    Does a blog have a chance if it has no niche? My blog is simply a personal record -- totally non-commercial -- of my thoughts, comments, reminiscenses, on all kinds of topics. I don't want to make money at it; it's my hobby.

    To show you what I mean, please take a moment to visit my blog:
    Your help would be much appreciated.
