So...what is a niche? According to Dictionary.com, a niche is "having a specific appeal". In essence, this is the point of your blog.
Here are some questions to get you started figuring out what it is.
1. What are you passionate about?
Do you like writing stories? Cooking? Fashion? DIY? Sewing? Lifestyle? Fitness? (More possibilities here) A combination of a few things? Write about what you love and make it passionate. It will show through your writing and make people want to read it.
2. Will you still be passionate about this topic in the future?It's going to take a little while to grow an audience. You want to make sure that you will stay interested and passionate about this topic for a while to grow your audience. In addition, if you are going to spend hours designing and writing on your blog, why would you want to throw it away in a year or two?
3. How will your blog be unique from others in the same niche?There are a TON of blogs in the same niche as you. (Seriously. Anyone can start a blog who has an email and Internet access.) I bet I follow at LEAST 50 other writing blogs. There are even more than that too! According to Google, as of September 2014, there are over 1 billion websites. That's pretty much 1 website for every 7 people. Can you believe that? With so many websites people can go to, you HAVE to make yours stand out.
