The first step in starting a blog is to define a niche. This is where your passions and interests will intersect with some type of market demand, and serve as a way for you to make money writing about something you love.

In this lesson, I’ll show you exactly how to strategically choose a niche that you’ll love writing about (while making money doing so) and then conduct keyword research to refine your focus.

From there, I’ll show you how to come up with a unique, brandable blog and domain name that you can use to stand out from the competition and eventually turn into a long-term brand that you’re known for.

Taking the time to strategically select a niche, and then carefully research it, helps to ensure that you’re building a brand that stands the test of time, not a novelty website that you’ll have to re-create from scratch a few years from now.

Trust me, I’ve learned the hard way. Having spent years working on projects that aren’t still around, I can tell you that you’ll want to take the time and effort up front to make sure you’re building something that’ll be around in the future.
