What's Your Niche?

Hey guys!

Yesterday, I was reading along with an @crafterminds Twitter conversation regarding blog niches.

I learned a lot from what my fellow bloggers had to say...but it also scared the heebie jeebies outta me!

What the heck is my "niche"????

The name of my blog obviously is Life at Eventually Cottage...cuz I blog about my life.

I blog about all of the things that make Eventually Cottage a home to me.  My family, my adventures in making our house a home, my love of crafting and frugal home decorating.

So is my niche crafting?
Is my niche frugal decorating?

I don't know!  That's what's freaking me out!!!

I blog because I love to share things and hopefully inspire some of you with my projects.

My "followers" are truly like real life friends to me...when you stop by and visit me here I want you to feel like you are sitting down and having a cup of coffee with me or hanging with me on the deck with a big glass of lemonade.

When I first starting blogging, it felt sort of uncomfortable to me.  I wasn't sure how much of myself I should inject into my posts.  Would people be turned off if I wrote like I really talk or should I be more formal?  Anyway, over the past probably year or so I've begun feeling more comfortable in my own skin.  I am a real person, and I hope that comes across in my posts.

I don't have the opportunity to blog everyday, although I wish I did.  There are some weeks when I get a post of up everyday.  There are some weeks that I only get a couple of posts up a week.  That's just me, I can't force myself to do things.  If I post, it's because I was really feeling it...ya know?

Now, there are some bloggers who put up awesome posts everyday of the week...Rockstars in my eyes!  You go girls!  It's just not me.

I've seen many bloggers who have multiple blogs for different interests.  That's great!  As long as it works for them.  Hey the more blogs the merrier, right?  I've tried using a different blog for my crafts.  It just didn't feel right for me.

Anyway, I have to do what feels right for me.  Life at Eventually Cottage feels right to me.  I hope you come by because you enjoy crafts, frugal decorating...and me...even though I don't exactly fit into a specific "niche".

Thanks for letting me ramble on!

Luv u guys!

  1. I have felt the same way about blogging sometimes. What is my niche? I don't know that I have one but I do know that I have learned a lot and have had a great time blogging and making new friends through blogging. When I catch myself comparing my blog with others I don't have so much fun. Thanks for sharing your thoughts today.


I loove me some comments! Hugs!
