Two ideas for my niche:
- Helping patients and families become more informed about their choices/options approaching hospital discharge before the day of discharge. The questions they should be asking and the questions they may want to consider before day of discharge. Thoughts? I am not sure how to simplify?

- Promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle. Thoughts? Too simple?

I think you have simplified re your hospital discharge idea.

I think I can narrow down the “wordy” concept. Thanks for your positive feedback and look forward to supporting each other along the way!

Oh ok, I think I get you now. I thought your concept had been simplified, but you were talking more about the fact that the idea requires words i.e. asking questions upon discharge. If I'm correct in this assumption, my advice is to write it and then edit. It's amazing how much one can cull through repeated edits.

Regardless of my intent, your response is insightful and reflective.

I like the hospital discharge one. I don't see a need to simplify it; I would go all in and write everything there is to know on the topic. Make it the go-to resource for your target audience.

The eco-friendly lifestyle niche could definitely work as well, I'm just worried the competition is so stiff you might not have success for quite awhile. This is just a guess, I could be totally wrong.

If you need any more clarification/thoughts, just let me know!

Hello, guys, I need your help which will need a creative way of thinking. I think one of the good ways to find your niche is a knowing on what you believe and with what you had actions. I mean not only interests, because it can be a fiction in our minds :) so I understood that I like adrenaline, its a skydive, diving, fast speed. But I don't have any idea how to connect all these things in some logical aspect. If you agree or also finding your niche, let's discuss:)
Reply
I feel you on this. How about model airplanes, model cars both gas/electric. Also model airplanes and drones. Big this time of year in this last quarter till Christmas!!! For the skydiver in you add skydiving equipment for the true adrenaline junkie.
Reply
Thank you, Joseph, actually its good idea, about drones:) but immediately is a new question about competitors. Do you find a niche for yourself?

I'm working on my first site and the material.
First question: Does anyone have any advice on how to maintain your personal privacy while still being personal and relatable in your blogs? I'm drawing from my experiences with my family, but keeping their privacy is definitely a priority.

Second Question: Does anyone know of a good reputable source for great stock photos (free or reasonable priced)?

Many Thanks!!!!

That is something that you are in full control of, and you can do what you are comfortable with. Many of the most successful bloggers out there have used aliases (pen names) and that is completely fine, or you could just use your first name, or a nickname.

And when you engage people with your content, you want to be relatable.

Hi Kim,

I too have often wondered about my family and relatives' privacy. As you become more comfortable behind the keyboard you will naturally find ways of not mentioning names or releasing too much information to the public.

The last thing I want is my uncle breathing down the back of my neck, making sure I don't share one of the embarrassing moments of his life (and believe me he has a bunch I could share)

LOL

I have found that having someone proofread my more personal articles prior to posting them helps me quite a bit, a second opinion is always more keen than the original author, and can also make sure privacy is maintained to its utmost.

Hope this helps, Calvin

You will find that when you are writing your blog, there is a media button located at the top that allows you to access over a million photos that you can use. You will develop more sources as time goes one and if you want to explore, try the following:

I know what I want for my first niche, health including diet, detox and maybe comfort measures. I saw a product on Click Bank I would like to promote. The sales for this product has beautiful pictures and excellent blogs. Also a high commission.,Now teach me what to do please. :)

Hi - first of all, don't be rushing ahead. The training is laid out in a specific order to build up your website to a genuine online business. Its a slow and steady process. By following the training step by step and completing each task as you are asked to do so, you will have built your website by the end of lesson 4.

Health is a very broad and competitive niche, so ideally you need to narrow it down so as to be seen as an authority on a particular subject. However, not so narrow as to only focus on one product. You can promote lots of different products.

When you apply to join an affiliate program, they will inspect your website to make sure it is suitable, before you get accepted. This means having lots of original content which you have written about your niche.

So, your first steps are to follow the training and build your website. From then on, write lots of articles about your niche. Finally, you can apply to join affiliate programs and promote products.

This is not a get rich quick scheme and takes time, hard work and patience.
