i am on the starting blocks and have even written an article (pat on the back)...

but now a few doubts come to my mind.

From the beginning:

I come from germany and bought an expired domain some time ago that has a pretty cool name ( translated into english it would be something like "buygood.com" .

The plan is that I want to build an affiliate blog there. The topic should be "high-quality" products. Ecological, sustainable, valuable, built to last... good niche and very confusing for most people.. I wanted to write 4 big guides per month in which I present one product group each (How do I recognize good olive oil... How do I recognize high-quality furniture...)...

For a little variety (And backlinks and traffic...) I wanted to introduce smaller companies and their products... everyone who produces something small and high quality and interesting...

But my problem is now... There are simply too many different product groups... It seems totally confused and crazy if I first write something about oil and then about furniture... that would only make sense if I had a large team and could really quickly write 200 high-quality articles on as good as any topic... and i don't want that

My idea now is somehow to focus on one or two things... but I don't know what to focus on...

Food and household goods? "kitchen" and "bathroom" ? These are two things that are very much in demand...

Do you have any ideas ?

Pick something that most people would buy after doing some research online.

This should probably be something that has a higher price tag and/or a bigger consequence of the wrong choice. Important and long-term purchases.

Furniture fits those criteria better than food. Also cars, all kinds of tech products, financial products, designer items, etc.

Look at the competition in other niches to learn what they're doing and what works for them.

And definitely laser focus on a niche. This should be a pretty competitive market, you won't have a chance to stand out doing everything at once.

Good Luck!

Pick a group and split it in subgroups.
For example: furniture could be splitted in bedroom furniture, desk furniture, bathroom furniture, living room furniture, ...

Ps. If you are going to blog about furniture, send me the link of your website. :)

You wrote one article and are having doubts? Just stop now and don't waste your time. Go back to whatever was making you 5-700 a month and pump that number up. Shiny object syndrome, my guy.
