There are websites about nearly everything imaginable, but that doesn’t mean they’re all good!
Here at Fizzle, we believe that anyone who puts in the right amount of focused effort can build an audience online, even if it is about an obscure topic.
But knowing what to blog about isn’t always easy.
We ran a blogging challenge a while back, and surveyed the participants about the topic ideas they were considering for their blogs. They didn’t use all of these blog topic ideas, but many of them did get used.
Don’t know what topic to start your blog on? Here are 81 blog topic ideas to get you thinking about what you could focus (or re-focus) your site on.

Starting a blog is actually easy. Thousands of new blogs are started every day. Anyone can start a blog in 5 minutes, but very few people will create blogs that matter.
What’s the difference between most blogs and the select few that attract huge followings?
That’s a question I started asking myself long before I started my first blog. Since then, I’ve started four blogs that have attracted over a million visitors each, and I’ve helped friends and clients attract huge audiences and build thriving, sustainable businesses built around blogs.
I’ve also seen plenty of bloggers work incredibly hard on something that never takes off.
By studying these differences and through the work I’ve been doing for the past 10 years, I’ve developed a repeatable formula for building successful blogs.
Everything I’ve learned has been distilled into our Start a Blog That Matters course. This course can help you create a blog that will change your life and the lives of your readers.
