For those of you that are interested in starting your own blog in 2019 – this series is for you. I’m breaking it down for you in six posts. From; how to pick your niche, to; how to decide on your brand colours and font. By the end of this series your blog will be ready to add killer content!
Before you take any steps towards your own blog you must first figure out what to write about! This is called your niche. Think of a niche as a fancy way of saying topic or subject. Do you already have an idea?
Denoting or relating to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population.Niche Definition
Make sure you choose a topic that you absolutely love to write about. Don’t forget you will be spending hours blogging on this topic. Once you have decided on a niche, think about taking it a step farther and make it even more specialized!
For example: If your niche is knitting, maybe write about children patterns.
The more you niche down the easier your blog will be to market and easier for you to stand out in the crowd.
You Have Your Niche-Now Specialize
Sit down and really think about your passions, write down a couple. Then list what you love about each.
Now you have your niche and you have also narrowed your niche down!
All you have to do is make a choice and don’t forget to do some research! Type your chosen topic into Pinterest and see your competition!
Do you have a broad niche?
A niche may not become that obvious to you right away and that’s ok too. Sometimes you have to get a feel for your audience and what they want before you niche down.
I personally have a lifestyle blog. I haven’t decided on my niche down topic yet so my tagline is life, love and money.
As I have been talking to my readers, they have had multiple blogging questions so my posts have been catering to them. Of course, I plan on working on other posts topics to keep it interesting for my readers and myself!
And you can do the same. There are no rules to blogging but I’m here to make it a little easier!
