When Erin with Living in Yellow posted her “5 Things I Never Blog About”, I knew I had to jump on that bandwagon. There are approximately 5 billion blogs out there – and just as many blog topics. And yet, we as bloggers are expected to find a unique niche. It’s harder than you think, people!
I kind of don’t care about the “niche” thing – even though after thinking about this post, I realize that I actually do have a niche. I am not a lifestyle blogger. I am not a DIY blogger. I am not a mommy blogger. I think I am just a “resource and research blogger”. Hence, here are 5 things I never blog about:
My marriage, love story, engagement story or husband’s name
I know this sounds like I am avoiding the one topic everyone loves, but I decided when I started this blog that I would keep that part of me private. I adore my husband, and I do mention him a lot. But, you will never find his name or picture on here – and you won’t find a 15-post long series about every aspect of our relationship. Yep, I am not much of a lifestyle blogger.
OOTD (Outfit of the Day)
I have decided that taking long pictures of myself in the mirror terrifies me. It’s the thing I like the least. I don’t want to have to have my hair done. I don’t want to tell you where my clothes came from, and honestly, I am just not a fashion blogger :). Bre summed it up here perfectly with her open letter to fashion bloggers. I do love talking about my favorite wardrobe basics and research, though!
My weight, income information, medical history, or when I have a pimple
Too personal, people! Oh, and no gory medical photos here. Ugh. (Well, I have posted some tips that I developed because of my itchy legs problem. At least I didn’t post any pictures of my actual legs. You’re welcome.)
Everyday boring events
I don’t want to talk about when I go to the bank. Or that I spent 2 hours waiting in line. I probably won’t even tell you about the fun everyday events, like the weekend vacations I take. Daily summaries are a dime a dozen, and my life isn’t that extraordinary. If you are lucky, I will sit down and have coffee with you – and get a little more personal than I normally do.
Baby names for my future children
It is no secret that I am obsessed with baby names. And, it is no secret that my husband and I talk about them every day. No joke. We will never get tired of the “What about…?” game. But names that I really want to use for our future children? That’s not happening on this blog. It might not even happen if you are one of my friends I see in real-life. And, just to warn you, if and when I do get pregnant, this won’t turn into a mommy blog with bump updates and mommy thoughts. I have personal opinions about sharing baby pictures and details on the interwebs, and all that will most likely be completely private. Sorry!
Now I want to know. What is one thing you will never blog about
