I have been into gaming for years, and unlike what a lot of people say, I believe there's a lot of opportunity in the gaming industry. Especially for gaming blogs.
Don't try and make a generic gaming blog offering news, as there's so much competition out there. Be different, write fantastic reviews. Of course there are many review sites out there and they'll have much more traffic than you at first.
But fear not, if you know what you're talking about, your blog will be noticed!
This is my spare blog in which I am going to try something else. I will do a review of blogs. Why not? There's so many rubbish stuff churning out all the same nonsense, it makes it hard to find something worthwhile. But as I said, your knowledge and writing skills will bear fruit.
And you have social media to help you leverage your blog. Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Pinterest are amazing tools that will you reach the masses. It will take time, and you shouldn't expect a lot of traffic or income for a few months, but with hard work and knowledge, you can do it.
A blog I like actually writes about gaming and mining cryptocurrencies. I know that will p*ss some gamers off, haha, but I mine, and I think it's good to know about it. It's a great platform, they have a gaming and mining store and their reviews are great.
For me, at least they're doing something a little different, and with mining being a very small niche, it could make it easier for them to crack the traffic headaches that any new blog suffers from. Although, it could have the opposite affect. With it being such a small niche, it might not garner much traffic at all.
It's not easy creating a blog, but with great gaming insights, creative writing skills, and an awareness to do something different, it could be a success for you.
I will keep writing and offering advice. Watch this space...
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
