Now is the time you are thinking to begin with your own blog, the very initial step for creating a blog is to select your niche. The word niche is nothing else but just a fancy expression for the word topic. The question arises that why is it important to select a good and attractive niche; it is very essential because you cannot just write without knowing about the topic exactly and the readers of your blog will not be satisfied with it, all this will result in less traffic and in some cases it will generate decreased revenue.
It is very significant to comprise a topic for your blog and the key point of selecting the topic is that it should be something that you like the most; you should passionate about the selected topic for the reason that it will keep your interest and the matter you generate will keep your readers glued to your writing.
According to an inspirational quote; passion about your work is very necessary because without passion there is no energy, when there is a lack of energy there is nothing. It means when a work is done with passion the chances of productivity are higher.
Another point that needs to be noted very carefully is that your blog will soon become very important to you; it will be something you are talking about all the time. Your blog will consume a lot of your time for writing interesting and up to date content; you will be making your living through your blog very soon. It is something that you love, if this is not the case then what is the reason for writing blog? As discussed above passion is an essential element in every job you do, if there is no passion there is no creativity and lack of creativity result in low-quality outputs.
Is this your hobby or an idea for money making?
Do you want your blog to be a source of money generation in future or you are just looking forward to writing something about your favorite footballer or pro wrestler? If this is the case then you definitely don’t need to think much about the niche. The reason is that blogs written as a hobby just need to be written from the heart, it’s all about the passion and love of writer towards the niche. Be careful when writing blogs as a hobby because many people have lost their job for the reason they have written something very stupid in their blogs.
In other case if you consider your blog as a tool for earning money, then it is very important that you look at the marketplace and consider what are the most famous topics or which topic are helping people earn more. There are several topics present which will help you earn large amount of profit, while some are already comprehensively covered by other bloggers, and few topics fall in the category which do not generate high amount of profit and are not liked by readers. If you observe that niche you are selecting to blog on is already a very common topic or it has large number of bloggers who are already blogging on it then you should rethink, consider some other topics and make decision by thinking through each point of view. Experts quote this in other words like it is better if you are a big fish found in a small pound than the small fish which is found in a big pound.
