Want to learn about niche blogs? I’ve got you covered.

I hear the following quite often, “I’m interested in blogging, but I don’t know where to start. What blog topic should I choose and will it make money?”

Does this sound like you? I think most people who start a blog begin with that question. I sure did!

Ahhh… Blogging… Who doesn’t love the idea of making great money while staying home in your pajamas? Or a coffee shop. That’s what I prefer. Or maybe you’d rather be a travel blogger and write while lounging on an exotic beach? Hmmmm… Maybe I’d rather be at the beach. 😉

What Is a Niche Blog?

Niche blogs are blogs that have a narrow focus. Some “niche down” even further into what’s known as a micro-niche blog. In our last post on the types of blogs, I used pet blogs and a pug blog. These fall into niche blogs and micro-niche blogs respectively.

Picking Your Blog Niche

I wasn’t sure what to write about when I first started blogging. It’s a hard decision and not one to be taken lightly like I did. Blogging takes a lot of work and you don’t want to waste your time by starting down the wrong path.

And by wasting time, I mean blogging about topics that have little to no potential for generating a great income. If you’re going to start blogging, you want more than pocket change. That’s what most bloggers earn… If they’re lucky! Why? They pick the wrong niche!

Let’s get you going in the right direction from the get-go. That starts with understanding the different types of blogs which we covered in our last post and blog niches which we cover in this three-part series.

This is the first post in a 3 part series on niche blogs. Be sure to check out the other two. And if you haven’t read the post covering the different types of blogs you should. You might need to start one of the other blog types and not a niche.

My first blog, How To Treat Heartburn, may still be up and earning money, but I could’ve made a much better choice.

Picking the right type of blog will make blogging easier, more enjoyable and far more profitable in a shorter period of time.

People from all walks of life and all ages are making great money blogging and you can too. Let’s go over the top money-making blog niches to see which ones interest you.

The 7 Best Broad Blog Niches

There are seven top blog niches that are broad in nature. These broad niches have the potential of bringing you the most money. So many sub-niches exist within each. Niching down and getting more focused is often best. These seven broad niches cover basic human needs.

What Do People Need?

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is often covered in psychology classes. Do you happen to remember studying this theory by Abraham Maslow?

The Maslow’s Hierarchy is typically shown in the shape of a pyramid with the largest and most fundamental of needs being at the bottom. I’ll list them in order from the bottom to the top.

  • Physiological needs like food, water, shelter, sleep, and sex.
  • Safety and security needs. These would include personal safety, emotional security, financial security, and physical well-being.
  • Social belonging needs which would cover the need for family, friends, and social groups like those found at work, school, and in sports, religious groups, and through involvement in various organizations.
  • Self-esteem needs like respect, recognition, status, and fame.
  • The need for self-actualization which involves reaching one’s full potential.
  • The need for transcendence which would be the need for something beyond oneself. A higher level of human consciousness or spirituality.

Were you drifting on me as we reached the end of that list? I wouldn’t blame you if you were.

The seven broad niches cover the needs we find in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. These niches are:

  1. Money
  2. Health and Fitness
  3. Food
  4. Beauty and Fashion
  5. Lifestyle
  6. Personal Development
  7. Spirituality

Start Broad then Narrow Down Your Niche

Now that you know the broad blog niches, what now?

You’ll probably need to narrow your niche.

Niching down will help you concentrate your efforts on the best audience for reaching your intended goal. For most of us, the intended goal is to make money but yours might be different. It might be fame or it might be to convert someone to your religious thought if you happen to choose a niche in spirituality.

If you have trouble narrowing down your niche, go ahead and start blogging. Watch what people respond to and provide more content on that subject as long as it’s moving you toward your intended goal.

Let’s look at some of the best niche ideas. These are the niches that have the potential to drive the most traffic and make the most money.
