I’ve tried to tidy up my blog a little bit on the advice of an ebook that I read called Simple Blogging by Rachel Meeks. The book is interesting because a lot of it focuses on blogging your way – fitting blogging into family life.
As part of what I learnt from the book, I’ve moved many of the banners out of my sidebar, reclassified my categories and put a new drop-down menu up there at the top of the page (What I write about), where you can see the new categories. Only small changes but I’m pretty pleased with them.
One of the main things that I keep on reading about it targeting your niche. But if I really stick to just my one niche – parenting toddlers in Stockholm – I think it would make for very narrow reading. On the other hand, this isn’t really a full, all-round blog either. I quite like that I just sit here in my own little space, doing my thing.
What do you think? Do you think you need to find your one true niche, or can you be a bit more relaxed about things? I suppose this is the difference between the big bloggers and bloggers like me. And although I learnt a lot from the book, I think I’m also quite happy with how my blog is just now.
