+ As a Christian blogger, there are so many things you can write about to encourage others in their faith. But some newer Christian bloggers may get a bit overwhelmed with what topics they should write about. I’ve put together this list of Christian blog topics along with how you can find an endless supply of blog post ideas all year long!

Popular Christian Blog Topics

When you first start your Christian blog, you might wonder…

  • What are some topics to blog about?
  • What are the most profitable blog topics?
  • What are the most popular topics to blog about?

Before you worry about what to write about, it is very important that you’ve really narrowed down your target audience and really picked a specific sub-niche within the Christian niche.

What I mean is that “Christian niche” is sort of the general category but you can (and should) really focus down more.

There are Christian blogs that publish exclusively faith content (Bible studies, etc). But there are also other types of blogs that also include faith content. Read more about the most popular and profitable blogging niches.

Each sub-niche will have its own list of “popular Christian blog topics” that are specific to that general topic.

I’ve listed some basic examples below to get you started.

 

Exclusively Christian Blog Topics

What are the most popular topics to blog about on a Christian blog that is exclusively faith content?

There are actually quite a lot of topics that are popular for Bible Study blogs because more and more people are going to Google to search for help with studying the Bible.

  • Bible Studies
  • Bible Study Tips
  • Bible Study Resources
  • Bible Study Printables
  • Bible Verses About Posts

 

Christian Parenting Blog Topics

Christian parenting blogs are quite popular because they can be tailored to provide encouragement and resources to parents in a variety of seasons (new parents, stay at home moms, single moms, moms of preschoolers, moms of teens, etc.).

Some of the more popular (Christian) blog post topics might include:

  • tips for raising Godly kids
  • spiritual growth tips for busy moms
  • resources to help teach kids the Bible
  • Devotionals for moms

Some popular (general) blog post topics might include things like:

  • organization tips for busy moms
  • organization tips for WAHMS with small children at home
  • tips to help balance mom duties with homeschool
  • seasonal activities for kids (age-appropriate)
  • holiday content (gift guides, family traditions, etc)
  • Home activities
  • Crafts and DIY Projects (that kids can also do)
  • mom self-care
  • meal prep and recipes

Again, these are just some ideas. It is so important that you really research your target audience to find out what they are actually searching Google for.

 

How to Find New Christian Blog Post Ideas

To ensure you are reaching your target audience, it is important to create new and engaging content that serves them. The best way to approach this is to create a 12-month content plan so you aren’t fretting over what to write each week.

But what happens after that first year is over? How do you find NEW content ideas?

 

Know Your Target Audience

The biggest thing with coming up with more blog post ideas is to ensure you’ve fully defined and researched your target audience (Avatar). This is the most crucial step that is so often overlooked by most Christian bloggers. When you really know WHO you are writing for, you will be able to more easily come up with ideas based on the different categories of content you’ll be producing.

Knowing your target audience enables you to stay focused on writing content that directly serves them and makes it easier to find popular topics to continue writing about.

 

Google Keyword Search

Google is literally a goldmine for finding Christian blog topics to write about! This is where people go to find answers to all their questions.

The best part is there are some great tools that can help you find out exactly what people are typing into that Google search box (and how many people are searching for it!).

I use a browser extension called Keywords Everywhere that gives me the average search volume and related searches for anything I search for.

Watch this video which shows you exactly how to research a topic to find popular blog post ideas using Google.

 

Pinterest

Pinterest is another goldmine for finding popular topics to write about on your Christian blog.

You can use it to search for general topic ideas and find what is trending or what is popular.

Just remember, in order to be successful with Pinterest, you’ll need to ensure you create really great, engaging pins.

 

Google Analytics 

Google Analytics is literally a goldmine of information that you should be using to improve your Christian blog strategy! This tool tracks EVERYTHING that happens with your site. Most newer bloggers find it a bit overwhelming, but with the right “cheat sheet” you can find what you are needing to help you create more content for your readers.

Google Analytics enables you to see exactly which posts are getting the most visitors, as well as how they got to it. You can find out which posts are showing up in organic searches on Google, which posts are getting the most traffic from Pinterest, and which posts are getting the most traffic from your different social channels.

 

Top Post from Organic Traffic

To find out what content is getting the most traffic from Google searches (organic visitors), you can filter by:

  • Acquisitions – All Traffic – Channels then on the page that displays, click “Organic Search
  • Next, above the “keyword” column, click on “Secondary Dimension” and click Behavior – Landing Page

This list will be the top 10 URL’s on your site that were visited through organic (Google) search queries. Create an excel document and write these down in it.

**For those of you still learning SEO, this also indicates which posts are actually being found in Google searches. 

 

Top Posts from Pinterest

To find out what content is getting the most traffic from Pinterest (organic visitors), you can filter by:

  • Acquisitions – All Traffic – Channels then on the page that displays, click “Social Channels” then “Pinterest”
  • Next, above the “keyword” column, click on “Secondary Dimension” and click Behavior – Landing Page

 

Top Posts from Social Channels

To find out what content is getting the most traffic from Google searches (organic visitors), you can filter by:

  • Acquisitions – All Traffic – Channels then on the page that displays, click “Social Channels” then click the one showing traffic.
  • Next, above the “keyword” column, click on “Secondary Dimension” and click Behavior – Landing Page

 

Brainstorm New Ideas!

Now that you have a list of your current top-performing posts, you can begin brainstorming and doing keyword research so you can write the content in a way that gets it ranking with Google.

SEO is so important for helping you to reach your target audience because it is the way that Google is able to rank your content in search results.

I hope this tutorial has been helpful! I know how frustrating it can be to always need to be publishing new and fresh content to keep your readers happy. Take the guesswork out of it by using Google Analytics so you can see exactly what has interested them in the past. This is the key to having an unending list of topics to write about AND continually contribute to the SEO foundation of your Christian blog.
