Keeping a blog – niche or broad?

Friday I went to Webstock 2012.
Two oppositve views:

  • According to Costin COCIOABĂ, you should find our niche and keep it ruthlessly. Find an idea, plan it, stick to the plan. Răzvan PASCU also focuses on niches.
  • Adrian CIUBOTARU has the opposite approach: he writes on just about any subject. Although more targeted, Cristian CHINA-BIRTA also tends to write on a general note.

Which solution is the good one?

It might surprise you, but I think you can do well with both of these solutions. First of all, look at the above examples – all four are successful bloggers (in their niche, I might add :) ).

I used to think “hmm, if you don’t have a niche, you’ll not make it”. I’m not so sure nowadays.

I am a Digital Marketing freelancer.My expertise is in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) / UX (user experience) / WordPress.Co-founder of (series of events on SEO & PPC) and (Book on branding for MDs).On a personal level, I like self-development - events, sports, healthy living, volunteering, reading, watching movies, listening to music.

    I believe in something a little bit different: combining two niches. It’s broad enough for me not to get tired with the subject and specific enough to become an authority in the field.

    This sounds OK. :)
