Finding My "Niche"

Recently, my mother sent me an article about blogging. I'm always happy with constructive criticism, and one thing the author of the article talked about was 'finding your niche', something that you know a lot about, are excited about, and are interested in.

I have a few things that qualify under that topic:

My church
My family (and by extension, my life)
(I'm sure there's more, but that's what I thought about off the top of my head.)

Interestingly, though one it's one of the things that I've always been in love with, I haven't done much with animals on this blog. Mostly, I've focused on religion and my family. I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate my love of animals further into this blog. Mostly, it's been fairly unstructured, except for Mormon Monday, but I want to try and change that a little bit. Some days it's difficult to think of things to write about.

I've been working on this blog daily for nine months. If it were a baby, it would be ready to be born now.

With over 20,000 views, perhaps it's time for a revamp.

I'll have to think about it over this weekend. Perhaps I'll update the layout a bit and think about how to make it more exciting and interesting. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know!

Meanwhile, more exciting things should be coming on our youtube channel. We've got some great ideas for some videos (not just videos of Kevin, but those will continue as well). We will be taking a long road-trip in June, so we may have a short hiatus during that period, but we'll see.

Again, I'd love suggestions. We really appreciate those of you who have stuck with us over the last few months. We love having you as part of our lives!


  1. maybe you could come up with a few different types of post to do a week. Mormon monday, blog about what your family's doing on wednesday, a post about your experiences growing up (I love to read those) (those could include your experiences with animals) friday? And make sure you link to your videos.... but that's just all that I like to read that you write, so it's a very me-centric perspective. Others might like other things you write best.

    1. Thank you for your suggestions! I'm still contemplating, but I love to hear your thoughts!
