Are you looking to start a blog but not sure what to blog about? Do you also want to find a great blog niche that you can money?

Yes, choosing the right blog niche can be difficult, regardless of what life experiences you have.

You may have a lot of questions, like:

  • What should I blog about?
  • How do I make money with my blog?
  • How do I find the perfect blog niche?
  • If my blog topic idea is not a popular topic, should I still start a blog about it?

I would bet these were the same questions that every successful blogger started with asking and look where they are.

If you have just started your blogging journey, you have probably heard the advice:

  • You have to be an expert and passionate about your blog topic

This is not necessarily the whole truth. Because there are thousands of blogs that when a blogger started blogging about their chosen topic, they were not passionate nor an expert in that topic but are now making money with their blog.

How Do I Make Money with a Blog?

The secret to making money in your chosen blog niche topic is:

  • Help a targeted audience solve a problem

And you make money by giving people the solution to their problem by having your own product and/or service, someone else’s product and/or service (affiliate marketing), sponsored ads, etc.

How Do I Find the Perfect Blog Niche?

Hey, don’t worry, my 150+ blog niche ideas will get you started on finding the perfect blog niche.

Additionally, once you have figured out your blog niche topic, head on over to my step by step guide on how to start a successful blog so you can move forward on your blogging journey.

This tutorial shows you everything you need to know to create a blog from scratch and keeps you from making the mistakes most beginners do.

What are the Most Popular Types of Blogs?

  • Fashion Blogs
  • Food Blogs
  • Travel Blogs
  • Lifestyle Blogs
  • Fitness/Health Blogs
  • DIY Blogs
  • Personal Finance Blogs
  • Parenting Blogs
  • Pet Blogs
  • Gaming Blogs

All of these blogs are very popular and profitable.

But you don’t have to start a blog on one of these topics to make money blogging as there are so many other blog topics that are profitable, too. 

In a few paragraphs above, I gave you the secret to making money with a blog, and that information will help you find your profitable blog niche.

Can I Have More Than One Niche on my Blog?

Yes, you can.

Many blogs will have cross-niches.

A few examples would be:

  • Parenting – budgeting -recipes
  • Fitness – healthy eating
  • Home – RV’ing  – technology
  • Family – decor – DIY
  • Your local area – things to do for families – restaurants – museums – off the beaten path attractions

150+ Profitable Blog Niche Ideas

To make money with your blog, you need to attract targeted, high-converting traffic to your articles/products/services and other content.

Therefore, you need to start by knowing who your target audience is and:

  • What people want from you (articles-how to’s/ informational, videos, products, services, etc.)
  • What people need from you (explain how to solve their problem)

Once you figure out the wants and needs of your target audience, you can create the kind of content they are looking for to help them.

To make it easier for you, I have broken down broad niche topics with the sub-niche topics.

Table Of Contents

Alternative Medicine (7)

  • Acupuncture
  • Aromatherapy
  • Ayurveda
  • Homeopathy
  • Naturopathy
  • Chinese or Oriental medicine
  • Hypnosis

Alternative medicines have been around for hundreds (some thousands) of years. There are many micro-niche topics relating to the mind, body, diet and herbs, external energy, and senses that a targeted audience can learn more about and/or help their well-being.

Animals (9)

  • Dogs 
  • Cats
  • Birds
  • Reptiles

  • Fish and Aquarium
  • Horse

Whether you have a pet or live on a farm, talking about their care (through the different stages of their life), grooming, behavior, medical/vet care, training, the food they can and not eat, insurance, toys, gift ideas, or traveling with your animal would make for a profitable blog niche.

In 2019, consumers in the U.S. pet industry spent 95.7 Billion (yes, I said Billion) and 2020 is estimated at 99.0 Billion. This is a huge niche with a lot of sub-niches worth looking into if you are an animal lover.
