24 Most Popular Blog Niches and Topics

Updated: Aug 31

People blog for varied reasons. Others do it as a hobby, while many do it with a goal to earn a living. You are probably reading this article because you want to publish a blog and you are searching for content ideas. I'm glad you've found your way here. Please continue reading.

The first step that all bloggers take is identifying a niche they would write about. Ideally, when selecting a blogging category, you must be able to initially list at least 25 topics or titles; this is your sweet spot. If you cannot get to 25, it means that your chosen category is too narrow and you'll probably have a hard time providing rich content in you blog. Meaningful content is the key to this business. Without any substantial information, you'll find it hard to build your authority and status in the blogging world.

Certain topics may overlap with another broader category. Just make sure you remain as close as possible to your niche to let your readers clearly understand what your blog is all about. It shouldn't be like your niche is Home & Garden, then you'll write more articles about popular online games for teens or latest trends in summer fashion.

Ultimately, you must remember that:

For you to be able to write, you have to read. Without knowledge you will not be able to come up with brilliant ideas to write.

The purpose of this article is to provide you with the 24 most popular blog categories and some topics which you can use in writing blog articles. Also remember to be more creative in writing the title. Make it as appealing as possible to attract readers and don't forget to add a personal touch on every article you'll write.
