When I started this blog, it was a place for me to write about things other than my celebrity crush on Richard Armitage (which I had a separate blog for). when that started to wane (and I finally accepted it), I still blogged sporadically but with no real direction. then I discovered Dan Stevens, and he quickly took over.
I haven’t been able to devote the time and energy towards blogging lately that I would have liked, due to unresolved (still!) stomach problems that have been wearing me down. I have an ulcer- I know it, the doctor knows it, but I have to jump through hoops just to be sure. ugh.
It’s a new year, hope is on the horizon, and so I think investing myself in this blog a bit more will help my peace of mind. all sounds good, right? the problem is, I need direction. random questionnaires are fun but I can’t do that forever. I could blog about Dan easily but I don’t want to blog only about him. I still intend to transfer my dream diary over here for creative writing purposes but that’s more of a side project. I need to focus, but on what?
I read several blog posts on how to find your niche and refocusing your blog, that were helpful. they basically all said the same thing: what are your hobbies? what are you passionate about? connect the posts you’ve had the most fun writing, with your blog’s traffic stats, to come up with possible subjects to focus on. take those suggestions and make a list of post topics for each one. if one list is longer than the others and was easier to make, then that’s your focus. needless to say, ‘actors/fandom’ won by a landslide.
I’m throwing ‘me’ in there as well, because I tend to ramble on about my thoughts & feelings. a lot.
So, there you have it. I’m trying to focus. I hope it works…
