Choosing Your Blog Niche

What is a blog niche?

A blog niche is essentially the overarching topic of your blog. If you want to run a successful blog, you need to find a topic that people are interested in.

While it’s great to write about what you love, it certainly doesn’t make sense to write about a topic that attracts no readers. It’s like opening up a store filled with products that nobody needs!

A good blog niche has a wide audience and will provide you with a higher potential to earn more from your blog.

How to choose a blog niche

The truth is, choosing a blog niche is difficult. This is one of the primary reasons why people procrastinate the start of their blogs — it can take months to figure out a topic.

But luckily for you, you signed up for this course and we know exactly how to help you pick a blog niche today.

1. Create a list of things you’re really passionate about

A passion can be anything that can bring you a lot of emotion whether it’s traveling around the globe, discovering the best restaurants in town, or even your journeys of parenting.

It could even be a hobby you just can’t stop talking about or thinking about.

For this first step, create a list of all the things you’re passionate about so we can start narrowing down potential blog niches for you. If you don’t know what your passions are, you can list things you really enjoy instead!

2. Create a list of things you’re really good at

To create a successful blog, you somewhat have to be an expert in your niche and that’s because you should be able to provide excellent content that can educate or entertain your audience. Without that, you’re going to have a difficult time growing your readership.

List out all the things you’re good at or know a lot of information about. These questions may help you:

  • What do you have a lot of experience with?
  • What accomplishments do you have?
  • What skills do you have that you would consider above average?

If you’re having trouble, you can try asking some of your closest friends because they know you best!

3. Determine your commitment to each listed item

What you don’t want to happen is eventually find out that you dislike your niche and lose the motivation to keep your blog running.

You need to find a niche that you’ll stick to. Carefully go through each item on the lists you created and determine whether or not you think you’ll enjoy writing for the topic in the long term. If not, cross it off your lists.

Ask yourself these two things for each item:

  • Is there a lot that can be written about this niche?
  • Will I eventually get tired of writing content for this niche?

4. Choose your blog niche

Now it only comes down to choosing which niche you want to go ahead with! By now you should have a list of items that you can possibly create a blog for.

Here are some tips that can help you decide which one to choose:

  • Check to see if there’s any overlap between your list of passions and the list of things you’re good at. If there is, these should be your top choices for your blog.
  • Break down each niche and write down potential sub-topics and then seeing which niche has sub-topics that interest you the most. We recommend 3 sub-topics.
  • Check out other blogs that are currently writing about the niches on your list to identify what inspires you the most
