Before starting a blog, you need to have proper planning and strategy. I would suggest you that when you want to plan to decide the niche for your blog, note down all pros and cons for all the points given below. This will help you to select the niche for your blog properly, and you will be prepared for advantages and disadvantages of that niche that you might face while setting up your niche blog.

Five tips to consider before selecting niche for your blog:


Write down the list of all your interesting topics for a niche blog. It can be technology, life, personal or relationship, you need to select the one that you love to talk about and share the information about. Blogging is all about love, passion and sharing knowledge. If you are not writing articles of your interest, then it would be tough to gain more knowledge and share it effectively with your readers.

Consider future

Blogging is an ongoing process, and you need to be innovative and unique to get successful. You need to update your blog frequently and thus before selecting the niche for your blog, think how long you can come up with quality articles and what is the future of niche you have selected? Don’t choose a niche for your blog that you can’t run for more than one year and don’t think for a successful future.


When it comes to starting a blog and promote it to drive traffic, then only your interest won’t work. If you want your blog to get successful, you need to select the topic that even you like and the topic is popular in blogosphere also. Check out what kind of niche blogs are trending and people find interesting to search. You can use keywords tools or Google trends to find out that what kind of search is highest for any specific niche.


Sometimes you need to be smart and select the niche that has less competition in blogosphere, this will help you to create your identity fast as compared to another niche that already have thousands of blogs and tough to stand in front of successful bloggers. To find the competitors of the niche you want to select, just Google the topics of your niche and you will find what kind of competitors you will have to face while you will start with blogging.


Niche blogging is best way to make money online but before selecting the right niche, you must check out that is it worth for earning income or not? Use search engines to find out that how many advertising networks are providing ads relevant to your blog niche or how much chances are available to choose the profitable affiliate programs?

    Great article, the last time I tried choosing a niche with a money making mindset, i got confused and was very lazy with crafting content for that niche, but when i decided to after my passion, i can see myself trying to always find an argumentative and interesting topic for which i also have interest in. This has made crafting of content smooth and sweet for me.

    I think passion should first come over money.

  14. Techno-Pulse

    I started with a tech-blog & gradually I focussed on Cloud Computing…Finally my blog has found its niche in Cloud Computing. Attimes we don’t know in the beginning about the market & interest. So, for newbies it’s always good to select a domain name which covers a wider range of topics…

    1. Ruchi

      It happened same with me Techno-Pulse. Later on I discovered that technology and relationships are two interest about which I can write with passion and interest. Choosing nice comes from your heart after experiencing few different topics.
