It is apparently clear that there are a lot of people blogging on Blogger; but very few people are aware of their existence (Hopefully, that would all change in time to come).
It is quite evident that some niches are doing better than others.
Fashion Blogs Are At The Forefront
I have also noticed that fashion bloggers have a way of supporting each other; it is as though it is some kind of fraternity where female bloggers have vowed to visit the fashion blogs of their fellow bloggers.
I also noticed that many of the fashion blogs had lots of comments in their comment section and that they had a large number of followers too (Hmm. Now, I have a greater understanding as to why a lot of bloggers have chosen fashion as their niche; they want to grab a very large percentage of the readership from those in the blogosphere and also from those who are just checking out the latest fashion trends on the world wide web).
Blogs About Book Reviews Were Last In Line
Is it that people are losing their interest in literature? Or, that they have no intentions of buying books? Maybe, some people are not interested in literature, because they have poor comprehension skills, or are illiterate and some of the ones who can read are too impoverished to purchase a new set of books.
However, the sales of books seem to be doing fairly well worldwide.
Recently, I visited some blogs on Blogger that specialized in book reviews and I was appalled to notice that the response that they received from their fellow bloggers was dismal.
Music Blogs Are A Give And Take
Since, we all love music, I would want to believe that music blogs have a fair chance of survival in the blogosphere.
The Food Blogs Have A Moderate Amount Of Success
The blogs that specialized in vegan recipes did somewhat okay (Although some of those blogs gave me the impression that vegan blogs were a thing of the past; but you and I both know that is not true).
Those food blogs that posted lots of desserts attracted lots of people who love to eat candy, cake and ice cream.
So, the success of the food blogs had a lot to do with the type of food, or dessert that they posted.
Blogs That Deal With Product Reviews Are Fairly Successful
Someone is always interested in some type of product that is on the market.
Health Blogs Get Their Fair Share Of Recognition
Almost everyone is interested in health; so the health niche will always be one of those niches that would stand out from the rest.
People Love Blogs That Deal With Art And Craft
I have noticed that the art and craft niche does fairly well.
Not All Technology Blogs Are Doing Well
And, of course, those that were around for sometime were the ones that got most of the comments.
But why is it that one type of niche is more popular than the other? Probably, it has to do with the level of support that it gets from those in the blogosphere.
Although the fashion niche is highly popular, it is one of those niches that gets lots of support from those who are within the same niche.
Therefore, if the other not so popular niches had the same type of support as the fashion niche, they would no doubt witness an increase in popularity.
In reality, the success of a niche (and a blog in general) stems from the level of support that it gets from others.
Blogs and niches that have managed to build their own blog community (especially, when that community is comprised of a large number of people) will no doubt do better than those that did not work on building their own blog community.
Therefore, it is quite possible for the other niches that are not so popular at the moment to do well in the near future; all they have to do is to work on building their blog community.
Although I do not do a niche-related blog, I worked hard at building my own blog community here on Blogger (And, I can state that is one of the reasons why my blog gets the level of attention that it is getting now).
So, dear friends, it would be a wise move to work on building your very own blog community; without it, your blog will stand a very little chance of survival in the blogosphere.
