Today on 31 Days to Building a Better Blog, I looked into the assignment of analyzing your blogs competition. The first part was to make a list 10 blogs in your niche. I got to thinking about it and I don’t know what my niche is as far as it goes with this blog.
Discovering my niche
The first thing I did was open my blog and figure out the topic of my blog posts. Hmmm, there doesn’t seem to be much of a theme except for this month’s 31 Days to Better Blogging posts. The rest are about parenting, homeschooling, traveling updates, photos, recipes, reviews, allergies, life as a CNA and article writing.
Since I already have other blogs that cover the homeschooling and housekeeping, I can cross those off and use the Homeschool blog for co-parenting and homeschool information. I can also add reviews to the appropriate blogs of whatever I am reviewing.
That still leaves many topics but I think I can work on narrowing it down a touch. I’ll work on that niche thing over the next couple of weeks. I plan on researching blog niches and see what I find.
Searching my popular posts
Two of my top ten posts are my Top 13 list of things. Apparently, people really like lists. I know I do! Three are random pictures I have posted of things. One is about my job and the other is about creating a household budget. The other three posts are about random garble that I posted on various topics. Surfing the internet at 41,000 feet, one about the world ending on May 21, 2011 and then house-sitting in the country.
Lists are on my things to blog about as is life as a CNA and photos. I love photos!
I don’t know where to start when looking for competition for my blog. I just don’t know. If you have suggestions, I am all ears!
