As you have noticed by now my blog tends to focus on many topics including general interest, new technology, good reads, places to buy shoes etc. Check out on a personal note for more reasons why. I keep this blog as a journal for creative release and believe some of you-not the broad consumer market but the small creative niche market – might be interested in reading, liking, sharing and commenting on different topics. So far so good.
I could focus on the book I self-published: Gywn’s Tale a short young adult fantasy.
I could focus on 45 Days of Shoes and fashion trends via Instagram.
I could focus on being a freelance entrepreneur and how gaining clients and working on projects is fun and exciting.
However there are plenty of sites that have a very focused blogs and messaging. So without further ado here are my three tips on defining your focus:
- What are you interested in? What are your passions? Because you’ll be writing about something you know you’ll be able to provide better tips suggestions and recommendations for your readers.
- Define your market. We can’t all be Wal-Mart a one stop shop for everything! Where do you go for fashion advice? To Wal-Mart or to the fashion blog where you saw some unique trends you’d like to add to your collection? If you have a travel blog I want to see pictures and if you’re sharing unique gadgets well your blog just became by gadget go to blog. My weird gadget pick of the day: It’s a lamp, it’s a book it’s a lamp book
- What happens if you don’t have a focus? Nothing. Not to say that you won’t get readers, likes and re-blogs it will just be harder to find a place to share your message.
Yes I am preaching to the choir. Carry on writing and share a link to your focused or unfocused blog. What are the pros and cons you have found?
