why are we here?

Not why are we here…on earth, but rather why are we here at On a Chicken Wing and a Prayer in the blogosphere?  I can’t answer for you.  I need to answer for myself.

I’m trying to ‘step-up’ my bloggy skills, so I’m asking myself deep, angst-evoking questions about blogging.  I know why I’m here in that I like communicating, I enjoy other people’s blogs, and I have a story to tell.  The $64,000 question, the one that makes my head spin and my mouth spew forth pea soup like the girl in the Exorcist is this one:

WHAT IS YOUR BLOG’S NICHE?  Hell, I barely know what a neeesh is.  Why is it always easier to describe what you are NOT as opposed to what you ARE.  For example:

This is not a mommy blog….although I answer to ‘Mom’.
This is not a photography blog….although I like to take pictures.  I’m a NOOO-VIS..that means beginner.
This is not a techie blog….although I sometimes write about my cell phone, my adventures in shaving and my Keurig.
This is not, REPEAT NOT a menopause blog….my stat page says one of the popular Google searches for this blog is ‘chicken wing hot flashes’.  I googled it….guess what comes up?  Dear reader….kindly accept my deepest heartfelt apologies.  I TRY not to whine, but sometimes…..oh, you know.
It’s not an animal blog.  It’s not a horse blog.  Chicken Wing is not a dog blog, a hog blog, a grog blog or a frog blog

oooops…busted.  By the by, I took this photo…you likey?
Maybe I do compose ditties about frogs (you won’t believe my upcoming frog post!) but it’s only the most cutting-edge, cool, fashion-forward frog stuff.

So, I’ll keep working on my NEEESH and my About page.  News flash to me…..the About page is supposed to be interesting and catchy?…..can interestingness be increased by changing font colors??  We’ll see.

Maybe my NEEESH has something to do with humor.  A satirical martini with just a splash of spirituality?  And fun.  Fowl tales and cock and bull stories?  And dogs….a wienee martini?

We’ll figure it out together.  Thanks for stopping by, whatever your reason.  You enrich my life.  No joke.

Fashion-forward frog love to all.

  1. Kmaybe your niche is the antithesis to the "about nothing" of the former Seinfeld series. Your are "about everything" that you encounter in your world…and you spin well with wit, insight and pictures. Frog pic is Natgeo quality.beijosS

  2. I agree with SarahinSC: your NEESH is certainly humorous with a dose of wise words, friendship and pictures I most certainly LIKEY tossed in ;)XOXO TJ

  3. If you were asking me, I'd say this site is a delightful example of a humor blog. It's one of my favorites, and I'm always excited when I (finally) open my reader and see I have some of your posts to catch up on and enjoy, most frequently with a hearty chuckle. CHUCKLE
