Do you want to be a successful blogger? Pick one of these 8 #blogging topics

Ready to dip your toes into the huge pool that is blogging? It is an extremely good hobby to get into, as you will find that you develop your writing skills and will be able to spend your time informing others of your hobbies and passions.

What Type of Blogger do you want to become?


But which hobbies and passions do you want to write about? This is the first major question that faces all bloggers. Sure, you could just go down the lifestyle blogging route, but as there are more and more bloggers breaking onto the scene it is now more important than ever to find your specialty and stick with it. There is no better way than standing out in the blogging world than by finding a niche topic that you can blog about.

So which type of blogger do you want to be? It all boils down to the type of things you want to blog about. Here are some of the most successful types of bloggers.

The Mommy Blogger

Got a new baby on the way? Then why not think about trying to make it big as a mommy blogger?! The mommy blogger posts about family life and her children. There is no stone left unturned when you become a mommy blogger, as every day out and event in your family life should be blogged about. After all, it’s what your readers want to read! One way to increase traffic if you want to be a mommy blogger is by posting lots of useful posts that other moms can use in their day-to-day lives. For instance, recipes and tips on childcare will also attract a lot of traffic. You might also like to sneak in the odd blog post about your other half, as readers love a good romance!

The Food Blogger

Ever dreamed of writing your own recipe book one day? Well, if you start out as a food blogger then that dream won’t be too far off. If you get your SEO just right and start building a following on social media, you may find that one day you are offered a generous book deal! However, you will have to put in plenty of hard work to get to this point, though. And that means writing some excellent posts with unique recipes. Fantastic food photography also helps. You will also find that blogging about specific diets, such as gluten-free or Paleo, will also help you to quickly increase your audience.

The Tech Blogger

Do you love all things tech? Then creating your very own tech blog could be the way forward! How-tos and tutorials will go down especially well on your tech blog. You will find that providing your readers with proactive IT maintenance support and tips will help to attract readers who aren’t so good with computer and IT problems. One of the main things to remember as a tech blogger is that all the information in your content needs to be current and up to date. Trends in tech move super quickly, and you need to be able to keep up with them!

The Car Blogger

Like your motors? If you are into your cars as much as the guys over at The Grand Tour are, then you would probably be a really good car blogger. People who are avid readers of car blogs want to read about various motoring tips as well as car reviews. Of course, you don’t need to drive each and every car you review yourself! That probably won’t be possible. Instead, you just need to have a good knowledge of cars so that you can critically write about each new car that hits the market.

The Fitness Blogger

Fitness is huge right now and so many people are trying to get fit and in shape. If you already have some experience of working in a gym or regularly attend a certain gym class, then you could always start your own fitness blog. The blog should include posts about the benefits of fitness and how people can follow and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Posting about the importance of a healthy diet will also attract a lot of readers to your site for diet tips.

The Style Blogger

If you know a thing or two about fashion, you will find that becoming a style blogger is a very lucrative move indeed. Most style bloggers tend to blog about the outfit they wear every day. They also regularly post about their latest buys from high-street or boutique fashion stores. If you do want to become a fashion blogger, it is important that you have a good quality DSLR so that you can take high-quality pictures of your outfits. Remember, all of these images will work wonders for your site’s SEO! As well as posting these fashion-oriented personal posts, you can also post more generic content about various styles and how to wear certain items and accessories.

The Beauty Blogger

If you love style but are more knowledgeable about makeup than about what shoes go with which dress, you can always become a beauty blogger. In fact, one of the great things about becoming a beauty blogger is that it gives you the chance to play around with video content. Lots of beauty bloggers create video tutorials that they upload to YouTube for others to watch. Once you do add videos to YouTube, you will find that this greatly increases traffic to your main website.

The Film And TV Blogger

Love your Netflix binges? Then why not start reviewing everything you watch and posting these reviews to a film and TV blog? If your writing is good and gets noticed, you may even be invited to write for popular websites such as Den of Geek. You never know, you may even be able to carve out a career as a film and TV blogger from your humble blog!

So which type of blogger do you want to become? Each has their own perks. Hopefully, this blog post has helped you decide!

    Hi Janice, when I first started Blogging, I wrote about all the crazy life experience I had. I read many of your posts and others on the subject of finding your niche. It took me a while to understand what you all were trying to tell me. It was like a lightbulb went of in my head! So now I’m going to be writing about something I know. My Blog was named Create An Be Happy. So, I’ll be Blogging about something I know all about ,Landscaping and Design. This is a subject that people need to know and something that will add great value to their homes. The reward for Creating something yourself is a great feeling. So, now when someone visit’s my site they will learn how to Create an be happy. I also will be writing an E-Book on the subject. I finally understand what you were trying to tell me. As always,Thanks for your help.

    Hi Janice, choosing the “right” blogging niche has been a challenge for me. I’ve been at this over a year and have done “okay” as a generalist but know that the real money is in finding a niche (or two) and sticking with it. I’ve been working for a home builder for close to 30 years and worked my family’s summer resort business for 20. I’ve been writing in the home improvement niche and thinking this is the best fit for me. It’s not what I REALLY want to write about, but it’s paying the bills. I’d like to branch out into other areas too so will continue to pitch other topics as they become available. Thanks for your insight.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Debbie,
      It sounds like you walk a fine line between writing about what gives you joy and writing what has money-making potential. Thanks for commenting.

  5. Carla

    I originally started as a fitness Blogger because, well, you write what you know 🙂
    I’ve since rebranded and extended my niche a little bit more – – but I’m still grateful for the lessons learned as a fitness blogger.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Carla,
      I’m in California where fitness is all the rage. I just came from watching my daughter compete in an obstacle course. I bet there’s great interest. I see other blogs about fitness. I’m sure there’s interest and you do well. Thanks for writing to tell me.

  6. Roy Miller

    I like the ways you broke out the different niches. With these suggestions, everyone should be able to pick their blogging topic.

    • Janice Wald

      HI Roy,
      Great to see you. Thanks for writing.
      I hope even if people already had their blogging niche they had fun seeing which ones were the most successful according to my guest author.

  7. John Doe

    You seem to have turned the light on for a lot of people today congratulations

  8. Terri Webster Schrandt

    Two other popular blog types are photography and travel! I think for every hobby, there is a blog type! And don’t forget author/writer blogs.

    • Janice Wald

      Hii Terri,
      I think you’re correct. That’s why blogs are so great. Whatever you’re interested in reading about you can find in a blog post. Thanks for writing.

  9. Michael Noker

    I’ve finally stopped thinking of myself as a blogger and started thinking of myself as a comedian instead. It brought me back to what I was passionate about (making stuff that makes people laugh and makes them think), rather than worrying about the box I was trying to fit into. I think that was what helped me get more on track over the last couple months, rather than running a hundred miles an hour in no particular direction.

    And I have to say: figuring that out makes it so much easier to follow along with everything else you’re teaching us to do on here.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Michael,
      I smiled when I read the end of your comment. If I am empowering people, I am glad. Thanks for the compliment.
      As far as how you rediscovered your passion, I am happy for you. Thanks for writing to tell me. Humor is definitely a niche.

  10. Leanne

    I think I’m a lifestyle blogger – sharing about midlife and connecting with other women who are on this journey with me. It’s a niche which gives me room to spread out my ideas. I don’t fit any of your eight categories but I know there are millions who do (I see them at the linky parties all the time!)

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Leanne,
      You are definitely a lifestyle blogger. I know since I’ve been to your site.
      Thanks for giving credence to my guest author’s 8 categories.

  11. Patty

    Great post! I think I’m a cross between mommy blogger and lifestyle blogger!
    Stopping by from SITS Sharefest!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Patty,
      Nice to meet you. Thanks for clicking my link over at SITS and writing to tell me about your niche.

  12. Meredith

    Hey Misty! I’m happy to see that mommy blogger made it on the list; I’m giving it a go myself! I never thought to include a “romance” post…that would be a unique mix-it-up post to add to my calendar 🙂

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Meredith,
      I’m glad you liked my guest author’s idea for a romance post on a mommy blog. I thought it was intriguing too.

  13. Le Anne Lindsay

    Stopping over from SITS Sat Sharefest – When I decided to start blogging I asked myself what do I love so much I won’t get sick of being a part of it day in and day out. It was a tie between loving to eat and loving to go to the movies, so I chose both and Tinsel & Tine was born. It’s a take off of Tinsel Town, but using the Tines of a fork!

  14. Janice Wald

    Hi Le Anne,
    Thanks for writing to tell us about your blog. I thought I’d heard of your blog. Now I know why it sounded familiar. Thanks for clicking my link over at SITS. Nice to meet you.
