Many wonderful bloggers have developed interesting and engaging blogs through their interests and hobbies. They found their niche in blogland. But I'm sure there are some of you bloggers out there who, like me, are still trying to find their niche or have changed their blogs to reflect a different sort of niche. I've been trying to find my voice here in blogland since I started blogging. What started out as a blog to update our fabulous Hob Nobber customers about our next sales event has turned into much more than that. Since we only have 2-3 occasional sales a year there is only so much one can blog about to keep our customers abreast of what's to come. And in the meantime I've been "all over the place" sharing everything from family activities, to workshops, to recipes, to decor, and on and on and on. I even started SEVERAL BLOGS just to keep each blog devoted to one subject. But then I just couldn't keep up with all those blogs! Whew, what was I thinking? ... So I removed them! Hah! I know there are many of you out there who have more than one blog but I just couldn't keep up and still have a LIFE! But that's just ME! There was just too much going on! It made me feel a bit scattered and I prefer ORDER, a topic for just ONE of my former blogs by the way.
But I love blogging so I had to decide...what do I want my blog to be about? What topic should I choose? What is my little niche? What sort of a blog would bring my interests/hobbies together into one cohesive blog? So through a questionnaire I designed, I came up with a niche of sorts that brings my interests and hobbies together into one cohesive ( I hope ) blog.
So I decided that it's time for a new direction for my blog! I'm working on a new name, new header, and a slightly different direction for my blog. But don't worry, I will always include my Hob Nobber vintage finds and many things will stay the same so I'm keeping this blog open instead of beginning a new blog.
Since Spring is a time for new beginnings I decided that I'd shoot for the start of this new endeavor in early Spring! I believe this new direction will help keep me focused on my own little blog niche and will authentically reflect who I am while engaging like-minded women. In the meantime I'll be sharing some hints of what's to come.
Where does THIS fit into my new blog niche? THIS, believe it or not is the name of a restaurant in China that my daughter and her husband spotted. It's called the Modern Toilet! Why? Scroll down.
Why, you sit on TOILETS, of course!
EEEEEEWWWWWWWW! I'll be sharing the crazy adventures of my daughter and her husband in China. Go to deepgreenproject.org to read more about the work they do.
So stay tuned for the NEW HOB NOBBERS in the near future!
