To niche or not to niche

James Governor quotes Anne Zelenka on the value of "niching" your blog. I like talking about just about everything, but I have to agree with my bro that posting lots of family stories and photos is going to drag down a "general reader" blog.

You know, it just depends on how you define "value." From a commercial perspective, unless you're famous (in which case you're your own niche), it makes sense to be the "expert" about whatever it is you're writing. Some people (me, increasingly) just write about what interests them, and the audience may be very small. But if you're not trying to make money with it, so what?
