115 Trending Blog Topics & Ideas For 2022

It’s the jackpot of the blogging world. Find trending blog topics and ride the wave of popularity. Is it down to luck or is there a sure-fire way of spotting trends?

Read on for a list of 115 trending blog topics updated for 2022. Use the list right now for your blog topics and posts. This list is current at the time of writing and based on Pinterest Predicts 2022 – a go-to set of trends for any on-the-pulse blogger.

Trends come and go, and to stay on track it will be important to seek out hot new topics as the year progresses. I’ve added some suggested sources – you can use these for your own research to be one of the first to spot the latest trends for 2022…

All these blog topic ideas are based on sound money-making niches such as home decor or health and fitness. Niches that pander to our aspirations. You can find a more detailed list of the types of blogs that make money in my Ultimate Start A Blog Guide.

In the blogging world, not all niches are equal and some are easier to monetize, but the basic principle is to write about popular topics.

Find a trending subject, promote for free on Pinterest, learn some SEO and you’re on your way to making your first blogging income…

The world is still in a very strange place at the moment and although we all hope and expect things to get better for 2022, we could be looking at a new normality.

That doesn’t mean you can’t start a blog or continue to write for an existing blog. It’s a great time to be blogging! People are spending a lot more time online and this will continue into 2022. We all need blogs right now and new material to keep us occupied!

Trending blog topics tend to be the new ideas that come almost out of nowhere. Pinterest Predicts helps spot these new trends but doesn’t highlight the existing big topics, for example, bread making is always popular but just isn’t trending.

Here are a few main topics that are expected to be big in 2022…

Work from home

Work from home has been a massive trending topic in 2020 and 2021- no prizes for guessing this one. It’s back up there again in importance for 2022. You can see the big jump in Pinterest trends.

The emphasis changed for this “work from home” keyword. Instead of ways to make money from home, people wanted to know how to set up their home office. How to fix up standing desks and connect up to Zoom meetings.

That said, Pinterest predicts an increased interest in turning pastimes into a payday. Although not everyone enjoys working from home, there are plenty who’ve had a taste of it and don’t want to return to the workplace. Millennials are looking for business ideas based on pastimes they love. Some are just looking for side hustles to boost their income but others are looking for fulfilling business ideas based on their hobbies and interests.

Food

Looking for a sure-fire blogging topic – pick food. It continues to be one of the top-performing topics for bloggers and there’s no sign of it letting up for 2022.

Yes, it’s competitive but food will always be a big topic. If you can come up with on-trend recipes and take great pictures, you have a winning format for a food blog.

In the UK, baking has been big ever since the Great British Bake Off launched, and people and there’s no sign of this interest letting up. Cupcakes have had their moment but there’s huge interest in elaborately decorated cakes. It’s a theme that goes hand in hand with the growing importance of tea parties, so if you bake this could be your year!

The other big food trend is getting back to our roots. Watch out for increased interest in traditional recipes. We want to eat like our grandparents or somebody else’s grandparents…

Travel blogs

It’s been a tough few years for travel bloggers but there’s hope out there. For 2022, Pinterest expects travel to be back on the cards.

The predicted travel trend is for all-inclusive travel. People are searching for luxury getaways, where they can be pampered and feel safe and secure. Holidays where people can unplug and relax.

It’s maybe not ideal for your independent travel blog writer, but compared with the past few years at least things, seem to be moving again. Plus these are just trends. For everyone looking to avoid packed itineraries and lounge poolside, there will still be a hardcore of travelers looking to take in the sights. So keep on writing…

Lifestyle

While all different types of lifestyle blogs will find followers, there’s one theme that’s emerging as a definite trend for 2022 – Luxe. Maybe we’ve just had enough of doom and gloom and want a bit more bling in our lives.

Look out for luxe bathrooms and spruced-up motors. Anything to take our mind off reality.

Crafts

Adults will be seeking out their inner child this year. Crafts for adults will be a big trend so if you’re a crafts blogger it’s all good news.

If your focus is normally on children, it could be time to broaden your scope – adults want to join in on playtime!

Health & Fitness

Low-impact seems to be the big fitness trend for 2022. Think walking in nature, simple workouts in bed, and easy dance moves. It’s less about getting fit and more about feeling better.

It’s fitness for everyone, rather than punishing regimes of weight loss and HITT. perhaps hand-in-hand with low impact exercise is the trend towards spirituality. We’re getting in touch with our inner self.

Beauty

Fun seems to be the big beauty trend in 2022. From bejeweled accessories to vibrant electric colors. It seems nothing will be too much.

Add big hair with space buns and high puff hairstyles or outlandish rebel cuts.

Personal finance

Another big money earner is blogging about personal finance and it’s about to get a boost with Millenials taking control of their finances.

Searches for investment tips are on the up as Millenials learn how to budget and get interested in managing their own money.

115 trending blog topics

It’s all change for blog topic trends for 2022 compared with the list I put together for 2021. Trends for a simpler life are being replaced with a desire for fun.

Many of us may still be working from home, but we’re adding color to our lives, planning impromptu parties with close friends, and celebrating.

Rapid change may well continue to be a feature of 2022 so keep an eye out for updated ideas and new blog topics with Pinterest trends.

So there you have it! 115 blog ideas to help you answer what to blog about! Some of these ideas can be blog posts to write straightaway or topics you can use for your blogging niche.

It’s far easier to capture an audience with a clearly defined niche. Just because it’s a niche doesn’t mean it can’t have a huge audience. Just think, a niche such as home-made bread, gets 1 million+ searches on Pinterest a year!

Successful Niche Blogs

The site Aura Aura has been going since 2017, and the aura trend is certainly not a new concept. Being on-trend just means the site can expect a really good year in 2022.

Some of the ideas on this list are more niche than others. The trend for all-exclusive holidays comes and goes and has been around for years. A specific trend such as a nature-themed classroom is likely to be too small for a whole blog topic. It’s better to start a niche blog about young children’s education and write a few posts about bringing nature into the classroom.

Think about yourself as the reader. Is this a topic that could become a major interest or hobby, such as art cake ideas? Or is it more of a one-off – something like galaxy nail art?

By all means, hop on a trend but for real success make sure there’s sufficient long-term interest for when the trend starts to fade.

It’s a gamble. If you rush out and start a blog about dog day beds tomorrow, the trend may have passed by the time your blog is established. Real trendsetters will be writing about topics months before they hit the Pinterest Trending list.

Here are a few alternative sources if you’re serious about being on trend:

Checking out the daily search patterns is just a bit overwhelming. Google’s Year In Search is more enlightening. You can also search in trends for your chosen niche. “How to be happy alone” was a sad reflection of 2021.

Quora

Want to know what questions people are asking? Quora is a good place to look. Search for a topic and a list of questions will appear. Pick out the recent results a high number of answers.

Reddit

Exploring sub-reddits is a great way to find the trending issues people care about in your chosen niche. It’s an excellent market research tool. Used with discretion, you can get direct feedback on ideas for your niche.

Answer The Public

Want to know the questions people are asking right now? Answer The Public is a free resource providing the questions people are currently asking for any keyword.

Pick a question and turn it into a blog topic for amazing results. It’s worked for me and I’m sure it can work for you too!

Google

Just type your topic into Google directly. Scroll down and find the People Also Ask box. Just like Answer The Public, these are questions people are searching for right now.

Google may be a little slower to respond and update than Pinterest and other social media channels, but it’s still an excellent source of information for your next blog post.

Every month Pinterest comes up with some ideas for trending topics. These results are often bang up-to-date although expect fast-changing trends in these uncertain times.

Conclusion – Picked Your Blog Topic? What Comes Next…

Don’t take too long choosing a topic. The best bit about blogging is it’s okay to fail. The worse thing you can do is never start.

Pick a blog topic and follow my Ultimate Start A Blog Guide to make a success of 2022.

These are great suggestions - thank you for delivering them straight to my inbox! I have a travel blog and I am just starting to get the hang of keyword research. It's certainly a long game (at least in my experience). It's great to have some ideas though that are already researched.

Alison Wright

Pleased you found the blog ideas helpful. I suggest you keep an eye out for Pinterest's monthly predictions for trending topics. A lot of travel bloggers seem to do well out of really owning a specific location. Provided it's somewhere with a lot of interest, try and become the go-to source.

Good Job Alison. I have looked at the suggestions and I am thinking to writting on Food blogs, I have started with lose weight, but are there anything special that I need to include while writting?

Alison Wright

Sunday 20th of September 2020

Hi Mark your best bet is to search for the questions people ask and write posts answering those questions. You can find questions on Answer The Public, Quora or just by typing topics into Google. Use ubersuggest.com or similar to get a rough idea of how hard it is to rank for the keywords (3 to 5 word phrase) and go for really easy keywords starting out. I suggest an SD (SEO difficulty) of less than 10 on ubersuggest. Also check to see if other new blogs have managed to rank of the keywords you're targeting - it makes it more achievable. Learn some SEO basics. Yoast is a reasonable place to start and most people use their free plugin. (You don't need the paid version). Just remember people are mainly interested in themselves and their own problems so your blog needs to provide the answers and inspiration they are actively searching for. You wont be successful with all posts. Your success rate could be as low as 1 in 10 but when you get one post to rank well it starts making a difference to the rest of your blog.

Hi Alison,

Hope you are safe and well. I really enjoyed reading your post, refreshing and inspiring. I am a full time working mother of three children and with the current lock down situation have just decided to start a blog, and have chosen 2 topics( Food, personal Finance). Now my questions are: about food, 1/ is not best to make videos? or can include videos in my blog? 2/can i start with just a good camera phone, or do i need professional pictures?3/ can i include personal finance as a side topic, or alternate between both?

many thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Nadege. Terrific to hear that you're starting a blog. It sounds like you're a very busy woman so I suggest you focus on a blog rather than a YouTube channel. Of course you can include videos on your blog and host them on YouTube. It's not essential but it's a great way to get your posts ranked on Google. (Google owns and loves YouTube). The advantage of a blog is it's less demanding - you can take time off when life gets busy and not lose out on traffic. Take a look at Gathering Dreams as an example of someone who's pulled off combining food and finances (and travel) in a blog. It's certainly possible. The owner launched in the heyday of Pinterest (before it changed it's algorithm) which certainly helped her blog grow quickly. It's harder now but if you follow my tips on keywords and SEO you can still do well. I still recommend using Pinterest as your social media channel for this type of blog. Good lighting is the key to good pictures. You can buy lighting set ups quite cheaply (try Amazon). You may find your phone takes adequate pictures. Otherwise invest in a reasonable digital camera. If you can take your own original pictures it's the best way to go. Pinterest loves original photos. Hope this helps. Alison

Hi Alison,

After reading your post, I cannot say I have writer's block!! Wow, that's a comprehensive list of topics. I'm going to bookmark this post to come back to it often. Thanks for sharing. I'll be sharing it with my blogger's community.

Alison Wright

Thank you Nadim. Coming up with topics is the easy part - coming up with topics based around keywords relevant to your blog or website is a little harder.

Hi ma'am, chirag this side. is it necessary to pick a niche upon which we want to write. I want to start writing with every trending topics. Please suggest

Alison Wright

Monday 4th of May 2020

Hi Chirag Unless you have a big budget and an army of writers at your disposal you really need to pick a niche or pick a target audience. For example you can write about 2 or 3 different topics if they are likely to appeal to your target reader. If you write about all trending topics you'll find it very hard to get readers returning to your site. Take a look at this post to get a better idea https://simplyhatch.com/blogging-best-practices/
