  1. I prefer niche blogging because It attracts user's attention because it works like specialist. I mean to say one can find all the seo realted things(say) at one place for example searchenginejournal, it has niche SEO. I love it but the problem with niche bloggers is they restricts themselves quite a bit.

  2. Hi,

    Really nice, indeed those are all the blog types, I wasn’t expecting to see so many, really great types. Also, you are right about the money-passion thing, in order to keep the business going alright you must think good, don’t “poison” your thinking and working style with money. You must do your job for passion too, if there is no passion you will soon get demotivated and stop working and waste all the time spent on working and all the work so it’s not worth. Thanks for sharing this great article!

    Best regards,
