Find Your Music Niche
The first thing you’ll need to do once you’ve decided to start a music blog is to find your niche.
Firstly, have a think about what it is that you want to write about, and what you can do to make your blog stand out from the crowd. There are already thousands of music blogs out there, so you’ll need to find a way to make yours different.
Think about which areas of music you love, or have experience with. The important thing to remember is that you can’t provide everything – so don’t try and spread yourself too thin, by covering all genres and content types.
Instead, focus on key areas that you can offer value in, and that will allow you to build up an engaged and interested audience.
Some examples of the type of niche you could choose include:
- Focusing on different music genres such as rock, classical, or country.
- Focusing on artists and music events in a specific location such as individual states, cities, or countries.
- Creating specific content such as reviews or interviews.
- Using your blog to promote your work.
