First you Need to decide what your blog will be about or focus on your heart desired target of skill. Yes you can start your blog talking about anything and everything. However, these types of blogs aren’t often as successful or grow fast.
Do you know people search the Internet for one reason only to solve a problem?
Ok let’s talk about blogging issues, in the year 2005 we had less blogging tutorial blog here in Nigeria but geekng was the only famous tutorial blog then but today the story is different but the ranking still remains
That problem people are seeking for!! is not just a problem from a blog with random topics but a blog with a targeted niche just like blogging tutorials, Android updates and many more.
That’s why niche blogs are popular. For instance, if you want to stay up-to-date on fashion trends, you’ll follow fashion blogs because you trust that they’ll continuously solve your problem.
The successful part of a niche blog is that it narrows your target audience, but it also keeps them coming back for more solutions.
How exactly do you “find your niche?” Check out these tips below.
Select Something You Know about and Addicted to.
As you can see the first thing you need to put in mind before starting a blog is that you need to write about what you know best like phone repair, hair dressing, photography and many more.
When you blog about what you’re passionate about, several things happen⬇
- You need to put more time and effort into your blog to make it gain more audience and also increase in page tank
- Let your passion for blogging never cease. You need to make your blog in such a way that it can Stan without daily updates.
- It shows through in your writing, and your readers can feel that. This, in turn, will lead to a larger following.
You don’t just rush into educational blogging just because of the massive traffic in it for the benefit of your adsense earnings which is bad.
You need to think about what if I am to be interviewed what are your going sy about your copy and pasting which is wrong..
Having the passion is a factor that keeps you moving even when you fail in blogging sphere, below are some little questions i will like to ask you.
- What are your hobbies?
- How do you spend your free time?
- What types of classes did you enjoy in high school or college?
- What do you enjoy reading and learning about?
Find a Hole in the Market
The truth is that no matter what topic you choose to write about, there is already a blog or million out there in that niche. However, not everyone has explored every nick and cranny of every niche. That’s where the profitability can come in.
You can narrow your niche in the same way by adjusting your target audience to those who rarely get attention, such as novice versus advanced individuals in your industry. Another option is to focus on a certain geographical area.
Remember, however, that there must be a need in that end of the market.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to stick with your first blog and its niche if you’re feeling burnt out. However, taking the time to explore which niche you want to start in can save you a lot of time and money in the future instead of jumping from niche to niche.
The biggest thing that will help you choose the right niche is to really think about it instead of jumping in head-first with no idea.

Influencing Your Niche
First you have a niche but your own style or pattern is different and also your content should be readable for viewers.
The niche you want to start should be a niche that is less competitive, you need to look different from others and also your content has to be unique with new discovery in the blogging sphere.
you can join forums like Nairaland, digitalpoint, and also you can join blog comments interaction like zealmatblog, Primesong.com, shelaf and many more.
Now I believe, you will start to position yourself to make some money from your passion. As I wrote in my article Advice for Making Money with Your Blog Using Adblabla, if you have a product (via your blog) or are representing a business niche, it is easier to sell that product or specific niche to advertisers. Advertisers know who they want to reach and if your product or business is complementary, then they see the value of advertising with you more readily than they would if you were just a blogger without focus.
