Finding Your Article Niche

Photo by Sora Shimazaki on

There are a multitude of topics to write about for blogs, but also for articles you submit to magazines. I regularly write for a writers magazine with a focus on the writing craft. With a monthly topic to create and submit, this practice allows me to improve my writing skill and reach new audiences.

As freelance writers, the more you can highlight your skill the better and utilizing your knowledge and personal viewpoint is a great way to get your name and business known.

The following is a list of possible topics you can cover, however, there are topics I am sure you will be able to add of your own. Everyone has some knowledge within these specific topics, making your voice article unique.
