How to Decide What to Blog About

Blogging has become a popular means of expression for many people. A lot of people go online to connect with others through blogging.

Choose a Topic

What makes blogging so appealing to people is that information usually comes from personal opinions. People usually blog about their views and how they feel.

When starting out on a blog, many people may have a lot of doubts about whether they can do such activity for so long. They might think that they will easily run out of ideas to write about. The important thing to consider before putting up a blog is to know and to choose what to write about.

When deciding on a blog topic, think about the type of person you want to be writing to and what type of blog do you want to be known for?

Don’t choose a topic that you think will attract a lot of readers. You’re the person who will have to do the writing for the blog, and it really helps if you are excited about your subject. Focus on something you are truly interested in.

Don’t choose a topic that you feel personally uncomfortable talking about with others. Find a topic that allows you to speak freely.

Here are some areas to consider that might as well provide lots of ideas for beginner bloggers to write about online.

Life Experience

One of the most interesting parts of blogging is being able to share our own experiences online. Life alone may offer many ideas for the beginner blogger to write about.

Simply choosing to write about your life offer that unique touch that many readers would surely find interesting. Remember, people love to be inspired.

  • Do you have a great story?
  • Do you live an interesting life?
  • Do friends and family come to you for advice about a particular topic?

Knowledge and Expertise

Aside from one’s life experiences, a person’s knowledge and expertise may easily become a comfort zone in which a blogger can have many ideas to write about.

Your accumulated expertise would give you quite a lot of ideas and topics to tackle for years and years.

  • What do you know that you could teach your readers?
  • What topics do you know more than most about?

What significant accomplishments have you had?

  • Lost weight
  • Run a marathon

Hobbies

There’s nothing better to write about than something that you enjoy doing. Blogging about a hobby or something that you truly enjoy doing would be something that would always keep your interest high.

  • What are your hobbies?
  • How do you spend your free time?
  • What do you enjoy reading and learning about?

You would have a lot to share with others about topics that you enjoy doing and the ideas might be endless.


Make sure your topic is  sustainable

Make sure to choose a niche with topics that are sustainable. Can you write content on a regular basis about the topic?

  • Will it be possible to keep new content flowing on this topic?

Once you find the right niche for your blog, start writing great content


Potential Monetization

Many people start blogging as a hobby without looking at monetizing their blogs.  It’s good to know if your blog can produce income eventually.  Whatever niche you choose, make sure that there are monetization opportunities.
