Targetting new market segments

As I have been doing this blog, I have mainly been going at it in the two main categories of expat and business anecdotes segments with a few forays into baby and fashion (here and here) blogging, unfortunately I cannot say that either of these new ventures proved to be a huge success and pull in the audience of millions of people that I expected.

However, as I saw an opening in the very hot topic of toilet blogging, I thought my recent post on this topic could be my ticket to the big league. For some reason I felt pretty satisfied with this deep analysis of toilets world wide and decided to see if I could find a market and then tap into it. A quick search for "toilet blogs" on google however showed that I'm not the first one to believe in this attractive segment of the blogging market with quite a large number of blogs dedicated to this exciting topic.

I quickly identified the key opinion leader of the toilet blogging segment and sent out an e-mail, alterting this VIP to my recent post and to my great joy, I quickly received a reply by mail as below:

"Topic: cool toilet !‏

Yes, but I forgot...did you also write about Turkish toilets? Or is that yet another depth of material worth plumbing?

Is that brown, swirly thing next to the toilet what I think it is?

I had to look at the pic for a few seconds to really SEE it.

Da-yum :(

Turkish toilets? I think we would be going into depths that not even I dare to venture with that...

I just hope the toilet bloggers will accept me into the fold!
