Howdy readers today I am going to show you how to find a perfect blog niche in 2019, You must wonder how to start a blog in 2019. What the heck do I blog about? Finding a topic for your blog can be a challenge for sure in 2019 because blogging is getting difficult day by day.!
Not that difficult. I’ll show you how I found my perfect niche for blog Rawat Tech Help.
Before I tell you my way of finding your blogging niche (i.e., what you want to blog about),
There are three types of niches you can have:
- One Core Niche
How to find a profitable niche in 2019
You can blog about one core niche. This is called your blogging niche. This means, when people go to your blog, the visitors know exactly what your blog is about.
For example, when you go to Shoutmeloud you know that Harsh Aggarwal only blogs about blogging– that’s all.
When you go to Neil Patel you know that he only blog about digital marketing.
And when you go to Backlinko you will know that Brian’s blog is about SEO.
The benefits of blogging only one type of niche is:
Your topic defines you:
Just imagine someone on Facebook asking if they know of any food blogs and you post that Deliciously Ella is your go-to food blog. You’ve connected with Madhulika, and her story and you’ve defined her as THE person for food recipes.
Wouldn’t it be great if someone asked for a travel blog or Health blog or whatever else, and people recommend you?
Your niche helps show your credibility.
With a core niche, you are talking about one main topic, and it becomes clear you know your topic!
I’ve been talking about blogging, SEO, Technology Tips and Make Money online on my blog, and it’s been the last 6 months that I realize that my reach is growing and that more and more people are finding me because of my credibility.
This opens up the doors for roundups and collaborations.
It’s Always Easier to Find Your Audience.
By posting similar topics, a reader will stay on your blog to read your posts, sign up to your email list and follow you on social media. You are building a tribe of loyal followers. Every pro blogger in the world suggests that one should always core niche blogging.
It’s Always Easier to Monetize.
Out of all my blogs, my free legal advice blog is the easiest to monetize and has become the main business that makes me a little money.
2. Lifestyle Niche
So, I probably made a good case for starting a niche blog eh?
Lifestyle blogs center on a core theme and from that theme comes multiple topics. So for my lifestyle blog, I do blogging on a lot of topics because lifestyle covers it up.
For Smart Mom Idea blog topics are:
- About Money
- About Kids
- Organizing things
- Blogging etc.
For Imperfectly Perfect Mama, her blog topics are:
- For moms
- Make Money
- Organizing things
Why would someone want to start a lifestyle blog?
If You Can’t Figure Out Your Blog Niche, Having a Lifestyle Niche Will Show You everything. And if you cannot find your perfect niche, then it’s better to start with lifestyle.
I get emails from people that want to start a blog, and the number one challenge is figuring out what to blog about. So, you know what I say?
I tell them to pick a few blog topics around one central theme to make it easier. Usually, their email tells me enough of what they enjoy, and most of them talk about a lifestyle blog.
This is perfect. You can blog about lifestyle if you want. Or maybe you do traveling and health tips. Whatever it is, a lifestyle blog niche is a great first type of blog you can have.
And the great thing about starting a lifestyle blog is – after a few months of blogging – you will know your blog niche.
Your audience will resonate with one or two topics.
Here is more help on seeing if a Lifestyle niche is for you.
Pinterest Loves Lifestyle Niches
Pinterest is a visual search engine and eye candy for me! There are core niches on Pinterest that just do well, and all of them are a lifestyle type of niche.
And since Pinterest unrolled a new profile look, you can see each profile’s monthly engagement number. The higher the number, the more engagement their pins and profile receive. This shows that more people are viewing their pins.
And some of the highest numbers: lifestyle niches!
You Never Run Out of Ideas:
When you have a lifestyle blogging niche, you never really run out of ideas. Since you blog about multiple topics, you can lean into one topic for a while and then switch it up.
Or you can devote an entire month to one topic. Either way, you can pool from a lot of resources to help you come up with some blogging ideas.
3. Blog for One Demographic
Instead of focusing on blogging about one core topic or multiple topics, you blog about similar topics for one demographic.
When you really look at the content, you can see that it’s also a core type of niche too.
The demographic niche is all about your audience’s avatar.
And this audience is interested in monetizing their blog.
So I blog around that topic of blogging for money:

Three Questions to Ask Yourself
How to find the best blog niche in 2019
Now that we looked at three different niches, to find out what you want to blog about, ask yourself these three questions.
- What am I passionate about?
What is the one thing you’re passionate about in your life right now?
Since your blog is something you have to keep up with for many months and possibly years, you will want to ensure you wake up each morning excited about your blog.
And having that strong motivation – the why behind your blog – will protect you from losing your way.
2. Is there a need for my niche?
How do you find out if you need your blog?
The easy way to ask others! Hit up other bloggers you know or go on social media and see what others are talking about in your niche.
Another way to find out if you need your blog topic is if one other person wants to know about your topic, then you can blog about it.
Because if you want to blog for fun or as a creative way, then all you need is one other person that would enjoy your blog posts.
3. Can you monetize it?
If you want to earn an income with your blog, your blog topic – or your niche – needs to help other people with their problems.
This means providing blog posts that can answer their questions, smooth their transitions or solve a problem they are having.
