Blogging in Kenya
Finding your niche is absolutely crucial to the success of your blog, especially as a beginner. Finding “your niche” is a strategic decision. If you’re targeting a generic topic, you’re competing with huge (and, usually, corporate) competition. Honing in on a niche is about writing more in depth about a more focused topic (or range of topics) - and your passion can shine through.
- Business and entrepreneurship
- Making money online
- Production (soap production, paint production etc.)
- Home and living
- Health and wellbeing
- Food and recipes
- Affiliate / internet / email marketing
- Computers and electronics
- Cryptocurrency - this is getting big
- Religion / spirituality / philosophy
Choosing the right niche is key to your success in the world of blogging
