Should Bloggers Have a Niche Focus?
Many medical practitioners specialize.
Heck, even singers have a tendency to specialize in a particular style or category of music.
I pose this question because I do a lot of surfing and searching around the Net, for research purposes for my "professional" writing, and also, if I must admit, because I really just dig "recreational" reading of any sorts too. ;-)
As a matter of fact, today I am forced to donate a vast amount of books and magazines to a local thrift store, because I'm in the 100s here with reading materials. I kid you not, I could operate my own personal library from home, folks!
Things are geting way out of hand.:-) I either need a bigger house, or...well you get my drift. :-)
Anyway, I digress...
When I visit fellow blogger sites, I like to know what I'm getting into. Unless it's a personal blog, or one devoted to commentary, I think that the focus should be clearly defined.
1. It's more engaging, and in my opinion, easier to follow.
2. It establishes your expertise in your "niche area".
3. It comes across as being better organized.
How about you? Do you prefer reading "focused" blogs? Is your blog niche specific?
What's your take on this topic?
