One of the most common questions asked by many newbie bloggers is “what type of niche they should select for their new blog ?” Creating a blog and writing few blog posts might be easy but sticking to your blog niche is not a child’s play. I have personally seen many bloggers who end up writing few blog posts and then jump over to next blogging niche.
Suppose, you have a blog in which you have written an article on “Top 10 Gadgets of 2016” and next day you start writing about “Relationship Goals”, and later jump to “Health Niche” and so on. Well, I want to tell you that random niche blog has their own difficulties and it becomes very difficult to target your readers.
