Struggling to decide what topic you want to write about on your blog? Today I thought I’d share a run down of the 10 most popular blog niches. These topics are going to generate the most traffic for you, because they are the things people are searching for. This will ideally result in more income opportunities for you through your blog.
Okay so let’s dive in-
1. Fashion Blogs
There is a ton of buzz around fashion bloggers and instagram accounts, as well. Women all over the world are looking for fashion advice, and that’s where this niche comes in. There is good money to be made in promoting clothing and accessory affiliate programs, clothing subscription boxes, and more. Bonus points if you can share some comfortable mom friendly fashion advice with me. I’d follow in a heartbeat.
2. Food Blogs
There’s no secret that people love to eat. Whether they like to eat healthy or they are looking for some soul food for their family gathering, we all eat. People are searching everyday for food and recipe ideas that you can bring them. Food blogs can make money by selling their own digital products, such as recipe e-books, or by promoting fun kitchen gadgets and cooking tools.
3. Travel Blogs
Travel blogs are growing rapidly in popularity. Resorts, hotels, and tourism boards are all beginning to realize the value in having an influencer talk about their business or town on social media. Travel bloggers can get paid to write about a destination, and can even have their travel comped so that the trip is free. There are a lot of ways to make money with this niche, and who doesn’t want to travel?
4. Beauty Blogs
This goes for Youtube as well. There are tons of searches every month for beauty product reviews and advice. Then, these bloggers and influencers can earn money by recommending those products to their readers, among other ways.
5. Fitness Blogs
The health and wellness space online is hugely popular, and profitable, too. There are so many products out there that you can recommend to your fitness loving readers, as well as a ton of options for digital products you can create for them. Do you have an awesome weight loss story or have a passion for helping others get healthy? This niche may be just for you.
6. Lifestyle Blogs
These blogs tend to be a mesh of many things- often travel, beauty, fitness, food, and more. These bloggers talk about everything that they enjoy in their lives and it is profitable for them.
7. Mom Blogs
There are so many moms out there who are scouring the web for advice on how to handle situations with their children, advice on good toys for their children’s development, and even fun activities that they can do with their kids. Can you help moms in these situations? Mom blogs are another way to make good money with affiliate marketing.
8. Sewing Blogs
Believe it or not, this is a very popular area, as well. I attribute that to the fact that people who enjoy sewing are always searching for new patterns and tutorials to teach them. You can give away tutorials to attract readers, or, ahem, sell them. Plus, there’s all the affiliate programs out there for sewing supplies and education, as well.
9. Wedding Blogs
You’d be really surprised how popular wedding information online really is. I have always known that the Wedding topic was a profitable one, since my days of getting started on Etsy. Etsy is a gold mine of beautiful Wedding supplies and more. There are a few ways you can make a passive income with digital products talking about Weddings, and tons of affiliate marketing opportunities, as well.
10. Home/Decorating Blogs
Look on Instagram and you are bound to see a few beautifully decorated homes in your feed. This topic is big for blogging, and huge on platforms like Instagram. We all want our homes to be beautiful, relaxing, inviting spaces, and if you have a beautiful home and tips to share on how you got it that way, this niche could be for you.
So there you have it, the 10 most popular blog niches. Do you spot a niche on this list that you are passionate about turning into a business?
