But What Do I Blog About?
So now you know you’re ready to think about creating a blog. But you’re wondering what in the world you’re going to write about. There are so many possibilities! Figuring out what to blog about can be easy or hard.
There are so many things you can do with a blog: document your life, explore a hobby, or express a passion for something you’re really into.
Here are some things consider when you start a blog:
• Choose a subject that really interests you.
Don’t try to choose something that you think looks good or that you think will attract a lot of readers. You’re the one who will be doing the writing, and it especially helps if you’re enthusiastic about your subject. That passion is what will shine through to your readers and it will attract the types of people who are also passionate about that subject.
• Decide what topics are off limits.
Keep in mind that your blog is a public space on the internet and anyone can come across it as they surf around. Do you really want your mom or your boss to read all the details about what you did last night?
• Think about your potential readers.
Are you looking to gather a very large following or are you looking to keep it small? What types of things will they find value in? What can you show or teach them, or even ask them to get engagement on your blog?
For most bloggers, being successful means to be continually growing an audience of interested readers – and have them engage with your blog by leaving comments and being involved in discussion. Think about ways to engage them in order to have an active, thriving blog.
On our next post we’ll talk about topic ideas for your blog.
