“If you can’t impress them with your argument, impress them with your actions.”
By Amit Kalantri.
Maybe you’re thinking about creating a blog and start writing, but you’re still not clear about what topic you could start. I understand, it’s something that costs a bit.
This is a point of vital importance, that you have to think very well before launching yourself into the pool, since as you will know a high percentage of blogs are left abandoned within the first six months after its creation.
This is due in large part to a hasty choice of the theme of our blog and wrongly choose the niche market.
Many bloggers start with a topic that they see is current and very successful… but that actually has nothing to do with them and does not motivate them personally, it is meat of abandonment.
Therefore, the gurus say that we should look for a theme that has to do with our tastes and hobbies, that we are passionate about. Focus first on passion.
In other cases, although the theme of the blog in principle is something that we like and we are good at, blogs are left abandoned due to lack of inspiration or stagnation when writing posts.
To position ourselves as experts, it is important to know in depth the subject that we are going to deal with.
But we must also bear in mind that there are more current and dynamic issues than others. For example, the world of fashion, technology or makeup are subject to constant changes in trends. Every week comes something new about what we can talk about.
However, there are other types of topics on which there may be a great ideological drought after we have spoken enthusiastically about its main characteristics.
In this post I offer you 15 ideas of topics to start a blog that are triumphing on the internet today, but only to serve as inspiration and from there take some idea to create your successful blog.
These are themes that can be customized according to each one’s tastes: for example, there are not two similar cooking blogs, because maybe one blogger has a weakness for Asian dishes, while the other dedicates his blog to recipes with biological ingredients. In addition, these are themes that never go out of style, and about which there will always be new things to write, since they are constantly evolving.
Find out the proposals:
This type of technological blogs can be dedicated to a particular type of electronic device, such as mobiles, tablets, etc. or to a specific brand, such as Applesfera. They can be focused on the technological part, but also on the consumption or the utilities of certain devices.
Here you have to be very aware of new trends, apps that are coming to market, pre-releases of new products, functionalities, etc. That is, in addition to being a field that you like and that you master, you must also be a little “freak” in terms of new technologies and digital devices.
2.- Latest information
It can also be of a specific theme or be focused on a specific country, etc.
This type of blog is less “blog” and more digital newspaper, because, although there are editorials and opinion articles, usually in an information blog the public also expects to be able to read objective news. An example of this type of blog would be the Huffington Post.
You know, typical dishes, food recipes and especially many “cuquis” pictures of dishes of delicacies that we do not know how they will know but that on the plate are sooo monkeys.
The main topic of a gastronomic blog can be specific or particular, from a blog of desserts, of Asturian gastronomy or vegetarian to a blog of Australian aboriginal recipes.
Everything is possible! An example of this type of blog would be that of Webos Fritos.
Also called “egobloggers”, bloggers who have a blog focused on the world of fashion have to be aware of everything related to the world: the latest trends, fashion magazines, what is today in the windows, trends of the next season … etc.
Obviously, you are also expected to be an icon in your sector and not to go around dressed in tracksuits.
The other of the star themes par excellence within the female blogger community (and also male, although much less).
Within these types of blogs, the latest makeup trends are commented, product reviews are shared, makeup tutorials are shown … And, of course, as in the previous section, a “makeup guru” is expected to look impeccable, no shine or grains or other protuberances. An example of this would be Aishawari’s blog.
6.- “Do it yourself” or DIY
This section is very broad because within the “craft world” or the “do it yourself” we can include practically any topic.
You can have a blog where you talk about how to make your own clothes, whether sewing or knitting; how to create things with recycled materials; how to make your own jewelry and beads … Depending on the type, different DIY blogs will vary a lot.
In sewing, it may be that clothing patterns are shared or sold, in costume jewelery it is also very likely that the creations of the blogger are on sale … Inside the craft world, everything is possible!
Or what is the same, “lifestyle”. This is also a very broad concept, since it depends a lot on the lifestyle of each blogger involved. An example of this type of blog would be that of Blonde Salad.
It is a blog style in theory much more personal, but it is not so much, since the blogger must have some kind of passion or skill to share with his audience. Today hook only with your own personal diary in fascicles, do not sell.
Another hot topic in the current blogging landscape.
Since setting up a blog and taking it to success already constitutes entrepreneurship in itself, anyone who has an experience and a recognized career in this field can start a blog of this type.
There are many examples of this type of blogging with bloggers that started with another type of blog, on any other topic, and that they were learning how to create a valid strategy through the “trial-error” technique.
Today coaching has become fashionable, to the point that there are coaches for everything: food, work, lifestyle, personal problems, etc.
Normally this type of blogs are usually the complement of a coach who works as such in a physical consultation and wants to attract potential clients by promoting their services in this way. Or perhaps offer your services digitally through Skype sessions.
Therefore, this is a type of topic that in many cases does require that you be a professional in the field. It is not enough to be experts. Listen to the interview in the Emprendedores Digitales podcast with Laura Chica, where we talk about what coaching really is.
10.- Babies and children
Normally bloggers who write this type of blog are moms (although there are also some other dad), so many times this type of blog focused on parenting is known as “mom blog.”
This type of topic on child rearing can encompass thousands of subtopics. Here we can include blogs about the first months of the baby, pregnancy and childbirth, the first years of life, infant feeding, the world of baby carriers, breastfeeding, education and stimulation …
Although in some cases the blogger who writes is a recognized expert or graduate in pedagogy or similar, usually is a mother (or father) who tells their own experiences and everything learned during his own career in the exciting world of having a child.
It is a type of blog aimed at offering tips to lose weight.
It is not necessary to be a nutritionist to do this, although then we must specify well that we are not professionals, but someone who wants to share their own weight loss tricks.
In this type of blog we can focus on different topics, such as different low-calorie recipes, explain how the most popular diets work, share exercises and other tricks to lose weight.
There are blogs devoted to the sport practiced by the blogger who writes them, because as we know, the best option is to find a topic that you are passionate about.
The treated sports can be many, but today is very much in fashion running, and blogs that share information on how to plan your workouts, the most appropriate clothes for running, routes, marathons, etc. They enjoy great popularity.
Another of the great themes in the world of blogging.
In addition, people who are passionate about traveling can take their laptop anywhere, and will have the opportunity to continue without problems with their work on the blog from anywhere in the world. They are the true digital nomads.
Some travel blogs tend to be more general, others explore in depth the characteristics of a certain region or country.
Once again, everything depends a lot on the blogger who writes it, and each one is able to give his travel blog a unique personality and touch. As an example we have the blog of viviralmaximo.
Sharing your best photographic creations with the world has never been so easy.
The blog of a photographer must be, first of all, very visual, and also offers the possibility of selling your work to your audience, being able to decide for yourself what are the digital rights that you are selling along with your photograph. An interesting market niche if you know how to differentiate yourself.
Something similar to photography blogs, because the blog of a graphic designer is aimed at making the world known about his artistic creations, although a designer also looks for clients with whom he can close a project to design his corporate website or his blog .
Of course, many graphic designers also sell on their blog templates or pre-designed logos, stationery, sheets, etc.
Of course, there are many more themes to start a blog that succeed. These are only 15 of the most popular at this time.
I hope you’ve found inspiration to start as soon as possible with your own blog! And if you do not have technical knowledge, I’ll help you create your professional blog for digital entrepreneurs.
