Something. I'm just not sure what.

I know what my problem is. I have no niche. My other problem? At 29, I still don't know how to say "niche." (Guess I should've added that to my list.) Is it neesh? Or nish? Or nitch? (No, really, I'd like to know 'cause it's totally one of those words I refrain from using so I don't look like a complete dumbass.) (Is "dumbass" one word or two? Shit.) So, I have no niche. I don't know what the hell I'm doing here. I know I want to continue blogging (maybe even more regularly) (don't hold your breath) but about what? Everything I think of seems so... dull. Granted, the things I wrote about back in the day were dull, too. (Back in the day = pre-divorce.) But I was content back in the day. I'm not content now. I'm bored. Fuck, am I ever bored. I need a change. (In more ways than one, apparently.)


  1. Why do you want a niche? I am wondering.

    I have asked myself this question, for my food and personal blogs. Then i come to the conclusion that i dont want to pigeon hole myself into just baking, or yarn stuff, or asian food... For personal, i dont want to just talk about dating, or book/movie/tv/music reviews or running. As long as im honest in both spaces it all works out.

    I think the readership you've garnered is solid, i come back because you're fresh, raw and real. That is your niche.

    Merriam webster pronounces it "nitch"but it is also acceptable to say it like "neesh". And "dumbass" is 1 word.

  2. Maybe don't think too hard about it, baby.
    Just write.
    Forget about niches and dumbassness- we come here to read you, so you gots somethin' going on.

  3. Rory is right...don't think so hard about it. Just write what comes to mind...it's all good.

  4. You should write about how much you hate people. I think it would be therapeutic.

  5. Hey.
    Are you gonna do NaNoWriMo?
    Let's do it.

    Shit. Really??

  7. Honest.
    Ya wanna do it?
    I'll push you if you'll shove me.

  8. C'mon baby.
    You know you want to.

    All right. I'm in. (There better be a prize at the end.)

  10. Niches are overrated. I don't have one either and finally, finally, I don't care. Maybe.

  11. There's plenty of people out there without a niche, just like you. :) You just have to find us and we become your niche. :)
