Either you are planning to start your first blog or moving to setup your next blog, your first headache is choosing a blog topic. This is the very initial stage of blogging where most of the bloggers either stuck on the way or choose a wrong way. Before some days I was thinking to start a new blog (basically for a test purpose) and searched in Google to see the list of most popular blog topics for my next test blog. I was shocked to see there was not a single genuine list from where I can choose my blogging topic. I found only some common list (includes top 10 blogging topics) which are not updated. Thus I thought to make a list by myself. This list is the result of my brainstorming and a little bit of Google search.
Okay let’s jump into the main topic which is discussing about the best blogging topics to start a blog. First of all, ask yourself these 3 questions:
Q1. What is your hobby or topic that you are interested in?
Q2. What do you want to learn in future?
Q3. What is your main purpose behind starting a blog?
You next action completely depends on the answers of these 3 questions. Therefore, never start a blog before getting the answers of these 3 questions.
Now let’s break down the reasons behind asking these questions. Firstly, you must choose a blog topic in which you are interested or have vast knowledge or is related to your hobby. Believe me my friend, if you choose a topic that has none of above quality you cannot continue your blogging journey. After some days you will lose your interest as your blog is not the reflection of your skill and interest. Secondly, you may not have a particular skill right now but you are highly interested to learn in the future. Then you can go with that particular topic for staring a blog because at a time this particular topic will be your field of expertise and interest. Thirdly, you need to break down the reason behind starting your blogging journey. If it’s your hobby then I will say nothing. On the other hand if you want to be full time professional blogger you must and must do some study and research about the topic. I would like to share with you that most of the full time bloggers of present time started their blog as a part of hobby. They never though that one day their blog will turn into a money making machine. Isn’t it an amazing fact?
I think you got the point why I asked you to find out the answers of above questions. Hope those questions make sense now. After coming up with your unique answers let’s have a look of “21 most popular blog topics to start blogging” in the year of 2015.
