1 Main broad niche will be less targeted than a sub niche and if you are just starting out then I would say to build your sub niche site first so that you can learn the ropes and not stress about stuffing things up at the start.
I find beginners to be over analytical at first ( I know I was for my first site ..lol ) so just start it and learn.
You can always build on your sub niche later in that main broad niche in the same category.
Or you may just want to try a different sub niche altogether for a first site.
Also, IMHO Main niches will take longer to build up and take longer for the $$ to start coming in.
But they do tend to have a lot of long tail keywords which is a good thing in my opinion.
A site on snail shell painting will be ultra targeted, and a site on green snail shell painting even more ultra targeted.. although I would find it hard to write 40 articles on green snail shell painting.. gee.. is that even a hobby..lol.
In the end Mark always say's you want to turn your site into an authority type of site, so a Main niche is good but be prepared to really work on it and build it up over time. This may take more $$ to do at the start as it's a main niche.
But hey, Go with what your heart and common sense is telling you.. it will all be good in the end.. it's just that some sites take longer to build up than others.
Just my humble little thoughts...
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
