Something To Keep In Mind When Choosing A Niche For Your Blog

Written by George Manty  · March 1, 2007

I have been ill quite a bit the past two weeks and it has been a bit rough keeping up with my blogs. I am better now and feel fantastic.

What does this have to do with choosing a niche?

I can write posts way ahead of time on this blog and save them for a rainy day. But on many of our blogs this is not possible.

For instance, my wife Jill has a blog about American Idol. Last week they started narrowing down the top 24. It was three nights in a row of American Idol! Wednesday night, Jill was feeling really ill and just couldn’t write her normal review of the show, so she wrote this post explaining that she would write the review in the morning. Unfortunately, she was way too ill to write the review until a couple of hours before the airing of the first elimination round of American Idol Thursday night.

It would not have helped her at all to have a post saved about how much she liked Taylor Hicks new album, because it wasn’t what people were coming to her blog for on Wednesday night.

If you have a blog that covers the news it is much harder to take time off, unless you have a group blog.

When choosing the niche for your blog, it’s important to evaluate whether or not you want to be able to take a week off without losing momentum. This can be accomplished either by having a group blog (something I am considering for several of our blogs, including this one) OR by having a blog that is NOT closely tied into current events.
