Are you struggling with interesting blog topics? We’ve all been there, some of us more than others. It’s tough when you want to start creating an online empire and have no clue what you want to write about.
Unique ideas are everywhere, but it doesn’t make it any easier when you just starting a blog. That’s why I’ve decided to put together a list of blogging topics or blog ideas to help you get your juices flowing.
I’ll even give you some more tips on how to find some more if none of the ones I share make you excited. So grab a cup of coffee and hold on because you’re about to see how easy it can be.
I’ll also share my personal experience of what choosing the wrong topic can mean.
But first you need to ask yourself a couple questions before you start building your online empire.
What Kind of Blog Should I Start?
Are you wanting to start an affiliate marketing blog? If you’re not familiar with affiliate marketing, then check out this recommended training to get some free training and understanding.
Maybe you have your own products and want to eventually set up a shop or sell digital courses?
Or maybe you’re like me and plan on creating multiple blogs that eventually bring you money?
Sit down and think about this question, because it will help you decide what type of topic you should choose.
The number one question I see popping up in Facebook groups is what should I blog about? Most new bloggers struggle to find the right niche for their website.
I totally understand the frustration.
When I started this blog I had no clue what topics to write about. I started sharing my knowledge of WordPress and then I realized that I enjoyed talking about making money blogging and creating passive income streams.
After all, that’s what I really love and why I am working on building my online empire of passive income streams.
Just know, the niche you choose today, may not be the blogging niche you have a year later! That’s okay, most successful bloggers have pivoted their blog as some point.
To be a successful blogger you need to constantly be honing and refining your niche topic. Eventually, you’ll find that sweet spot that you love writing about and best of all makes you money.
The more focused you can make your blog, the better you can grow your income. This doesn’t mean that you can’t write about several topics on one blog, you can. But just know that you’ll have faster success with a blog that isn’t spread out among a bunch of topics.
How to Find Interesting Blog Topics to Write About
If your blog is already set up and you’re looking for inspiration for new blog posts, I always use these places to help me come up with inspiration.
Pinterest: This platform is great for helping me come up with unique ideas for new posts. Plus you can see what’s working for other bloggers and write about the same topic with your own unique spin.
Quora: I’ve never really been a fan of it, but recently I’ve been paying attention to the questions people have been asking. This Q/A platform can help you come up with a huge pool of ideas that people need help with.
Competition: If you spend time reading other blogs, it’s not hard to see what your competition is doing. I’m NOT saying that you should copy them, you’ll have more success if you do your own thing. However, there’s nothing wrong to use other blogs to help you come up with some great ideas for your blog.
Coming Up With Post Ideas for Beginners
What if you still haven’t started your blog? Coming up with ideas that make money can be so confusing. Most people, myself included will search for topics that are proven to be profitable.
That’s not a bad thing, after all, you do want to make money. But if you’re not interested in the topic, you’re going to have a HARD time making money.
It takes a long time for a blog to become profitable. If you can’t see yourself writing 50-100 blog posts in that niche, you shouldn’t start it.
Don’t worry, I’m going to give you a huge list of topic ideas that will help you get started.
142 Blog Topic Ideas With Profitable Sub-Niches
Unlike other lists, I’ve taken the time to put this huge list of blogging ideas and sub-topics together for you. I had no clue what a subtopic or sub-niche was when I first started.
I ended up wasting too much time chasing niches that were too competitive. I recommend using a keyword tool to make sure that there isn’t too much competition.
Hopefully, this site helps you start your own affiliate website. Don’t forget to check out my step-by-step tutorial on setting up WordPress.

How to Choose The Right Topic
I know that a lot of people tend to chase the ones that are the most profitable. Heck, I’ve done that before in the past and I can tell that you’ll likely fail.
You’re going to need a lot of content for your blog and if you don’t enjoy the topic or are not interested in it, that’s just asking for trouble.
It doesn’t matter if the topic is profitable if you hate writing content because you don’t enjoy it. Your blog will feel like work and before you know it, you’ll drop it like a bad cold.
Instead, choose something that you really enjoy or want to learn more about. You don’t have to be an expert in the niche, but you should have some interest in it.
As I mentioned above, you need to be able to write 50-100 blog posts on that topic. Otherwise, find a different one, there are plenty to go around and I have no doubt that you’ll find something you love.
My Biggest Mistake
I’ve been in positions where I just chased the money and didn’t care whether or not I liked the niche. Yes, I was able to make some income, but I hated writing for my blog.
I ended up wasting a ton of time chasing something that had great profitability but I hated it.
Don’t do that, instead focus on something that will make you money but you actually enjoy working on. Most every niche has potential to make money.
Imagine if you can create a digital asset that can bring in $2,000 – $4,000 passive income. If you can create one website that makes money, what’s to say that you can’t create two or more?
That’s the attitude that I’m taking from now on. In fact, that’s the reason that I started my other blog. I figured if I can create more passive income streams instead of just relying on one, I’ll be able to sleep better at night.
Final Take Away
There’s no better time than now to start a blog and create passive income. While you won’t see a return on your hard work right away, but the seed you plant today has the opportunity to earn you passive income over time.
If you’re ready to take control of your of your future, then you need to put in the work today. If you’ve never had a blog before, be sure to check out my simple simple tutorial on start a blog step by step.
