I've been thinking a lot lately about my blog and how much I enjoy putting in effort to brainstorm and write about anything I want to. It gives me a way to candidly share who I am and what I like. As a natural result, I'm not only able to share my experiences, but I can also connect with people who share similar experiences and/or interests.
To some people, it may see a bit anti-social to be connecting with people via the world wide web, but I find it oddly comforting. If people don't relate or appreciate what you share, they are not compelled to read anything. If they like what they see on your blog, they can share their encouragement with a "like" or a comment. Seems like a pretty straightforward relationship to me.
My biggest problem is that I need to work on driving engagement and increasing the amount of people that see/read my blog beyond friends and family. So, after doing a bit of reading on the subject, I decided my first goal would be to "brand" my blog, if you will.
Based on the types of things I've posted and the types of things I want to post about in the future, I've decided to declare myself a Lifestyle Blogger.
A lifestyle, by definition, is "the way in which a person lives". When I think about the kinds of posts I've shared thus far, that's exactly what I've been doing: sharing my personal lifestyle. I haven't had a specific message that I've shared other than living on the bright side, so I've also covered some different topics ranging from sharing my holidays or sharing quotes that I've lettered.
So, please wish me luck as I move forward—hopefully on (at least a slightly) larger scale and more consistent pace—as a newly, self-proclaimed Lifestyle Blogger!
Live on the Bright Side!
