    Best blogs niches?

    I was just wondering, what are the best blogs niches these days (by best I mean most popular)? I'm not a blogger myself and don't really know much about blogging.

    People blog about every subject under the sun

    True bloggers don't worry about what's popular or "in vogue", they simply blog about things that interest themelves because that's what they love doing.

    Most newbie bloggers have to start with general topics. And some stay that way and doing really good at it. But supposed you are into venturing health products then better stay on topic and become an authority with it and promote readership.

    When it comes to blogging, you can cover anything imaginable. But be careful heading into a "popular" niche. "Popular" means you'll have more competition, so it will be more difficult for you to rank and see the results you want. For example, there are millions of blogs out there about losing weight; unless you have something amazing to offer, you're just going to be one of the masses.

    If you're trying to pick a niche, pick something that truly interests you. After all, you're going to be publishing content regularly, PLUS you're going to have to do alot of work to promote your blog. If it's a topic that doesn't interest you, you'll burn out quickly.

    Well said. I appreciate your response. been thinking a lot about this lately. I'd like to start a blog but I can't really decide what it should be about. There are so many things I like and am good at so it's kind of tough. But you have a great point there.
    A friend of mine decided to start a blog to earn money. (Bad idea). He blogged for 2 whole months after which he moved on to another 'money making' thing. People start blogging for all the wrong reasons. Not all
    but a great number yes.
    I asked cause I wanted to know what people are really interested in but after giving it some thought, I came to conclusion that even if I blog about how my hair grows an inch a month people will read it if I make it interesting (woo hoo am I proud of myself for coming to that conclusion lol).

    When you want to know what people are really interested in you will have to raise a poll on that with brief details on each area of your interests which will help you find the percentage of audiences interest on those topics. You can also do this by conducting some searches on Google trends as already suggested.

    Even though I can see that you had selected a topic to start blogging, if you have a good network either online or offline you can ask those people about your ideas on finding the best blog topic. All the best!

    I'm with the "Blog what you're passionate about" crowd.

    It doesn't matter how popular a subject is, if you're not passionate about it people won't connect with your writings.

    Then again, if you're passionate about building toy monkeys out of macaroni, people probably won't be very interested in your writings either. Lol I don't know where this stuff comes from.

    It depends on what product you are promoting. In my opinion, you should choose the niche that is relevant to your product.

    It's true to choose a topic that you are passionate about. However, if your passion is about something that no one is interested in you will have little success. To find hot niches check out ebay, amazon, google etc.. for trending/hot topics.

    Thanks for the idea with ebay and amazon. I didn't think of that. You opened my mind.

    You're welcome, check out these locations

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers
    http://pulse.ebay.com/
    http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends
    http://buzzlog.buzz.yahoo.com/overall

    See what people are looking for. What keywords they're using to find products. What they're spending money on and what makes them spend money. Go for a niche where people constantly buy new products. You don't wanna go into niche where people buy one product and that's pretty much it.

    Try to go through forums aswell. Type in Google:

    "niche+forums" or "niche+discussion board" (replace niche with your keyword/desired niche)

    On these forums you will find valuable information about your prospects. Check out the FAQ and you'll have lots ideas too.

    Also check out your competition with a tool like Market Samurai:

    http://www.marketsamurai.com

    You don't wanna go into a niche with large companies sitting there for years at the top.

    You now got a load of valuable information some people would charge you for Take it easy and have a good action plan or else you will suffer from information overload

    Good luck!

    Yes, cooking recipies are a good blog subject because we have to face it: we like to cook or..to eat.
    Also another subject it would be the psychological part of us, the character, how can we become more optimistic, how can we understand better the others etc.

    If we are talking about niches the eco and bio products/technology is one of its.

    I think best niches can only be determine by you.. why because if everyone here find a better niche then they will not share it to you since veryone wants it to be theirs too... But for my understanding you can only be the one to know what is best for you.. you have to find it out and check for your self what you are passionate about...

    I have to disagree with that kind of thinking.

    If there were no others in your niche, then you would have no contacts, no trackbacks, and no honorable mentions anywhere. There would only be what the search engines find when they crawl your site, and that would be less than it is now for the reasons I just pointed out.

    Based on my experience, celebrity and gambling blogs are popular.
