06/11/2017

You are planning to start a blog or may have created the one already, but have no idea how to figure out your blog niche or find blog topics to write on. If you ever got stuck in the net of what to write on my blog? then this post hopefully guide you to the right direction

Note that, this is not about a list of topics and ideas but a mini guide to help you pick your own path.

Breaking down few steps into small chunks below.

What to write on blog?

Think it through

The first and foremost action for you is to find out the answers to these main questions to get started. Don't go on writing anything that doesn't come under the answer of these questions, ever. Because that's never gonna benefit you in long run, neither to your audience.

What are your goals? You have a blog, but don't have any goal behind it. Then we can say that you may be confusing the reason to blog altogether. You must hold an intention and promote your content solely on the basis of it.

What topics you feel easy and comfortable writing about? If I give you a paper and pen to write anything you can, what you'd write? what you'd passionately talk about without balking? What topics you think are easy going for you?

What topics personally connect with you and your expertise? Having knowledge and expertise about what you have to write, make a big deal connecting with your readers. Also, when the topic connects with your skills and experience, it will be a lot more easier and fun to write on.

You'll never know until you try

I made the jump to start food blogging in 2013 because that's what I enjoyed doing, talking and learning about. Frankly, that was an only solution available when I baked 3 times a week to kill boredom. And you know what? I figured out so much from just starting a blog to document the recipes. I figured I have a knack for design and business in me. It led me to experience things that I would have not been doing if I hadn't started at the first place. Choosing the blogging platform, naming + branding the blog, moving to Blogger and touching HTML/CSS was few of many steps that taught me so much and knock my interest up! The point to take here is, give it a try. You will never gonna know anything by sitting on your work desk all day and over thinking about it.

Put yourself out there

Start with finding answers to the questions explained above and you'll find a right direction to go with, you'll eventually find you niche, your mission on the way. You'll get there for sure and adjust as you go. Start writing, exploring and be true to yourself. Remember, not everyone get it right at once, even the big bloggers go through several rebrands and that's okay. Nothing stuck forever, people evolves their ideas and mission do too.
