On to part 2 of the series. Part 1 of the series covered the basics of choosing a topic. This article offers more in-depth tips to help you decide on a good topic for your blog.

Tips for choosing a blog topic:

  • Write What You Know
  • Make a list of everything you know how to do. It can be either personal (such as housework) or business related. Don't worry about what order just write the list.
  • Write About a Topic You Enjoy
  • Go through the list you just made and circle all the topics you enjoy. One of these circled topics will be your first priority for blogging about.
  • Keyword Research
  • Use a keyword checker to research keywords related to every item that you circled.
  • Choose Your Topic
  • After your keyword research choose a topic that has good keywords, and that you feel you can write many posts on.
