Good niche for a 1st time blogger?

7 replies
Okay, so I scrapped my fitness blog all together and decided to start from scratch. Problem is I don't know what to write about or which niche I should choose. I was thinking fitness, and The good thing about it is, I've already written so much about it that there are so many good articles saved in my computer (which should have gone to that previous blog I already scrapped). To coincide with that, I have 15,000 followers on Pinterest and I would like to exploit that.

But if you were me, which niche should you choose if you were a novice blogger?

    I'd say start with a hobby. You just need to make sure it's a profitable one. The first niche I worked in was "learn Spanish." While it's not as big as some others, I was a Spanish major in college, so I already knew a lot about the products and could connect with my audience, so it was really easy to come up with content. I could basically just type from my head.

    In your case, it seems like you've already found your niche. It's massively popular, so there are tons of products you can promote (like Shaun T's Insanity - most popular exercise program of 2014 with tons of keywords) or something else you've used that gets search traffic. You already have content. Just go for it. In this whole "make money online" thing, implementation is how you learn.

    Good luck,
    Joey

      If thats your hobby, then go for it becase it works well on the long run when there is still some interest in you to fuel you to keep blogging .. otherwise it just dies off after the initial excitement.. write about something which you can take photos, blog and explore more..

    Start from where you are... from where you are strong at. I suggest you enhance your content and keep improving. Revive your fitness blog and network with other people in your niche. Promote venusfactor and truthaboutabs from clickbank. They are good source of affiliate income and their offer are hot selling!

    As with most things in life, you'll never know until you try

    Wish I could give you a better answer, but I can't (nobody can).

    Test out different markets in different ways and see which ones make you the most money. Trial and error should become your new best friend.

    Start a blog about airguns. I would if I had enough time on my hands.

    That's a mighty interesting word you chose to use there. Perhaps you misspoke, but if that is how you view this all, you ain't getting anywhere, no matter what niche you try to 'exploit'.

    Look, just having a blog make you zilch. Having a popular blog makes you zilch. It is nobody's fault here, but I loathe the word Blog, for I remember when they were Weblogs - pretty much people's personal diaries. Who the hell cares. I didn't. I thought they were as stupid as people Tweeting about how the hamburger they just had for lunch was Sooooo awesome OMG!!!!

    Who the hell cares, right? Well, there is a whole subculture of people caring about some of that stuff (think People magazine, TMZ, etc.), but nobody cares what the average Joe or Joette ate for lunch, or what they posted to their Web-log.

    To bring that back around, I see this notion thrown around here that blogging makes money. Like it is a 'method' or 'system'. No. It doesn't.

    Get any of that? You seem to be looking for niches to exploit with a blog. Those days are over, for the most part. You need to ask yourself this question:

    In what niche can I provide VALUE to people so that they actually want to spend some time on my site, trust me, and then do whatever my Call To Action is (i.e. subscribe to email, outright affilaite purchase from page, buy my service, etc.).

    And then, since that niche WILL have competition (some well established, probably), you gotta then figure out how to get eyes on that value.

    People lose perspective of the fact that ALL of this InterWebs Thang is still in its infancy. But it is maturing - and at a faster rate every year. Including the Internet Users (the people you want to exploit with a blog) with finite amounts of time and money, and QUALITY content pulling them in a bazillion directions.

    You need to start thinking about what you can PROVIDE for people, not exploit out of them, for those days, well, those day's days are numbered.
