Nowadays, blogs are segmented into different lucrative blog niches.
This is quite different from what was obtainable many years ago when you could blog about just anything and make money.
If you are a student just starting out to blog, or you are a new blogger testing the waters, this should be good news for you.
What this means is that you could choose a particular topic that most of your writings would revolve around.
It makes your work easier and gradually, you’ll become an authority in it.
A niche blog could be about How to Cook Nigerian or Ghanaian Dishes; edgy fashion tips and so on.
If either of this is your niche, you would have to blog about every topic around it.
How Many Blog Niches Do we have?
From gossip blogs to fashion and lifestyle blogs, there are hundreds of blog niches.
But I realize that a lot of new bloggers don’t know much about niche blogging ideas.
That’s why I decided to research on all profitable niche blogs in Nigeria and give you some insights.
What You Should Know Before Starting a Niche blog
Before we go properly into the untapped blog niches in Nigeria, I have a few words of caution.
This is based on my experience of niche blogging so far.
I hope you’ll take it in good fate.
Not all blog niches are for you!
Even though some blog niches attract good traffic, they may not necessarily be your best bet.
For example, a lot of people believe that entertainment blogs are very profitable.
But the truth is the entertainment niche is one of the most saturated in Nigeria.
Today I succeed in such a niche would require a lot of tweaks to your blog.
But take a well-structured relationship, for example, it is not as saturated as entertainment blogs.
But if you put in the right measure of strategy, you will surely find it profitable.
So it all boils down to how well you are willing to work.
No matter your blog niche, there are simple tips that will help grow your blog fast.
If you follow these tips well, you will thrive in any blog niche.
Passion is Involved Too
Never start a blog that you would soon get tired of.
As long as you love it, you don’t even have to be an authority in the niche you choose.
Your ability to learn fast is what matters. You will learn on the job, so far you love your niche.
Now, here is a full list of blog niches you can choose from.
You will not come across a blog niche list as robust and all-encompassing as this in one post.
So sit back, relax and enjoy it.
I know you’ll find it very helpful.
Feel free to add to the list should you have any additional list to contribute.
Remember, there is love in sharing.
