What kind of niche blogger would I be?
This sounds like an absolutely ridiculous sort of musing, coming from Ms. Random over here. I mean, this blog is probably even less focused than the average lifestyle blog, and I like it that way. Most of the time I can't imagine running a niche blog, however, I have a few ideas about what kind of blogs I might have been the author of in a parallel blogging universe...
1) A Sewing Blogger. With a focus on dressmaking and themed/quirky outfits that aren't quite costumes, so that they can be worn in real life. I'd love to learn advanced seamstress skills and design clothing for myself. There's a secret side of me that wants a sewing room filled with all my equipment and tons of material and the skills to be able to make the things I imagine.
2) Theme Park Blogger. I would make a list of all the theme parks I wanted to conquer, and then conquer them. I tend to research vacations pretty heavily before going, so I'd put together resources with park information and strategies to get the most park out of each day, as well as rate parks on a value-for-money scale and choose my favorite rides in every park. This blog would be a combination of Pinteresty resource posts with practical information on parks along with not-so-pinteresty colorful tales of adventures and misadventures while on trips. I would travel the world going to theme parks, and people would mock my obviously skewed priorities.
3) A Dollhouse Blogger. I would spend limitless amounts of money (after all, this is my imagination) creating elaborate dollhouses to fit every sort of theme and time period in existence. I'd have the cutest mini-rooms out there and people would read my blog purely for the entertainment value of seeing a grown woman so unabashedly committed to dollhouses. I'd probably delve a little into small-scale model building as well, another pricey but fascinating hobby.
4) A Prank Blogger. This would be a joint blog with Angel, of course, as he'd be the source of most of the pranks. I tend to be pretty picky about pranks and could probably chat endlessly about the importance of elegant, clever pranking as opposed to the sort of pranking that is vulgar, common, and mean. I love the kinds of pranks that end up putting a smile on someone's face. (Speaking of smiling faces, 9 months after he left the hospital, Angel's former coworkers are still finding the pictures of his face that he taped to obscure locations all over the unit). I think this would be a really fun blog to create and find content for, but it probably wouldn't appear, at first glance, to be a highly professional endeavor.
It's probably equally obvious that these niche blogs of mine would be awesome, and that they are completely impractical. Sewing rooms? Dollhouses? Endless pranking? Inconceivable!
What realistic or unrealistic niche blog do you secretly think would be fun to write?
