There’s something about the summer that brings out the fun in kids. Long summer days without any thought of school foster the type of carefree living children relish every year. The only bad thing about the summer is it can go by really fast. As parents, it is important to…
Do you try to keep your blog geared to a specific topic or theme?
Or do you just blog about whatever is on your mind that day?
I don't have any set criteria for my blog posts, but usually blog about parenting my 5 rough and dirty young folk on our family farm , good old stick to yer ribs country cooking, & getting back to a simpler, more self sufficient way of life.
mine is a mixed bag of my life with my kiddo and exp. as a mom w/ my business mixed nt since it is a part of me. I express myself through my business so it finds it's way onto my blog. I thought about starting a separate one but decided not to.
Mine is about whatever is on my mind at the time I write a post. But I usually end them with a little about what is going on with my family. Just so I can kinda keep a journal about what has been going on in my household. :)
When I started, my intention was to blog more about work, in a kind of behind-the-scenes-of-local-tv-news kind of way (hence the Anchorman reference in my title- www.stayclassy.typepad.com ). Really, I end up blogging about my baby 75% of the time, with the rest divided between work, my husband, and random other stuff. It's too hard to stay on-topic-- I go wherever my mind wanders on any particular day!
I try to stay focused on my niche because I feel Moms need some support in order to feel their creative hobbies are worthwhile. It's so easy to put ourselves and our interests aside for our families and I believe we can have it all if we decide to commit to it...so my long winded answer is - I'm a niche blogger. That said, being a mother and all it entails does factor into my niche topic so I do post about some personal things, I try to keep it to a minimum though.
