One of the first things that we talked about when we started this series on niche blogging is how to asses if a niche is already crowded. The idea was to choose a niche that is not too saturated. However, it does not mean that you should not enter a niche if it is already crowded. If you think that that niche is what you are best at, then by all means, create a niche blog focusing on that topic! Although admittedly, it could be more difficult to create a place for your blog because of the competition, there is still a chance for you to create a name for yourself.
One of the first things that you have to remember in order to succeed in a crowded niche is to establish connections. A crowded niche means a LOT of bloggers talking about your topic. This means that there are other bloggers out there who could benefit from you and vice versa. As such, making connections is one of the most important things that you could do to help establish your niche blog despite a crowded niche.
Another important consideration is for you to create a unique style and stand. In a crowded niche, this would be a little bit more difficult. With so many bloggers writing about the same topic, you just might run out of angles to present the topic. Then again, I think that combining your topic with your different ideas and points of view can always attract a specific audience. Pour all your energy into making your posts unique and you will have better chances of attracting readers.
