There are several different types of blogs out there. After all anybody today can start a blog about anything they want to. The range of topics can go from weight loss, cooking, sports, personal, and Motorsports. Out of those are just some of the kinds of blog you can start-up. As I’ve talk about before, you can even start a blog about bowling pins. Probably the most popular blog are transformation blogs.
What are transformation blogs?
Basically a transformation blog is a blog about somebody who makes a change in their life. The most common ones are weight loss. However there can be lifestyle changes or personal changes. Changes can range from: weight loss, diet changes, moving, even family. 9 out of 10 times when someone starts a transformation blog, they end up getting large number of hits. After all everyone loves to read about how to change their lives, lose weight and more but not many people really go out there and do it.
That’s the big draw for a transformation blog and you have to remember one thing when you start your blog. There are two things you need to think of before you start and it’s even more important than what your niche is going to be. Will this blog be about making money or not?
Make Money or No
The biggest issues I personally have had over the years are what path I should take. Clearly if you’re going into blogging to make money you’re going to almost always fail. Such as I have, and this is because you spend more time trying to find ways to make the money to get the traffic, to have that perfect looking layout to draw in sales that you miss the most important part; content.
Content is your friend and without writing good content you’ll basically have nothing but a fancy layout. If you go into a transformation blog thinking you can write something up about losing weight, show some pictures of it and poof you’ll make money well you’re wrong. Not every kind of blog is design to make money or at least not right away. Granted you can make some money with a blog about losing weight and your path to losing say 100 lbs, but to be honest most people will enjoy the content than the ads all over the place.
Personally I’ve always wanted to start a transformation blog because I believe it’s the best kind of blog out there given it’s not only cool to see how someone else changes their lives but it does inspire you to do the same. I personally am on my own path of transformation and in a little way this blog is about such change as those changes affect my life and writing on this blog. In time we’ll all find out way and remember whatever you choose, choose from the heart.
