I have had a lot of people ask me about making money online, so I have decided to do a series on work at home tips. While I frequently tell you about my MCA business, I also want to help you make money in other ways. MCA is an awesome business, but it isn’t for everyone. Some people enjoy affiliate marketing, reviewing products or simply blogging for money. In this first blog post, I want to talk about blogging and finding your blogging niche.
If you have considered starting a blog, but weren’t sure what to blog about, this post is for you. The first thing you need to do when starting a blog is to figure out what niche you fall into. So, let’s get started!
What Exactly is A Niche?
A niche is the term used to describe what your blog is going to talk about. What will the main topic of the blog be—for many people, this can be hard to figure out. While I share the wonders of MCA with all of you, my main niche is “work from home”. I chose this niche not only to advertise my MCA business but to help people who want to start a work from home career, but don’t know how. The niche you choose will depend on what you want to share with the world. The type of business you are running—if you are running a business. And, the things you are passionate about.

- Work at Home Ideas
The possibilities are truly endless; however, your niche needs to relate to something that you are truly interested in or you will become bored with blogging.
Before you choose your niche, think about what is important to you. Do you home school your children? Are you an avid crafter? Do you love Hollywood Gossip? Any of these topics would make a great niche blog.
I would suggest that you make a list of all of the things you enjoy or have an interest in—begin with the most important and work your way down. Think about each of these topics and ask yourself if you are going to be comfortable with writing about this topic on a weekly basis. If you aren’t, move on to another topic.
Once you have chosen your niche, it is time to research. Which we will talk about next time.
Question to all of my blogging friends. What niche do you write about?
