Whether you are a writer of articles or novels you are naturally hoping that more than just a few people will find and read your work. Which means that you have to come up with topics that are interesting as well as popular with those who are looking for them.
Many writers choose to write articles which are seasonal in nature ie: Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas; or spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Their articles rise in popularity during their season, and then fall in the ratings till their season returns, and these topics once again rise up in popularity.
Other writers choose to write on current events. These are topics which are popular at the moment but have a large possibility of fading with time.
Some writers choose a popular niche topic to write on and then stick very closely to their theme over the long haul. If you write professionally then it is your readership which generally garners you a paycheck so finding popular topic matter for your writing is very important no matter which style of writing you choose to participate in.
Words are Everywhere and They Influence Those Who Read Them
Niche Writing: Is it the Method of Writing for you?
A niche topic is a specialized or very narrow subject area. For example outdoor sports would be a broad topic area, fishing would be a still popular but somewhat narrower niche topic. Collectible fishing lures, fishing locations, types of fishing, and species of sport fish, would be narrow niche topics.
Often the theory is that the narrower your niche then the more likely you are to acquire readership. However this is not always the case. For those who write prolifically a larger niche area can also be a very profitable arena to write in.
One also has to keep in mind that many niche topics have already been covered extensively, so do your research to see if you feel that you can compete in a specific niche, or move on to another subject.
Once you have chosen your topic the best method of inching your way into your niche field is to choose a very narrow area of interest within your broad theme and have your first articles focus only on this small niche topic. Ie: Your broad topic is sports, your niche is sport fishing, your niche topic narrowed down further could be Invasive Asian Carp.
If you find that you enjoy writing within a niche and you are doing well within this area then pick up another narrow niche area within the broader field of your topic. You can then continue to write outward for as far as your broad niche topic allows.
Popular Niche Topics
You Can Write in the Current Events and News Category
Current events are of course the items that are currently hitting your local newspaper, internet news, and radio. These topics are very popular while they are at their peek and made visible by frequent news casts.
These topics include major news makers, sporting events, championships, national disasters, weather news, world news, charity issues and events, etc.
These trending topics can have an immediate high traffic flow but then have a tendency to dip down in the ranks once their spotlight fades. Some never emerge again while others may have a seasonal recurring emergence.
Take a photo whenever the opportunity presents itself
A picture can bring you a wealth of ideas. Writing prompts are images, sayings, quotes, or sentences designed to stimulate your mind into a creative mode. Expose yourself to new adventures and ideals. Get your imagination tingling with anticipation of a new journey into that magical wonderland that we call literature.
