Niche Website Ideas for 2015 — 5 Comments

  1. I agree about choosing a niche that you are passionate about. I’m speaking from personal experience. Last year I was too excited in choosing a baby niche simply because I just became a father. I eventually got burned out, not only because of my adjustments of my fatherhood but because I decided on a niche in just a spur of the moment, it was like a “niche fling” actually. It was a tough lesson learned.

    • The baby niche is quite a popular one Glen.

      Passion is something that motivates a person to do a great job with their chosen niche. If you’re not passionate about a topic, you won’t be excited with what ever it is you are doing, and eventually lose interest. Even writing articles about the topic would just feel like a boring job.

      So it is very important to discover what you are really passionate about first before starting any kind of business.

  2. The steps for finding a niche are very helpful. I wish I had known them before I started my first website. It would have made the process much easier.
