What’s My Niche?
I happened upon a Twitter Party put on by Christian Mommy Blogger about being the Intentional Blogger.
I was immediately intrigued.
What is an Intentional Blogger?
I was reading the description of the book and one sentence caught my eye…
"God’s calling on your life and how blogging fits in is the theme of Intentional Blogger." #WOAH #intentionalblogger

I’ve been thinking on and praying about going to Allume again this year. I really enjoy the fellowship of this conference.
The one thing that stands in my way is finances. It runs me about $1000 to go.
I won’t be able to make this happen without a sponsor.
Here in lies my problem.
How do you find a sponsor when you don’t have a niche?
First, and foremost I blog Transparently for Christ.
I also blog about Homeschooling.
I dabble in Frugal Living.
I’ve blogged about being part of the Sandwich Generation and Grief. I’ve started adding Self Sufficiency and Prepping to my Heinz 57 array of topics.
So how does one go about finding their niche when one is clearly an outside the box type of blogger?
Does it matter if I have a niche if I am blogging for Him? If every post I put up is to glorify Him in some way? Intentionally?
Do you have a niche on your blog?
Are you an Intentional Blogger?
I’m in the same quandry. 😛
I have the same problem. I’m trying to focus and determine what message He wants me to give. But I also think its ok to write on a variety of topics, as long as they fit your core message.
As to sponsors, why don’t you pick the topic where you write the most and approach sponsors in that area? Or pick one of your favorite companies that you’ve blogged about before and ask them.
Just now starting to get a clearer idea of where my passions. I had a sort of epiphany the other day when I had to briefly describe my topics for an affiliate program. When I had to be efficient with words I was forced to generalize. I was completely caught off guard by my answer. I’m just starting the Intentional Blogger with great excitement.
You are not alone!!! I have felt pretty lost lately as a new blogger, trying to find my foothold and my place in a huge sea of Christian bloggers. My biggest question I’ve been asking is “what sets me apart?!?”… and unfortunately right now, I’m just not sure. All I know is I want to encourage and lift people up while sharing God’s love. Can I do that while still writing posts about craft beer? 😉 I get the feeling there are a lot of us out there who feel a bit lost!
I hear you! I am a total Heinz 57 blogger! 🙂
