Today I'm struggling with this question. I have so many creative things running through my mind, I just don't know what direction to run. I'm looking for my niche? Is there ever such a thing? According to Merriam Webster the definition is such...
1 a: a recess in a wall especially for a statue b: something that resembles a niche2 a: a place, employment, status, or activity for which a person or thing is best fitted
I have highlighted the two red areas that seem to pertain to me these days...can't seem to find my niche. Mark Twain once said: Find out where the people are going and get there first!
Here is a list of actions one can take to find their niche...
- Draw up an intitial list of 10 of your interests
- Scan your bookshelves, local bookstore or library to find reference books you might have or need
- Pay attention to people you meet, their hobbies, their passions
- Check your local bookstore and their magazines to see what interests are being catered to
There's more, and I could go on...bottom line I've done it all and I'm still searching for my niche. Perhaps it's not one particular niche that one must fine...perhaps it's just to follow most if not all your passions and to see where you will land. Perhaps one is suppose to have several niches, not just one. I will continue to search, and I will continue to question and just maybe one day find my niche.
With all this said, I must give a big thank you to Andrea over at http://truesouthernheart.blogspot.com/. She awarded me with a 'you make my day award'. I am humbled and inspired that she graced me with this award. It's my first blogland award, and came on a day that I'm comtemplating so many different things.
Thank you Andrea, you've made my day today!
