The Niche vs The Commitaphobe
I am not your typical commitaphobe; after all, I have been married 17 years. Then again, in fairness, I make the chose every day to stay with my spouse. I have to know I have an out in order to stay. If I ever feel trap, you can bet I am running for the hills.
The same thing happens in every aspect of my life. That is why it has taken us so long to settle down in one area. It is also why my resume looks like a list of career choices and why I have two completely unrelated degrees after switching majors several times. Maybe I am a big dreamer, perhaps I am searching, or maybe I have a problem with committing.
So, why am I sharing all this?
Because it is bleeding over into my work as an affiliate marketing, I am having a hard time committing to a niche. I am aware that to be successful, I need to pick one niche. One subject that I can give my all to before I move on to another. I know that people change niches, but my research is saying they usually become an "expert" in the field before moving on.
I am not sure I have the attention for that. Or to say the least, I am struggling with it.
Here is a list of ideas I have had to help battle my problem:
1)Have three niche website that I can go between, so I do not get bored
2)Alternate writing days, write one day and research affiliate marketing the next
3)Develop a broader niche so that I can branch out in my writing
Why am I telling you?
I am sure; I can not be the only person that has been struggling with this. I know that there has to more of us out there. I want you to know that you are not alone. I am here struggling right along with you.
It is ok; we can get through this together!
If you have any ideas that can help, please share with us. It is through building a real community that we grow and succeed.
Thank you for listening to me ramble. I am sure that as I continue to grow in the field, my post will become a little more helpful.
Til next time, be the light in the world because there is too much darkness.
