I'm in the Home Decor and DIY niche and I've basically stayed in my lane as far as creating content that aligns strictly to that. However, I do create the occasional recipe for my blog that I'd love to share through Idea Pins as well.
I'm curious to hear if you've ever deviated from your niche a bit and how that went? I don't want to confuse people who follow me or visit my profile, but I do think food and home can go hand in hand.
Just trying to keep things fresh but don't want to shoot myself in the foot either 😅
I have definitely started doing this more and more and I think your audience has the space for that. I would suggest starting slow and infusing it into your current content with some context. Let them get to know you through your current content and then start to experiment a bit!
Great advice Anna, thank you! 💖
I think that it is a great idea that you are infusing more content that aligns with who you are and what you love — I don't think you could ever go wrong with that. Food and home definitely go hand in hand and I don't think you would confuse anyone. Think of someone like Joanna Gaines, she effortlessly combined Home Decor, DIY, and food.
In the beginning, you can always share a recipe and a tip for styling your table or the presentation of the food if you are worried that it isn't aligned enough.
Thanks that's a great perspective!
I love the idea of creating bridge content that mixes both topics in the beginning -- awesome tip ❤️
I’m starting to mix more in and it’s going pretty well. I think as long is it’s somewhat related and I stick to my niche 80% of the time it’s ok to round things out.
I'm so glad to hear that! Thanks for sharing your experience.
I deviate alot actually. I use my one Pinterest account to cover several topics, a few of which I blog about. I guess the main ones are lifestyle, travel, and blogging/business. I've personally never had a problem growing my account while covering different niches. I think having different boards is the pivotal factor.
You could add some boards that are aimed at the topics that you want to branch out into. I've done that a few times and it's gone well.
Thanks for the encouragement @acaketoremember and @elizabethashleykelsey! I published my first new topic pin last week and it did pretty well!
