Whether we blog in a tight niche or under the umbrella of a wider one, for some reason we have chosen to write about a specific topic(s).
Being an analytical person, it always intrigues me when I see an author blogging on a subject (or variety of subjects). I ask, “Why did they choose that niche”?
When I started blogging, I carefully picked the subject of my first blog. The process started with me wanting to use my “years” as a teaching tool to help others via what I had learned and observed. I wanted to write unbiased unpaid product reviews on things I use that work well, save time and/or money. I also wanted to share money and time saving tips with my readers. Mixed with these subjects would be observations about life issues that have an affect on our daily lives. I wanted to teach my readers to be informed consumers and to ask questions.
Based on that, I started my Observation Mountain blog.
Blogging Without A Blog (BWAB) was born from pages and pages of notes I was taking as I learned how to blog. Although it wasn’t meant to be a blog that would take up too much of my time, the tides turned and this is now my primary blog.
So in a sense, this blog picked me.
What about you?
Think back to before you started blogging. Why did you decide to blog on the subject(s) you write about?
As time has passed, do you find your “niche” is changing and a new topic is emerging?
Feel free to join in the discussion and share why you’re blogging on your topic of choice. If you’re not a blogger (yet), what subject would you choose to blog about? I’m curious to hear your answers.
