    Do You Really Need a Niche?

    Do you really need a niche? This question has been at the heart of the blogging community for a long time. I’ve seen various answers, and it’s taken me a while to truly know my opinion on the subject , but here goes. To put it simply, I don’t think you do. I admire bloggers with and without a niche, several of whom have been successful either way. If you have a niche, that’s great. If you have found a niche that works for you, then that’s amazing.

    Goodbye 2016

    I have read several posts on the new year over the past few days, that originally I was not going to do one. However, I do not know why, after 18 years on the planet, it has suddenly dawned on me that we only live each year once. There will never again be a 2016 or a 2015 etc. so I feel it is important to reflect on the past 365 days (or was it a gap year?) and also look ahead to what 2017 may have to offer. Sometimes it is hard to remember everything that has happened this year. It has been quite a crazy one! The beginning…
