Tips For Finding Blog Niche
What does it mean to find your own blogging niche, and why should you stick to one? Having a niche means having a set idea or a topic that you write about. It is a more specific way of categorizing your content and attracting visitors who are interested in that topic. Choosing one gives your blog a little more purpose. It allows you to become known as someone who posts about -blank-.  If you’re ready to settle down and choose a niche for your blog instead of writing about whatever you feel like writing about, here are some tips for doing just that:

Narrow down your current topic list

What are some of the things that you regularly post about? Are there any that you really wouldn’t miss if you stopped including them? If you post about a variety of things currently, try eliminating some of the ones that don’t excite you very much. Try to get that list down to 2 or 3 topics and you’ll have a better idea of the direction your blog can take.

Find what excites you

Writing about things that you enjoy should come naturally. Why not take one of those things and create a niche blog about it? Following your heart is the best way to stumble upon a niche that appeals to you. Find something you love, and go from there. If you’re planning on sticking with it for the long haul, it’s essential that you find a niche that you actually enjoy being a part of!

Use your lifestyle as inspiration

Creating a “lifestyle” blog doesn’t always have to mean that you write about anything and everything that happens in your life. Instead, use some of your lifestyle experiences as inspiration for your niche. Perhaps you take yoga every week. Your blog could be centered around yoga and healthy lifestyles. Or maybe you work as a florist and could come up with some awesome floral inspired topics to fill a blog of the same niche.

Use your experience

If you’ve been trained in a certain area, you’re already one step closer to finding your perfect niche. Using your skills and experience is a safe way to venture into a new niche blog and become a resource for others interested in that area.  I’m positive that there is something that you are skilled at (formally trained or not!), but it’s up to you to unleash your knowledge to the world.

Forget about everyone else

Try to get the “people have already posted about that” mentality out of your mind. I’m pretty sure that there is a blog post already created about every single thing in the universe by now, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t write about those things as well. Everyone has a unique perspective or skill that they can add to any conversation, so instead of worrying about whether or not it’s already been done before, concentrate on how you can make an idea unique to you.

Make your new blog’s security a priority

Internet security is already a major issue. Companies, small businesses and organizations all around the world are falling prey to nasty intruders on an increased basis.

So what can you do?


Enable SSL on your domain


  • It’s important to have a secure HTTPS domain name for your blog. We have a tutorial here on how you can get it set up without too much trouble.
  • Keep backups
  • Try to keep backups of your websites, blogs and important documents both on and offline. There are many plugins to help you do this.
  • Use a good security plugin
  • I’m no expert on this but there are several security plugins and services around like WPCerber and Bulletproof Security. These can help lock-down your blog.
  • Follow basic security procedures
  • Basic security procedures like avoiding public WiFi, not clicking unknown links in emails, having different and complex passwords, keeping software and plugins up to date, etc. go a very long way.
  • Research regularly
  • Here’s an old post I wrote on the topic. Try to keep up to date with the trends as they change.
  • There is no need to be stressed about this issue, but it’s important to take step to make sure that you are protected from any bad stuff in 2018.

Become a self proclaimed specialist

We all have things that we are good at or that we like to partake in. The difference between people who generalize in an area and people who specialize in one is the amount of focus and attention they give a particular topic. When you focus entirely on one area, over time you will become somewhat of an expert in that field. Whatever niche you choose, always be sure that it’s something you can keep up with and use your personality to really make your blog shine. Finding your niche is the first step, keeping visitors around and offering your unique point of view is the next!
The Best Blog Niches to Start a Blog In
I understand that you can show me smaller bloggers that do well in random niches. The question is are they the exception or the norm? How long did it take for them to get to that point?

Now, this list isn’t going to make a lot of how to make money bloggers happy because they want to teach you how to take any blog to the moon. If they really wanted you to achieve their success then they would tell you to start a how to make money blog just like them.

You Need to Pick a Niche You’re Passionate About

Meh.

You don’t.

When you ask yourself why you are starting a blog there are always two reasons:
  1. You want to help people do something. This is the feel good Why. This is the Why you get to tell yourself and others to keep your conscience clear.
  2. You want to make money and not just a little bit of money. You want to make the type of money that the Income Reports people make.

But that probably wouldn’t sell as well.

As a blogger, you have to be careful of being too idealistic. You see all of these how to make money blogs and so you want to completely resist because you know your blog on National Park tours in Alaska is something the world needs.

Go for it. Someone else just like you is going to do something more obvious and make the money they want.

So, here we go. These are in no particular order except for the first one. Also, keep in mind these are the broad niches. There are tons of sub-niches within each one but they all fall under the bigger niche.
