So you’ve been think about starting a blog. But… you’re still stuck on the first step. The million dollar question you can’t answer in your head is “What should I blog about?” You’re not the only one. Some people struggle with discovering what exactly they’re good at. Some people are good at multiple things and can’t just choose one. Let me throw you some popular blog topics, and you can see which one/ones fit you the best.
The beauty industry is EXTREMELY broad. Since this is the case, there are so many subcategories that you can start a blog about. A good idea when jumping into the beauty blog world is to narrow your approach. For example, if you’re vegan you could focus solely on vegan cosmetics and skincare. If you have acne prone skin, talk about cosmetics and skincare suited for acne and blemishes. Find your subcategory that personally fits you and focus on that to establish your blog!
If you like to travel to different places, enjoy trying new activities and trying new foods, a travel blog is right up your alley! If you’re interested in starting a travel blog, you should definitely start with capturing great pictures and videos. You can also write reviews about the restaurants that you try as well as the venues. How was the food? What dishes did they have? How was the service? Was the menu reasonably priced or luxury priced? What activities, museums and other sights are in the area? The list goes on and on!
If you find yourself obsessed with cooking videos and finding new recipes on Pinterest, then consider starting a blog in cooking! Cooking blog topics include meal prepping, keto diets, paleo diets, slow cooker meals, and more. The list goes on and on! You can also start by finding recipes online and trying them out yourself to see how they turn out. Then, you can branch off into showing your audience your own recipes! Try some new dishes you’ve never made. Just get creative with it!

If you have experience with children of multiple ages, you should definitely share your knowledge with new and learning moms.
Do you have a way with words? Great at English and literature? Poetry is an amazing niche that many people do not think of when it comes to blogging. There are so many different types of poetry. If you have a message that you’ve been looking for a way to express, poetry is a great way to share those thoughts.
