What to Blog About – How to Choose a Topic to Blog About?


Hello and welcome to the video number 3 from
the “Create Your First Blog With Alek” video series. My name is Alek and in this video I will share
with you some recommendations on… What to Blog About? If you watched the previous video where we
discussed about the essential parts of a blog, you already know that… You can start a blog by writing about yourself,
your hobby, your favorite music, your dog… literally anything. While it may be easier to manage one blog
on many topics, it does not always make good sense to do so, because you will end up losing
a focused niche. Having a niche topic for your blog is advantageous
because it brings in loyal readers who are specifically interested in your topic, and
who will bookmark your blog or subscribe to it via rss feeds. Having a focused topic also makes your blog
more attractive to advertisers who are looking for sites with content that is relevant to
their product or service. Writing about a specific topic will also build
your credibility, especially if your posts are referenced by other bloggers writing on
the same topic, establishing your reputation as an authority or expert on that specific
field or topic. So, how do you choose a topic to blog about? The first advice is to choose A Topic That
You Are Passionate About Write about something that interests you.
Do not choose a topic just because you think it’s popular or because you think advertisers
will like it. Readers will sense if you are truly passionate
about what you are writing about. If you choose a topic that you’re not really interested
in, your lack of expertise will show through. No one wants to read something that the writer
is just ‘hacking out’ for the sake of having something to post. It also takes time and effort to become a
popular or successful blogger, and it doesn’t happen overnight. So ask yourself: Am I willing to write about
this theme for several weeks, months, or even years? If not, then you better choose another topic. The second advice is to choose a topic that
you are knowledgeable about If you are knowledgeable in your chosen topic,
then you should not have any problem coming up with fresh content as the days go by. If you are not knowledgeable in your chosen
topic, then chances are you will one day run out of things to say, and that spells the
death of your blog. Find out if you have enough to say about your
chosen topic. You should also have access to good sources and reference materials that
can help you write about your topic. If you have good content, traffic to your
blog will increase. It is also important to consider the topic’s
level of popularity While you should not choose a topic simply
because it’s popular, it is sensible to consider a theme that a lot of people would want to
read about. Doing this ensures that there will be a large
market for your content. Blogs about blogging, technology, politics,
and making money online are among the most popular topics in the net today. Pursue these topics only if you can offer
something more valuable than what others blogs are already offering. It’s all about striking a balance and finding
the right niche. If your aim is to make money out of your blog through advertising or sponsorships,
then… …consider the less popular themes that only
a few seem to be blogging about, but are still broad or popular enough to gather a healthy
following. In short, choose a popular enough topic, but
one that’s not too popular or your blog will be drowned out by the competition. Remember that you want to build a community
among bloggers and not create competition. Advice numer 4 is to choose a topic that is
growing and timeless What good would it be to blog about something
that nobody will care about by next year? When deciding on a topic for your blog, choose
one that has the potential to persist — a theme that even the succeeding generations
will appreciate reading in the future. The fifth advice is to choose a common topic
and give it a twist If you really want to write about a common
topic, then set yourself apart by giving it a twist. Use a different angle or write it
for a specific group of people. For example, everybody seems to be blogging
about the latest apps. But instead of just writing reviews, why not make a blog that
shares how-to’s, tips and tricks, and useful ‘hacks’ for specific apps? Last but not least, choose a topic that has
potential income streams This may not be applicable to everyone, but
again, if one of your aims is to make money out of your blog, then you should consider
a topic that has obvious potential income streams. There are many different ways to earn money
through blogging such as affiliate programs, Google Adsense, etc., but not every topic
is suitable for each of them. Now that you know what to blog about and how
to choose your blog topic, it’s time to think about your blogging platform This is why i invite to watch the next video

about the reasons why wordpress is the most popular blogging platform in the world, and… …why it may be the best and easiest option
for you to create your first blog. If you have learned something new from this
