Blogging is more fun if you blog on things that interests you. That way, you will post your blog entries like an expert who live the same niche life 24 by 7. If you try to learn your niche and research your way through then at some point of time you will run out of ideas and slowly your blog will stagnate due to lack of fresh content.
Every niche has sub niches and when you start to explore them, you will see that several large niches have a sub-niche that interests you more. For example, you like traveling but your hobby isn’t simply traveling, but traveling as a family in a car which is also known as taking long-drives.
