Once you are able to answer these questions it means picture is clear in your mind about selection of your niche.So now you have to do research for selecting your domain and keyword.I will advice you to use keyword planner for getting an idea about your keyword selection.For e.g you have decided to write a blog on "how to do SEO .So type "how to do SEO" in keyword planner and get an idea of the keywords which bring traffic.
