In my younger, more vulnerable years, I used to keep a list of all the books I read. I took pride in this, took pride in counting how many books I read in any given year.

Finding a great niche is one of the first steps you must take as a blogger. That’s why it’s important to get it right. Everything you do online depends on locating a topic that actually has the potential of becoming the gathering spot for a tribe of enthusiasts.
