Welcome to day 2 of the hot to start a blog email course!
When you start blogging, you can blog about anything. The sky is the limit on topics and themes. MY biggest suggestion is blog what you LOVE. If you love what you are writing about it will show through and your readers will be more loyal!
On the same token, you don't want your blog to cover too many topics. You want to be to target down your reader and if there are too many topics on the blog it's too hard to find people who like everything.
Now take a look at The Frugal Navy Wife. I have pretty much hit the limit of things to talk about! While everything takes on frugal aspect I do frugal living, Recipes, DIY, homeschool, and military. So when I wanted to branch off into travel I started Roadschooling with The Frugal Navy Wife to start talking about travel, RVing, camping, and I am moving my homeschooling over there.
So yesterday we answered your WHY. Now let's get your WHAT nailed down. WHAT will you blog about. Here are some of the more popular niche's but this is not all of them this is just some ideas!
- Frugal Living/Finance
- Small business
- Health and Fitness
- Games/Video Gaming
- Blog about Blogging
- Teaching People a Trade/Coaching
- + Much More!
Once you know what are you are blogging about I want you to come up with 20 blog post ideas. The titles don't have to be set in stone but set a post idea and working title. If there will be any holidays coming up near when you plan to launch your blog try to include some holiday content as well.
These posts should be evergreen. This means they will be relevant year after year. No time sensitive/deal posts. These posts also need to be niche specific. Get going!
I'd love for you to hit reply and let me know what you plan to blog about!

I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
