3 Smart Steps to Select Your Blogging Niche

Niche is a very important thing for any blogger. You cannot go about blogging on every subject there is, on earth. Your blog has to be focused and targeted to a particular niche audience. This is the only way to be able to reach out to people and help them in their problems while creating a unique identity for your blog in the Blogosphere.

Selecting a niche can get very complex at times, mostly because bloggers tend to over analyze resulting into delays and dropouts at this instance. I found the following strategy useful in terms of selecting a niche:

1. Choose a topic you think most about in your daily life.

People are devouring content like anything these days. All you need is a very specific set of things you can passionately write about, on a daily basis!

2. Chose a niche that people will emulate you for.

It takes a lot of hard and smart work to become an authority on any specific subject. However, once you become a respected voice in your field of interest, people will follow everything you do. You shouldn't underestimate the amount of efforts and interest in becoming an expert though. You will need to work day in and day out to become an expert or an efficient practitioner in your field of interest.

3. Chose a topic that you can blend different ideas and interests to generate posts on.
