Remember that a blog should have a main theme and this is where you have to think of a blog topic . 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. Also, the blog topic should be consistent with your domain name as your niche, with the exception that you want to use your own name for your blog site. So let’s move on with the steps.
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. You can put several topics together later on if necessary.
Step 2 Cut down your list – Narrow down the topic list based on two things: what you know and what you are interested in learning more on. It should cut down the list by half. Of course you don’t want to start with a blog topic that’s totally unknown to you. Just try to be safe on this because you don’t want to have a hard time in thinking about having fresh content for your blogs.
Step 3 Elimination, round 2 – A blog topic chosen is just like choosing the winner over at The Voice (blog). Well, it’s just fine for you to eliminate some of the potential topics you’ve selected. Maybe you can save the rejects for a future blog project. In the meantime, make use of the blog topic you’ve selected for your blog endeavors. 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 just like establishing a business wherein you can earn income after all and at the same time you have to ‘spy’ on your competitors and determine if the business you’ve put up is already ‘saturated’. Think of great ideas on how you can surpass your competitors. This is the right timing in which you have to come up with a great blog topic to create a unique and yet feasible niche. For example, you can do a blog on Tropical Miniature Fish Preservation or on being a Sporty Wiccan Mom. Yeah, I just made those up, but it’s an example of how wild your blog topic combination can be.
Step 5 Think ahead – In the future, do you see your blog ahead of the competition? Do you want to eventually earn from your blog? Do you want people to be ‘in the know’? Do you want your blog to be part of a good cause? Ask these questions yourself then know the answers after you’ve know the right methods on how to improve your blog for high chance of success. if this is not the case then your blog might end up on a ‘limbo’ of broken ideas.
Once you’ve figured out your blog topic, writing new entries should be a breeze.For a blogger. there’s nothing more fulfilling than pouring your heart out on your blog while inspiring other people at the same time.
