Things to consider when choosing a blogging niche
Many beginners failed after a month or two because of selecting the wrong niche. It would help if you choose a niche based on your interest.
Here are some tips to help you choose a profitable niche:
1. Your knowledge and interest in niche
It isn’t necessary to be an expert in your niche, but you must have enough knowledge about the topic.
Don’t select a random topic just because it is trending. If you are not interested in a niche and you don’t have knowledge about it, then working on it makes no sense.
