Almost didn’t make it, but I decided to move on with my case study every day and that’s what I’ll do, right?
Starting our case study, what’s the first thing we have to do?
Of course, to find our niche! So today, we’re brainstorming for potential niches.
What is a niche?
Niche is an audience. In our case, the main audience of the blog.
For example, if you want to write about basketball, your audience will be people who like basketball or people who want to start playing basketball.
Usually, instead of saying that my niche is people interested in basketball, we just say that my niche is basketball, cool?
Don’t start thinking if what you want to blog about is popular and trendy, old and boorish, weird, common, easy to write about, or if you know a lot about it. Just start writing things you like talking about.
If you don’t have any ideas, you may check out a list I wrote with niche ideas for blogging, but I would really prefer if you wrote your own. As I will do right now.
Things I like:
- Journals: I love notebooks – and all the other school stuff my parents had to buy every September – but journals have a special place in my heart since I started keeping a journal daily. (At least, I’m trying to. I don’t always succeed, but that’s a topic for another day.)
- Watches: I don’t know why, but watches are the only jewellery I actually enjoy looking when I pass by a jewellery store. So it goes on the list.
- Office desk accessories: “Organisers, gadgets, anything you can see on an office desk and say: “Cool! Where did you get it from?”, I like it.
- Subscription boxes for writers: I saw a video of a woman unboxing one a few weeks ago and I liked it. I wouldn’t mind a subscription to one of these.
- Laptops/Tablets for kids: This is something I’m so and so about. I used to have a laptop as a kid, but it was a toy with a small screen with a few pixels, like the one from Tetris. Still, I loved it – and I’m pretty sure I have it somewhere with other stuff from that age.
I’m not a big fan of kids having access to electronic devices at a young age, but since a lot of parents get them for their kids, I might as well find the best ones to recommend to them.
- Astronomy: I really like astronomy, even though I didn’t have the chance to learn a lot about it so far. But it’d be a nice idea to start something about this. Maybe cameras for astrophotography or telescopes? We’ll see!
