You must be thinking that what are the missing things, which other bloggers have learnt.

But don’t worry because these things are very common for all newbies and we learn the things with little steps only.

Are you passionate?

This is the very first questions, you must ask from yourself.
Are you seriously passionate to make money online or doing it just by seeing other people’s success and income?
Passion and your knowledge is the key to get success online.
I have seen that most of the newbie start blogging by seeing others and most common niche to enter in blogging is tech niche.
You can run a simple blog by writing very basic articles, but for running niche blogs you will have to hone your writing skills. So, find your passion and look into it more deeply to find such small niche.
Let’s take example
Suppose you are a music lover and just keep listening songs all the day. In simple words I can say is, “You are PASSIONATE about music.”
So you just found your passion.
Next task is to figure out which types of songs you listen more. Here I am supposing that you enjoy POP SONGS much more than other songs. By doing this we have narrowed down your interest and now we know that this is a specific category.
Now our task is to find the singer, whose songs do you enjoy the most?
Here we have narrowed down your interest (micro-niche) and our task is done.
Now you know that you love to listen that particular singer’s POP songs more than others, this means you have figured out your hidden passion and interest.
Now building micro niche blog around that interest is much easier for you.
It’s time to celebrate.
This was just an example. In this way you can break down your interest in various small parts.
Do you know who are your readers?

Your site will get success only when more readers will visit your blog.
For around 7-8 months in my starting days of blogging, I was not aware about my readers.
I was just writing, writing and writing. I didn’t know for whom I am writing.
I was just writing.
And the results were – I was not getting that much traffic and interaction on my blog.
Then one day I decided that I will write for newbies only, and things became too much easy for me. More people started talking about it and I got much more readers.
So deciding your audience and then build blog for them is the key.
Do you know how to attract people on your site?

Attracting people on your niche site need too much research and patience.
Every third blogger is struggling to get traffic on their blog with various methods and only few of them are getting desired results.
Why this is so?
Because they don’t know accurate approach to interact with readers.
Note: I will suggest that don’t think about building niche blog if you are not aware about traffic driving methods.
So decide the ways to drive traffic on your blog, either this is paid or free sources but you must have clear idea that how you are going to use them and how much traffic you want to make money from that site.
Do know how to do proper keyword research?

Different niches make money from different monetization methods.
So you must be completely aware, how you are going to monetize your niche site.
