Interest

Write down the list of all your interesting topics for a niche blog. It can be technology, life, personal or relationship, you need to select the one that you love to talk about and share the information about. Blogging is all about love, passion and sharing knowledge. If you are not writing articles of your interest, then it would be tough to gain more knowledge and share it effectively with your readers.

Consider future

Blogging is an ongoing process, and you need to be innovative and unique to get successful. You need to update your blog frequently and thus before selecting the niche for your blog, think how long you can come up with quality articles and what is the future of niche you have selected?
