Several months ago I was reading all about the make money blog niche and decided it would be something fun to enter, and probably the easiest niche to monetize. Three months in, I have realized it is probably not the niche I should have chosen. In fact, the free blog I set up on WordPress about gaming is the only blog I’ve monetized yet. Granted I am nearing the $2,000 mark from almost 6 months of blogging, I am still enjoying the niche.

While the biggest mistake I made was not getting it’s own domain soon enough, I still enjoy it. Had I moved that blog to it’s own domain, I would have been able to monetize it very well. I am getting 1,200 views a day on that blog! Almost all of it coming from Google too. If I were to have Google AdSense up on a domain getting that traffic I could have made another couple hundred. If I sold private ads, another couple thousand.

What I’m getting at is picking your niche is very important. If it weren’t for me trying to prove the Noob that I can succeed in this niche, I would have dropped it a long time ago. Pick a niche you enjoy writing in. There are so many ways to monetize any niche, it’s just a matter of finding out how. Make it easier on yourself and start off from the get go with a niche you enjoy writing in.
