Ok, let’s talk about what are the main factors you should consider about selecting your blogging niche?
Do you really passionate?
The first one is about passion. I have mentioned this tip before another post also. You must be passionate otherwise when a problem or difficulty comes to your way you will easily give up. So Passion is the main factor to consider.
Why do you want to blog?
What is the actual purpose of your blog? Do you want to express your knowledge? Or you want to share your ideas and help others? Or you just want to make some money? Or make some money by helping and expressing your passion? Deciding this will make a huge difference. I’d suggest you express your passion, help someone and make some money. Blogging should not be based on money if you do so, you will fail. That doesn’t mean you can’t make money. Of course, you can make so much money. But don’t just focus on money focus on building a valuable blog.
Crate a balance
What does that mean? Before selecting a niche at first, you have to look at the competition and monthly search volume for that particular keyword you are going to target. I recommend you don’t just jump into a highly competitive niche. If the niche is highly competitive, then you have to move on to the sub-niche. When doing that you should consider about search volume and your passion finds the right balance between these three factors. If you find that balance, you will be successful.
Think about the future
Before choosing the niche, this is another valuable factor to consider. Does your niche have a future? Do you just want to focus on the today or future? So start your research find the potential, search the past trends, and what will be the future trends? You can use a free tool called Google trends to analyze that.
Answer to “Why”
What does that mean? When you blog something about why someone read your blog? If you can answer this question, you are ready to go. Do your blog bring additional value to the readers? Do you have experience which area of you talking about? What kind of new value are you generating? If you can answer those questions, you have good potential to succeed.
I think these tips will definitely help you to choose your blogging niche. Don’t give up, try and try. Find your passion and express it to the world…
