I asked myself What is my niche?
A niche is the subject matter description of whatever the website or product is all about.
Saving Money, Camping, Internet Marketing, Travelling Australia, website building, E-commerce, Goals, Hobbies & Fun are all niches. Whilst I may dabble in one or two of these, my website needs more focus.
In order to be more successful, I need to try and narrow down my niche so that my blog moves in one direction. At the moment it is floating around unsure of its direction.
Having a narrow niche makes it easier for the search engines to categorize what my website is about, and work out the overall topic, or niche.
I have set up these larger niches, as categories that I will sort my blog posts into. I do need to try and make sure that although my topics are varied, I can pull a theme together within the blog in general.
I will no doubt add more categories as I continue, and add sub-categories if I can.
Some links on this page and throughout my website may be affiliate links. If you make a purchase through one of my links I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. For full disclosure, you can view my affiliate disclosure page.
As I mentioned in my very first blog post, I have many notes that I have made on a lot of niches including things like gardening, household cleaning, and business.
My blog is a combination of my personal experiences and things I have tried during my 56 plus years.
A niche can be any topic at all. It is really a matter of trying to identify what I can confidently write about constantly. I feel that this could be the actions I am taking, as an older person, towards building a business.
I feel that my overall niche is that of a 50 plus homeless nomad who travels and is building an online business. Everything else is just what I enjoy doing.
I am not a spring chicken anymore, so I am an old fogey.
I don’t have a house, I sold it nearly 10 years ago. No more mortgage. I am homeless.
I travel Australia in a motorhome, which is a truck with the Pantech made into living space. I am a nomad.
I am trying to get away from selling face to face for a business and trying to build an online business.
This is how I decided on my slogan – old fogey, homeless nomad building an online business.
My Niche is About Me
Some people say that you should set up a website per niche.
I may set up sub-topics later as I have done for my health and beauty niche, but for now, my main niche is doing everything My Way. As I am a stubborn so and so, I will add everything together in this website.
This is why I chose the website domain My Way. I am building a website my way. I am building my online business, and sharing it.
As mentioned, I have already set up a second website dedicated to healthy eating and living. It is
A niche has also been described as a group of people looking for something. It could be a product, a service or even how to do something. I hope that there will be many people interested in the business of making money online. I aim to make this blog about my thoughts and ideas, as well as actions I take in order to build my business.
I hope that as I add further blog posts I will be able to solve problems that some people have with respect to the above niches. In many ways, my niche is about life and living
I trust that as I become ‘known’ across the internet I will be able to expand on each topic and write more detail on each. I aim to then have some of my own books, reports or even videos on the topics.
However, for now, I will settle for being a know-it-all and have a range of niches covered within this blog.
I do have a lot of knowledge tucked away between my ears somewhere and often advise people what to do and how to fix issues.
Through the businesses that I have run, I have sold a wide range of products and I am certain that I will be able to offer readers plenty of information that is relevant today and can help people to live a life that is free of the 9-5 grind. Been there, done that.
What is your niche?
You may be considering starting a blog or website or even a social media following.
Have you thought about a subject matter to discuss?
This could be specific, or like me, it could be more general in nature. I could not think of anything worse than trying to find ten different ways to write about the same topic.
I hope you can get some ideas from this blog post and it will help you to decide on a theme that suits you and you are comfortable writing about.
I now want to enjoy every day and spend time having fun. Fun to me includes spending time online. Life flies by so quickly and I am looking ahead and thinking “how can I work less, enjoy life more and live simply, without stress”
This is what I am all about. I want to continue to travel across Australia, sharing my photos with you. What about you? Can you find a way to work less, enjoy life more and live a simpler stress-free lifestyle?
