Who finds that choosing a topic for a blog is the hardest part of the whole process? You also need to choose a topic that is of interest to lots of people - and to the people in your market. What are you promoting with your blog? Is it a product or a service? Are you just blogging for the fun of it and for social interaction? I'm thinking that most folks blog to promote something. You need to choose your blog topics carefully. If you need to promote a product or service, it is important to make sure and pick a topic and keywords that people are searching for - you can use the Google Keyword Tool to find keywords that are hot right now and then tie them into your theme somehow. Make sure and use your keyword frequently and ALWAYS put the keyword in the title and subtitles of your blog. That is essential. Blogs should be at least 300 words and you should make them funny and interesting. You should add pictures and videos - make sure they are properly tagged. Best of luck with your blogging!
If you are blogging for money then you should choose blog niche, topic based on keyword research and always try to optimize less competitive keywords for better earning in short period of time, I would say.
