Ask HN: How to find a niche? Do you think being a generalist is not good?
1 point by shivenigma 11 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 2 comments
I was thinking of starting a mailing list but I just can't figure out what will be my niche.

Do you have a mailing list? how did you figured out what is your thing?

Can I just start a list and write about general things that interests me? I suppose it'll be hard to grow that way.

what's your advice?

The book by David Epstein: “Range - Why generalists triumph in a specialized world” might be an interesting read for you.


Thanks. I have it in my list but haven't got to read it yet. Will start after the current one.
