Why Should You Blog In Your Niche?

toddler-boy-on-laptopHave you ever wondered why so many blogs fail or why other blog’s tend to stand out from the others?

Why do you think it is that some blogs lose their blog readers or why some blogs make money and others don’t?

If you are thinking on the same line that I am thinking then you are right.

Some blog owners fail to accomplish what they want because of not sticking to their niche. Now do you see where I am going with this post?

I hope you do. This article is just a bit of an eye-opener for those blog owners who haven’t been making money or wondering why their blog readers aren’t sticking around on their blog. When it comes to blogging inside a niche there are certain rules which you have to follow if you want your blog to be successful.

In this article I will be giving you some reasons why you should stick to the niche that your blog caters to.

Helps To Preserve Your Blog Readership

Lets say that you started your blog centering about weight loss but at the same time you love cats.

In your mind you think that blogging about cats on your weight loss tips blog would be a good idea. You love cats so much that it makes you want to share your tips about caring for your can on that blog.

Now do you think this is a good idea?

No it’s not.

This will help to kill the readership of your blog.

Readers will leave your blog because this is not what they expected from you. If your blog is about weight loss tips, golf tips or skateboarding then its best for you to always stick to that topic.

Your readers will be much happier if you did.

Less Stress On You When It Comes To Writing

For one thing that I know with blogging is that is that it takes lots of time if you really want to be successful.

So when it comes to blogging on a lot of niche then this will take up more time.

If you blog on a topic that you are a lot familiar with then it will be much easier for you when it comes to writing contents. When you know or have knowledge on a niche that you have created your blog on, then this makes writing easy.

You will be able to write articles easy because you are writing from what you already know.

But if you blog out of your niche then chances are you won’t have accurate knowledge about that topic and your readers will know that you don’t know what you were blogging about.

So blogging inside your niche makes writing articles much easier.

Hard To Target Everyone At The Same Time

When your blog focuses on more that one blogging niche then targeting everyone is harder to do.

If you try to target everyone needs or wants at the same time then this can make you fail at blogging. This is because the wants and needs of everyone is so far reach that you wouldn’t even know where to start.

Setting your focus on one niche and targeting just the people in your niche will be much easier.

When you go on forum communities, social media or networking site, you can go into the category or section that matches the niche of your blog so that you can target those people who are interested in your niche.

Targeting is even easier when you find blog’s in your niche as well. This will make blog commenting easier and also guest posting.

Good advice about the importance of blogging in the same topic always. If we change the topic of the blog for some reason, the regular readers who are interested in our earlier topic will find some other blogs and we will be the losers. Thank you for this post.

Hey Tom,

You are so right about that. Changing topics on our blog readers will cause us to fail on becoming a successful blogger. It is best to become an expert on the topic that we had started.

Thanks for the comment and all the best to you.

Hi Muhammad,

Thanks for appreciating my blog post pal and also commenting.

If you want to improve your English then you can do so by getting an English dictionary so that you can know the meaning of words. You can also read articles in English and practice writing in English.

You can also get friends on social media sites who speak English and chat with them on a regular basis.

I hope that helps you.

Gotta agree with ya – if you try and target everyone, you’re not going to connect with anyone. Pick a niche and start there – the niche you know best will be the easiest. But try to get HYPER focused. For example Design -> Web Design -> Responsive Web Design. Thanks for the post!

Hey Jeff,

Your point is awesome. That’s what I was trying to say in my blog post and your comment sums it up pretty well.

Once you create a blog on a niche/topic that you have knowledge about then this makes it easy for you to write articles on a regular. Also you can try to cover the other topics that goes hand-in-hand with your main niche.

Thanks for the comment pal.

Excellent post, (shared by a friend on Google +)

I use more than one blog to express myself, and each blog stays on a particular theme, such as Aquarium Keeping, or another about my life

Hey Steve,

I thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, reading and also leaving a comment.

Yes when you do that it helps to make each blog look neat and organized. It will also help to make each blog successful as well.

I love aquariums, I have built a few and love them so much. I am also thinking of making a site for aquariums and people who love them. You will know more if I do.

Thanks for the comment and all the best to you.

Hello Zaib,

You are so right and this is why sticking to your niche is so important. This helps you to write articles on topics that are familiar to you and also to your blog readers.

They will love your blog for that.

I don’t think it is harder to target. However, I agree with your point number one that having a clear cut image of your niche can make writing and overall blogging quite fun. Thanks for sharing this.

Hey Saqib,

It may not seem hard but when you do try to target every single person to your blog then you will realize it. It’s always best to create your blog and center around one topic so that your blog can be targeted by those who search for topics that your blog has.

Thanks for the comment.

That’s one of the best point is that you can attract or get all of them to your blog so don’t change your niche if you don’t get good traffic at the same time so you have to wait for it.
Thanks Kharim its really great post on niche.

Hey Wasim,

You are so right pal. In case your blog isn’t getting the traffic that you want changing the niche won’t work. You have to keep on working hard and promote your blog so that you can become successful.

Thanks for the comment pal.

I think that if you want to speak among so diferent themes you must do more than one blog and promote them amonst them, then the people really interested in the other themes that loves your way of writing can follow you in the other blog and you will not disturb you regular readers.

Hello Kharim,

The first thing which should consider while choosing a niche is how much knowledge we have on the niche. Secondly we need to research it and then we can easily produce article on that niche so that we can stick to it.

Hi Samir,

That point my friend is so true. Once you create a blog on a topic that you know and love then this will make blogging easy for you.

You will be able to deliver contents on a regular as well.

Thanks for the comment.

Definitely how can they find readers/clients if blogging out of the way! Simply they’re looking onto that particular blog because that’s what they needed!
