How to Find Your Niche

It does not have to be what your passionate about.

Finding your niche is the most difficult part about being a writer. Sometimes, you just do not know what you should talk about. If you take a look at my articles, I am all over the place.

I have stories about psychology, fiction, personal-development, relationships, and coding.

If you can think it, I probably wrote it.

Yet, I did not just write articles on different niches for the art of writing. I had to figure out in which niche I performed better and which one I felt more comfortable writing on.

I will be honest, this led to a lot of disappointments when I saw a lot of stories flop. Especially, the ones that I thought were my best work.

To know which is is your niche you will need to figure out these 2 things:

  1. Do you feel comfortable writing?

I remember when I started to write about Psychology, I felt like I just did not want to write the article. I was triggered to just shut my computer and not look at it again.

I felt like I was forcing myself to write. It was one of the most uncomfortable writing experiences I’ve had since college.

I mean who wants to write a research paper and feel comfortable. It did not feel natural.

Now, how did this affect my writing exactly?

My articles did not sound like an experience, I was giving the reader a boring assignment to read. It was not my best work, it clearly showed. There was less engagement and reading-time.

That’s when I switched things up.

I started to write about things that I liked, things that made me feel good when writing. I wrote stories about love and fiction; those stories outperformed my previous work.

2. Are your stories coming from you?

Originality is one of the most important things for success as a writer. I don’t know how many times, I have seen the same story by different writers. Too many.




If you cannot find me, I am probably writing. Usually, I write about fiction, love, and self-improvement. Oh, love!
