Niche-specific blogs are a great way to build a following and to stand out from the crowd. But what if you can’t niche down?
What is a Multi-Passionate Creative?
Multi-passionate is a new term that has been coined to describe a person with multiple passions.
This person can be someone who is a writer, an entrepreneur, and a designer. They have the ability to shift their attention from one passion to another without losing interest in any of them.
The best thing about being multi-passionate is that it allows you to explore your interests and find out what you are best at.
Do You Really Need To Niche?
If you’re a creative who is multi-passionate like me, you don’t have to worry. You can still have a successful blog with multiple topics. You just need to find your own voice and create content that’s relatable to all of your passions, then group your passions into relevant categories on your blog.
We all have different passions and interests in life. We might be interested in fashion, cars and cooking or we might be interested in art history, travel and design. And it’s ok if we don’t know what our niche is. You don’t need to know what your niche is, or even have one at all to start blogging.
I am a multi-passionate creative. I don’t have one specific niche that I’m passionate about, but instead, I have a variety of passions and interests. I love yoga, creating notebooks, printables blogging, WordPress, affiliate marketing, pets, e-commerce, drop shipping, making money online. The list goes on.
I can’t niche down because it’s my nature to be curious and creative. It would be very difficult for me to stick with just one topic when my main goal is to share what interests me most in life with others.

The struggle of being a multi-passionate creative is that it can be difficult to find the right path for yourself. It is hard to know what you want to pursue because there are so many options available.
The best way to find your passions is through trial and error or by trying different thing until you find the ones that fit you best.
Niche blogging is not for everyone. It takes a lot of time and effort to find, research, and write about topics that are relevant to the niche. For some people, it’s just not their thing.
If you search online, there are lots of articles that tell you that you must niche down. I have never been able to do this. I have tried but found it very hard to come up with content ideas on just one subject.
You can still be a successful blogger without niche blogging. You just need to blog about different topics in your free time or get creative with your content marketing strategy.
Does this sound like you? If so, you a more than likely a multi-passionate creative.
Tips For Maintaining Multiple Passions Without Losing Focus & How To Actually Make Money From Them!
Give Yourself Time
It’s important to remember that you don’t need to be making money from your side hustles all the time. It’s okay if you only make a few hundred pounds/dollars a month from them and it can be a lot of fun to experiment with different side hustles.
It can be helpful to set goals. This includes setting specific goals like “I will make £1000 by the end of this year” or more general ones like “I will enjoy myself and try new things.” Setting goals can help you stay motivated and on track with your side hustles.
Have a To-Do List
Note down ideas as soon as they come into your head. Make a list of everything that needs doing and tick each one once completed.
I have a printable to-do list in my free blogging bundle.
If you’d rather not use pen and paper, use a cloud-based task management app like Microsoft To Do.
Choose Your Blog Name Wisely
If you haven’t started your blog yet, don’t tie yourself to one niche if you’re not sure which direction your blog is going to take, choose your blog name wisely. I used my own name so that I could basically write about anything.
Find A Common Theme
Your multiple passions often have a common theme that can be grouped together on your blog. If you look at my blog my main categories are Money, Business & Blogging and Lifestyle. I have recently started low content book publishing and really enjoy it. I can still write about this side hustle on my blog because it will fit in the making money and business categories.
Finally, I have created a few niche blogs and have only kept one of them. None of them has been as successful or made as much income as this blog. So, this shows that you don’t necessarily have to niche down. Do whatever interests you and see how it grows.
