This myth is both true and false. Yes, it’s true, you can always start a new blog. Sometimes, that’s the best way to go. Leave the old one behind, or sell it. But this often involves starting from scratch, especially if your new blog goes in a completely different direction.
However, it’s also false. Yes, it’s good to have a niche to focus on when you’re building up your online presence, But it’s OK to diversify, and in fact, it’s necessary. You don’t want to dedicate yourself to only a single thing. Yes, some niches are very profitable, but will they always be?
It’s good to have some fallback topics related to your niche. This is not only for when you’re stuck, but to have content available in case you find you need to change direction, whether for financial or personal reasons.
And believe it or not, you can completely change direction if you’re not feeling the blog anymore. You don’t even always have to rebrand. But rebranding is OK. The important thing is to not abandon all your hard work in building up your presence.
So, yes, you actually can change your niche and even your blog name and still be OK. Sometimes, though, you do have to start over. But believe it or not, people switch niches and names all the time, and they’re doing fine.
So, if what you’re doing isn’t working or you just want to change direction, don’t feel pressured to start over. You can shift things around, just like you can with so many other things in life.
