BuckeyeMomsMeet Celebrates Our 100th post with, "What's Your Niche?"

Today Buckeye Moms Meet is Celebrating our 100th Post!!!!

I want to begin this post by saying Thank you for visiting today!  I began Blogging a little over a year ago, mostly because I have always enjoyed writing.  I have always kept a journal since I attended a sleepover birthday party in 3rd grade and won a small pink diary while playing pin-the-tail-on the donkey.  Sometimes when you start trying to use your blog as a business it takes some of the fun out of it!  This being said, If I can do what I love and not have it feel like work, this is what I want to do!

Often times being a blogger folks ask you, "what is your niche?"  A lot of times I stumble with this question, mostly because I am all over the place!  My "niche" is Family Lifestyle.  The problem is when  you try and market yourself as a "family lifestyle" blogger, it is just too broad of a topic.  Companies want to work with fitness bloggers, or food bloggers, Disney bloggers, travel or fashion bloggers.

Over here at Buckeye Moms Meet, I like to meet the world head on as a mom!  I don't want to limit myself to just one niche.  I am a family lifestyle blogger because that's what I know and do best!  Being part of a family is huge!  At the end of the day, you return home from travelling, you kick off your sneakers or your stilettos,  you take a picture of your fancy dish then feed it to your family.  Life is about all these things!  Not just one.

Growing up I had a family of eleven.  My parents after having my two brothers and I decided to share our family with children who didn't have one.  When it was all said and done my parents adopted six children.  We grew up with a home full of love, chaos, and many many memories.  When it comes to family I have seen it all, done it all, heard it all, and am here to tell it all!

Over the last several months I have struggled with the idea of changing my niche to something less broad.  I have decided I am keeping it the way it is for now!  I am a Family Lifestyle blogger, I will continue to talk about family friendly travel.  I will continue to write about Family Health.  I will share family celebrations, and cool products that help our family around the house.  I will share our struggles and triumphs.  Life happens and I hope you enjoy the ride!  Thank you for letting me be me :)  Post :100√
