When it comes to starting a website, we all have a lot of ideas!
How do you pick the best one and be confident your big idea will work out?
In this post we’ll show you how to pick the best website idea – which is also the most unique for you – in just 3 steps.
All you have to do is answer 3 simple questions.
What is your greatest expertise?
The first question you have to ask yourself (go ahead and ask it outloud, I talk to myself all the time) is:
“What is my greatest expertise?”
In other words, out of say 5 of your best skills, which one has always made you shine the brightest?
These can be intangible things like ability to communicate or teach, or your knowledge of math or finance.
Or it could tangible things like your ability to create pottery or build home improvement projects or baked goods.
Just make a list of 5 things and bring it to step 2.
What information does the world need most?
Some topics where we are super knowledgeable just aren’t that useful. For example I could explain to you how to do a kickflip on a skateboard, but that simply won’t help you if you want easy salmon recipes.
So your next job is to determine what topics the world needs which aren’t covered well enough online!
For example, when I started dearblogge.org the goal was to explain WordPress blog topics better than the experts in the “Codex” were doing.
So, out of your 5 topics where you are an absolute expert, which of these does the world – and the online world – really need?
Narrow down that list by 2-3 topics and head to step 3.
What can you write endlessly about?
The final question you must ask yourself is what can you write for days about.
What topic will you never get sick of writing about and when you get sick of it you take a break then come back even more recharged about?
This is your topic of choice.
Because blogging is tough, blogging involves stress and disappointment. You have to have a lot of faith to succeed as a blogger. You can’t do it for money alone.
So, from the 5 topics where you’re an expert, you take only those which the online world needs, then distill it further to the 1-2 topics you can write forever about.
The last choice of which topic from your 1-2 list to pick is up to you. Of course, we’re sort of experts on picking the best blog topics too.
Conclusion: When will you start your blog?
If the above information didn’t help you maybe this eloquent quote will:
Your perfect blog topic lies at the interaction of your greatest gifts and the world’s greatest needs.
