How to Choose What to Blog About

It’s probably the first question every blogger has to ask themselves. It comes before writing the first post, choosing the theme or even selecting your blogging platform: What is my blog going to be about?

It’s a tough question and how you answer it will have a big impact on what your site is going to be. It’s going to affect the type of content it has, the media it uses, the audience it reaches out to, how it is promoted and much, much more.

In short, every decision you make about your blog depends on that first critical choice.

Blogging Pitfalls: How to Never Run Out of Ideas

There’s an old maxim that says “Ideas are a dime a dozen.” In sort it means that ideas are worthless without execution, which is what gives them value.

It doesn’t matter if you’re writing in a tight niche or about something as broad as things you see in your day-to-day life, at some point inspiration dries up and you’re stuck with a post to write and nothing to write about.

How you respond to this challenge can say a great deal about you, your blog and the potential future of both, especially if it is to last for any length of time.

So how do you deal with this problem? The answer is surprisingly simple. Read More
