Why I don't want a 'Blogging Niche'

Probably the most blogger thing I've ever done. 

Probably the most blogger thing I've ever done. 

This whole 'blogging niche' thing has been plaguing me for a while now. I read fashion blogs and I read beauty blogs and tech blogs and also a lot of just written blogs which inspire me more than anything else. The likes of Meg Fee and Scarphelia make me want to read and write forever. And yet sometimes I want to review something or write a list or just do something different, and I want that to be okay.


Just as an aside, I don’t want to have to have a similarly looking photo in every blog I ever post. Maybe I just think this because I can’t get it right myself… but, is it me, or is there just a very specific and kind of almost boring standard ‘blogger photo’ these days? 

As in, I feel as though unless there’s a Mac lipstick in my picture, I may as well not have written anything. Don’t even start me on the Washi Tape that gets wasted, I just want to use it in scrapbooks, I have NO time for randomly sticking it on wooden or white surfaces. That stuff isn’t cheap. 


I just don’t want to limit myself. I don’t want to have to have a whole blog of ‘lifestyle’, whatever that even is, in order to post some lifestyle-y things. I don’t want to have to basically be a beauty blog in order to have an opinion on foundation (trust me, I have a lot of opinions on foundation).

I don’t want to have to basically turn into buzzfeed and write a list every single day. I don’t want to be an entirely theatre based blog, but I do want to talk about it because it’s my fave and I love it. I don’t want to let myself even consider just writing about what I think/feel about things, or just about Jesus, because this would turn into a reaaaaally crazy place. 

I am all of those things. I’m a combination of every single one of them and my life reflects that, so I don’t see why my blog shouldn’t do exactly that. Basically, I just want to be me, on a page. So sorry normality, you’re not having me, or my blog.
