Tracy is a sassy ex-pat retiree and Mindfulness blogger. I am on a mission to make mad minds mellow. I want to encourage you to taste the benefits of mindful practice and meditation.
Get Action for Happiness's FREE10 Keys for Happier Living for frantic, workbound people and learn how you to enrich and savor all the moments aside from your overbusy life.


I am 66 years old enjoying retirement and actually doing things I wished I could when working. Skydiving was a recent memorable birthday present. A first grandchild, Matilda, has come along. She has taught me many things.
I adore curling up in the sun with a good read. As Grouch Marx famously said,
“A dog is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”
My most recent at the formerly impossible is starting a blog on Mindfulness. Practicing has made a big difference to my life. Mindfulness has proved invaluable during a bout of cancer and several episodes of depression. My blog is laying out my personal account and experiences as well as suggesting ways that ordinary people can engage with mindful techniques and meditation. I am interested in your stories, too. Shared experience is my reason for writing. You can find out more on Facebook at Mindfulness Way to Happiness at https://www.tracyfryer.com.I am a retired teacher enjoying retirement in Scotland. I practice Mindfulness and engage in numerous MOOCs.
I wrote the bit above when I joined all at sea with this blogging business.
Now I love it. It is a game of hide and seek and trying new plugins and making your site look and feel better.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle -
Here is my chosen niche: Mindfulness for Beginners
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, that could be a direction I am just not sure who your specific audience is. When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Kyle - How about a niche

Mindfulness for stressed executives
Or
Mindfulness for distressed/depressed housewives

Luckily I am now a Premium member so I can start all over again with new website.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, either or would work fine. Mindfulness would be one aspect you could help these individuals with, but your niche is Stressed Execs or Depressed Housewives and there are many aspects of either one of these niches that you could target and help folks out with.

Hi Kyle,
I just got indexed! My problem at the moment is that I cannot delete text that was already on the Premium theme I chose for my home page, words the maker wrote about how wonderful his theme page is. Surely that has to be deleted by any one wanting to use that page for their own. Can you advise, Kyle?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you can delete that. If you are referring to a Hello World type of post, you will find that within either your Pages or Posts tab within your back office of your site.

Dear Kyle,
Thanks for the advice. However I am speaking about text that appeared on the screen with the theme about 'Pure and Simple when I downloaded it, It is the page as produced by the author of the theme. See attachment. Can you advise?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Under Appearance => Customize you should be able to find the ability to customize that theme there. If you are having issues finding this, let me know what your website URL is and I can investigate for you, but this should be within your theme settings.
