Rather than wasting time and resources on another ‘blogging’ blog, you should opt for niche blogging instead.
In this article, I give you some awesome niche blogging ideas to consider.
1) Green / Clean Technology
Environmental concerns like the harmful effects of pollution on the human race and survival issues are rising high. It is good time to start blogs on green and clean technology, talking about how clean technology methods like windmills and solar power can positively impact our Earth.
2) Wearable Gadgets
After Smartphones and tablets, wearable gadgets are getting quite popular with the masses. People are adopting technology like there is no tomorrow. A blog on wearable gadgets will have high ROI.
In the last couple of years, cryptocurrencies have become quote popular in the online markets. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Dogecoin are used by gamers and internet marketers to buy and sell goods and services. A news blog on cryptocurrency will be a good blogging niche.
4) ‘Stories that Matter’
There is no definite term to identify this apart from the fact that they appeal to people’s emotion. Blogs like ViralNova.com have millions of visitors and followers. They write stories that touch people’s emotion. Often, these are multi-category blogs featuring stories on science, technology, people, history, anomalies and more.
5) ‘How to’ Education
People are mad about ‘how to’ guides. Well, extend the ‘guide’ notion a bit and start a fully functional education site. You can feature in-depth guides on doing certain things or taking actions. For instance, subjects like ‘how to learn Chinese’ or ‘how to create software’ works well.
A blog on lifehacks like Lifehacker.com and ProductivityLiving.com is a good way to build a wide audience base. Everywhere, people are interested to learn about productivity tools and hacks which improve their lifestyle. A blog on lifehacks is certainly recommended.
7) EMD Blogging
