    Hi all,

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer.

    I'm looking to start a blog that I will personally write on a regular basis. I have a topic that I'm interested in writing about, but my primary motivation is to make some extra money (I also have a full-time job that I intend to keep). My question is whether or not my topic is "niche" enough to make some passive income.

    I won't get into specifics, but the topic is in the mental health realm - a disorder that affects a relatively small segment of the population. When I use google keyword planner, and I type in the name of the disorder itself it has 90,000 average monthly searches. If I type in "overcoming XXXXX", that has 3,000 monthly searches, and "XXXX treatment" has 1,900. If my blog were on the topic of overcoming/treating this disorder, do you think that is niche enough to be a profitable blog?

    I appreciate your thoughts and opinions.
