5 Basic Blogging Ideas for Beginners

1. Hobbies

Hobbies are one of the most popular things to blog about. Whether your hobby is collecting vinyl records, knitting hats, woodcarving, or hiking, you can build a blog around it. Include personal how-to’s, reviews, recommendations, and intriguing facts to fill out the blog and draw in readers.

2. Work Field

Blog about the type of work you do. Whether it is retail, customer service, computer engineering, or nursing, there are plenty of things you can write about that would interest readers without jeopardizing your job. Write blogs about the skills a person needs to do your job. Write how-to posts on different aspects of your work. Write tips related to your work and the educational requirements. The list goes on and on.

3. Local History or Events

Your town’s local history can be a fun topic to blog about and it would get you out of the house more often. The same goes for blogging about local events. Topics you could cover include haunted houses, historical buildings, famous people who lived in your area, inventors, fairs, concerts, and road shows.

4. Pets

You can blog about your pet, whether it be a grumpy parrot, a pernickety kitty, or a dog that thinks he is human. People love animal stories, reading how to articles that will help them with their pets, and just about everything cute. Take hundreds of photos and share them with your readers. Encourage your readers to share their own pet stories and photos.

5. Medical and Psychiatric Conditions

Do you have a medical or psychiatric condition? Want to share about your personal experiences with the disease, condition, or problem? While you can’t give medical advice unless you are a doctor, you can share about your feelings, experiences, and how you are coping. For example, if you have diabetes, you can write about your diet, share recipes, discuss setbacks and how you overcome them.
