15 Successful Blog Ideas: Get Inspired And Start Writing
Maybe you’re thinking of creating a blog and start writing, but you’re still not clear on what you should write about. Believe me, I know the feeling. I have been there, actually, I am there every week, every time I am about to write a new post.
So what are successful blog ideas that can help you thrive in your new venture?
It is of vital importance, that you consider what really inspires you before launching yourself into your new creation, since as you will know a high percentage of blogs are left abandoned within the first six months after their creation.
This is due, in large part, to the wrong choice of the theme of the blog and maybe a niche market that is too competitive or maybe too personal.
Many bloggers start with a topic that they see is current and very successful … but that, in reality, has nothing to do with them and does not motivate them personally, and that will lead them to the abandonment of the Blog.
For that reason, you should try to find a theme/niche that has to do with your tastes, your hobbies, something you are passionate about.
Focus first on passion
There are cases although where the theme of the blog in principle is something that we like and we are good at, but the 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 is subject to constant changes in trends. Every week there is something new that we can talk about.
In this post, I’d like to offer you 15 ideas of topics to start a blog that is succeeding on the internet today, and hopefully, it will serve you as an inspiration and from some of these ideas, you will be able to create your successful blog.
They are themes that can be customized according to each one’s tastes: what I mean is, for example, there are not two similar cooking blogs, because maybe one blogger has a passion for Asian dishes, while the other dedicates his blog to recipes with vegan food.
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.
15 Ideas For your blog
The main theme of a gastronomic blog can be specific or particular, from a blog of desserts, of Italian cuisine or vegetarian to a blog of Australian aboriginal recipes and African dishes.
Everything is possible! The sky is truly the limit with this one because you can share your grandma secret recipe or your own creation and with beautiful photos next to a recipe, trust me, there are always people out there looking for something new to cook.
This type of technological blogs can be dedicated to a particular type of electronic device, such as mobile phones, tablets, etc. or to a specific brand, such as Apple or Samsung.
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 in a field that you like and that you master, you must also be a little “geek” in terms of new technologies and digital devices.
Also called “ego bloggers”, 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 do not go around dressed in tracksuits.
4.- Current 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.
5.- “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 jewelry, it is also very likely that the creations of the blogger are on sale … Within the craft world, anything is possible!
The other one of the star themes by excellence within the feminine blogger community (and also masculine, 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 fashion section, a “makeup guru” is expected to look impeccable, without glare or grains or other protuberances.
This is also a very broad concept since it depends a lot on the lifestyle of each blogger involved.
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. Nowadays, just hooking up with your own personal diary in fascicles, it does not sell.
8.- Babies and children
Also called “parenting”.
Normally the bloggers who write this type of blog are moms (although there is also some other dad), so many times this type of blog focused on parenting is known as “mom blog.”
This type of subject on childcare 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 qualified in pedagogy or similar, usually it is usually a mother (or father) who tells his own experiences and everything learned during his own career in the exciting world of having a child.
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 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 is usually the complement of a coach who works as such in a physician consultation and wants to attract potential clients by promoting their services in this way.
Or perhaps offer their services digitally through Skype sessions.
Therefore, this is a type of topic that in many cases does require you to be a professional in the field. It is not enough to be experts.
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 different well-known diets work, share exercises and other tricks to lose weight.
Another major theme in the world of blogging.
In addition, people who are passionate about traveling can take their laptop anywhere and will have the possibility 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 your travel blog a unique personality and touch.
There are blogs dedicated to sports 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 sports treated can be many, but today is very much in vogue 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.
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 know about his artistic creations, although a designer also looks for clients with whom he can close a project to design their corporate website or 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.
