Blogging 101 Day 4 – Finding your Audience

watercolor-flowers_audience_title

Today’s assignment in “Blogging 101” was to write a post for your “ideal” audience. That got me thinking, when I started writing this blog I didn’t have a specific audience in mind, I just wanted to share things that I enjoy in general. Now, I still don’t think I have a clear audience in mind. Who I’m I writing for? I guess if I had to describe an audience I would say that I am trying to reach a community of creative and positive people who want to be inspired and share their happiness, tips and tricks.

I imagine that if I had the chance to get together with the people who read my blog it would be at a fun small party in the house of one of the readers (who would write a blog as well, of course). We would probably be exchanging recipes while drinking pinteresting cocktails and talking about design and stuff. There would be music and a lot of laughter. It would be an honest, relaxed, fun and creative community enjoying hanging out. That sort of reminds me of a very random experience I had when I was in New York in 2009. Through a website call Couchsurfing I was invited to a pole dance class / slumber party (ladies only) with a bunch of strangers in Brooklyn. None of us had ever met before, and although it could sound like a recipe for disaster (I was already in a different country, but going to a slumber party with stranger… what was I thinking?), it was a really fun, friendly and enriching experience.

I don’t think this is related at all, but I’m going to throw it here anyway. Somehow I think it is related. Lately, I’ve seen a lot of people writing about a book called “The life-changing magic of tidying up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo (check the talk here). I got the audiobook and there is a part a the very beginning that I really liked. She asked one of her clients to describe what an ideal day would look like for her. That made me reflect about my ideal day. Just the way we are writing for our ideal audience, what are we doing to get closer to our ideal day?

So, to finish this post I would like to leave two questions here:

– What is your ideal audience?
– What does your ideal day look like?

Happy blogging!

  1. Hello, your party sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. What an interesting idea to find your audience by imagining who you would like to hang out with for a casual relaxed evening. I’m not inclined toward the things you mention, i.e. cooking, sewing, and such, but I admire your blog. The header is beautiful and the whole page is very inviting. I imagine that you are a wonderfully hospitable person.

    • Thank you, Carolyn! Just stopped by your blog and I really enjoy your writing. It is interesting sometimes to read about stuff that we are not very inclined to, for a change. What do you thin? Thaks for stopping by!

      • I think it’s always good to keep an open mind and be willing to listen to the opinions and thoughts of others. You never know what might catch your interest.
