Saturday evenings #socialbloggers chat was all around niches. I was particularly excited to ask these questions because, as some of you may have noticed, I’ve stopped posting only outfit photos and have started posting about beauty products and food/recipes.
- An increased personal interest in these areas.
- To give me more to blog about.
- It allows me to experiment with photography.
- It enables me to attract a wider audience and connect with new bloggers.
I don’t have that edgy, perfect, confident, beautiful or sexy vibe that some fashion bloggers really rock. I’m awkward and creepy and I just I wear what I like to wear but I’ve never been one to wear the latest trends or follow the latest fashion looks – so started to see myself more as a blogger that posted ‘personal style’ posts rather than ‘fashion posts’ which slowly transitioned into this whole new thing.
I do notice that certain topics tend to get less love than others.
Q1 : Does your blog have a niche and do you read blogs from outside of your niche?
@NoorsLense @Naaj_Rona LOL tbe reason why I envy lifestyle bloggers at times haha. There’s such a wide pool of ideas. #socialbloggers

Q2 : If a blogger posts outside their usual niche, does it make you less likely to read/comment?
@NoorsLense @bloggerforums makes me more likely to comment!!, it’s nice to see variety on a blog
