This is something I constantly struggle with. Niche. The thing which makes me stand out against the rest…Surely a concept to fill somebody with inspiration, confidence, heck even a dose of self-admiration? If anything, this drives me to the brink of depression, panic and self-loathing.
What’s my niche? What is my niche in writing? Good God, what is my niche in life?? Do I have one? Can I find one? If so, where??
And so, the reckless pursuit of adopting a niche takes action. Like browsing the local pound, finding the right puppy which will define you – to yourself and to others. Yet it seems I am not ready for this committed definition. I find excuses as to why this puppy is not the little rascal I want following me around for the peak of my life. I make a list of my talents (which are never good enough), my interests (never interesting enough) and even explore my personal life (which lacks my own interest let alone forcing it upon others). People seem to develop their niches in blogs so here I am.
So I guess I’m looking for a little help…What is your niche? How did you find/develop it?And is it so awful not to have one?
