Today, I’ve put together a few blog types that you may or may not want to avoid. One of the first things that happens when starting a blog is not knowing the direction that you want to go in, so this may serve as a means for you to get an idea of what you want to do. Granted, like I said, if you want to be different, these types of blogs are also ones you might want to avoid entirely.

The Teen Rambler Blog

As a teen, I started blogging back when MySpace was popular (bleh), and for some reason, I thought I would get rich and famous doing it. Neither of those things happened. But if you’re a teen MUO reader, I recommend that you get out there and just start writing whatever comes to mind.

Why? In most cases, what you write now isn’t going to be huge (I’m not saying it can’t), but it’s great practice for your future to just jot something down every once in a while List It And Achieve It With 43Things.com Though New Year's resolutions and goals could easily be typed and printed out on a sheet of paper, 43Things.com offers more useful features than pen and paper, and it provides a simple method for managing...

The Mom Blog

A lot of moms out there can get stressed due to the day-to-day life of raising their kids (along with work), and often, this doesn’t leave enough time for creativity. So how do we fix this? Just break out a combo attack with the Mom Blog. Simply put, you can blog about your kids, for there are certainly a lot of great stories to choose from when it comes to this subject.

What makes the deal even sweeter is that since you’ve set time out to write about your family, you will likely have time to think of those personal topics that you love writing about.

The Philosophy Blog

The Philosophy Blog goes into deep emotional thought and dives into the darker untraveled regions of the human mind. Here on these blogs, we will take simple thoughts and break them down into very confusing anecdotes.


Am I against thinking? No. I will just say that I personally have not found many philosophy blogs that have a lot of readers – maybe one or two – so tread carefully, my friend. However, I may just be looking in the wrong places.

The Tech Blog

Well, you’re on a tech blog right now, so part of me thinks I shouldn’t have even included this. However, if you’re really into techy stuff, you should go ahead and give this one a shot.

What might get you a number of readers is doing tutorials on how to fix (commonly-Googled 3 Chrome Extensions That Clean Up the Internet The internet can be a dirty place.

However, if you have a passion for electronic devices, you might want to go that route. Either way, the Tech Blog has been on the rise for quite a while now, and you really can’t go wrong with it.


The Political Rant Blog

I don’t like politics – hate it honestly. However, if you are a politically-minded person Google Puts Election Coverage At Your Finger Tips [News] Just in time for the Iowa Caucuses, Google released this week its US election coverage website which brings together the news, opinions, videos, and other resources that you might find in a Google search on... Read More , then why not do something about it? Simply go out and make a blog that surrounds politics, and your fiery argumentative heart will finally have an outlet. This blog could simply regurgitate your own views, or it could bash the views of others.

I couldn’t personally stand to write the Political Rant Blog, but if you feel the need to do so, then by all means do it.

The Gourmet Blog

I haven’t yet met a person that doesn’t like food, and in fact, I hear there are people that actually like making it. If you’re a blogger that happens to have a knack for fixing things up in the kitchen, I recommend that you do us all a favor and write a Gourmet Blog.

Why? With this personal publication, you can publish your recipes and tips for your delicious food 4 Crazy Websites All About Crazy Food Although you can find pictures and news on just about anything online, as of recently I've become more of a "foodie."

The Neglected Blog

7 Types Of Blogs You Can Write [Opinion] ignored blog

If you’re like me, you have become so busy that you can’t maintain a personal blog. However, you may still have that desire to place personal thoughts on the screen, and you still need an outlet. What I suggest is making a blog, and write on it whenever you feel like doing it. Don’t apologize to readers because you “haven’t written for so long”. They won’t care, for if they like your stuff, they are willing to wait. So go ahead. Neglect your blog.


There are a billion jillion types of blogs you could be writing right now, so the above items are only a small segment of possibilities. Hopefully, these may help you get started in the direction you want to go in, but they also might let you know what you don’t want to write.

What other types of blogs do you know of? Are there any types of blogs you don’t like? Are there any that you like specifically?

    could i write a blog that is like a combo of my life, high school, occasional tips on something, my religion, and like, random- but not too random.

      Hey...Leslie, It is ok to write things about your life and religion. But it is not good to mix business with religion or your life story. There are many that do this, and I heard it is wrong though.

    Who cares about the proper use of the English language, there are a lot of Bloggers making a lot of money providing wonderful advice...also on TV; Wendy Williams sounds terrible but she is a multimillionaire! If you can't write very well eventually hire someone to help you, or enlist a friend.

    How about a respect-the-English-language-and-use-it-properly blog? Many would-be "writers" use English as does a moon cow! "As" is the proper word, NOT "like"! ["I feel as if I were ...".]Objects in sentences must agree in number with their antecedents, or plurality! A writer needs to use the language medium as a skilled writer, NOT AS SOME AMATEUR fiddling in his basement looking for something to do and "recognition" as well.

    Does it have to be that focused, or is it ok (i.e. would get a lot of visits) if it's just about whatever, but it's funny? So a funny blog, does that exist?

    You should check out Soul Pancake, a project from the hilarious Rainn Wilson of The Office. I just found this site yesterday and haven't signed up yet, but, I mean, it's friggin' Dwight Schrute, so it's physically impossible to suck. XD

      Honestly, in my opinion, you should write whatever in the world you want. If you're good, I'm sure people that like it will keep coming. However, I don't even know what would get visits and what wouldn't. This is mostly an article to spark ideas and get you started.

      I've heard of Soul Pancake. Rainn Wilson is brilliant.

      Blogger.com is what I used to use, and although sometimes Blogger blogs don't look incredibly professional, that's just because people don't always use it to its full potential.
