List your 'lighter-weight' Niches for us to warm up with

Gord ·
Hi All, With beta launch on the horizon, I'm finding myself stressing a bit about writing content so I thought it might be nice to have a list of 'easy' Niches-- ones where those of us who aren't prolific content creators can cut our teeth. If you're not sure what I'm getting at, compare a Niche like 'Science' with, say, 'Recipes'. That's not to say there aren't people who make science better than they cook, but I find writing about the latest peer reviewed articles more daunting than...

Hi @Gord I have two niches that are easy-breasy, and can be accessible to lots of people. 1. the Interview (thinking about dropping "the" and making it "Interviews") Obviously i am interested in having Narrative people do their own interviews, but people can also embed interesting youtube interviews BY other people into their posts on my niche, as long as they write their own original title and add at least one paragraph in their own words, responding to the video. My first post on this...

I own Ask Narrative , which is our version of Ask Reddit, where people ask hard-hitting questions like: "If English becomes a dead language like Latin, what English sentences will be quoted by intellectuals who want to look smart?" "What’s the weirdest/scariest thing you’ve ever seen when at somebody else’s house?" "You are physically incapable of ever lying again, but you get $10,000,000. Do you take it, and why or why not?" "What’s the longest you went without bathing?" Thousands of reddit...

I own Tell Your Story I know you have a story to tell. Will you tell it? You can make the world a better place by telling your life experience. You can make a difference and maybe change lives with your story.

Invest. Put $1,000 into this brick and you'll earn 20% in 90 days. At the end of those 90 days, you'll get a pay out on your investment and I'll give you the brick. Ooops. Someone just did that to me. I give them a brick rebate--through the front windshield of their car. :-) I like this niche. It sounds like fun, @Christina Gleason .

I think the misconception you have is that "Science" can't be a fairly lightweight topic. Science is a broad enough topic that it could include articles on the science you remember from 8th grade science class alongside the latest peer-reviewed research. But on my end, I could use some decent content for "Literature", "Libraries and Museums," and "The Lord of the Rings."

Awesome. I have some content already that I could retag as "Interviews."

I could use some content for a new one I bought. "Urban Gardening." And I also own "The Debate Club," which I think could be good for people who want to practice writing content like they would if they were preparing for a debate. Would "Woodworking" be considered lightweight?

I kinda agree about science. I think if somebody says they don't like science, it could just be that they were bored out of their skulls by the rote memorization in K-12 science class. But if they could do an ELI5 kind of article that makes science easier to understand and kinda interesting, that might be helpful for students trying to play catch-up with their science class.

ELI5 also exists, FYI, for an additional niche to tag! P.S. @Gord , it looks like you own ELI5 but ELI5 isn't in the name or description. Put in an edit request so people can find the niche when searching for its shortened form!

Awesome!! I am totally an urban gardener I have a massive city garden, and I was part of the debate club in college. I will think about some content for both of these.

Also a fun thing for the Science Niche would to hold an Adult Science Fair competition. Narrative community could create their best science projects, and document it on video. How fun would that be!?

I guess any niche could be "light weight" if approached the right way. It could be why I didn't list my one niche. I'm not sure it would qualify as "light weight" considering its specialization. I own the Speculative Fiction niche, which can be light weight or heavy depending the author's approach.

I have something I was hoping to post whenever someone buys the Dresden Files niche I suggested, but I see it will fit in your niche as well! I'll move it out of my drafts now.

Not sure how much these would count as "lightweight", but I have "How Stuff Works" and "Mushrooms". I imagine "Mushrooms" could be anything from your favorite recipes that includes mushrooms to how to find wild mushrooms that are safe to eat, to the latest science involving mushrooms. And I have "Aquaponics" if anyone wants to talk about their adventures in aquaponics...

I am interested in learning Aquaponics. I will definitely be a community member of this niche.

Good ones! I notice there's no qualification of good vintage style, so I can post pics of me in some of my 90s outfits, right?

Maybe I should have said "universal" as opposed to 'lightweight'. I love science, have a background in science and can talk science all day long . My spouse, on the other hand, has almost no interest in it whatsoever and will probably never contribute to any science Niche. But I do agree with you. I also have a background in libraries and will definitely be contributing there!

It is hard to believe, but yes 90's is vintage. In clothing Vintage is 20 years or older (although some people refer to clothing that is only 20 years old as retro) but this niche definitely includes 90's grunge, Spice Girl club looks, rave, Hip Hop, and skater styles.

@Emily Barnett Keeping mine organized is the hardest part. I love to buy “homes” for all my pretty makeup babies. This picture is from about two years ago when I began caring about how I treated my expensive obsession and the over-abundance of beauty products that resulted . I will have to post a recent photo of it’s evolution. If it’s an expensive mess it shouldn’t count as a mess at all, but a calculated display of my love of makeup and skin care.

I think among my family's niches, Best of Etsy is probably the 'lightest'. Etsy is a treasure trove of mostly hand-crafted or customised goods - lots of people like to browse the site in discovery mode. Share your best finds here on the niche... I had fun posting three this morning. The format I've been following, and which we'll be trying to standardise, is: Title : Item title inspired from the Etsy listing (follow it as closely as possible, but often best to shorten it) Subtitle : [Cost]...

I'm the owner of the Recipes and Relationships Niches...those should be fairly light weight for content. I would think Recipes would be especially easy, as people can simply take pictures while they prepare and one of the final product.

Hi! I have Photography Competitions. I will be hosting photography prompts similar to Instagrams weekend hashtag projects. Difference is myself and moderators will pick a winner, and winner will win a tiny amount of tokens, on top of hopefully lots of votes. Also. I am looking for moderators still.

Just Curious. Are we just Niche Owners here, Or Moderators & Content Makers too

Emily Barnett ·
No that we are starting to get a real view of the many different topics coming to light, I am curious if everyone in the community now, is just focused on being a Niche holder, or are there some future Moderators in the house as well? Or maybe some people just plan to focus on being a Content Maker? Is there anyone intending to be all three? Let me know...I am interested.

Why are user-written content not indexed on google or other search engines?

Dotman ·
Hi guys! writing "narratives" or "NRVE" or "NRVE narrative" on google, I don't get any feedback on narratives. I consider the indexing of contents to be important to give visibility to the platform and its publishers. What do you think about it? Thank's for answers, Dotman =)

Winston Turnage ·
RSQRD, I like that idea of writing up a plan for the moderators. I think I will do the same We obviously want our niches to have good content, and also as the owners, for our niche's to be able to represent our vision. I will be interested to see how the moderator selection will unfold. I will want to be able to get to know my moderators before I "hire" them (if that is the right word?) as to get the best minds for the niche.
