Welcome to Day 2!
Determining what to blog about can seem difficult at first, but I promise it’s not!
I always recommend creating a blog around a topic that you are passionate about, that you are an expert in, that you like, or something else along those lines.
This can make blogging more fun instead of a chore.
You can blog about several topics or you can blog about one specific thing such as personal finance. I even recently had someone email me about starting a blog about lizards.
Yes, your blog can be about anything and/or everything. It’s entirely up to you.
You can monetize any type of blog too, so do not let that fear hold you back. There are many, many ways to monetize blogs, even the most unique ones!
Here are some possible blog topic ideas. The list doesn’t end here either. Choose one, all, or some. It’s all up to you.
Fitness and health;
Inspiration and advice;
Electronics; and more!
That’s the beauty about having a blog. It can be anything you want it to be.
Should a person be an expert or have a degree in the niche they choose?
A question I often receive is if a person should be an “expert” in their niche before they start a blog. I receive this question all the time and, due to that, I definitely think it’s something that needs to be discussed.
I don’t think you need to be an expert or have a degree in most cases when it comes to blogging.
I know many personal finance writers with blogs that track the financial mess they got themselves into. They don’t have financial degrees but are doing very well for themselves and help many people with their blogs. Many times readers just want to hear from you, follow a real person’s journey, read about how a real person made it through a problem, and so on. This is a great example of why degrees are not always needed.
However, if you are wanting to give advice about legal or tax matters where you could get someone in a lot of trouble if you tell them the wrong information, then, yes, you should probably be an expert.
