Rule number one when blogging is to write about something you are well versed and you are passionate. This is important because you must update your blog regularly and if you choose an area in which you have little interest it will soon become a chore.
If you love sports and stay informed on current sports events, a sports blog is right up your alley. You can write about your favorite team or teams, or sports across-the-board. Creating posts would be fun and educational for you as well as your followers. You can report on the latest news stories, highlights of the last game as well as interject a bit of history and trivia. There are millions of sports fans so you should gain a large following quickly. Make sure your content is relevant to today’s events and presented in an interesting way (it helps if it’s entertaining too). Encourage your followers to comment. This will give you ideas for future posts.
Are you good at managing money or finding bargains? If so, you can share your strategies. How to find and use coupons, how to find great deals and how to always pay less than full price would be a great blog and a surefire way to get followers. Your blog would be very popular. Who doesn’t want to save on groceries and other essentials? You will probably even get some great ideas from your followers.
Blogging about personal experiences is always a good idea. If you care for someone with a disability or an illness, you can blog about their struggles and how you have learned to solve problems. Blogging about daily care, latest treatments and ongoing research of a specific illness are great topics. Sharing your daily challenges can help others in similar circumstances. There is comfort in sharing your personal experiences and blogging is a great way to connect with others similarly effected. Blogging about your personal struggles is therapeutic and an added benefit to you.
Parents always have good stories and advice on parenting. Blogging about the joys and difficulties of being a parent is a good way to meet other parents and share experiences. You can blog about amusing and challenging situations, discipline, the latest toy or anything related to children. Ask visitors to your site to make comments about their own stories and experiences. Use these comments in future blogs.
Blogging is great way to connect with many people around the world. How successful you will be depends you. Always post regularly, providing new content that is interesting and entertaining so visitors will visit your site. Never let your blog become stale. Everyone is passionate about something or is an expert in some area that others would find interesting and informative. So, don’t wait any longer. Start blogging today!
