The first step in starting a blog is to have something to write about (duh). Unfortunately, this is not always as easy as it sounds. Most of us think of a topic like “I want to write book reviews”. While that is good and fine, it is so broad that it may be difficult to gain a consistent following.
Although a broad topic can succeed, it is challenging. Your best bet is to target a specific audience and then work out from their as time goes on.
Take Fiverr Daily, for example. Although I love entrepreneurship and freelancing online – there are a million and one blogs covering those topics. Therefore, I have selected the niche of micro jobs. Specifically, how both buyers and sellers can benefit from small tasks done by freelancers. As the site grows, I can either expand it to other topics or start a new blog.
How to Decide on a Blog Niche
Finding your niche is easy for some, but for most of us it takes a lot of work. If you chose a topic that you hate because it has a high demand, it won’t be long before you hate having to write. If you write about something you love, but you can’t monetize it (which is rare, but still possible), then you are going to have a great blog – but not one that you can earn from.
To select the right niche for your blog, consider:
- What topics make you excited?
- Which topics are you familiar with?
- Is the topic broad enough to give you plenty to write about?
- Is the topic narrow enough to keep you from being lost in the noise?
- Will you be able to make money from your niche?
Ultimately, there are a million topics that you can write about. The challenge is not finding one, but finding which one.
