Hey! I’m Dara Fubler. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 10 years, and we have an adorable 2-year-old son. I blog at www.living-story.weebly.com
and my niche is Christian living, encouragement, and inspiration, mostly told through my experiences as a mom and musician. I love to encourage others, and challenge them to live out a genuine, vibrant faith!
Do you have a blogging schedule? or just write as you feel inspired? Share what works for you and why!
I don’t have a specific schedule, but I do post at least once a week. My blog is only a couple months old, so I feel like once a week is a good pace for me right now. I am super busy with my toddler and my work as a musician, so this is something I do on the side, not for profit…..yet! I definitely write when I’m inspired, though. I keep a journal with me everywhere I go and jot things down for future posts…..you never know what you’ll experience that has the potential for a great blog post!
What is your blogging niche? Do you think it is important for bloggers to keep to one or two topics, or do you think it is okay for one person to cover multiple categories on one blog? Why?
I would say that my niche is Christian living and inspiration, as told through my thoughts and experiences as a mom and a musician. My main goal is to encourage others and share the light of Christ. While I welcome all readers, I tend to have more female readers than I do men, and that’s fine with me! I believe a personal blog should be a means of expression, so you can really cover as many topics/categories as you’d like. Now….whether having multiple topics is conducive to gleaning readers, I don’t know. But, each blogger needs to stay true to themselves, while defining what their individual goals are, and deciding what they see as a successful blog.
Share a link to your favorite post you’ve ever written. Why is it your favorite?
I have many posts that I love for one reason or another, but if I had to pick one, it’d be Mustard Masterpiece. This post began as just a Facebook post, and received such attention that a friend of mine actually suggested I start a blog. It was sort of……the flagship of my blog, and it was the first time I had experienced something that I knew I had to share with others because it was such a powerful thing in my life.
