finding your niche

I've been experimenting with my little blog here a whole lot lately. More posts, less posts, more words, less words, more photos, less photos- you get the idea. When reading and following along with so many other peoples blogs and seeing how they portray their lives it's so easy to feel a little overwhelmed in not being able to find your own niche of merging words and photographs together to make something that you can be proud of, while at the same time still portraying your own life clearly.

I've never thought of myself as a talented writer (and still don't), but over the past few months I've realized that that's exactly what I've been pretending to be. For me it's hard to find a balance between keeping things light-hearted and happy while trying to be honest with myself and my readers. I have just as many deep thoughts lingering through my mind as reasons why life is good, but often can't find the right words to express what I'm feeling which results to giving up altogether.

I'm sure it will be years before I am completely comfortable and confident with who I am as a blogger, but at the moment I am completely content. With my content, my blog, my readers, and as cliche as it sounds, just life in general. It's all so good.

I'm curious, have you found your "niche" yet?

  3. thank you for posting this... while I think that you're a perfectly good writer, I get frustrated a lot because I don't think I'm good at writing and sometimes it feels like you HAVE to be good at writing to be a blogger. so my niche is posting mostly pictures, and trying to let my photos tell the story. although lately, I haven't been blogging a lot, and I don't really know why. I just don't feel like it. like you said, it's definitely a work in progress!
    I love the second-to-last picture :)

  4. I think for me, it's 70% photos, 30% words. It fits me perfectly. I'm able to get a point across with words, yet still tell a story in photos.

  5. I have found mine, at least I think I have! But in the past I really haven't known who I am as a blogger, and that's really difficult!
    I love this post. :)

  6. ahhhh, girl!! I know exactly what you mean! I'm not good at writing at all, and sometimes it seems like to be good at blogging, you have to be good at writing. And I always have all these thoughts going though my head, but I just don't know how to say them :P So i just try to blog about my life, still trying to find my "style" though. :) It's so hard! :P I love these photos btw. Soooo gorgeous! :)
