Finding my blog brand

Finding my blog brand

Every person I talked to told me that it is key for authors to start a blog. And more than that, it is key for authors to have a blog with a BRAND. A reason for people to keep coming back for more. I’ve been searching for my brand for years now.  Every time I think I’ve found it, I figure out something else I want to blog about. So far, my brand is: lists. Not even good lists. Silly lists. Stupid lists. Maybe I do need to find a bran to stick to. I’m not sure yet. But I’ve been thinking about it a lot. Do I want to…

  1. Dream cast Broadway shows and fake Broadway shows. I mean, it’s a favorite past time of mine. I love Broadway so much that I am writing a series about it. Maybe I should do that.
  2. Blog about Broadway in general. See point 1.
  3. Talk about books. I love reading. I read constantly. I subscribe to several book boxes. Maybe someone out there would care about my thoughts on them.
  4. Make lists about being a teacher. There’s never any shortage of crazy or exciting things that happen to a teacher. My life is certainly more colorful because of it. Sometimes I wonder if I can do my stories justice on a blog.
  5. General whining about life. One of my top posts was about not looking forward to moving. I’m not a whiny person, but I have my moments. Should I keep it going?
  6. Complete randomness. It’s worked well for me so far. I know I’d be able to keep this up.

  1. Honestly, I’m still struggling with this. I have over 700 followers for my blog, but I don’t know if I’m really “branding” myself.

      1. I just ramble. Honestly, I don’t know why so many people follow me > <

  2. It’s really difficult to establish a brand, but I’ve found some success by just making sure to have an honest voice about a particular niche or subject you’re passionate about. Sounds like you’re on the right track.

    1. Thank you for this advice! I’m doing my best, but it’s such a slow process, you know?
