Happy New Blogs Eve!

See what I did there?

Anyway.. in case you were wondering: small niche blogs are just as popular (if not more so) than all-things-subject blogs.

What it boils down to is what content you want to share. That is the first major decision you will need to make to start a blog.

There’s no shortage of blog types and interests/subjects. While it might be tempting to keep your subject options open and stay in a broad-spectrum lane, niching down will help you in the long run. 

Two things to consider as you’re deciding on the niche/purpose of your blog:

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What interests you?

Every niche’s audience has their own unique interests. Your passion for the subjects you speak on will not only keep you talking, it will help attract a larger engaged audience.

There are a broad range of ideas for lifestyle blogs.


Food blogs are super popular because they attract so many diverse readers. A simple search on Pinterest will yield tons of results  for healthy eating blogs, ingredient-specific blogs, dietary blogs and a plethora of food-related topics. 

The best part? You don’t need complicated recipes to gain a following. In fact, people love simple things they can whip up quickly. Start with recipes you use daily and go from there.

To monetize, you can sell unpublished recipes or a book with a collection of your favorites. You can do sponsored posts from companies about their baking pans or ingredients. 

DIY - Crafting

If you prefer to make things yourself and have a designated “craft closet”, DIY – Craft blogs are for you!

DIY blog suggestions:

  • Artwork
  • Woodwork
  • Metalwork
  • Construction
  • Minor House Fixes (please leave the major fixes to the Pros!) 

Craft blog suggestions:

Suggestions for monetization:

  • Organizers
  • Scrap Paper Companies
  • Digital Papers (your customers can print out)

Craft – DIY blogs can involve lots of communication, but that is precisely what makes it a great niche. 

Product Reviews + Tutorials = Affiliate

Affiliate blogs are product reviews and tutorials.

It’s a good idea to pick a niche and stick to it, like Gizmodo does. If you like a variety of products, you should probably start different blogs for each category.

Affiliate blogs include thorough reviews about products that include:

  • Features
  • Pros & Cons of Ownership
  • Cost of Ownership
  • How to Use the Product 

Generally, the posts will have links to the product, which net the blog owner a commission on each purchase. You are going to have to do a little Keyword Research to make sure your products will pop up in searches.

To monetize: Find in-demand products with great affiliate programs. Build your email list and/or social media following to make it easier to promote the products. 

Whichever type of blog you choose to start, be sure to create high-quality content and publish it often.
