Are you considering starting a blog? Would you like to blog about a hobby or would you like to create a blog that will make you money? Or perhaps you would like to do both! So what can you blog about?
There are so many different topics that people blog about and some people just blog for fun while others actually make a full time income from blogging. Here are just some ideas of the sort of things that you can blog about.
Do you have a hobby that you love to spend time doing and spend time talking about? Blogging about your favourite hobby is a great way to build up your blog as you talk about something that you are passionate about. You can build a blog about scrapbooking, stamp collecting, model cars or any other hobby that you might have. Through your blog you can connect with other people that enjoy the same hobby and will love to read your experiences and thoughts.
Do you love animals? Do you have pets? Perhaps you have a particular dog breed and you take your dogs to show competitions. Having a blog about your dog, cat or other pet is a great way to keep a diary of the events and achievements that your pet has, or just the daily enjoyment that you get from your pet.
If you are going on a trip a travel blog is a great way to keep your friends and family updated on your trip experiences. Vacations are such a great experience and a blog will help you remember the experience for years to come when you look back over your posts and reminisce about your holiday.
You can blog about a business that you have or you can start an online business with your blog. Blogging is a great way to promote your business online and gain new customers.
You can even just have a personal blog that is about nothing more than your life journey. You can talk about everyday events, your feelings, your love life, your kids, your sports, you can talk about absolutely anything.
These are just a few ideas of what you can blog about and the list is never ending of topics to choose from. So have a think about what you like to do and what you are passionate about and start a blog. You can add some Adsense ads or affiliate programs to your blog to monetize it and you will be surprised at the extra pocket money your blog can give you.
If you are considering starting a blog for the purpose of making money then the first question you will be asking yourself is what niche you should choose for your blog.
There are basically two options when choosing a niche and they are to decide whether you want a niche based purely on profitability or whether you want a niche based on something you are passionate about. In this article we will take a look at both options so you can then decide which road to take.
Option 1 – Choose a Niche That Is Profitable
If you want to take this option and choose a niche based on profitability, then you need to do your homework. Firstly, you need to find which niches are most profitable and one way to do this is to go to Clickbank and see which products are selling well.
Niches that tend to be popular and profitable are:
• Make money niche
• Weight loss niche
• Fitness niche
• Health related niches
• Relationship niches
These are just a few of the profitable niches and you will likely find many more. The one problem with profitable niches is that they are usually also the most competitive niches. So to do well in one of these niches you really need to do some good keyword research and find a keyword phrase that doesn’t have too much competition but one that still has a lot of searches per month.
Option 2 – Choose a Niche That You Are Passionate About
This option is much easier in choosing your niche because you already know what you are passionate about. However, if you want to make money from your blog then you need to do some research and see what monetization options are available for that niche.
With any niche you can always add some Google Adsense ads to your blog, so even if there are no products to promote as an affiliate you should still be able to make a little bit of money with Adsense.
To build a blog about something you are passionate about can include blogs about hobbies, sports, fitness, children, health or many more. The list is endless to what topic you can blog about and I’m sure there is something in your life that you are passionate about.
The advantage to blogging about a topic that you are passionate about is that it is much easier to write about something you love and you are likely to stay motivated longer and keep working on your blog long term.
You will also want to see how much demand there is for your niche and how many people search for it every month. If there aren’t many searches then you aren’t likely to make much money even with Adsense.
So unfortunately not all niches can be profitable niches but you will find that most are. If there are no digital products to promote in your chosen niche then look at physical products and sign up as an affiliate to companies like Amazon and Ebay.
Blogging is fun and creating a blog on a niche that you are passionate about will help you to enjoy blogging and have fun while you earn some extra money. But if you are more serious about a blogging business then choosing based on profitability is a good option. Then again, there is no reason why you can’t do both, you’re not limited to just one blog and the more blogs that you have the more income you can earn.
