Why do I have trouble coming up with a blog post while others post on a daily or at least a regular basis?
Obvious answer. I don’t possess a niche.
“Niche: a place, employment, status, or activity for which a person or thing is best fitted - finally found her niche - : a specialized market”
I am not creative in terms of art or crafts, do not possess photographic talent, am not particularly good at the anecdotal, refuse to bore people with my daily activities (trust me, they are boring) and if on a spiritual or soulful quest, unable or reluctant to articulate the hows and why of said journey. I don’t tackle political events or world issues and when I do get personal, the post often ends up cryptic and/or incomprehensible. At times I may achieve the status of amusing but not laugh-out-loud funny. I don’t stick to the literary nor do I possess the skill or appreciation to write about the world of art. I love music but my eclectic taste puts me beyond the realm of authoritative critic.
Where does this leave me? Confused.
But I did post today. Perhaps my forté is the niche-less post.
“The niche-less post.” Reminds me of that infamous phrase from an Erica Jong novel. Don’t want to risk an R rating, but trust me, it’s memorable – to those of us of a certain age. ;)
