Choosing a niche for your blog could be almost any subject imaginable, provided that it satisfies the following criteria:

1) It must be a subject which is of interest to people, an audience because these are the potential customers for your product or service.

2) It must be legal.

3) The subject must not be too broad, otherwise, the subject will not be of sufficient focus for your audience, and it will be difficult to promote because the audience is potentially too large, and there is too much competition.

Ok, the problem with me is that I have too many interests. I’ve been cracking my head to come up with a so-called specific niche for my new blog and I am actually thinking about mixing things up a bit here.

For example, can I do photography and outdoor living together? I love to travel and take pictures of the nature so I think it would be a great idea to show people how to do some cool stuff outdoors.

    Hi Cathy, I think your idea is a good one and is possible if you were to look on Facebook to select an audience based on those two sets of interests. I am not suggesting you have to use Facebook, only that i have used that method there to identify a specific niche (audience) using two parameters (interests). Alan

I usually go for my passions. It’s easier to write about some topics related to it. It will also be more natural towards your selected audience.
