Throughout my career as a blogger, I’ve started many blogs in many different niches.
I’ve lost count after my 6th or 7th blog but if I have to guess, I’d say I’ve started around blogs in 10 different niches or so.
I just couldn’t understand why I get so bored with my niche after a few weeks of blogging on the subject.
But finally, after leaving a long trail of abandoned blogs on the world wide web, I’ve finally learned how to pick niches that really work – and that’s what I’ve got for you today. read more

There is the only fact you should remember about your niche: it is not about boring topics, it is about boring content creators.
If you start crying about being cursed with such a “boring niche”, you are most likely do not know what to do to make it interesting for audience. And it is not a problem of the niche, it is your problem, isn’t it? The problem is your perception of this niche and your… laziness: you just do not think of what you, as a cool blogger and content marketer, can do to make this niche rock.
Are you constantly thinking of your niche being unpopular? Yes, who does actually care about coffee cups or car discs for example? read more

Hosting niche blogs is something I think we’ll be seeing more of, especially when the blog platforms are getting better and better with each release. We have previously covered Teens in Tech, the teens in love with tech blog host by 15 year old Daniel Brusilovsky, and then there’s Open Salon, taking a slightly different approach but at the same time being pretty niche since it looks to engage the Salon readers, certainly a crowd too.
WarhammerBlogs.com is another blog host going after a niche, this time people interested in everything Warhammer. So what is that? Well, it started like a table-top war game by Games Workshop, filled with Orcs and Elves and whatnot trying to kill each other. You would buy a bunch of lead figures, paint them, and then use the rules to bash other armies. Today it is a huge industry, with MMORPG heading for PC gamers, called Warhammer Online, and several spinoffs, like pen-and-paper role-playing games, books, and so on. read more
