Ask any blogger who’s been at it a while and I’m sure they’ll all tell you they have something on the back burner. We all do. But we’re also smart enough to know that we’d have to take time away from our business if we want to start something new.
We remember how much time it takes to get a new blog off the ground. Anyway, here are three niches I would get into if I only had the time.
Local Business Network
There are so many small businesses out there that would benefit from a website but they don’t know how to do it or they can’t afford to hire someone to do it for them. And most only need a page or two so it’s not really worth the expense.
I’ve had this idea in the back of my mind now and just haven’t had time to sit down and map it out. But I envision a blog about local news, like covering the Farmer’s Market, the Town Council meetings and the next big neighborhood yard sale.
And then I’d allow small business to have their own page to promote their products and services. The SEO from the blog would bring in traffic and the blog would help promote those local small businesses.
How To Build An Online Writing Business
I’ve seen blogs that tell you how to use Elance to find freelance assignments or how to get yourself hired on as a blogger, or how to make money with Fiverr, but those are just temporary gigs and you’re relying on someone else for your paycheck.
There’s so much you can do to put together your own online writing business, where you don’t have to rely on clients or gigs. I’ve never seen one single blog that pulls it all together. I know it would be a huge undertaking but someday….
The Next Presidential Election
Normally I’d say politics is a pretty saturated niche but if you’re willing to work hard and you have the time I think you could make a name for yourself well before the next election. And if you could get to the election your audience would only continue to grow.
Then it would start all over again and by the time the next elections rolled around you’d be a hell of a force to reckon with. Of course, you’d have to really be interested in politics and you’d really have to know your stuff. This is one niche where you definitely can’t fake it.
