Notes from Chris
Almost a decade after starting, David’s digital magazine is the most read website for hockey goaltending, and a large part of his success is due to his focus on a specific aspect of hockey rather than trying to cover everything in that field. Even 5-10 years ago, there were a ton of blogs and resources about hockey in general, but none of them focused exclusively on goaltenders and goaltending.
Do you have an interest you’d like to turn into a side hustle? It’s not too late! You can still create a side hustle that will stand out, but here’s what helps:
1. Write down your interest and draw a circle around it.
2. Start drawing lines off to the side with related, more specific topics.
For example, if you chose video games, you might branch out by writing: classic video games, arcade games, modern mobile games, online multiplayer games, and so on.
You can also start looking at categories: sports games, role-playing games, games from a certain studio, under-appreciated games, etc.
3. Then, try combining two or three of these topics.
Example: Under-appreciated RPGs from the early 90s—Ultima: Worlds of Adventure 2, I’m looking at you!
4. Become what’s known as an authority site and focus on delivering quality content.
5. Soak up all the glory! (Oh, and also set up revenue sources as you go along.)
If you’re not familiar with gaming, the point is this: there are a lot of ways to stand out by focusing on something interesting and relevant to a certain community.
You might think that such a thing is impossible these days, but it’s definitely not too late.
