I recently came across this wonderful blog post titled, “What I Learned From Narrowing My Blog Niche,” and it really got me thinking about my blog and where I stand. As I was thinking about this, it made me think about where I stand in life. Have you ever felt like you know what you like, but you don’t know where you belong? I’ve felt a bit like this for all my life. I was never in the popular crowd or with the athletic department. I’ve always had my band of misfits, people who just don’t belong to any established group. Now that I’m no longer in school, I think these feelings have caused me post grad life confusion.
When I started Girl In Gamba, I knew that I wanted to talk about what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about relationships, traveling, career, food, and drinks. These are all topics that fall under lifestyle. I’ve never wanted to talk about beauty products or fashion. Sure, I’m interested in those things, but I can’t write a blog post about it. As I’ve thought about this post grad life confusion stage, I can’t help but also feel confused about blogging.
I love my blog but I am terribly confused about where it stands. Do I narrow my topics down? How do I incorporate everything I love? Do I have to give up something? Recently, I’ve started writing more serious pieces and I enjoy this. It feels more real and authentic for me. Yes, I love a good cocktail recipe but I also like talking about themes like the time I was ghosted. Right now, I think I’m calling my niche post grad lifestyle for those riding the post grad lifestyle confusion train. You can call me the conductor!
So, if you’re feeling confused about where you stand in your life or your blog, my general consensus is that it’s going to be okay. I’ve been officially blogging as Girl In Gamba for almost a year now and my blog has definitely changed since I’ve started. However, that is completely okay too. I know I’m on the right path because writing for this blog has been one of the best decisions of my life. I thoroughly enjoy it! Sure, I may have more of a chance as a beauty blogger or a fashion blogger, but I believe in being yourself. What more could I ask for?
