Congratulations, you have now determined your ‘WHY’. The next step will be to determine what you want to blog about. Of course, this will also depend on your ‘WHY’ but, I’ve put together a list of things you can possibly blog about.
Keep in mind that blogs with a specific niche stand out more than others.
Some questions you can ask yourself when deciding what you want to write about are.
- What are the things you love?
- What do you have tons of knowledge about?
- What do you love to give advice about?
- What do others always ask you about?
Why are you saying blogs with a niche do so much better/more profitable?
For starters, it’s 100 times easier to work with brands when you have a specific type of blog. Take a beauty blog for example. If you are constantly writing about beauty when you reach out to your favorite brand. That brand will head over to your blog to see if you’re a good fit.
If you are constantly writing about beauty, that brand will want to work with you over someone who only writes about beauty every so often. You will fit with their brand and in return, they will want to work with you.
What that brand will see is that you already have an audience that comes to you about beauty products. Therefore your market is a perfect match for
This goes for all different types of niches.
With that being said, it is totally fine if you do want to write a lifestyle blog. It just means you will have to work a little harder when it comes to working with brands.
Here is a list of different types of blogs you can choose from.

One more step!
Take your blog topic and make it even more specific. Say you want to blog about Parenting. What about parenting? Maybe you love to talk about breastfeeding, for example. Create a breastfeeding momblog.
Or maybe you like Dogs. But you have a Great Dane. Create a Great Dane Dog Blog.
I believe you’ve got it from here. I can keep going but I think I’ve made my point. Just remember to be you. Remember to blog about something that you love and can talk about for days on end.
