So I’ve had this idea in my head for a little while. Of   having fun being a “different blogger”.

In the sense of what type of blogger I am. What category/niche I fall under.

At the moment, I’m without a doubt a personal blogger.

I see the other types of bloggers go through phases of popularity/notoriety: food bloggers and “mummy” bloggers, specifically. And then there are the craft bloggers,the fashion bloggers, the photo bloggers, the animal bloggers, the activism bloggers, the personal enrichment bloggers, the magazine-style bloggers…

… and I admit to sometimes being jealous of those of you who have a type that’s more specific than personal blogger.

But I don’t have what it takes to become one of those bloggers (either the inclination or the children). But I want to give it a go!

So my idea is this: a blogging test drive

<a href="http://rahest.com.au/web/blogging/the-blog-test-drive-wanna-join-me"><img src="http://rahest.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/test-drive-rainbowtatt.jpg" border="0" alt="rainbowtatt's blog test drive" title="rainbowtatt's blog test drive" style="text-align:center;"></a>

A chance to splash out and try being a food blogger, a craft blogger… a fashion blogger. But under the veil of a… well, I guess a meme? to protect you :)

Anyone wanna play?

I can’t be stuffed doing a MrLinky widget or anything like that, let alone a weekly theme for you to hitch your wagon on.

If you wanna join in with me, just write your post, link to it in the comments below… even grab the above pic to tack onto the end of your posts!

I’m going to give fashion blogging a go for starters. Then maybe craft blogging?

Oh my god, I just realised I could try vlogging – now THAT would be fun (also: potentially embarrassing).

(Now does my previous post make more sense? Crazy ideas don’t jump into my head that randomly… often!)

  1. I would love to be an agony aunt, answering all those questions on love and relationships but really my only qualification is a complete train-wreck failure of a long term relationship so I doubt anyone would take me seriously.
    But still I would love to tell people how to get their relationships back on track or to kick their worthless partner to the curb.

  2. I would love to be a mommy blogger- Hey everyone! I have a teenage girl! Let’s talk contraception… 14 years ago… (Seriously she is pretty cool but would die if I blogged about her too much!)

    I can never usually be bothered taking lots of pics of cooking- just the finished product.

    Fashion- meh! Craft- er not really!

    I may give beauty a try when my new OPI nail polishes arrive.

    Perhaps I could make a fashionable toothbrush holder coloured with nail polish and then blog about how to get children to brush their teeth after eating a cake that I’ve baked?

  4. I thought you were picking for us, so we didn’t have to think :P

  5. There is no way I could blog about fashion. I’m the most unfashionable person on the planet according to Susannah and Trinny. For crying out loud, I have the audacity to wear black shoes with navy pants!! Oh noes!!! :P
