog, thanks for seeking me out.
The topics I was writing about on my blog was Faith, Family and Music. These are all things that are hugely important to me. I like sharing little bits of my Faith here and there on the blog.
In regards to Family, I sometimes share the odd picture without my kids faces showing for their privacy. I strongly believe in children’s privacy especially when it comes to the internet. Lastly, I’ve got my music. It’s tough to keep up with it with my family so young but I’m not giving up on it and already getting clients for my piano tuning, plus other things.
So If your a fellow Home and Garden enthusiast like I am, come along and SUBSCRIBE.
I honestly don’t feel like I’m a pro in any of these areas, just enjoy the journey of creating a lovely home for our family and an amazing time in the outdoors in my garden.
