I've been meaning to write this post for such a long time. I guess I've been putting it off or something. But it's something I've found hard,and bloggers seem to have so many different opinions on it.
I used to think it wasn't a problem, and I could just write about whatever I wanted to write about. I'm starting to feel like it is an issue now though.
Mainly because it feels harder to connect with other bloggers and the blogging community in general.
Sometimes I feel like a lifestyle blogger, but I have children so it occasionally feels like I have nothing in common with other lifestyle bloggers, especially during Twitter chats.
Other times I feel like a Mummy blogger, because I do write about being a mum, but I write about other things too and I don't write about my 'daily life' like many other Mummy bloggers do. They seem more experienced, talented, knowledgeable. Because I have children, does that mean I have the skills to be a Mummy blogger?
I feel like I'm not a proper Mummy blogger.
I'm finding it hard to connect with other bloggers, sometimes we don't have a lot to talk about, other times I feel like, I'm the odd one out. I try to chat to other lifestyle bloggers and it feels like I don't fit in, like I'm the mum who's just trying be cool with the youngsters. Haha.
But in a totally ridiculous way, I don't feel like I fit in with the Mummy bloggers either. They seem more experienced, talented, knowledgeable. Because I have children, does that mean I have the skills to be a Mummy blogger?
It's probably just me being insecure.
Do you have a niche? Do you find it harder if you don't have one?
It sometimes feels like being back at school, not fitting in properly, not being part of a group. Just me.
I just feel like I don't know where I belong.
