Ideas for blog Niche

Most bloggers are aware of what they want to write. However, some bloggers might be ready but not know what to write about.

This list below will help you make a decision for your blog,

1. Your interests

Jot down all the things you’re interested in without thinking if it would make a good selection. It would be an advantage if some interests weigh in as more specific over the very general topics.

Do consider the blogs, books, and magazines you read frequently before you make your decision. Listing your previous jobs, your major experiences and hobbies will give you a lot of options to select from. 

Maybe you are a fashion designer, love to play an instrument and are good at painting/sketching. In this case you could maybe choose a blog focused on creativity.

Writing them down will give you an even better understanding and eventually help in making a better decision.

2. List your accomplishments:

Many blogs today are basically tutorials. Hence, if you have any significant accomplishments, you could start a tutorial.

Maybe you’ve “lost weight,” “Ran a marathon,” “Travelled solo,” or something else; it could be personal or professional.

3. Popular topics for Niche blogging :

You could also consider any of the topics below as they are and will always be popular.

  • Personal finance – Issues like debt, Income, investing and reducing expenditure.
  • Health and wellness – This covers areas like mental health, alternative therapies, fitness and many more. However, you might need to have certain certifications to talk on sensitive topics.
  • Parenting – Parenting at different stages; babies, toddlers, teens, and different parenting methods.

There would be many more options to select your Niche. However, a lot of blogs generate traffic with high quality visuals. Stay tuned for the next chapter where we discuss the optimization of images

  5. Niche is very important for any website. It should be picked very carefully. Along with the interest, how can you add more creative and informative content should also be kept in mind?

    • Yes. You are absolutely right. You should always keep in mind to make things creative and informative for the reader. Thanks for the appreciation Deepika 🙂

  6. I believe that by having a defined niche, you’ve got a way to already establish your credentials. Your business is portfolio of your knowledge of your area – your brand will tell them who you are. Your content will convince them of your purpose and expectations – in short defining a niche gains more authority. When you become the authority on a particular niche, people have a way of finding you- through your content, SEO and Social Media strategies. Eventually, you’ll become the industry go-to in your area of expertise. Once you find the right niche for your blog, start writing exceptional content – be consistent and keep blogging according to a schedule. It will take sometime before you start plenty of visitors coming to your site and buying your affiliate products. You’ll see the successful results of your hard work all you need is little patience. As always it was a well written post for the day.
