I’m going to tell you a story today. One day a couple months back, I was sitting at my girlfriend’s apartment just watching TV with her. I’m not sure what the topic was anymore (it’s not relevant to the rest of the story anyways) but I had an idea. I had an idea for a blog post. When I get an idea for a blog post I have to act quickly, whether I just write it down for later or pump the article out right away, I have to do something with it or its gone. So I told Katie, I’m going to write a quick post before I lose this idea. This did not make her happy.
I grabbed my computer and started writing. I quickly noticed though that she was not still watching TV, she was watching me. She mentioned that she felt left out when I was writing a post so I suggested she start a blog and write with me. Katie thought this was a good idea but was confused about what to write about. I have done plenty of reading and researching about blogging and told her to pick something that she is passionate about. What was her response? “Puppies!”
“But how can I write about puppies?” was her next question. I told her don’t have to write about them, make a picture blog. Just post pictures of cute puppies! She loved the idea and started a blog right away. PrettyPuppyPals.com was born.
Jump ahead a couple months, I’m checking the stats on all of my websites and I notice Pretty Puppy Pals’ stats compared to mine here on Inflecto Vita. She had over double the hits that I was getting. My website had been around for twice as long as her’s had and she was still getting way more traffic than I was. I didn’t understand.
Moral of the story: There is a niche for everyone here on the internet. Start tweeting, blogging, Youtubing or anything else. People will find it, read it, watch it and will enjoy what you do.
