I have never placed my blog into a category but if I had to it would be a "Lifestyle Blog". They are so many blog categories that it is hard to find one that my blog fits into. I am not a fashion blogger even though I own a clothing store. I suck at taking pictures. I am not a healthy blogger or running blogger even though I run a little. I am not a mommy blogger because..I have no kids. I am not a foodie blogger but I do post recipes. I have written a ton of concert post about country music. I have also wrote about Nascar. So where does that leave me?
I am not an expert on anything.
So I fall into the "Lifestyle Blogger" category. Most people think bloggers sit around all day wearing pajamas blogging, that they live with/off their parents, that they are vain, they are know-it-alls. I don't think any blogger I know is like this.
I feel like blogs that are not in the fashion, food, running, diy, mom, etc, categories gets shoved into lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with this blog but when I fill things out about my blog and they ask what I blog about, sometimes I am not sure what to put. Yes, I blog about my life, my ups and down, recipes, my dogs, my husband and so much more. There is never a place to put this. There are so many lifestyle bloggers that a majority of us are overlooked as they assume we are blogging about our life and who wants to read about it?
Most people assume because I am a "Lifestyle Blogger" that I should be fashionable, take amazing selfies, go crazy over booze, write about my coffee and multiple other things. There are some bloggers who are great at this but not me. I blog about whatever pops in my mind. Not one specific thing. I blog from my heart and how I feel. On multiple occasions my blog is not a happy place due to the tragedies I have had in my life. So where does this leave me?
I have no idea.
Yes, I am a "Lifestyle Blogger" but I am not the stereotype. I am myself, I blog how I feel, what I want and when I want.
