Blogging is not a fantastic way to share
your thoughts with the world and meet (virtually) new people: it's also a
surprisingly effective way to make money. Choose enough followers and you can
generate income in different ways: you can sell products, attract donations, take advantage of affiliate links and even become a partner
with brands as an influencer.
But to make money as a blogger, it takes more than an engaging voice, a lot of enthusiasm and dedication. You must also target the right niche.
What are they? Well, I will not list them all,
but I will tell you 5
that are worth your time. Here they are:
Everyone wants to be healthier and everyone has goals related to that desire. You may have fitness goals, such as losing weight, gaining weight, or becoming able to run a certain distance. You may have general health goals, such as maintaining a better diet, getting rid of your back pain or feeling less stressed.

invest – so we turn to experts to give us some advice.
There are so many tips and tricks,
with many that only apply in specific areas or for certain types of people,
that there is still room in this niche for new bloggers. Narration is a big

as an expert, you can write your own guide and offer it at a low price (or simply
allow people to pay for what they want for it).
The gaming market is more important than ever. The video game is actually the biggest entertainment market
by business figure having long since left a stigmatized hobby for
an entirely consumer industry. And since there is still a lot of growth,
it's a good time to start blogging about it.
You can blog about your gaming experiences,
what are your favorite games and what are you looking forward to. You can
analyze playgrounds and search interviews with game developers. You can even start
broadcast your own game via a site such as Twitch to retrieve an additional ad
business figure and expand your customer base.
You do not need to stop with normal video
games, however. There is also the booming world of online gambling –
instead of going to the physical casinos, people can stay at home and play
at their leisure. Sites like Online Casinos and Slots Up detail the best online casinos on

encourage your subscribers to start buying.
Fashion is great because everything is subjective
and driven by emotion. You do not need to explain
why a dress is the best: just show people how happy they are
it makes you, and they want it to make them
happy too. It's a simple psychology.
We are all trying to be better and more
Well-rounded people, and cooking is a big part of that. Cooking shows have

the chefs work and follow their recipes. What's great about cooking blogs is
that there is no right or wrong answer: your recipes and your preferences are
only to you.
It's almost impossible to monetize an individual

in a cookbook for sale . You can also get affiliate income
to link to the kitchen equipment, and even live your kitchen on
something like YouTube or Facebook.
