Bloggity Blog Blog Boss

I've been thinking it's time to update the look and content of my blog.  I generally love my blog design but worry that it's a bit outdated.  It's probably time to update my content, too. 

So I did a little research the other day and came across the following post regarding different types of niche blogs and how to get started:

And I realized my blog isn't really about anything of the topics on this list.  Sure, sometimes I blog about travel.  I love all aspects of traveling.  I love the planning process, the research, the shopping for a trip, the packing and the actual experience. 

And I blog about my family but it's not a parenting blog.  I think I'm way beyond the whole "pregnancy tips, helping new moms choose the best foods, clothing, safe toys, fun activities for their little ones, planning the perfect child’s birthday party, etc."  As I'm just a couple of weeks away from KJ starting her sophomore year, it's a year too late to be writing about kids going off to college.  My chicks have flown the coop.  And I'm cool with it.  I've given them the wings. 

I post some original photos but it's definitely not a photography blog.  I don't think taking pics on my Samsung S9+ qualifies me as a "photographer." 

I definitely don't blog about health (i.e., food, supplements, exercise products, recipes, diets, morning routines, at-home workouts, gym workouts, healthcare tips, etc.).

I don't blog about e-learning, I don't have a podcast or a live webcam (holy cow!  that would be so boring!!!  who wants to watch me lay on the couch eating popcorn while watching Real Housewives???).  I don't blog about tech or gaming (although, on a recent flight I played a lot of Plants vs. Zombies and have since downloaded it to my phone.  I'm very, very good at it!). 

I think maybe I'm more of a skilled or savvy  "reviewer."  I like to review movies.  Books.  TV shows.  Make-up and beauty products.  Oh snap!  I just realized I'm not a "reviewer."  I like to give my opinion (mostly unwarranted).  I guess that just makes me a bossy blogger.
