What Is The Best Type of Blog?

I keep see the same basic question asked on several forums. People wanting to start a blog, but not sure what to start. So, I got to thinking about it and here is what I have to say:

I think the best blogs are niche topic blogs... say you have 3 hobbies: stamp collecting, candle making, and beach combing. You could than make 4 blogs:

1. Your personal Blog about everyday things

2. A blog that offers advice and info about stamps

3. A blog where you post candle making how tos and tips

4. A blog where you post pics of what you found on the beach each day

This is what I do. I create lots of little niche blogs. As a result I have 32 blogs. I have my one personal blog for all sorts of random stuff, than I have a blog about fiction writing, and one for sewing costumes, and one for book reviews... you get the idea right?

By focusing on one topic only, you get a more targeted audience, and better chances of readers who well keep coming back once they've found you. Niche blogs don't get as much traffic, but for me, I'd rather write a niche blog that has value and meaning to someone where they learn something and can ask for advice, rather than a blog that seeks traffic and serves no real purpose at all, and never helps anyone.

What's your take on this? I'd love to hear what you have to say about this post. Leave a comment and share your views!
