Niche Me

I've been thinking.

If I were a niche blogger people might send me stuff!

I was reading a post this morning where a blogger got sent a really cool American style fridge.

FOR FREE!!

Just so they'd do a review on it!

Now I don't have room in my kitchen for an American style fridge.  I was lying on the kitchen floor this morning looking under the cupboard for stuff and I reckon my kitchen is approximately 14ft x 10ft so I'd probably have to get rid of the cooker or the sink or something to fit one in.

But I COULD find room for a Thermomix ...

Got to be honest here, I'm not entirely sure what a Thermomix is but I'm guessing it mixes stuff and then thermo's it ...??

I think what you do is just chuck a load of flour and eggs into it and, after mixing for a while, a perfectly formed Victoria Sandwich rises up and levitates above the bowl - It's something like that anyhow ...

So anyway, I'm guessing that to be a niche blogger you need to know loads of stuff about something and then just blog about it a lot.

This might be my downfall.  I know loads of stuff about lots of different things like sheep wrangling (but I don't want anyone sending me another sheep thankyouverymuch) and fence building and ...

Well, OTHER stuff ok!

I'm not sure I know a lot about anything in particular but I don't see why that should stop me and to be fair, it doesn't usually ...

Today I'm going to give food blogging a go.

I'm basing this on the fact that in the last couple of weeks I've made a shed load of plum jam, frozen half a hundred weight of blackberry and apple, made a dozen butterfly cakes for Miss Mac and friends for a movie evening and yesterday I made some blackberry ice cream and today a batch of sour cherry in port ice cream.

I think that qualifies me don't you?

SO (nice Thermomix people), please send me one of your thingies and lets crack on!

nb. This is NOT a sponsored post, I have been sent diddly squat so far and have very little expectation that I ever will be.  Oh, and if you were interested, I found quite a lot of fluff and half a carrot under my kitchen cupboard ...

I'm a niche blogger and no one's sent me a castle yet. Even a little, ruined, one. For a perfect Victoria Sponge, you will need: a car, bus fare or stout pair of shoes; a few quid; a Sainsburys, M&S or similar...works every time. Thanks for your blog - makes me giggle - have a great weekend.

It's never right is it Mike?

I could always just make a cake I guess but I really wanted a levitating one ...

Hoping you have a great weekend too!

A levitating cake would have no calories.

I'm a niche blogger, no one has sent me a field, a group of girls or a tent. Honestly I don't know what this world is coming to.

Can I have the calorie free cake now please?

Your right , successful bloggers have a niche.

maybe your niche could be a good looking long legged clumsy cute funny talented writer blog.

Just a thought.

Sarah said...

OMG K, hadn't thought of that! As soon as those nice people send me my Thermomix I'll send a calorie free cake your way.

We have lots of field around here, I'll see if I can get you one before they build on them all!

Awww Joe, shucks, I could give that one a go couldn't I ...

I've got a neiche and two nephews. Would you like to borrow one sometime? I'll do a swap for some blackberry and apple . . .

Sarah said...

Ha ha, I have two neiches and four nephews BP but why not, the more the merrier!

I'd happily let you have some blackberry and apple (I'd even turn some into a crumble for you), my freezer is groaning and I'm struggling to find room for ice cream!

Ive been blogging since 2007 and never been sent anything - fridge or thermi nuffing *sobs*

You would think that as writers we would at least qualify for free notebooks? A calligraphy pen... heck Id even settle for a free pencil.

I'm still waiting Car, it's been DAYS now since I wrote this post and NOTHING - maybe it's in the post ...
