What do I blog about?
You’ve heard about Aussie Blogs and have decided to start up your own blog. You log in and it gets to the point of choosing your blog name. What name do I choose? What do I blog about?
Getting stuck on these questions is more common than you think. Eventually you choose a brand new fancy name, start writing your first post and hit that all too common writers block. It all seems too hard, you go to bed and then forget about it in the morning.
The easiest way to get started sharing your ideas is to write about something you are passionate about.
Some good examples are:
You need to however go one step further and get really focused. Find a niche that you are interested in. This will make it easier to write about your passion
Lets Expand on some of these ideas above.
Are you going on a holiday soon and want to document your travels. A good example of this can be found by visiting The Happy Wanderers
Maybe you want to document your family tree and republish any findings so that the rest of your family can see
Maybe you like Soccer. You can narrow this down even further by picking a particular team
Well it wouldn’t take to much to get anyone started on this topic, but maybe you’re passionate about a particular aspect of it. Heard about the carbon tax anyone?
This one should be easy. Perhaps you like cooking. Learnt a new recipe or want to recommend one to your friends.
You’re an animal lover right? Where do you start. Check out Feather Babies for an idea on how to get really focused.
Maybe you’re a budding artist or an established painter. Why not get more exposure and put up some of your work on Aussie Blogs. Pamela Meredith did!
So before you go out and get started on that new blog, spend 10 minutes over a warm cup of tea and start mapping out your plan.
