Profitable Niche Blogging Topics To Write On


Blogging Topics

When you start a blog, you usually do so with the intention of providing useful information for readers and to ultimately drive traffic to your site to make money.  One of the biggest difficulties about starting a blog is deciding what blogging topics to focus on.  You need a niche that is interesting, allows you a lot of freedom to write regular articles and of course is profitable!

You may already run a blog, but have run out of ideas to talk about and feel drained of inspiration. In case you are at this point I thought I would share a few blog post topic ideas that bring in a lot of traffic and work well within most blog niches.

So, in no particular order, here are my 10 profitable blogging topics to write on:

10 Profitable Niche Blogging Topics

1. Travel


Blogging Topics


 “I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be.” Douglas Adams

Travel is a topic that is important to many different people. Some people travel for business, for pleasure, for family matters, etc. No matter what the particular case is, there is sure to be a reason to write about travel in your blog.

You can write about; travel safety, fun places you have been, places you want to go, the hardships you have faced in areas that you have travelled to, the best places for travellers to visit in your area and more! Even if you have never left your home town you can still write about travel.

It does not take much to get the interest of readers, but be sure you add an image or two to really bring the idea home.

2. Relationships


Blogging Topics


 “Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness.” Oliver Wendell Holmes

Relationships, love, friendship and family are all important parts of everyone’s lives. We sometimes forget how important they are and what a huge role they play in our lives. However writing a blog post about relationships is a great way to bring in new readers. Everyone is interested in forming stronger relationships, healing broken relationships, finding true love, and keeping the flame alive.

Whatever experiences you can share from your own life and the lives of the people you know will be appreciated and could really help someone else. Not only that, but talking about relationships helps your readers to connect with you as a person which makes them more likely to follow your blog for the long term and recommend it to others.

3. Failures

Blogging Topics

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.” Steve Jobs

Failures are a part of life. The thing to remember is to learn from your failures. Sharing your experiences with failures can help others when they are going through tough times. Whether you failed in business dealings or other matters, sharing how you overcame those failures makes for a great blog post that many people will want to read.

4. Success

Blogging Topics

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” Abraham Lincoln

Like sharing your failures sharing your successes is very important. You may think that sharing the secret to your success will cheapen it somehow but that is not the case. In fact, sharing success just multiplies your success. You have heard that the more you give away the more you keep, well it is true. The more you are willing to help other to succeed the more successful you will be.

5. Education

Blogging Topics

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

Education and schooling is a very hot topic nowadays. Because of the recession and the vast unemployment everyone wants to know how to get a get a good job and that always starts with education. From classes to brush up on essential skills to masters degrees to just reminding people that education is a lifelong pursuit there are a myriad of ways to include education in your blog posts.

6. Happiness

 “The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.” Benjamin Franklin

Everyone wants to be happy. Share what makes you happy for a great blog post idea. From hobbies to creative endeavors to walks with your pet, your joys and experiences of happiness can help others to find their enjoyment in life. Share what makes you happy and what makes you smile. Everyone loves a happy story.

7. Beauty

 “People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Beauty, fashion, makeup, jewelry and more all make for great blog post topics. Everyone is concerned about how they look. Fashion is an ever changing thing that can fill pages upon pages of writing. If you want to get people into your blog posts that deal with beauty, however, you will have to include images. People love pictures!

8. Photos


Blogging Topics


 “Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Adding pictures to your blog posts is more than just a good idea. Sometimes an entire blog post can be based around a picture. If you are having an off day or just do not have time to write then you can use a picture and caption it so that your readings will know what you are thinking. This is a great way to update your blog when you are really having a hard writing day.

9. Health


Blogging Topics


 “I believe that how you feel is very important to how you look – that healthy equals beautiful.”Victoria Principal

Health, diet and exercise are important topics to people. Everyone wants to keep healthy and live life to its fullest. If you can share diet tips that worked for you, healthy recipes, exercise routines, gym horror stories, and even health issues that you have overcome not only can you help others but, again, you can connect with your readers on a very visceral level.

Almost everyone has a health story they can share. Disabilities and children’s health are also big blog post topics that are very popular with readers and if you are knowledgeable and wise about how you talk about the subject they will bring a lot of traffic to your blog.

10. Food

Blogging Topics

 “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” J. R. R. Tolkien

Food is an important part of life. We all need to eat and most of us enjoy thinking about our next meal. Invest your time in crafting blog posts about food and you will be well rewarded. Eating, drinking, and going to bars and restaurants make up a lot of people’s free time. They love to read about the latest recipe, the best bar scene and the newest restaurants. Share your knowledge and your tastes with others for a great and high traffic blog post. If you can include pictures of the food and drinks you will get even more hits and your blog post could even go viral. People love to talk and share about food.

These are just a sampling of the great and profitable blog post ideas that are out there. Take a look at other successful bloggers and what they write on. Make sure you keep your blog on topic, but think outside the box. There are plenty of ways to incorporate your blog’s niche into different categories and reach fresh audiences.

    Hi Matt,

    This post is really inspiring for people I think for so many reasons – the images used really stand out – that alone should spark imagination – then it’s taken another level with the inspiring quotes and the more than adequate descriptions against each subject.

    Incidentally enough, if you look at each of those topics and then think about your local supermarket or newsagent – in the magazine stand those subjects are all covered with their own magazines in their own right – A VERY successful internet marketer told me that if there is a magazine about it, then you can make money online with it …….

    This post mirrors that – this post could be a missing link for someone who wants to start an online business (be it blogging or product selling as an internet marketer) but is struggling to see the wood through the trees so to speak.

    When I began to learn about internet businesses I wanted to pursue Travel as my niche (still something I would like to bring to life in the future) but as it transpired I was lead down my Social Media path – these 10 suggestions however can be attributed to people’s passions and hobbies, and I personally think thats’ as good a place as any to start!


    • Cheers Clair! Glad you liked the post 🙂

      Nancy did a great job putting this post together, I only ended up adding the pics. I thought the addition of the quotes really help to inspire and spark imagination. There is tons of potential out there online, people just need to sit down and work out what they’re interested in.

      I think the line “If there is a magazine about it, then you can make money online with it…” is such a great line. It’s so true! It’s very hard to think up a totally original unique idea, but thankfully you don’t have to. You just have to look at what is already out there that people want and think of a way to present it differently.

      A travel blog is something that I would love to do one day myself. The thought of travelling the world and earning a living by writing about it is, in my opinion, heaven. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to do that, but for now I have enough work on my plate. I can dream though 🙂
