We will focus on a few popular blog post topics to write about.
Blog About Food
Food is always something to blog about because there are so many categories to choose from. With food, something interesting will always be there. Everyone loves to eat and therefore, would want to know about some of the most famous recipes available online. If you love to cook and have a few homemade recipes in your back pocket, you can certainly blog about it. You can also try blogging about your favorite food and any experiences that YOU have with that particular dish. This will make your blog even more relatable to all the foodies out there.
Blog About Traveling
Everyone seems to have a travel blog. Travel blogs are fun and mix well with subtopics. Budget traveling, travel plus food, and travel plus art… travel bloggers can pretty much do anything as long as they are constantly taking great pictures of their adventures. This is another topic that would serve you well in terms of content this year and beyond. If you love to travel alone or with friends and family, you can easily take pictures and post them online along with a short or lengthy description of your experience. This content often appeals to people waiting to hop on the next flight for a weekend adventure. You might even end up collaborating with other travel bloggers down the line.
Blog About DIY
If you’re not fond of traveling or eating, you can easily focus on teaching others about a certain procedure through your blogs. These are usually DIY articles or tutorials. For example, you can blog about how to fix a particular problem that others often have around the house. This will take some research so you’re not writing about an issue only specific to you. You get to tell the people about certain carpentry projects for the home. Any arts and crafts that you might have done yourself should also pique their interest. It should be fun educating your audience, and explaining how you made such projects.
Specific Topics To Write About
You can try current topics or blend some of your favorite topics together to create something special. Other popular topics with growth opportunities include:
- Spicy Dessert Recipes
- Offbeat Fashion
- Future Technology
- Tiny Home Decor
- Frugal Living
- New RV Parents
- Dog Fashion Tips
The topics above are unique and wacky… because why not! You have so many opportunities to find what works for you, so don’t be afraid to experiment. For example, you may want to focus on Fashion… don’t stop there. How about dog fashion or western fashion? You need to niche down, so you can find your audience because being too general will not work these days.
