When choosing a niche that fits you, you should be choosing something that is ideally an interest, a passion, a hobby, but it could be something that you would like to learn about.
You don’t need to be an expert, you become an expert as your knowledge grows and so you need to find your blogging niche so you can start your website.
I personally enjoy many different things. I enjoy watching movies, I used to collect DVD’s, I like to reading movie magazines, I am really interested in men’s fashion, exercise, internet marketing, and I love everything about the online business world.
There are also many niches over the years that I have been very successful within without knowing anything about them before getting into them. Blogging, collecting comics,…are just a few.
Almost anything you can think of is a niche and that is why I am going to get you to choose your niche based on things that you are interested in. You can earn money online from absolutely every single niche because there are billions of people out there searching for information, for solutions, and spending billions of dollars or products/services every day.
Where to find your blogging niche can be a little confusing at first, so I have created this post that is going to walk you through what a niche is, how you earn money through a niche, and I will get you choosing your initial direction niche.
Your online business should not feel like a day job. Earning money online should be fun, and it is fun. This all starts with choosing a niche that you are interested in and will enjoy working with.
The more you enjoy doing something the less it feels like a job and the more productive you are going to be. I am immensely passionate about online business and teaching people how to make money online, so that people can work from home and earn a decent living.
Your niche could be anything, but at the core of your niche selection it should be something that you “like”.
- Something you enjoy.
- Something you can talk about.
- Something you want to learn about.
Understanding Your Niche Direction
A few things that you should understand about niches are:
(1) You are going to be writing content within your niche
(2) You are going to be communicating within your niche
(3) You are going to be choosing products to promote within your niche
(4) You are going to get to help people within your niche.
(5) Your first niche probably won’t be your last (so don’t worry about it being perfect)
(6) Any single niche website can become a “full time” income/business
How To Find Your Blogging Niche – Getting Started
To help you better figure out what niche you want to choose if you are having difficulty is you want to choose a topic you are passionate about. You do not need to know a whole lot of information about the topic, you can always do research on the topic just be sure you are putting the content into your own words. Never copy exact words from other bloggers!
If you do not choose a niche you have interest in then you may not have enough desire to work hard at creating your website. I love helping people and I love the idea of earning money online so I created a site about earning money online and I narrowed it down to “making money online from home.”
- What are you passionate about?
- What do you like to do?
- Do you enjoy helping others as well?
If you enjoy helping others then you shall be able to create a great website too. There is no wrong niche, there are thousands of niches that you can use. Always remember that when people are online they are constantly searching for information. You create a website full of valuable information that people are looking for then you will do great. Below I have narrowed it down more to 8 Steps To Find Your Blogging Niche.
Where to Find Your Blogging Niche – 8 Steps
1.Passion Niche Business
Maybe you would like to develop a business around a hobby, issue, passion or industry. Start looking at your own personal interests, hobbies, expertise, a “calling” for you, a message you feel you need to share, a business area where you have special expertise or maybe you have an important cause to promote.
List your strengths and interests and that you have some knowledge about. Choose a topic that you are still motivated to learn about. This is a journey and so you want to be still blogging 6 months or one year from now.
Write down the strengths you possess, but include any topics you would love to learn about as well.
2.People Niche Business
What type of people do you spend your time with? If you build your own lifestyle business serving them you will get even more time together, start looking at your own background, education, family history or hobbies to figure out the people that you would like to work with more.
Just about any interest that you share with other people can be the basis of your business audience online. Who are the people you would like to help?
3.Problem Niche Business
Look at the needs, inconveniences, and problems you see in your own life. Wherever there’s a problem, there is a need for solutions that your online business may be able to make money solving other people’s problems. You can start by identifying customer problems, then you would start providing the solutions. Is there a way you can help people make life easier?
4.Product Niche Business
Think about your own business or life to find a product that deserves a wider audience. You might be inspired to create your own product. Perhaps you have products or services or information available already that you can market.
5.Use Keyword Niche Finder
To get ideas for your blogging niche try using an online niche research tool, such as Wordstream’s free Keyword Niche Finder.
It gives you 30 free searches, so that should be enough to get you going:
Type in your main or ‘head’ keyword and then just go through the long tail variations until you find a likely niche:

6.Use Pinterest To Source out Your Niche
Go and visit Pinterest and look for topics that stand out to you and that are attracted to. Look at this example on cooking tips:
This is a great site, similar to Pinterest where you can see posts. Again, look for what strikes your cord and that you are attracted to.
8.Whats Hot Weekly
If you are interested in promoting or writing about products then I came across this site that shows you the top 1000 products on eBay. You type in your keyword and it shows you the results. A good tool. http://whats-hot-weekly.com/
Here is an example on pet supplies I searched for.:
There is No Such Thing As Choosing the Wrong Niche
When starting out, note that you can always change your niche down the road. Just because you are choosing a niche now does not mean you will be in this particular niche forever.
My advise to anyone is, please do not spend a week choosing your niche. Within the next one week (maximum) you should have your “starting point” niche chosen.
Your niche determines each post you write, your audience, and the purpose behind your blog. This step is foundational to your blog, so spend some time thoughtfully mapping it out.
Look At These Niche Areas
I have listed below some ideas that may help you choose your niche.
- How To Cure Insomnia

The list can go on and on. I hope that this can help you get started and you can drill down further into a topic that you like. What you can do is start by typing each one of the topics into your browser to find out if you have hit on a niche which will serve you the best!
You now know where to find your blogging niche and have enough ideas to get started. Hopefully you have a list of 3 or 4 topics now that you would enjoy writing about.
What you then do is to narrow this down to your most favorite topic and this will be the start to your blogging career. Keep the other ideas listed as these may form you’re your next few blogging niche sites later down the road.
If you are still having trouble to narrow down your list down to one then ask yourself these final questions about each topic to determine which one(s) will be the best for you:
- Are you passionate about this topic?
- How many other people are blogging about this topic?
- Is the niche saturated?
- Is this topic solving a problem?
- Would readers find a benefit in reading your blog?

Just also remember that readers like to be entertained and so you need to be passionate around the niche. Good luck in finding your blogging niche.
