Unlike many of my fellow bloggers, I don't have a specific niche, instead I have a kaleidoscope of topics that reflect my passions, hobbies and quirks that make me, well, me!
What is a niche?
A niche is one topic that allows you to concentrate your writing on. It also means your audience is pigeon holed, which can be a really good thing if many are interested in reading about that one particular topic.
Also if you want to use the blog to make money, investors will be making themselves heard for your niche. A Lot of bloggers I have met on my journey even blog for a living. Great, if you have a lot to share on that one topic. Down side to my way of doing things, no brands or collaborators want to work with a multi niche blogger.
Then why? I hear you ask do I not concentrate on a niche?
I am so so happy I don't specialise! I can write about what I love, I am free! so to speak, to write about whatever inspires me. I can tell my story. Like all this I list below:
One of my favourite posts was a personal story 'how can you describe the heartache of a breakup' read it here:
And I love sharing my knowledge and experiences, such as '8 steps you should know when moving home' :
Another part of my blog is set aside for the things I have interests in, such as nail art, coffee and cakes, here is my latest post in one of those topics: 'why Christmas Nail Art is important' :
Why I've called myself a kaleidoscope
A kaleidoscope is colourful, random, interesting and you never know what is coming next, but you know it'll be amazing.
My blog is made up of all these different aspects too and my readers can anticipate my posts just as they would using a kaleidoscope.

Is there a niche I'd like to write about?
I know it's actually quite hard to knuckle down to one specific topic, I have seen many bloggers having to make this decision, and I completely understand the challenge now. I do not have that consuming passion for one particular interest, so I too could not make this decision, but if I had to it would probably be my nail art and everything that goes with it.

So when it comes to it, I might be taking the easy way out, maybe I am confusing my readers, maybe I should reconsider, but being different is actually what makes me stand out in a crowd. My blog name means it's all about me, my challenges, my outlet and I'm proud of it.
On the down side I am beginning to feel slightly uncomfortable when I tell people I am a blogger and they ask what I write about, because trying to explain my story every time is proving to lose them halfway.
Q: Do you enjoy my Kaleidoscope approach to blogging or would you prefer reading a more targeted area of blogging?
