How often do you catch yourself day dreaming about owning a 6 figure blog that brings in monthly income on autopilot?
You think about the days that you’ll wake up and see PayPal and Stripe notifications of payments received on your website while you were sleeping.
You know, those $1,000 revenue days where you feel like you’ve made it. Forget making $1,000/week, you’ve got your website producing $1,000/day.
Sounds like the dream right?
I had this dream as a freshman in college at Ohio State.
By the time I graduated 3.5 years later, I had built a 5 figure per year online business as a result of blogging and it’s allowed me to buy an apartment building investment property at age 22, travel to many amazing cities, and feel at peace that my financial future is secure.

How to Choose a Profitable Blog Niche
Before we jump to the list of 34 different profitable blog niche ideas below, you first need to understand this important concept.
Starting a blog is going to be hard work and take lots of effort if you want to grow it into a successful online business. Every day there are millions of new blogs starting up for the first time, which means you must make your blog unique in order to stand out.
Because a blog takes a lot of man hours and hard work to grow, you need to select a niche that you are passionate about.
Imagine if you hate calculus but for some odd reason you decided to start a blog around calculus. Do you think you could maintain the blog for several years, writing hundreds of articles and social media posts about calculus without burning out and hating yourself?
Step 1 is to screen your blog idea with a simple question “Would I be passionate enough about this idea if I wasn’t going to make any money at all”
If the answer is no, discard the idea. You can’t choose an idea solely around it’s income potential. You must actually enjoy talking and writing about this idea so that it feels more like a hobby than work.
When I started GolfPracticeGuides.com two and a half years ago, it was because I truly enjoyed golf. I wanted to go to school in Florida to become a golf instructor so that I could spend my life helping kids, competitors, and adults improve their golf games.
