New Niche Project Cropping Up Today

Well, I said I was feeling the twitch to start a new niche website. And it finally pinned me down and forced it’s way through today. I was in the shower and that sneaky little thing crept up behind me and smacked me over the head.

I did some quick preliminary searches and there are some good keywords that look like medium competition, quite a few Adwords advertisers already buying spots, and about 100 content ideas floating around in my head. I opened up Namecheap and found a domain name already… it’s sitting in my cart waiting for this last bit of hesitation to wash away from my mind before I click the checkout button.

Okay… here I go…..

I don’t want to reveal the niche just yet, and I may not reveal it at all… I haven’t decided yet. I’m thinking a new domain and a new niche could be perfect testing grounds and I wouldn’t want to skew the results by blabbing it all over the place.

Update: Yes, I bought the domain name.

    I think it’s a universal law, Retta. It’s the only explanation I have for the phenomenon. Do they have waterproof voice recorders out there? Worth looking into if inspiration continues to strike under the soothing (or invigorating) spray in your shower.

    • I know there’s a waterproof radio and a case you can put your iPod in to mount on the shower wall… but I’m not sure about a voice recorder, that could be something interesting to look for.

  2. I’m working hard at not scratching the twitchy itch right now. I have enough on my plate and I know I can’t start the project I really have a mind to. Must keep going on my 2012 goals instead. But it’s not easy!

  3. I too suffer from Niche Itch but am doing my best (not) to give in, as like Val above I have way too much on my plate. Just the other day I had an idea and did actually go to Namecheap to look up the domain name idea I had but at the checkout – I changed my mind and canceled out. Lol.

    How terrible an addiction. There should be a AA for domain name hoarding. Ha ha.


    • I used to have something like 50 domain names! Even with my new purchase I only have a dozen now 🙂

    I guess it’s the New Year Niche Twitch and it seems a lot of us are afflicted! The last couple weeks I’ve been feeling the same longings. Reminding myself, “Lisa, you have niches, you have niches. Give them some love!” 😉

    • Yes, you have niches! You need to get to Elite brainstorming at Clicknewz and brainstorm some new ideas for those giving those niches some love.
