What type of topics are not recommended for writing a blog?

9 replies
Hi,

People state that it's possible to earn money writing a blog about any topic. Are there any topics that aren't recommended to earn money blogging? I am interested in earning through Adsense because it seems easier to achieve. However, are there are other ways to earn money that are easier to achieve, through a blog?

    I am going to start blogging for the New Year. Two of the ways I am going to implement to make money from this blog is through creating my own courses and affiliate marketing. I won't be using Adsense.

    writetoearn,

    You can certainly make money blogging. Find a niche that you are passionate about and blog about that. Adsense is fine but you aren't going to make much money from it unless you have a LOT of traffic. You are better off finding a highly paying affiliate program. Nothing is going to be easy, it is going to take a lot of hard work and will take you a while to build an audience. Make sure you are targeting keywords related to your blog.

    Yes, those that you have determined through proper research, have little or no consumer interest. Asking here, won't help you in the least as all you will get are personal opinions. You need factual data.

    That said, personally, I don't think that a blog for men that shave all their body hair would garner much interest. Then, again, I'm not a millennial, so what the hell do I know??? For all I know that could be all the rage.

    Nothing would surprise me!

    Nothing is easy . Every thing requires learning,time, dedication & commitment to make it happen. I would recommend learning more about Affiliate Marketing , Sales Funnels , Email Marketing as these all require you to learn a different set of writing skill Set called CopyWriting which has very high demand in market and that pays you very well.

    Hi WTE,

    People state that it's possible to earn money writing a blog about any topic. Are there any topics that aren't recommended to earn money blogging? I am interested in earning through Adsense because it seems easier to achieve. However, are there are other ways to earn money that are easier to achieve, through a blog?

    1: It is possible to earn money blogging on any topic, but not if earning money is your driver. This would be like a person who has never picked up a basketball, saying "I would love to earn money by playing hopes, but does it matter what position I choose?" Gotta have a love of b-ball, and blogging, so your passion inspires you to practice for years, before you earn money.

    2: Nope; you can earn money by being passionate about any topic, so you spend years learning, practicing, and then, earning through the niche.

    3: No income stream is easier or harder than any other. This is like saying that using a hammer or screwdriver is easier, or harder. All depends on the skills of the carpenter, or, the skills of the blogger.

    4: This blogging bit is not easy. If it were easy to make money, 81% of bloggers would be millionaires. Turns out, 81% of bloggers never make more than $100 online.

    Follow your passion, not profits. This is the starting point to begin earning money through your blog, 6 months to 2 years down the road.

    It is possible to earn money blogging on any topic,
    Complete nonsense.

    There has to be an audience and multitudes of topics are so obscure and the audience so small there is no money involved.

    Don't you ever get tired of spouting nonsense?

    FFS!

    The chief problem to solve from my perspective in blogging is WHERE IS YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE and how do you get them to your site to read your content? And then How Do You Keep Them Coming Back?

    Put up writing and you're likely to be ignored.

    Conversely, many pretty lousy writers get a lot of attention.

    Why is that?

    It's not the writing, is it.

    The writing hardly matters.

    Example: a gossip blog can be terribly written, but contain morsels about celebrities.

    Why are readers there, then?

    How do they know to be there?

    Are they told to go by an influencer? (Howard Stern yelled at his audience for them to visit the retired pornstar's tell-all blog.)

    Do they want to be "in the know"? (Every year the Oscar results are 'leaked' on this site. Sure, 7/10 predictions are wrong, but enough are right that people keep orbiting back.)

    Can they get a point of view there they can't anywhere else? (The anonymous writer is purported to be a former insider of the US embassy to a middle eastern nation and has a unique perspective on events; foreign policy wonks AND energy traders visit frequently to get the scoop and stay ahead of things.)

    These examples are just off the top of my head. And they illustrate WHY people go places online. Their reasons are not your reasons, but it sure would be helpful to figure them out ahead of time to engineer them a bit, don't you agree? Which makes the writing and the site and offers NOT about the words at all but everything behind them.

    THINK.

    This is no different than the hundreds, literally hundreds, of crappy ecommerce sites brought to my attention every single month where some guy has thrown three dozen completely disconnected, poorly manufactured garbage products up and thinks now they have a business. And I have "bad cop" job of telling them they have nothing. That their so-called fast product changeout possible because they have a dropshipper somewhere is NOT helping...it's actually HURTING because they change their products so fast they have zero consistency and nobody knows what to expect when they come back to that site.

    Consistency in marketing message. FOCUS. A distinct, noticeable target market. CLARITY. An obviousness in "Who This Is For." No difference between the ecommerce site and the blogs we're talking about.

    Ryan and Jason have given you excellent advice. Listen to them.

    My best advice is to quit focusing on "easy". Writing isn't easy in any form -- at least not at first.

    Topics to avoid are:

    Anything you have zero interest in. Unless you're going to outsource all the writing and since your name is "Writetoearn" I'm guessing that is not your plan.

    Anything you have zero knowledge about and no desire to research.

    Anything without a paying market.

    The sweet spot is something that intersects your knowledge and a paying market.

    Do some research on what topics are selling on Amazon and blog topics that are already popular. If you discover a topic that no one is writing about then it means it's probably because no one wants to read about it.
