40 Profitable Blog Ideas 2018

Interested in starting a blog in 2018? Blogging is so awesome. It’s very rewarding to share your experience and knowledge with others. You can develop a following, make friends, network, and make money. In fact, blogging can be very, very lucrative. Michelle makes over $50,000 per month (yes, I said per month) from her blog. Ashli makes $5K-$7K monthly from her brand new blog!

Join the bandwagon!

I started blogging a few years ago after the successful sale of my ecommerce business. I had worked with bloggers and influencers all throughout my ecommerce career. I never really knew what bloggers had to gain, other than free stuff, until I came across one of Michelle’s income report pins on Pinterest.

The pin led me to an article which revealed a $69K month she had from blogging!

I was simply floored. I dove in, learning as much as I could about blogging. Two weeks later, I launched my first blog. That blog earned me five figures less than a year later when I sold and started my blog flipping business. More on that here.

Ok, so let’s get to profitable blog ideas.

How to Pick a Profitable Blog Idea

Not every niche is created equally. Some are profitable and some are not. There is more to blogging than making money. You get a really great feeling helping others, teaching what you know and making connections but, it’s not bad to profit from your blog, that you pour hours of hard work and energy into.

  • These are great ideas. My blog has recipes and lifestyle posts, but I keep my niche to local as well. I do enjoy making connections with bloggers, both local and from all over the world.

  • What a great list. I’m launching a new blog on 5/1 that will combine a few of these. I hope to monetize this one faster than my first blog. I also pinned this! Your blog has great info.

  • That is a great list, surely anyone looking to blog will be able to find a niche to blog about. I didn’t see my nice, which is photography because I am a photographer (go figure, huh? ? ) But you did list small business’s and careers so photography would fit in to those two niche’s. I know it definitely can be hard to be profitable on my blog. I am fairly new so I’m not giving up.
