How to chose your blogging niche

Mathematics is not for everyone.
See, what I said in the first statement. And thought came at random. I am not sure but its perhaps due to my close association with academics. I am blogging since years, created many blogs and even killed some that too good earning blog. I can't go in those details in this post but I killed as a 'test', anyone would call me a mad, no blogger will kill an earning blog but I did that. I love doing experiments and did that for my own reasons... details may be sometime later.
If you are planning to build a blog do not do it because you are inspired by success of Mashable, that won't lead you to anywhere. On the internet there are millions of blogs published by companies and individuals like Leo Notenboom, an expert of computer security.
Before you start a blog look what interests you. I worked for many years as Gig worker. But when I found something techy I read that first holding work and loosing money. When you work hourly you are paid for output not hours. Extra reading time I always suppose that I am paying someone so I can read. Things like space, new tech, research data and branding are simply irresistible.
1. Know what is irresistible for you.
Blogging needs lots of writing, everyone can't not do that. Writing is about putting your brainwaves on paper.
2. Ask yourself, am I a writer?
Which book you read recently and how much you liked it or disliked it. What were you able to take from the book? Even if it was a trash. Or you don't like reading.
Blogging needs lots of reading not only in your niche but many things beyond. Without reading you will be miser of words.
3. You should be a good reader to make your blog successful.
Can you find errors in morning newspaper? Can you rewrite an essay or story that you have read recently in different words while keeping its meaning static or to same.
4. Blogging requires editing and proofing content. Nobody will like to read a junk.
How long you can wait for your turn in a salon? Did you curse when barber is busy and there is a long queue?
5. Blogging requires patience.
So before you book your domain name and start blogging check yourself do you have those qualities. Being passionate about a thing is one story but to make it a successful blogging needs lots of sweat mixed with smartwork.
While saying all those words I suppose you are individual and looking to start your new blog and most the work you have to do yourself.

Work hard but when

Work hardThose are two words I grew listening with As a young kid I used to think should I go forest and cut some tree branches, or like my Grandpa graze some cattle or like that uncle go farm. And if work hard is the key why not my dad go forest so we can buy and fly an airplane. Perhaps small children think like that and think much freely, don't know though but I was like that. Airplane dream never realized and when I joined a company I was told we want to be number 1. I didn't nodded even, just learnt CEO want to take company to No. 1 position, somewhere deep down I took that as a challenge. The inner me knows I have an opportunity to invest resources and grow. I am in habit of enjoying my task so no big deal, I know I can try my best to work my way, results are not in my hands. What I can do is called work. And being a physics student i know when we multiply force to distance we get work done. That work could be hilarious, why not, laughing gas is there a result of work done by …

Why small blogger fails

If you are blogging solo,Focus on your niche and stick to it.Read a lot.Research.Go library, subscribe to ebooks.Listen to experts.Ask many questions.Take many questions from your readers.Be open to critics.Solve problems.Write what you know, references are a must.Do not try to be like someone. Be your own-self.Post regularly.Be realisticSet tough goalsFocus on quality not quantity.Know your market and be there.Advertise your blog.Revise old posts.Work on UI/UX.Write better next day.Be open to change with time.
