Allan, nice to hear from you. I did respond to you yesterday but I popped over to another location here and my comment disappeared. So I gave up in disgust of myself as I keep doing this. (You used to be able to and the change still hasn't sunk in.)

Well, what I was saying was that I would love to see some images of your grottos. I had three geotechnical investigations done for my house site. All of them said no rock. So I have attached and image of my no-rocks! Actually I have a LOT of smaller ones that are very interestingly shaped so I might build one myself someday.

I look forward to viewing your website once you publish it and put the link here in your profile page.

Keep in touch.

Hello Allen, ♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. You can find them on my profile on the right, the first website link (click on my picture). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Kyle,

How about a niche about choosing the best hat for you?

Kyle Premium
All niches have a ton of opportunity within them. There are 2.8 billion people online and we are all now more connected than ever. This is the audience you are dealing with the Internet and even some of the most obscure niches have millions of people interested in them.

You should read about this here within a blog post I recently created on this exactly topic: YOU make a niche profitable and that is why it is important that you decide on a niche that you are interested in/passionate about. It will make the journey that much more fun and exciting. ;)

How about men's hats for a niche?
Reply
DeRaj Premium
Sure Allan,
It is a great niche. But, I ask you one thing. Do you have enough knowledge about men's hats? Can you at least write several articles related with men's hat. If so, then sure it is perfect niche for you. What I mean is that we should choose niche in which we have enough knowledge and about which we can write several articles because we will get more traffic if we can write more articles and once we get traffic, then we will have various ways to earn from it. So, the main thing we should think while choosing niche is our knowledge regarding that niche. That is why it is call niche, our own subject of interest.
For example, if you choose men's hat, then can you write several articles like different articles for different men's hat models and brands, men's hats for different occasions, men's hats for particular event, men's hats for casual wear and office wear, men's hats for particular age etc? If you can, then you are all set to go.
Hope you understand. If not, please feel free to knock me again.
Good Luck!

I'll have to do some research on men's hats. Won't that be the case with a lot of niches? I'm not sure I have sufficient knowledge on any kind of niche where I wouldn't have to do research on the topic.
Reply
DeRaj Premium
Sure we need to research on every topic. What I mean is at least start with that topic about which you think you can understand after doing research. Otherwise sometime people will end up choosing such niche about which they don't have enough knowledge and after doing research also they will not able to get everything well. However, since men's hat niche is easy to understand so, doing research on this niche is very easy to gather the information. Sure you can do well in this niche. So, you can proceed on this niche.
Good Luck!
