How Do You Decide What to Blog About?

How do you decide what to blog about? For me it’s been easy- I just blog about myself or my interests. I have a lot of interests so finding something to write about is usually a piece of cake. I am into all kinds of things, chakras, metaphysics, astrology, spirituality, mystery schools, alchemy, tarot.

My biggest problem is I don’t get a lot of readers. I certainly don’t make much money doing it. I have been writing and blogging for seven or eight years. It used to be much easier to make money writing online. Now, not so much.

I want to start making money though, so I will have to expand the focus of what I am willing to write and blog about. So I am beginning to research how to get more traffic, and how to pick topics that will get searched for. I have been experimenting with Wordtracker’s free search tool, and coming up with ideas. Unfortunately the free tool is very limited. But I don’t want to buy the subscription until I have a better idea of what I am doing.

I will keep writing as I have done on Virily. This will be my “fun” writing place. But I will be experimenting on HubPages and my blog.

  1. Well, I hope you continue writing. It’s hard to earn money from a personal blog these days.

    As for the topics, I write about the things I’m interested in. A platform like Virily is a perfect venue for such.

    Still, I plan to start my own blog (again) for a particular niche.
