A little birdie told me you wanted to start your own blog! Well I’m glad you came to the party. I’m going to go in detail about how to start a blog using the WordPress platform. If you don’t know what that is, I’ll be explaining that to you in detail in the next post.
What’s your niche?
So, before you start a blog, I think it’s safe to say you need to figure out what you’re going to blog about, right? Well maybe yes and maybe no. I’m a new blogger myself and I’m also trying to figure out what my niche is! Well then, I’m going to blog about everything I love until I figure it out. Serial blogger on the loose!
If you have done your research online, the most successful bloggers tell you to figure out your niche and not to blog all over the place (like I plan to)! And you should take their advice if you already know exactly what you’re going to blog about.
I don’t know how many of you guys are new to the blogging world, but you will see the word niche a lot. And guess what? I found a perfect definition of niche (marketing)
Concentrating all marketing efforts on a small but specific and well defined segment of the population. Niches do not ‘exist‘ but are ‘created‘ by identifying needs, wants, and requirements that are being addressed poorly or not at all by other firms, and developing and delivering goods or services to satisfy them. As a strategy, niche marketing is aimed at being a big fish in a small pond instead of being a small fish in a big pond.
Like I said before, I’m still fumbling around to find my niche but I know I’ll get there! And you will too. Here are some ideas to get the wheels turning!
Now, just so you don’t misunderstand, these are not niches, these are just ideas to get you in the right direction toward finding a niche. For example, if you chose cooking, your niche could be cooking for people with diabetes. Do you kinda get the picture?
Anyhow, once you find your why, you’re ready to start your journey!
