Myth - There are just too many people already writing in my niche for it to be worth it.
Reality - I hear this one from lots of people. There is some truth to it. For example, on a recent search at inventory.overture.com there were 3,480,822 searches for relationships in November 2005. Fairly stiff competition, especially when you multiply that figure by the industry standard of 5.
How many hamburger places are there in your town?
At the same time, here's a slightly different question:
How many hamburger places are there in your town? I bet there is a McDonald's and quite a few more.
My point is that even if a niche is crowded, you can still offer your own take or twist on the subject.
The next question is often "So how do I offer my own take or twist on the subject?"
That's a good question. You do not have to try to come up with some gimmicky sounding buzzword, or the here today gone tomorrow fad. To offer your own take or twist, all you have to do is share your heart, your view, your voice. That's all there is to it as there are people out there that are waiting to hear your own unique voice.
So get writing, there are those waiting to hear from you.
