I agree with you that many (most?) Blogs are rather dull - pretty much like being shown someone's holiday snaps, all 100 of them
.....but others will have different opinions - the internet
tail is very long.
And certainly, as you say, having a niche (even if not unique) helps to attract people (if you have good info on the site) - but I think the "secret" is to not really care about how many folks read them (unless making money
out of).....it's what works primarily for you and maybe also a few freinds / family
The reason for my Website was simply that the Seadog 30
was not well represented online (only 140 built - and most owners seem to be older and therefore non-internet capable).....and I simply wanted to post up info (and pics) that would have been of use to me when buying
. Plus I figure that if I ever sell having some info on the internet would help in moving the Seadog 30
from "wot dat?" to a known quantity.
Although perhaps having pictures on the Website
of semi naked women demonstrating an imaginative use of vegetables might not represent the typical Seadog 30 ownership
