So you have finally taken the bold step of setting up your own blog. After some initial hiccups, you finally succeed in getting it going. However, you are faced with a different form of situation here; you are lost for topics to post about. This is where my article will benefit you. I will try to guide you on how and what to post and write about.

The first step would be to make a mind map of a list of subjects/topics that you consider yourself to know a lot about. You can even write it down if you think that will help. All these topics and subjects can range from your interests, your career, your business, natural talents or even an aspect of life for that matter.

Next, make another list similar in fashion to the above. However, instead of topics and subjects that you have a deep knowledge on/about, make a list of those that you would like to be learning about. In other words, what grabs your attention? What are you interested in?

Third, as with the above two but a list of the subjects/topics on what you are naturally gifted on. Now, each and every individual is different. Are you a naturally gifted musician? Are you naturally good with a paintbrush?

Now, if you find that the topics on the above categories might seem to overlap, please do not be bothered by it; it's only really natural for that to occur. The main idea of the above exercise or brainstorming process is to come up with an initial list of all the possible topics you can post about. Just a minute ago, you were scratching your head wondering how to start and where to go and now, you have a comprehensive list in front of you.

From the above initial list, go through the list for a further few times until you can come up with a shortlist. This is the very reason why I strongly suggest doing a mind map since you are able to have a clear idea of all the topics involved. For all you know, you can even discover new topics that are related to the main topics you have listed down.

With that, I conclude my post this time around. Put this into practice and you will soon be able to blog about a wide range of topics and subjects that you enjoy and is knowledgeable about or at least will be. My next post will further explain that; choosing the most appropriate subject matter for your blog posts.
