Blogging and niches- do you have to pick?

As I’m sure you are all aware, there are a lot of blogs available to read, follow and to admire. When you started to blog- did you have a niche in mind already? Or has that developed over time? When researching blogs- as I love my research… there are a lot of blogs out there, tons! I believe that it will be (already is?!) a profession that is here to stay. All of us who blog, we have our own business to some extent. Have you thought about that? You are a business owner. Try and say that out loud- “I am a business owner”. I don’t know about you, but it feels pretty good to say that! As I’ve said many times before, there is a lot of work that goes into blogging and I’ve personally just started and know I have so many more goals and targets to achieve. But I’m pacing myself, I’m doing my research- I truly want my blogging to be and remain something I enjoy. That brings me happiness- that encourages people and that makes other people feel great! It makes me very happy to see that you read the books I recommend, are a little bit tempted to try yoga, drink that extra glass of water and decide to use a recyclable bag instead of a plastic bag. I suppose my niche is wide; it’s about recommending and to make you (myself included!!!) enjoy every single moment of every day. The good and the crappy days. We all have them! It’s about believing in yourself and to make the most of what you have. A positive mindset can do miracles. As I’ve said before, this positive journey for me has just begun and I can’t wait for the rest of this journey to continue. There are no limits to how good you can feel.

There are so many niches out there; how to blog, the tools you can use, baking, lifestyle, knitting, running, how to make money, how to be frugal, parenting, health, fitness and the list goes on and on. I personally don’t think you have to pick a niche. I think it’s more important that you are passionate about what you write and the message you want to share and convey. This could of course be indirect as well; as if you write about a subject that attracts a lot of readers and followers and you start making money and that is what you’re passionate about- then that will work for you as income is what motivates you. Others are driven by feedback, communication and problem solving. No matter what niche you write or pick… I truly believe there are no limits to what you can achieve. So just go for it. What’s stopping you? I truly recommend!

  1. There are so many fantastic blogs out there, I wish I had the time to read them all! I didn’t start with a niche in mind. When my son was born, I wanted to start a diary and what better way than to start a blog and share it with friends!
