Every few months I feel like I have a blogger identity crisis.
Who am I? What should I blog about? And should I “niche down” as the pros say?
For 5 years I identified as a fitness blogger and simply with the word fitness. I wanted to be the embodiment of fitness.
Letting going of that titles is much like when I let go of calling myself an actor. I’ve never talked about this before, but it was REALLY painful for me. I had wrapped up my identity, my being in thinking that I am an actor. But then I graduated college and no longer had a burning desire to audition and act.
Theater is still a part of my life. A much much smaller one. But it’s still the music I listen to. My preferred form of entertainment.
And fitness is still a part of my life and my message. I still SO strongly believe in the benefits of working out. I still preach that fitness is about SO much more than looking hot.
When I first started blogging, I loved putting on my personal trainer cap to dish out fitness tips. Now it just doesn’t feel “right”. My hunger to try every fitness class and report back isn’t there anymore.
So that leaves me with the question of what do I write about. And will people want to read it. Will it have good SEO? And can I make a pretty pinnable image?
I got crafty and brain dumped all my Kayla in the City thoughts.
This blog is about SO much more than me. Yeah, it’s my story and my name in the title [derp, I legit couldn’t think of a better blog name at the time]. But it’s about inspiring YOU. Talking to you and with you. Because without you guys I’m just some gal babbling into the black hole that is the internet.
So, I wanna hear from YOU, babes. What do you want to see on Kayla in the City? What content are you “meh” about? What types of posts do you want to see more of? I seriously appreciate you taking the time to fill out the quick survey below so I can better serve you and get to know you.
And thank you, thank you, thank you for being a part of Kayla in the City.
