How to Choose the Right Blogging Niche [That Makes You Money]
Note: The weekly How the F*ck newsletter will be written by a guest author throughout August. This week, Samantha North is taking over the show. I interviewed Samantha a little while ago for the podcast, and she seriously impressed me with her knowledge of SEO and content. Samantha has built her own niche site to 100K monthly visitors in 6 months, and teaches others how to do it every day on LinkedIn (you can book a strategy session with her over there). Her personal website on SEO and blogging strategy is also a great read!

I’ll unpack two critical aspects that go into niche selection, including:

  1. The SEO factors that matter
  2. The personal factors that matter

Let’s go!
