    After creating a blog, your next questions should probably look like these:

    • What's the purpose of my blog?
    • Why I'm I blogging?
    • What blogging niche do people love best?
    • Which niche will bring more money and traffics to my blog?
    • How can I build audience with my niche?
    • And many more related questions.

    You know what, selecting or choosing the best niche for your blog firmly based on your passion. How passionate are you about the niche you are about to write on? How much do you love what you want to blog about? Because "MR Ajayi" is blogging about entertainment and he is making it big, you too want to join the league. You may fail.

    The plain fact is that, all niches are good and they all bring solid income and members. Just that some niche are not popular, while some are popular, but you can make it popular and gain authority over it.

    The main important thing required is that, how passionate are you about the niche. Can you write topics on the niche without copying someone else's work? Can you answer your members questions without querying Google? If you can do all these, that means you can gather all members that loves that niche around the world.

    Looking for a blog perfect niche, is like finding your inner talent. Well, it can be a daunting and onerous task at first, but as time goes on, if the niche is relevant enough, you will see success.

    Examples of Niche

    • Technology
    • Entertainment
    • Religion
    • Travel
    • Religion
    • Beauty
    • And many more.

    Examples In Finding A Niche For Your Blog

    Assuming you decide to go for technology blog, you should note that there are many niches inside technology because technology is the general name. There are:

    Tutorial Tech Niche: This type of technology blog, mainly focuses in providing complete tutorial on how to solve a problem. For a person to select this niche, you need to have a complete knowledge of what you are writing about. You don't have to update frequently, because you have to make research and put more energy in one article. Moreover, you can make a lot of money from this niche but is slow to grow members.

    Review Tech Niche: In this niche, you have to be writing about products, like mobile phone, laptop, antivirus, and many reviews about gadgets and other appliances that relates to technology. You need to have sound knowledge about the product you are reviewing in order to entice your members to the post. You can make a whole lot of money from this niche.

    News Tech Niche: This technology niche, requires your blog to be an early tech news breaker. You have to update frequently in order to gain authority, and your contents needs to be unique. Members also love this type of tech blog niche.

    What Can I Do To Find My Perfect Niche?

    • What do you love to do most? What were you known for in school or in organizations? Pick a topic you love most. Assuming, you love to fix people's phones in real life, you can start fixing phones from your blog. Since you love the topic, you won't lose interest on it.

    • Second step is that, you should make sure the niche you choose is profitable in order to enable you earn good income. You cannot just wake up and say, you want to blog about "pampers". Hey! Do you want to read your blog by yourself? Lolzzz.

    • Third step is to check the competition. How many bloggers are already on the niche. If people are too many on the niche, and you see that you can't outrank them or you don't have enough money or resources for advertisement and others, kindly choose another niche that has smaller competition. Otherwise, you might regret. You will spend money, and waste your time in vain.

    Now that you've find your perfect niche, you should start writing exceptional and quality articles that will attract members or audience that love that niche. Do not copy contents or articles from other blogs, be unique in everything. Those quality articles, will make you stand out among your competitors. How want to read what they have read on another blog? Is will rather stick to the blog that provide the article first.

    It may take a while before people will start recognizing your blog for that niche, do not hurry, be patient, try to drive traffics to the blog.

    Conclusion

    . I can't predict what you love most because is only you that loves that, I can only give you a verified and empirical suggestions on what will make you succeed after finding your best niche.

    I earlier promised to kickstart a program where I will be able to lecture young minds who are ready to start a blog. The main purpose of the program was to help them know, comprehend and get acquainted on every details in running a quality blog that will fetch massive income on daily basis, depending on their perseverance and consistency.

    Now, I have successfully launched the program, and few people turned out and I believe as we proceed, more people will turn out and join the program to benefit. Your support is however needed to make people get aware of this program. Sharing this article to your friends on social media and families is enough.

    However, before you start a blog, your first plan is to find a good and suitable platform, where you will be able to run your blog effectively. There are numerous platforms out there but I will list the most effective and quality platforms that will hold your blog forever without going extinct.

    7tvlvjkfzmnk1zlh.png


    1. BLOGGER - This platform is owned by Google. It's totally free to run your blog on this platform, as in, you don't have to pay for anything or resources you use. The platform is recommended for a newbie who want to learn blogging.

    Advantages of Blogger

    • All resources are totally free.
    • It's highly secured and protected by Google. You don't have to worry about protecting your blog or managing your sever.
    • All features are simple and easy to use.

    Disadvantages of using Blogger

    • It's services are owned by Google. If you violate their policies, your blog might be deleted without your notice. So, you don't own your blog.
    • You only perform limited tasks on blogger. You cannot extend your limit to create a full fledged website of any type.
    • Templates are limited as well. Non-official blogger templates are also available but are of low quality and are not professional.
    • You cannot upload music, games, and PDF files to it, but you can upload videos and photos.

    NOTE: If you don't have money to pay for hosting space, you can decide to use this platform to start a blog, but kindly note that it's services are limited.

    2. WORDPRESS: This platform is highly recommended for those who want to pay for what they need. The software is free but you have to pay for the host. There are lots of hosting providers who are willing to provide room for you to host the WordPress software for a token.

    Basically, you have to pay for the resources you are using, such as: hosting space, memory, uploads and other things, depending on the hosting plan you are using.

    Advantages of WordPress

    • You own your website and you have the right to do anything you wish. You can decide to upload anything on the website without thinking twice.
    • There are a lot of plugins (already made tools) that will help you setup your website without touching unnecessary codes.
    • You can extend your blog limit by adding a forum, or adding e-commerce. You can decide to design it as you like. It doesn't have limit. You decide the limit.
    • There are beautiful free and paid templates that will give your website a premium and professional look.
    • You can decide to import your contents to another platform easily on the platform without loosing your SEO and other things that will run down your blog.
    • You can upload any type of file on the platform, like music, videos, games, and any multimedia files.
    • You have all the supports you need.

    Disadvantages of WordPress

    • It's quite secured, but you are responsible for backups and server maintenance. If you're careless to do this, it can provide a loop for hackers to knock down your website. Though, plugins are available to help you do those basic stuffs.
    • It's expensive to run and manage.

    3. GHOST - This platform is like WordPress, I will call it "Semi-Wordpress" but it's made of node.js, which made the speed extra ordinary. You can start a blog on the platform but you cannot run a full website features on it. It's also expensive to run.

    Conclusion

    These are the three quality website platforms that I highly recommend for both upcoming and advanced bloggers to use for their website. They will provide you with all the support and services you need to start and run your blog effectively.
