Hi Theo,

Thank you for your comprehensive course, I have learnt so much about blogging and website from it 😊 

My website isEmbrace Our Calling. It is a personal blog about discovering our vocation in life and learning tips about productivity and work-life balance. My niche audience are working adults in their 30s and 40s who are seeking clarity in their life calling (usually experiencing the dreaded mid life crisis). 

I would like to hear feedback about:

  • Is my niche area consistent with my target  audience?
  • Am I clear with my messaging?
  • I am not sure how to monetise a topic like this, although it is not in my priority in the near future. Any suggestion on this?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Marcus, your blog is looking great!  

Yes, I believe the subject matter is consistent with the target audience of 30's to 40's, although I would perhaps include 50's as well.  Reason being that because we now live longer, people are often still building a career or even still looking for a life purpose in their 50's (or even older).

Yes, your messaging is clear and I particularly like the way you've included your own story.

Regarding monetization. Are there any courses you could affiliate with?  Or even coaching programs.  The Amazon Associates program is a good option for books. There are probably other things you could do eventually, such as blogging about events, excursions, etc, which opens up new possibilities for monetization.

Thank you, Theo! Your feedback meant a lot to me! 

Yes, I will expand my target audience to include those in the 50's as well. 

I will also keep your suggestions in mind. The subject matter I have chosen somewhat demands that I put more thought into content building and depth, so monetization has to be at the backburner for now. But it helps to be on the lookout. 😉

I totally agree with you Theo! I am in my 50s (early) and I have struggled with finding my purpose and I do like Marcus' blog. He has hit on an excellent topic of interest. Jayne
