Do you have a niche or are you a generalist, and which is better in your view?

    With some exceptions Dennis, I think most writers are both niche writers and generalists. Some of the best columnists are like this, one day writing about politics, the next day about their kid's school.

    I think most of us fall into this category - We have expertise and background in certain areas, but that doesn't stop us from writing about something that seizes our interest.

    I'm with you Sherry. Although I do have a few areas of expertise, I could never ignore interesting topics just because they're "off-niche."

    Thanks for your comment L.L I have some totally unrelated niches (boating, law, business management) but I will often go off into the wild blue if I find a topic that interests me.

    I too would be bored Joan if I stuck to one niche. I think this niche business is an outgrowth of the ubiquitous marketing seminars where we constantly hear "Fine your niche!" How about "Good Writer" as a niche?

    I agree Jan. I write about what interests me, and I'm interested in a lot of things.

    Skye, if your niche is to praise God and bring His message to others, please continue your niche because you do a wonderful job based on the hubs you've written. I have just followed you and look forward to your future hubs. Russ Moran

    Humor is the greatest niche of all Michael.
