This week I’m happy to introduce you to Hailey Hudson, who has a very good reason for writing in multiple niches. She writes in niches that she doesn’t enjoy all that much, but that pay very well. She balances the “not so fun work” with blogging in niches that don’t pay as well, but which she loves. Read on to learn more about this week’s MultiTalented Writer.
1. What is your name and where are you located?
My name is Hailey Hudson and I live outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
2. Please tell us about your blog!
I have a blog on my website, but I don’t blog consistently. When I do blog, it’s normally just an interview with another writer. I also have a personal blog that’s for my friends and family where I post updates on what I’ve been doing. At this point in my career, blogging for myself is not the focus. Maybe one day it will be!
3. Why do you choose to write in multiple niches?
I choose to write in multiple niches (I have about half a dozen) because there are many industries I’m passionate about, and because I like always doing something different—I wouldn’t want to wake up and do the same thing every day. Writing in multiple niches allows me to learn about many different fascinating topics. I can also strike a balance between writing in niches that I may not enjoy very much but are very lucrative, and writing in fun niches that don’t pay quite as well.
4. Do you blog and write as a hobby, as a part-time job, or do you do it for full-time income?
I blog for full-time income.
5. Do you blog on your own platform, for companies, for publications, or for a mixture of these?
I write blog posts for companies and publications. I do a lot of content marketing for companies, and I also do journalism and academic writing.
6. Where can we read your writing?
A few of my current favorite clients to write for are The Discoverer (a travel blog), Sitejabber (a consumer protection website), and Just Labs Magazine (a print publication about Labrador Retrievers). I have several clips on my website; my pieces for Craft Your Content might also be of interest to other writers.
7. Why do you believe multi-niche writing is beneficial?
I think multi-niche writing is beneficial for both my sanity and my income. If I’m getting burned out on one niche, I can simply jump to another—which helps me enjoy my work and also diversifies and increases my income.
Thanks Hailey for a lovely interview; we look forward to reading more from you!
