I haven’t really thought a personal blog could be a niche blog. Seemed there was just too much to pack into or nail down to become a niche. I was wrong.
I read a post from Lorelle who has become famous (at least to me) for her posts about WordPress. She posted about her cousin’s personal blog as part of a series about personal blogs. Lorelle says her cousin, Duke, has the example of a perfect personal blog. Not to my thinking as I’m not a fan of any blog with a black background, but there is something to be learned from Duke’s blog. It fills a niche, nicely. Read the description of his blog, that’s where the niche gets nailed down and he slides right in. It’s very well done.
Duke, maybe with help from his cousin, has used his personality, his interests and become a niche blog. I bet it wasn’t done in a day. But, it was done and I think this really does show that any personal blog can become a niche, if we take some time to think and plan. Come up with a few lists about who you are and what you most like to post about. Even though there are thousands of Mommy Blogs there is something unique about yourself and your blog that you can find a niche too. I’m going to work on it for That Grrl, my own personal blog.
