Are you thinking about creating a blog? Before you pull your hair over cPanel settings and HTML codes, you should first have a clear idea of what you want your blog to be about. Many people are drawn into blogging but aren’t sure about what they want to write about. If in case you are quite clueless then red on my friend. Here now are the guidelines in selecting the best blog topic.
A blog topic is the main theme, if you will, of a blog . This is where your brain would work with regards to creating various blog entries. For instance, your blog site is about parenting, you have to provide tips and ideas regarding parenting. The blog topic also plays a role in domain nomenclature for consistency, unless you decide to use your-own-name-dot-com. So, let’s get started.
Step 1 Laying out the plan – Your option now is to lay out your best choice for your plan. It is a great idea to take note of all the topics you would want to consider without compromising its doability (you will determine that later on). Remember that it’s always an excellent idea to open out all of your options for your blog topic. Try to combine the topics you’ve think of then decide later in choosing the best.
Step 2 Elimination – The next part of the plan is to cut down your list with these two options: what you already know and what are the things you still want to know more about. It should cut down the list by half. Remember that it’s not a good idea to create a blog topic that’s totally new to you. Try to be on the safe side so that you won’t have a hard time coming up with fresh content.
Step 3 Narrow it down round 2 – Choosing a blog topic is just like choosing the American (blog) Idol. Eliminating some of the feasible blog topics is simply a part of the guidelines. Perhaps you can save some of the topics you’ve rejected for future projects in other blogs. But in the meantime, decide on what type of blog you’d like to pursue. Some examples of blog types are: tutorial blog, journal type, information blog, photo blog, ‘me’ blog and art blog. After choosing the ‘one’ (blog topic) it time for you to eliminate the other lists you are trying to pick.
Step 4 Find your niche – So it’s now the right time to have some research regarding your niche after choosing your blog topic. This is where you will put up your online business(Indeed, blogs can make you money after all) and see your competition online if it is quite saturated already in the online market. Think of ways on how you can stand out against your competitors my friend. This is now the right time to come up with an excellent blog topic that would create a unique niche. For instance, you can make a blog about the ‘end of the world preparation tips and ideas’. Well, these are just some of the ideas you could think of and it’s just about how wide and wild your imagination is in creating a blog topic for your niche.
Step 5 Be ahead of the competition – Are you thinking about how you can be ahead of the competition in the future for your blog expansion? Are you decided to make money with your blog? Do you want to inform people? Do you want your blog to be part of a good cause? Ask yourself these types of questions so you can plan out your blog’s future development at its early age. if this is not the case then your blog might end up on a ‘limbo’ of broken ideas.
