It’s an old question right? … But before you even start your blogging journey , you need to ask yourself, should I blog about a niche where I can make a lot of money ? (something like insurance) or should I blog about something I’m really passionate about? ( like gardening).
Ok, you want to know my honest answer to this? Well, here it is…..It doesn’t really matter.
What? That didn’t really answer the question…did it? … Lol !! Nope, It didn’t. And the reason for that is because in my opinion this question is completely irrelevant.
There are Pro’s and Con’s to each and ultimately you need to decide the one which you think will be best for you.
Pro’s and Cons of choosing a “Money” niche
The Pro’s of blogging about a niche where there is a lot of money is the fact that you can make more money (obviously). Let’s say you decide to create a blog on insurance and monetize it with Adsense.
You are going to make a lot of money per click in the insurance niche than you will have in the gardening niche.
The Con of creating a blog in something that has the potential to make a lot of money is the fact that there is a good chance it will be boring.
I don’t know about you, but sitting down and writing content about insurance isn’t something that I would see myself excited about.
Pro’s and Con’s of choosing a “Passion” niche
The Pro’s of choosing a niche that you are passionate about is the fact that you will be able to get excited to write the content, it will actually be fun for you, and you will be able to easily engage with followers. On top of that, writing the content is going to be much easier since you probably know a lot about that niche, this means you can probably skip the research part and get straight to the writing part.
The biggest con about choosing a passion niche is the fact that you likely won’t make quiet as much money. However, I say that cautiously because there might actually be a lot of money in whatever niche that you are passionate about. For example, I know a lot of people are passionate about weight loss or muscle building, and making a heck of money.
The point of all this is that, you need to decide which is more important to you … Making as much money as you possibly can, even if you find it incredibly boring, … or sacrifice some money to actually be excited about work.
There is no no right or wrong answer to this.
And hey, maybe you are one of the lucky few (like me) who are actually passionate about a niche that has the potential to make a lot of a money … hahahaha LOL!!
