How To Start A Blog For Beginners

Chapter 1

Choosing A Blog Niche

When deciding to start a blog, it’s a good practice to have blog niche ideas to start the process.

There are so many things you could write about, how to do you choose? 

 Personally, I know how easy it is to get stranded on the island of ideas.

Stranded on blog niche Idea Island

It’s important not to get lost in all of the possibilities,  that you never move past this step.  If you have a niche that you are extremely knowledgeable about and would enjoy sharing with the world, that may be a perfect fit for you.  

If you’re like me when I started, you may not know exactly the direction you’re wanting to go, you might start with writing a little bit about everything at first to see what you enjoy.

That is 100% o.k!

Here’s a few of the blog post that I wrote when I started:

?My Journey into the Blogosphere

?How switching banks saved me over $1000

?5 Tips to help you crush your goals

These aren’t the greatest, but they helped me move past my fear of not knowing what direction to start. This just goes to show you don’t have to be perfect and know your direction to get started.  

Another option would be if you want to learn more about a certain topic. You can interview experts on a topic and create a blog about your experience and findings along the way. You can blog your journey of learning a new skill, language or struggle.

I also love  ?Pat Flynn’s way of finding your niche, he suggests writing down your 7 passions, 7 problems, and 7 fears.  Then pick your top 10 to start narrowing it down. Your blog niche ideas should fit into the sweet spot of the diagram below. 

This is what mine ended up as:

Stuff I love: Websites/Social Media
My Skills: Website setup/social media management
What people want: Help setting up blogs and help to generate traffic on social media


How to select a blog niche ideas

Now, if you can answer those three questions and everything aligns you should then see if it will pass the 30 posts test.

See if you can write 30 potential titles about the subject/blog niche.

Having a hard time coming up with 30 post ideas? Then you probably need to move on to your next blog niche idea.

If you breezed through that exercise, like the wind,  you’re ready to move on to the next step!
