You may wonder how to find a niche, when there are so many popular subjects. It can be very confusing. But it makes it a lot easier if you just ask yourself a few questions. For example,
What am I truly interested in?
You have to be interested in this niche if you’re going to continually write about it. The way you feel about the subject will show in your writing. Your enthusiasm will show through in your writing.
If you’re not interested in what you’re writing about, then why should your readers be?
What subject could I talk about all day long?
You need to like this subject so much that you could alk about it all day long. This is important because you wll need to continuously come up with new and interesting blog topics within that niche. So, it will help emensely if you can talk continuously on the subject without running out of things to say about it.
Of course, eventually we start to run out of ideas on our own, But that’s when we can continue getting ideas b doing research online. There is an incredible amount of free information available on every kind of niche.
What do I know a little more about than most people?
Usually we know more about what we’re interested in. It’s because of our interest in the subject that we remember so much aout it. It comes easy to us.
Just remember, everyone knows something we do not know. The converse is also true. We know things that others do not.
To blog about something we enjoy doesn’t mean we have to be an expert in the field. You just need to know more about the niche than the person reading the blog
What subject would I enjoy learning more about?
You not only need to write about the subject. You also need to do research.
There will come a point where you will continually need new fresh ideas and perspectives. I f you enjoy the subject enough, this will never become a task. Instead it will become a way for you to grow into an authority on the subject.
