Blogging is not a chasing game. Some bloggers seek desperately for the most profitable niches of 2020 but you cannot chase profits because profits flee from people hunting profits. Money is shy and retiring. Money fears being hunted. Do you know how many bloggers will fall flat on their blogging face this year by trying to chase fast-moving, profitable blogging niches?
Niches do not make blogging profits. Skilled, experienced, seasoned bloggers make blogging profits. Any skilled blogger who reads this title knows the post applies not to them. Skilled bloggers profit through any niche because it is their skills, not the niche, yielding profits. Why? If 1 person seems interested in a niche and if 7.53 billion people live on planet earth, enough folks will be interested in the niche to make it profitable, save the rarest of rare cases.
But chasing money before you develop sufficient skills to make money proves futile. No blogger earns coin before earning the right to earn coin by spending hundreds to thousands of hours learning blogging, practicing your writing, creating content and connecting with niche leaders by helping them and asking for nothing in return. Do these things; you will succeed. But if you avoid doing these things you cannot develop the skills necessary to net profits in any blogging niche. Bloggers try to make money by capitalizing on niches spitting out the highest profits but the blogger, not the niche, makes the money. Imagine never picking up a hammer in your life. You have zero home improvement skills. A carpenter buddy of yours claims carpentry is quite profitable; he makes $100,000 a year. Sounds good to you, right? So you dive into carpentry but have no idea how to use the hammer, let alone, how to measure and cut plywood, or how to do anything required of being a skilled, successful carpenter.
Genuinely, guys, the money is never in the blogging niche itself because people buy stuff through your blog if they trust YOU. Meaning, you better be highly skilled by practicing, creating and connecting for years, or else you will not make a penny through any niche, whether fast-moving or slow-moving. The niche makes no difference if you do not develop your blogging skills sufficiently, through diligent practice. Put in the time. Make an effort. Gain credibility by practicing your writing. True, some niches seems to move faster than others but it is the blogger, not the blog or the niche, that makes money. Niches or specialties may seem to be in demand but the blogger who works the niche skillfully actually makes this money. This is why most bloggers flame out working fast-moving, profitable niches. Most bloggers have zero skills. Having zero skills, you look like a clown, an absolute shill, any time you write and publish posts because you have nothing of value to offer; you’re just trying to make money, and fail miserably because people can see through you and your shame a million miles away.
Put in the time, blog in a niche you feel passionate about and most of all, stop niche hopping. Stop going from 1 niche to the next because you lose credibility each time you jump from profitable niche to niche every few months.
