I’ve struggled with this one before. What is my niche?

I’m a mom, but not a mommyblogger. Unless you put me in the category of dinosaur mom.

I’m a psychic, but cannot share stories from the psychic network that cannot be named here. They might get sued.

I’m a geek, but my regular readers cry in pain when I post anything remotely geek.

All of the social media thingies that ask you to put yourself in a category, well, I never know what category I fit in.

I started out to build a bridge between myself and Christians who might consider me a Tool of Satan because of my psychic readings. To promote a bit of understanding.

Mostly, I guess, I just tell stories.

There is no storyteller niche.

Ha, Tool of Satan! I’ve been called that before… LOL It’s hard to convince them that I’m actually sort of normal, and go through the same struggles that they go through…

I know what you mean about trying to find a niche. I’m a mom, I blog about everything, not just being a mom. So I’m a blogger. And still trying to figure out how hippie-dippie hoodoo-queen me managed to get a crappola load of Conservative Christian followers on my blog and on Twitter…

What Niche? Why constrain yourself to a ‘niche’? Be free!! It’s like going braless. Things are allowed to take off in any direction they want! It’s natural. It’s exciting (if you’re a guy). And it can lead to unexpected stuff.

Not that I’ve ever gone ‘braless’. I have no boobs. But I have no niche, either. And I’m doing just fine – I think. I AM doing fine, aren’t I? I mean, you WOULD tell me, right? If I was playing the fool? If people were laughing at me behind my back????

*deep breath* god that felt good.

The North American blogging world has probably done all the niches by now.
As a storyteller you can reinvent the psychic stuff changing the names and even when they happened .

Its what we do.

Angella Says:

I totally don’t think you’re a Tool of Satan ;)

I don;t know what “niche” I am either. Heinz 57?

I totally understand the ‘tool of Satan’ thing being an evangelical born again for over 30 years. Never mind that I dabbled in the occult as a teenager (I was told I’d go straight to hell)

I appreciate your wisdom and your friendship. I’m on that journey to explore my gifts and rid myself of that unnatural (and unholy!) fear imposed by the church.

Niche! We don’t need no stinking niche!

Keep up the good work!!

I would knit a niche for you but obviously, I don’t have a clue what one even looks like since I don’t fit in any of them myself. So my new slogan is “Niche-less but nice.” :)

God! I can’t even begin to put my real life into a “niche,” please don’t make me label my blog world. I guess it would be black sheep or bastard, either describes me.
