There’s a rather obscure album by a guitarist named Duck Baker called “There’s Something for Everyone in America”. I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it came out in 1975 and that its cover is absolutely the next level.

Neither of these facts are particularly relevant to this article, but the title of the album is. This “there’s something for everyone” idea doesn’t just apply to America – and it has nothing to do with Lady Justice stabbing a tiger in the heart while Duck Baker casually watches and smiles from a nearby window.
No, this concept is relevant to niche blog topics as well. Everyone has something meaningful and interesting to them, and in many cases, those kinds of passions and pursuits can be channeled into well-designed, consistently maintained blog property.
Here we go into what to consider when choosing a niche blog topic and examine 50 potential blog niche ideas to choose from.
Here’s how to choose your niche blog topic
So what should you be blogging about? How do you end up with the topic that resonates with the readers the most and fulfills you in the long term? Well, first and foremost, you need to consider your areas of expertise.
Where are you an authority What can you talk about comfortably and convincingly? If you blog in a niche that you only halfway understand, readers will not be receptive to it. You want to hear from an expert – someone who can show they are qualified to provide advice or trustworthy opinions. But it doesn’t end there.
Writing a blog is a personal matter, so you need to write about something that has personal meaning. What do you like to write about? There needs to be a certain amount of joy and enthusiasm behind your blog.
Maintaining a blog takes a lot of work. It’s difficult to keep up these efforts if you don’t really enjoy what you’re writing about. You need to start your blog assuming it will take a while to get up and running.
You probably won’t be able to monetize your website or sell ad space right away, so you have to be there – in large part – for the love of sports.
Your niche needs to reflect your passion because you will likely be writing for a while to write. To attract an audience that is neither easy nor self-evident. If you’re not interested in your favorite topic, you are less inclined to highlight it.
