7. Make Money Online
These days it would seem that everyone wants to follow this trend regardless whether they have experience in making money online or not. If you fancy yourself a bit of an e-entrepreneur and think that you have what it takes to tap into this lucrative but somewhat saturated market then why not launch a blog about making money online? My advice first though is learn how to make money online first before telling everyone else how to make money online.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a photographer or perhaps you have a great knowledge in photography, then why not share your photos, tips and advice on your very own photography blog.
If you love making a fashion statement and can’t keep away from finding out what the latest trends in the fashion world then why not start a blog about it. Are you creative? Do you enjoy making your own fashion clothing and accessories? A blog in this niche could be the biggest break you give yourself yet.
This is another popular and exciting blog niche to get into. If you love playing video games or think you’ve got what it takes to create the next successful iPhone games or app, then share your tips and strategies with your own games blog. According to Price Waterhouse Cooper the projected US video games revenue is set to rock through the roof at $12.4 billion dollars by 2011, that’s a 38% growth from 2006’s 9.0 billion dollar revenue. A blog in gaming could be the real online success you’re looking for.
