It is a very inexpensive way of publishing your ideas, thoughts and opinions on subjects that you may have an interest in. Any passion of yours or something that is close at heart to you can become a blog niche for you. Examples are endless, but here are a few:
Traveling, hiking, food, health, religion, sports, gardening, infant and child development, tuition, pet care, racing, vintage cars, antiquary, art, fashion, crafts, beautician, jewellery, aviation, trains, historic events, music and the list goes on.
…ok, you get the point. Basically you can create a blog niche on any hobby, interest or passion you may have.

2. The joy of accomplishment & the fun of being creative.

Blogging on a subject allows you the joy of expressing your views on a topic and sharing it with others. One of the greatest satisfactions of mankind is the feeling of accomplishment. Your blog posts are your own creation. It can be fun to research and to put together content on something that you are passionate about. Once a post is completed and published, it will leave you with a great sense of accomplishment.

It may be that your interests and passions lean to a specific cause that you want to support. Examples can be political, social or environmental causes. Blogging allows you to make a difference and interact with similar minded readers.

4. Your blog content may be a solution to others.

When you share your knowledge, experiences and skills on your blog for others to read, your content may assist them to gain information on the topic, or even find solutions to problems that they are struggling with. Your views may be tuitional or inspiring to others who will then be likely to become followers of your blog publications.

5. Blogging allows you to share your knowledge.

Blogging is the ideal publishing medium to use for tutorial purposes. You may create a series of tutorials on a topic in blog format. (Remember that blog posts may include video clips, and many other media inserts.) The comment section allows readers to interact with you as the writer, but also with each other. Your blog-site will allow you as the owner to moderate the interaction to keep conversations on track and to the topic.

6. Networking and building relations.

It is very likely that you blog posts will attract others with similar interests. Interaction by others on your posts will expand your sphere of influence in the niche and it will help you to firstly establish relations with like-minded people and also to expand your network. For network marketers, blogging can serve as a very good list building and relations tool.

7. Establish authority.

As you expand your blog on a specific niche, you as a person will get more and more exposure out there in cyber space. When your publications are relevant, informative, accurate and published consistently, you will draw the attention as being knowledgeable in your niche. By being persistent in publishing quality content, you will gradually earn recognition as an authoritative author on the topic. Once authority is established, you will find that with it, comes “quality” in your followers.

    I think your article on blogging hits the nail right on the head, I routinely go to blog sites to find information on subjects I have an interest in, and I blog myself about woodworking and woodworking tools. Good article!

      Thanks for your comment Bob, much appreciated.
      Blog sites are indeed a very useful source on information.
      Not so long ago, all the information was locked inside libraries, now everything is so conveniently shared in blog posts.
      All the best to you on your journey.
