Do you love the idea of being a blogger, having people pour over your written words? Do you want to build a following that you can leverage to make money through advertising or by selling products?
You’re not alone. It’s very difficult (probably impossible) to actually count how many blogs there are, but some estimate the number at more than 600 million and more than 2 billion blog posts.
If you really want to start a blog, but are struggling for an idea, here are some topics you could use.
There are many people out there who need to find areas to cut costs. Providing unique and interesting ways to slash personal spending on food, travel, cosmetics, and other household expenses would be useful content that will engage your readers.
To keep your content fresh you could also publish regularly updated lists of discounts and free offers from various brands, including loyalty card promotions, travel deals, and free spins deals from online casinos.
Do you love to travel? Then perhaps you could start a travel blog. Many people visit travel blogs to get inspiration for their next holiday destination, or to just day dream while they procrastinate from work.
If you want to start a travel blog, consider finding a niche , either about a specific country or a particular type of holiday (eg. backpacking, rail journeys, budget travel). This will help you stand out from the crowd.
Local news was always provided by small newspapers, either run independently or part of a larger publishing company. However, many have moved online in recent years as they try to cut costs.
If your small town or village (or part of a city) are not well covered for local news, then perhaps you can look at starting a blog about it. It won’t be of interest to large national or international audiences, but it could attract a good proportion of the local population.
If you enjoy rustling up something tasty in the kitchen, then a food blog could be for you. You can discuss new recipes, food markets and restaurants. You could even add an international element and discuss places you visit that have delicious culinary treats.
When starting a blog, it’s important that whatever you discuss is something that you enjoy. If it’s not enjoyable, it will become a chore for you and will ultimately fail. Starting a blog won’t make you money any time quickly, so you’ll need to stay motivated.
