I have recently made a blog page, and I am currently writing my second post. As I sit here, I think to myself, what is my niche? What will my blog truly be about, and how can I achieve my goal to write a successful blog? I believe everyone in the blogging ‘industry’ has some kind of trouble, and have asked themselves these questions..maybe more than once. Do we-do I actually have the ability to complete this? I sit and type, recalling everything I have read, or at least trying to remember..and not a lot comes to my mind. Why is that? I wonder…
I believe I can honestly say, most of us look to blogging for some sort of income. For me, I became a stay at home mom, because my daughter had gone through months of separation anxiety. It got to the point she would scream if we left our house, even just going outside. It broke my heart. When my husband and I decided it was time for me to stay home, we had been more financially stable. Well, things came up, and our emergency fund along with everything else, is no longer available. I have searched for what seems like years, trying to find some sort of at home income, with no answers-except blogging. You can read everywhere about blogging, and how to make money from it. So why not try? I am already in a financial crises, and I cannot find a job that fits my home needs. Maybe I’ll succeed.
What to Write about?
So, still sitting, still typing. Words are coming out in sentences and paragraphs before I can even think. I’m trying to think about what to write, now and in the future. I think about my blog URL. The name had come to me while talking to my husband one night. I have no idea who I am, or what I even wanted to be, before I became a mom. I have hardly any experience in anything, besides being in the kitchen at a restaurant, and being able to shut the world off completely while I read a book. Are those something to write about? Probably not… But I am a mom, trying to discover herself.
Writing for a page, beginning with yourself, trying to “make it big with blogging” is definitely intimidating. I am clueless on what to exactly write about, even though that seems to be what is best for me. I am clueless on who I am, so writing some ‘nonsense’ along the way, could definitely help me out. I have found out though, that I do enjoy writing. It has given me some sort of purpose, even with just writing my second post. I have something to look forward to everyday, and I think that is a great start to explore this new chapter in my life.
I do have many social pages. I have always enjoyed the web, reading up on new things or finding new ideas. I am very indecisive on everything, so my brain is very chaotic. pinterest has become one of my favorite places to go. There is always something I can look for, scroll through, re-pin etc. It really helps with finding everything I need. So come and follow me pinterest.com/mjschmude/ and stay seated for my next post!
