I've read several articles lately that emphasize narrowing your blog's focus so that you will retain readers.

So how "narrow" is narrow? Does a successful blog only focus on one topic? Two? Three? Can you still talk about your kid (in the context of the topic)?

Here's where I am: I did a topic list and want to stay within AP principles, toddler activities, green/frugal living.

Obviously, those subjects can be a little broad, but I don't know what to cut out. For example, whenever I post something under green/frugal living, I also try to connect it to a toddler activity so that I'm killing 2 birds with 1 stone. That doesn't always happen, but I try.

Too broad still? Should I just cut the bigger heading of green/frugal living and only post about them when I can relate them concretely to AP/toddlers?

(I also don't want to narrow myself so much that I come up short of topics someday.)
