I have not been blogging that long but I can see where it could become a
chore to come up with the most successful blog topics especially after
someone has been doing it for a good length of time.
I decided to write this article as I was outlining present and future relevant
After trying to complete my little project I kept coming up with more ideas
and different avenues of interest concerning what, when and somehow.
I was going over my list when I decided to share the process. Enjoy!
Where to Find Them
General Trends: A pattern of gradual change in a condition, output, or
process, or an average or general tendency of a series of data points to
move in a certain direction over time, represented by a line or curve on a
Have you ever gone over your past blogs to either check for grammar,
typos, or to check links?
Or re-read an article that had been indexed then decided that something
would sound better this or that way and say,” Damn, how did I miss that?”
Another reason would be to go back and glean through your posts to find
articles to link to your other posts. Click here for an example.
Well, look again to see if you might find something in your own writings
that could have gained popularity or could stand alone for a good Blog.
The most successful blog topic could be just waiting for you to proofread it
out or could also be just lying around the house for that matter.
Seek and you shall find!
Name a few things you do during inclement weather –
- Stay Home
- Watch TV
- Work in the Garage
All the activities surrounding any of the above topics could be the
catalyst of different things bought at any of the below locations.
They all have affiliate programs.
Someone that is aware of weather trends such as the rainy season, snow or
just an extended change in temperature can gain an advantage in there
Try this – make a list of everything you do around the house during the bad
weather days and the things you might use or would like to have during
Now right down beside of those items where they can be purchased, then
google the merchant and inquire about an Affiliate Program.
Now on the flip side make a list of everything that you do during nice
weather and what you would use or just something that would make things
easier during that time.
Probably the same merchants can be considered as a supplier as the bad
weather days unless you came up with a specialized tool or hard to find
The latest gadget or tool would be a good target.
Tis The Season
Seasonal ideas that could be the most successful blog topic might cross over
to the weather topic above.
The weather changes that are associated with the seasons come hand in
There are however things that are seasonal that have little to do with the
weather and those are the ones we are going to target.
Spring is an awakening of nature.
Flowers are panted, gardens are plowed and people start socializing more
in public places such as city parks and amusement centers.
Vendors take to the street to show their wares to fresh new traffic that has
been wintering at home.
I would say spring would be the time of year that new clothes are shopped
for because people can not fit in their last years’ jeans and jump online to
see the latest fashion trends.
Tennis shoes would also be a big seller this time of the year.
Auto repair takes a jump in the spring as people do not have to endure the
cold to tinker around with there vehicle.
Out with old and in with new they say!
Know anyone that buys that latest new swimsuit every summer, Amazon
Summer brings all the best out of everyone.
Did you ever notice it? People going places just to be going, vacations plans
being executed, camping trips outfitted and memories being constructed in
the warm rays of the summer sunshine and the long warm summer nights.
Ahhh, those long starry summer nights where the warmth of the day
scurries over the land by night and breezes across your body.
And the beach…enough said!
There are so many topics and sub-topics born from this season that you
could start a list of activities and still be writing come Christmas.
The affiliate is only restricted by his or her own imagination, so turn it
The merchants will love ya!
The fall sun is something I always
noticed because it delivers a different
hue of light from the sun.
With that light also comes the difference between
the landscape and the different activities, some
slowing down and some starting up.
Early fall has those that refuse to accept that summer
is over and then there are those of us that embrace
the fall season and all that it brings along with it.
There is a whole new list of affiliate opportunities that might make the most
successful blog topic.
School startup is a market all in itself with school clothes, supplies, and
electronics except for those that are in a year-round school system. Do the
Snow shovels, board games, flashlights, warm clothes, and snow tires, just
to name a few of the items that I have noticed that come down the conveyor
belts at UPS and FedEx during the winter months.
I am sure you can come up with more when you make your list of activities
Santa Clause always comes to my mind as do most things that we were
raised around, or that shared a part in our childhood years. Memories can
be a very powerful thing.
One mention here about the
It is the daze part that I am referring to.
It starts ramping up to a real noticeable level
about 2 weeks before December 25th.
Shoppers go into bat-shit crazy mode and its about 2 weeks till
Christmas that people get that wide-eyed dazed look in their eyes.
Your not safe on the road and do not even think about
trying to get into a department store.
It is like a shopping cart demolition derby!
Shoppers gone wild. LOL
So, get your calendar out and make a list of all the holidays.
Then note the things that you yourself, friend or family member have
purchased beside that holiday.
Write it out.
Make your list and check it twice cause Santa is coming to town!
I hope you have enjoyed your read and my right.
I am sure that most seasoned affiliates and bloggers already go through
some kind of similar process but we are not all seasoned, now are we.
If you would be interested in learning some of those other processes click
and read my review on Wealthy Affiliate.
With that said, I think it is important to set doing anything in life with a
plan in mind and this is just one way that I have come up with to look for
the most successful blog topic that already has relativity going for it.
Human behaviors reaction to anything can be an opportunity!
One more observation should be made and that would be the lead time for
I know writers that submit articles for publication in magazines that have
anything to do with a particular season must do so up to a year in advance
of that season.
Just start making note of when getting that itch to do something or start
looking at certain things with that buying-eye.
