31 Blogging lessons 1.

I’m thinking I’m either going to do 2 posts either today or tomorrow. I haven’t decided which day yet.
Today I’m going to address niches. A lot of blogs get started because people think they’re going to make lots of money, (or at least, that was my theory when I first started, hah!) Some people do make enough money to make a good living. However, it’s easy to get tired of writing and/or have your ideas dry up.
The topics I’ve picked to write about are all something I’m interested in. Blogging about blogging has been something I’ve wanted to do for a while. However, I didn’t want to give the same advice that everyone else gives. Of course that advice says that you have to pick an extremely narrow niche and write about it. Hopefully after 6-8 months or so of experimenting with different ad placements etc, you’ll start to have some success.
I think the main lesson I’ve learned from 15 years of blogging, is that you can write about anything. That is of course if you’re doing it for fun first and foremost. Only after that should you worry about money. For some people, that’s not really the goal of blogging. For instance, I write a personal blog. I write about all sorts of things. Most would say it’s too broadly focused, so I probably wouldn’t have much success with that one.

  1. Niche blogging was always a mistake for me way back when. I would start a niche blog and find it too confining subject wise. A general blog works best for me since I tend to blurt out whatever is on my mind.

    I do enjoy many niche blogs and find they can be very useful.

    1. Oh don’t get me wrong, niche blogs are fun to read. Well depending on the niche I suppose hah. I enjoy a lot of tech-related blogs, for instance. They can be hard to write after a while though.
