Having a few blog post ideas set aside will be helpful along your blogging journey. Referring to these ideas will reduce the amount of time you will be asking yourself, what to blog about.
Blogging can be fun. Connecting with others who share the same interest and passion as you, is a rewarding experience. As your audience grows, so will your impact in the industry. More and more visitors are acknowledging your site and reading your content. When this opportunity comes, it will surely validate everything you have been working so hard to achieve.
To get there, you must focus on your content. Writing relevant and helpful blog posts will be advantageous for your audience. You want them to come back wanting to read more. Well, the question is, how do you do that? More importantly, how to find your own voice and know what exactly to blog about?
Identify your Niche
I would first suggest you determine what your niche will be. Ask yourself what your focus of your blog will be. Next, determine what exactly makes you so passionate about this niche, then blog about it. This blog post alone could be broken up into a series of posts. Find inspiration through other user stories in your niche. What are other bloggers blogging about and how is it helping people.
Solve a Problem
You want to be inspiring and helpful. Identify a problem in your niche and provide a solution. Learn and explore other facets and share them. Tell your readers a story…starting from day 1. Your first blog post can be about how you were first impacted by your niche.

Answer Frequently Asked Questions
Well, as I’ve said before, I’ve been there…I’m still there. I’m growing with you. In my journey, I found success in writing blog posts from people like you. That’s right, those of you reading this blog post right now. Working with the Blogging 101 course catalog as well as the Facebook Group, I get questions all the time. I found that answering these questions, then turning my response into a blog post, is an excellent way to provide valuable content for my blog. That one person who asked a question now has helped several people, who may have had the same inquiry.
Debunk Misconceptions and Myths
Writing about misconceptions and myths in your niche industry can be helpful for your target audience. Using reputable sources to solidify your point adds validity to the information on your site. For instance, some people believe you can’t make any money from full-time blogging. Well, there are several sources available to argue this point. I can share many successful full-time bloggers in this industry that bring in a six-figure income. Doing a Pinterest search can help in providing several sources to mention in an article like this.
Writing your blog post ideas down is a helpful exercise. As I mentioned earlier, blogging can be fun. However, it will require work. The effort that you put into working for your employer or whatever way you make money, should be the same effort you put into your blog. Your blog will represent you so you would want the output to resemble a product that you worked hard at.
