    Do you prefer to write using a particular "niche" or do you write on all subjects?

    All subjects that move me.  What ever I am passionate about.

    I am capable of writing on almost any subject because I can research information easily enough, and I do it often enough for clients that want blog or website content. However, when it is a subject or niche that I find more personally fulfilling, I feel the quality is that much better.

      Hi Shanmarie, thanks so much for answering.  Yes, I agree concerning the personally fulfilling writing.

    I write what I want to write about. One day it is insurance issues, the next oil and gas and the day after that the mischief my beagles get into. When employed I wrote what needed to be written, both as a news reporter and as a public relations director. Now in de facto retirement, I write what I want when I want with no expectations of getting rich.

      Hi Larry, variety is always great!!!  I really love your stories of the mischief your beagles get into smile  And that is the best way to write no doubt! I'm not too political, as I work in that each day, so I want to not go there when I write.

    I like to write on a good variety of subjects but History is probably my "natural" niche.

      Hi point2make, thanks for answering.  History is a very interesting niche no doubt!!!

    I prefer to write on a particular niche. Having said this, I believe that most excellent writers can be multi-talented if they so wish. I for one can write on most areas. Still, I chose the spiritual.

    There is a particular point in the Spirit that when one reaches it, one automatically sees the uselessness of everything else. Still, interestingly enough, there is yet a higher point when one sees the value and purpose in all things created.

    I am at the point, though, where I am fragile and like the mother, need to protect my young, that is to say, my inner vessel. At this point, the thoughts and practices of the spirit does help most.

      Hello manatita,  thanks for the interesting answer here.  Yes, I chose to try to keep my writing here on HP as relates to specifically my faith and experience in my lifetime as relates to that subject.

    I write about any subject that I know about like gardening, cooking, languages and anything that I know really.

      Hello lies15858, thanks so much for answering.  Yes, it is most beneficial to write about what one knows no doubt!

    I used to. In fact, most of my earlier hubs are about natural health, herbs, most specifically. But as I began to look at other Hubs, and understand what exactly I should be doing, I began to branch out to other subjects. I find I do have to have some interest in what I'm writing about, otherwise it just feels like writing an essay for school. But generally, if I have something that I think is an interesting perspective on a topic, or have done something I want to share (like my recent Hub about my swift visit to Dublin) that I think others might find helpful, then I'll write about that.
    I find if I stick to just a particular niche, then I grow board and frustrated with writing, which is the worst thing I could do to myself.

      Hi ThompsonPen, thanks so much for answering! Yes, one doesn't want to get bored when writing that is for sure!  If it is something you are passionate about, then it would be hard to get bored with it, I imagine.

    I like to be able to write in as many styles, genre's and niches as possible. I do the same with my artwork. I have had people tell me that I should find one particular niche, like my stallions, but then I would be limiting myself to a particular fan base. When I write, I want it to be appealing to readers, but if it does not make me feel good when I am writing it, what is the point? Having said that, I understand that writing as an occupation and writing as a hobby are two different animals. If you did have success with a particular publication that was drawing a fan base, it would be unwise to try and publish something else in a completely different genre. Imagine after Stephen King's success with "Carrie" if he had written a western and ran with that! ( Well let's forget about the Gunslinger) !!

    I started with Automobiles, Spiritual and Business related articles but later found that I had equally good things to write in other domains.

    So, at the moment I am not limiting myself to some niche and I am open to new experiences and new domains to write about.

      Hi Faith Reaper,

      It is for the readers to judge, if I am versatile or not, but I like to do a good job! Thanks for your question and your response!

      Yes, we must follow our passion, which is best to be true to ourselves.

      Hi DDE, thanks so much for answering.  It is always good to write on what one knows for sure.  Variety always keeps things interesting.

    I prefer topics that are Christian but I write on all kinds of things including relationships, family, food, healthy living, mental and emotional health, poetry and more.  I have a wide range of interests and I LOVE to write - that's why I am here.  smile

    LOL!  Faith Reaper, when I saw it was you who had posted this question, I pretty much HAD to answer it, knowing that you've seen enough of my stuff to know I write on every subject INCLUDING the kitchen sink!
    I doubt I could stick to one topic or even one genre if I tried.  There are great writers out there whom I love dearly...but even they generally fill me to satiation after a while.  They pretty much all write according to one formula or another, to the point that reading their work (and no one else's) would be like having to eat just one kind of food from cradle to grave.
    I mean, seriously, I like me some spuds, but even the best French fries start tasting blah after you've eaten 10,000 or so of them....
    And with that in mind, I get to a point in MY OWN writing where I can see/feel the "staleness Sell By date"  coming right up.  My Tam the Tall Tale Teller series was amazing in that it held up for all 120 Hubs in the series, but 121 would have been 1 too many.
    I don't multitask worth beans, but do have to jump around a lot, or else.

      LOL, Ghost32, thanks for the really great answer here smile  hahaha  Yes, I see your point!  Wow, 120 on a series, and HP says do not do a series, but your series kept the reader reading, so 120  VERY interesting tales!
