Should You Stay Within Your Niche as a Blogger?

Should You Stay Within Your Niche as a Blogger?

Should you stay in your niche as a blogger? This is a question I have often asked myself, but more so now I have other bloggers ask me. Niche is a hot topic it seems like currently in the blogging world. Is it okay to step out of your blogging niche? Should I just stick to the topics I blog about? These are the questions I see all over the blogging space.

Blogging is full of many queries and questions and I feel like there is always something new to learn. I also feel like I am constantly changing and advancing my strategy, which is a lesson on how fast new things appear and how fast things become irrelevant. I thought today for open discussion Saturday I’d share my thoughts, and share the results I have had from moving out of my niche into what I do currently.

Remember this is open discussion Saturday, so as always I want to hear your thoughts and your own experiences of this too. So once you have read the post, leave a comment!

3 Ways to Adjust Your Self-care Routine For Autumn

Its so important to me to make sure that self-care is practiced all year long, but I agree that it should be adapted as the seasons change. The self-care routine we do in summer should be different to the one we do in Winter. For me personally, I find the colder months the hardest on me mentally and physically as I suffer with asthma and Seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

Incorporating self care into everyday life is something I wish I had done sooner in life. It really makes such a big difference to my mental health and my overall wellbeing. I thought I’d share some tips you could add to your Autumn self care and some tips I even use myself over the colder months. I hope they help and you can add new steps to your routine from this post!

How I Balance Blogging Around a Full Schedule

It can be so hard balancing the things that come with life, some things we choose to do and some things we have to do.

I often get asked how I post so much and how I manage to balance everything to stay afloat. So this is why this post is here! I want to share what I personally do to keep onto of my blog whilst having a full time job and other commitments.

How to Make Your Blog Posts More Relatable

How to Make Your Blog Posts More Relatable

Relatable blog content can be defined as any content that the reader can relate to. Thats what I try to do with my own blogging content.
