Starting your own blog is something which can be a great form of self-expression. You are able to share with people and exchange ideas in a way which is unique from talking face to face.

Some people find that they have such great success with their blog that they even end up making a career out of it and monetize off of advertising.

If this is enough to get you excited about starting a blog, then the next step is deciding what you want to write about. Since blogging is something which is all about individual expression, the possibilities are limitless when it comes to choosing your subject matter.

Not sure what your first post should be about? Here are some ideas to get you started.

Review a Product

One of the most popular things that you can find on blogs is people buying technology or other products and reviewing them. This is useful for people who come across their blog and want to find out the scoop on something without having to buy it themselves.

Once you start building a big enough audience you might find that companies will actually start to send you their products for free in hopes of you reviewing them for your blog.

Share a Personal Experience

If you are someone who wants to connect with your readers on a personal level, you may want to write a blog post about a personal experience which is meaningful to you. Often the more personal that you make it, the more inspiring it will be to the people that read it.

Try to think of something which is unique in your life or something which formed you as a person. You may want to end the post with a question like “What personal experiences have you had which have also shaped you as a person?” You’ll find that encouraging interaction with your readers will invoke more reader participation and ultimately more of a following.
