When I won in Lainy’s contest, among the prizes that I received were two domain names courtesy of Ma Belle. I already registered the first one for a WP blog which I’ll be sharing with my mother until the time she gets used to WordPress and blogging (and if you’re wondering, it’s densonline.com) but I can’t decide a domain for the other one.
I’d like to go into niche blogging but the more I think about it, the more I can’t decide on what particular topic to focus on.
Criteria for Searching a Niche in Blogging
According to blogging authorities, you should choose a niche which you are passionate about. It has to be something that you won’t be tired of discussing and you really enjoy doing.
I have a problem in staying focused but, yes, I do have a lot of things that I like (that’s why I can’t stay focused on something, wink!). That will not be much of a trouble.
The second criteria in finding a niche in blogging is where the problem comes in because they said that you should blog about a topic wherein you have the knowledge or mastery of the subject. I like doing a lot of things but I feel like a jack of all trades, master of none. That’s a hard part!
Another factor to be considered in looking for a blogging niche is your purpose or reason for blogging. If you just want to express yourself or socialize with other bloggers, it would be easy to just set up a personal (mixed bag) blog. Since I’m already doing that here at Georyl.com, I’m aiming to set-up a new site that will be more commercialized (translation: should make more money online). What niche will bring in more online income opportunities?
My blogging friends, when you chose your domain names, did you already have a blog niche in mind? Were you compelled to include your keyword in your domain names?
Your inputs and suggestions are highly appreciated.
