What do you find most challenging about blogging?

Knowing what to write about, or what not to write about, is the most difficult part of blogging to me. Sometimes I just have no idea. Even these writing prompts can't help me sometimes. A lot of times it seems like the more I want to write, the harder it is. Or there are times that I desperately want to write about something that I know I shouldn't. I'm talking about private things that have no business being on the internets. It is difficult sometimes because this is my outlet. This is where I write my thoughts and can get feedback.

One of the problems is that I do not know what my niche is. Day 4 in 31 Ways to Build a Better Blog is to analyze a top blog in your niche. Here is where I got stuck. Pretty early on, eh? What is my niche? It used to be the single-working-mother blog but not so much any more. I'm more than that now. There is more to me than being a mom who works. But what does that mean to me? Who knows.

  1. I know what you mean about trying to find your niche...I struggle with that as well. I figure that as long as I keep writing everything will work it self out eventually. :)

  2. Yes--how do we find our niche? Good question. I started my blog as a way to help me heal from PPD, but it evolved into something different. I don't even really talk about PPD all that much. Yet I was nominated on Circle of Moms as one of the top mental wellness blogs. I was floored. Is that my niche? I don't feel like it is, but if my readers do, then I guess it is!

  3. You don't have to have a niche. At least that's my way. I also had that validated for me this past weekend at a blogging conference, and I learned it is totally OK to be niche-free. :) And that's the way I wanna be!! You be you. :>
