The problem of choice dominates every aspect of our life. Talking about blog site topics, we could just say “pick any”. But it is not as easy as it seems. Choosing the proper blog topics and ideas is a big responsibility. If you get the wrong one you’ve got a chance to fail despite of all your noble intentions. Of course, you won’t be the next Mark Zuckerberg, but reasonable approaches are always rewarding.

There are some common mistakes that people usually do when choosing the topic to write their blog about:

  • Hell is paved with good intentions. Bloggers try to please everyone but please nobody;

  • Bloggers pick the subject that is the most “marketable” to their opinion;

  • They choose overambitious topics.

If you can’t decide whether you want to start general blogging site or niche blogging resource, choose the latter one. When you choose some specific subject, you can easily position yourself as a Guru. Ok, if you are not a Guru yet, do your best to become one. The benefits of leading your blog on a specific topic are obvious: you stand out from the crowd and draw narrow-minded attention of certain target audience, but not just random readers. By the way, do you know that search engines likes niche blogs better than general blogs? If the search engines index your niche posts regularly, they rank your blog higher in their searching results.

Clue 1

The question that every future blogger has to ask himself: “What am I good at?” If you have no idea what to write about, make a list of your hobbies and creative ideas. Be spontaneous. Write a minimum 15 blog topics. The more you come up with, the better! Try to categorize your choice, make the balance between too wide and too narrow topics.
