Finding Focus for your Blog

Posted on: March 28, 2013


Readers,

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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?

Definitely an unfocused blog for me at the moment.

Sometimes it’s much easier to keep a journal of thoughts. Like you I enjoy creating and sharing thoughts and WordPress makes it easy! Thanks for sharing!

[…] single day for 30 days. This is a huge goal for me because when I first started my blog I did not have a focus, I wrote every month or so and this year I made a resolution to blog more. (It’s working!) […]

Don't be shy, share your thoughts!
