I don’t consider myself in having a niche neither, even though many friends think I am a pro-Black site. I just happen to be a Black writer that focuses on various things. I can talk about the Knicks, the Black community, lifestyle issues (like how to conduct oneself during a job interview), latest entertainment news all in one heap. I sound like Raven Symone (lol), but i really don’t like labels.
Lol! On this matter, I will have to appear like Raven because I resist my site being labeled as this or that. One of the central problems with niche writing is it can become boring, and what does one do when he or she is participating in a niche community and is just one of thousands of writers in this area. Blogging and writing should be just as natural as life: you should have the freedom to write about what’s important to you and others at any given time and day. I will continue to resist labeling when it comes to Revolutionary Paideia. I also don’t feel any pressure to become a niche writer either.
