What is this blog even about?


This question has been gnawing at my mind ever since I took a break from blogging this past March. I spent weeks of my life wanting to blog but at the same time not sure if anything I had to say was exactly "relevant." After blogging for my university's admissions blog and Her Campus for years, I've been trained to only write things that will interest and benefit others in some way, which makes writing hard when I don't totally know who my audience is anymore.

I've finally started blogging again and unfollowed any "big bloggers" that I wasn't absolutely in love with because I'm human, so I like to compare things like comments, photo quality and stupid things like that that really don't make a post more interesting at the end of the day. Whenever I think of what a successful blog looks like I picture Helene in Between or Vodka and Soda. Helene manages to write about the most random things with photos that don't look like they were shot for a magazine, and people still keep coming back!

My ultimate blog crush is Kathy though, I seriously get excited when she leaves a comment on my blog. Like how the hell did she even find tiny me?! I have respect for someone that can write #limpdicksfordayyssss and not only not apologize for cursing on her blog, but have people love her even more for it!

True story, I curse more than the average person. Yet you would never know based on my blog! I don't know what the hell this blog is even about, but when I started it that was the whole point! I just turned 22, I'm single, trying to figure out grad school, and am the poster child for a confused twenty-something with loans that need to be paid off ASAP. I don't even know what my life is about right now, so how the hell is my blog supposed to have a focus?!

I think I've finally remembered what this blog's purpose was, it was supposed to highlight what being a 20 something feels like nowadays. And the truth is, it's not exciting adventures and hooking up with hot strangers. I spent today cleaning my room because my mom ordered me to and then watched an uncomfortable amount of YouTube videos.

So if you're wondering what this blog is about you might as well ask me where I see myself in 10 years, cause you're gonna get the same answer. I don't freaking fucking know. I guess that's the great thing about being a "lifestyle" blogger, you can write about basically anything and no one can say shit because heyyyy I'm a lifestyle blogger and no one really knows what that means anyways. 

For now I'm going to do my best to stop trying to find a niche, because I will never have the patience to be a fashion blogger, I've never had an ounce of interest in anything beauty related and DIY blogs are for people that don't live in tiny apartments. Like honestly, where do they put all that crap once it's finished?

  1. your blog props are too sweet and gave me a blogging boner. believe me, i'm far from a "blog celebrity" (not even sure what that is??) but i'm glad that you're finding your blogging voice because this space is all for you - you write what you want and make no apologies for it!

  2. I'm not sure I know what my blog is even about either! I just go with it! :) I used to be more of a beauty blogger, but it got too expensive and I have big stash of stuff that I haven't even opened yet.

  4. After publishing this I realized most of us dont. The hardest thing after finding a niche is finding the perfect blog design!

  5. I had no idea you used to be a beauty blogger! But I would guess it would get expensive constantly having to buy stuff to review and feature :/

  6. I'm trying my best to not sensor myself anymore, because I'm 22, I should be cool with cussing on my own damn blog! Plus, publishing this post brought out all the other bloggers that equally have no idea what they are doing :)
