Choosing a Niche for Your Blog


How to Blog / Monday, January 8th, 2018

When you decide that you want to start up a blog, the first thing that would probably come to your mind might be ‘what will my blog be about?’. You basically can go two ways. Do you want to write a lifestyle blog or a niche blog? Well what is the difference between the two?

A lifestyle blog is pretty much writing about anything and everything! This is the type of blog I have. I write about things like Parenting, Books, Blogging, DIY Projects, Recipes, Health and Beauty, Printable Planners, Fashion etc etc…

A niche is a main topic that you will write about on your blog. In my case, I have multiple topics and that is fine. These are topics that I love to share and write about. I am passionate about these topics.

It is very important when you are choosing a niche for your blog, that you pick a topic that you are 100% interested in and that you could continue to write about. For example, Health and Fitness is a very popular subject for people to search for and read about. So you might be thinking ‘alright, awesome! I will write about Health and Fitness!’. But wait – you don’t know anything about Health and Fitness! You aren’t even interested in Health and Fitness! The most exercise you get is getting up from the couch and walking to the pantry for a pack of Doritos! So what do you think will happen to your ‘Health and Fitness’ blog? It will die out because you have very little interest in the subject. This is why it is very important that you find a niche that you are genuinely passionate about. You need to ask yourself ‘can I see myself writing about this topic forever and never get bored of it?’ It is essential that you answer yes to this question because you will need to regularly produce a ton of content about that subject to keep your readers coming back to your website!
