Get settled on a niche(topic) first

Start a blog on the niche you are passionate about. If you are not interested in that thing you will ultimately get bored after a few months.

Try to read the articles already available on that niche if you feel bored then never opt that subject.

Once you are determined about that niche then start

the process to find post ideas. You have to find the viral or latest content pages related to your subject.

Tip : 1- You can find the latest topics by putting in your keyword in the search bar of  buzzsumo.com. It will show you the latest viral content.  Google trends also shows you the latest trend of a particular keyword for free.

With this you will find your competitors and their high ranking posts. Then you have to make better quality content on those viral posts.

Better quality content means expanding the list of your competitors’ posts with quality. For example if competitors post have 10 ways to do XYZ then you try to write 40 or 60 ways to do XYZ but maintain the quality, don’t write rubbish things.

Another example for you, when you are competing on the topic “how to make a pizza”. Then write it with more details like temperatures at which it can be baked,

using hot or cold water, use tap water or filtered water, detail about the timing to keep it in the oven. In short give your reader minute details with facts.

Address the problem of 130 crore people and you will find wholesale traffic for your blog. Solving their problems is the main way to your niche(topic) for your blog.

There are many topics, I can recommend you some if you want.

For example, ‘government job’ is a high traffic and low competition niche. Try to solve the problems of the unemployed in your unique way, they will surely like it.
