    Writing/Blogging myself into a new job/industry?

    I joined an online writing challenge to give myself a kick in the pants. I want to write about FinTech (financial technology). I'm studying so that I can become a researcher this industry. The sector is dominated by people who don't look like me, and I thought writing as I learned could give me a little edge. So, I thought I'd start a blog. That has been a nonstarter because I can't decide on an audience based on my experience level. I don't know anything!

    I've considered writing a 'basics' series for newbies, opinion pieces on industry happenings, and I am brainstorming other types of pieces. I do not want to write a personal blog about the process of learning because I don't think that fits with being a mature student. Have you written your way into a niche successfully? How did you define your audience? What do you think I should keep in mind? Is it possible to under/overthink this? I...I....uh, Thank you!

    Also I am new. Be brutally gentle.
