I have been thinking about blogging for a very long time.
Today I came across an old mockup of YouTube channel art that I created three years ago. I cloud tell that the question on my mind then is the same as the question I’m working through now. I can’t fucking narrow my ideas down to just one niche topic. I want to do lifestyle stuff because I made it through my 20’s on my own and I have a lot to say about life’s randomness. For example, I am really good at saving money on craft supplies by shopping at the dollar store. My teeth are amazing because I worked in dental and I know which products are effective and money saving. I also look 10-15 years younger than I am, so I have some hacks in that department as well. (Like don’t sleep on your face.)
I have also been through everything with guys, friends, family, and career. I’ve pulled some interesting financial stunts. I have shit to say is my point.
On the other hand I want to write about comedy. I’ve been around for 15 years and I’m ready to teach. So what’s a girl to do? Liiiiiike is this a blog for comedians, or regular weirdos?
My solution is to stop thinking about it and do both. There are bloggers out there who cover more than one topic in their blogs. Since I’m inexperienced at blogging I’ll have to try different things and see what works.
There will be a Comedy Career category and a Women’s Magazine category in the blog section. I also like sharing my personal musings like this so I’ll keep the My Thoughts section as well.
I used an idea mapper website to organize the content ideas into three simple categories. Check it out! It’s called Mind Meister.
BTDubs I have a confession to make…. I installed a WordPress plugin called Yoast SEO which I am using right now, and it has a “readability” icon that turns red, orange, or green, and frowns at you as you write. It is the most fucking distracting thing I have ever dealt with as a writer and I want to kick it in the dick. Because I have been using this plugin, it has taken me three times longer to write half the word count. Yoast SEO needs to go fuck itself and let me work!
Now I feel better. This post has gone from green to orange but I’m ok with that.
If you try the idea mapper let me know in the comments!
