How to choose a good and profitable blog niche


As a blogger you don't just jump into the blogosphere and start writing and publishing you feel like and expect people to start reading any post you publish. Of course that is not possible because when you start like that, people will see you and your blog as lacking organization and form. So but to get your readers always coming back for more; you need to organize your blog very well not just only by designing but by writing on a particular area or subject. This particular subject you are writing on is your blog's niche.

All they know is the most popular ones that people normally blog on and they always end up blogging on those popular niches forgetting that it would be hard for them to succeed in such niche since there are already a lot of bloggers on that niche.

HOW TO CHOOSE A PROFITABLE BLOG NICHE



Having known most the blog niches, it is now left for you to choose a good and profitable niche for yourself. Don't believe that once a particular blog niche is profitable to someone that it will also be profitable to you because his/her passion is not the same with yours. So while choosing a niche check that particular niche that will be profitable to you as an individual.

I know you must be Wondering how you would know the blog niche that would be profitable to you as a person. The answer to this question is simple and that is "passion".

What do I mean by passion?

What I mean by passion is choose a niche(Subject) you have great love and passion for. For instance, if you love toys so much, you call start a blog on toys and other related story not going to write about cars since you know you don't like talking about cars. When you start blogging on topics you have great passion for:

• You will find it difficult to abandon your blog even if its not making profit for you yet.
• You will always dedicate more time in your blog
• You will hardly run out of things to talk about.
You will also write engaging and problem solving contents.

But should you do otherwise , that is blogging on a niche that have no passion  for ; the reverse will be the case and it will always show in your contents because you can never present you points well in an engaging and attractive manner.

HOW TO KNOW YOUR PASSION



To know topics or subjects that you have passion for and which you can use as the niche of your blog, you will need to ask yourself certain questions and once you are able to provide good answers to those your questions, then you will choose a good and profitable blog niche for yourself and you will certainly stand out in the blogosphere.
Questions you will ask yourself includes:

• What are your hobbies
• What things do you like talking about
• What are the things you find yourself doing all the time even when you are bored or tired.
• What is the topic you can talk about for hours without getting tired or running out of point.
• Then lastly but not the least, ask yourself ; if you could do something for the rest of your life without receiving any payment, what would that be.

After asking yourself all this questions, you might have come up with up to three or more subjects or ideas which you still need to choose from. Write those subjects down in a paper. I said that you will come up with up to three or four ideas because one question might have two or more answers depending on the individual. So but if you have numerous subjects to choose from, don't be afraid you still have a way to choose one out of them all.

So to choose from the list of niches that you have, bring out each niche and try to write down all the topics you can think of under each niche. Once you are through doing this, check that niche that have the highest number of topics, this might just be the best and the profitable niche for you.

Note that if you have two or more niches that are related and you have enough topics to write on under them , then you can combine the niches. But don't combine more than three niches so that you blog wount loose form or organization .

Now you can proceed to creating your blog with a domain name related to your niche.
