What interesting blogging topics could you approach when trying to get into affiliate marketing?

There are so many blogging topics or niches that you could approach. Most of the time when people want to start a blog, they tend to struggle with what they will blog about. My answer to them is to start blogging about what you love and create a blogging business around that topic or niche.

But if you don’t exactly know what you love or what you are passionate about, then don’t worry; most people struggle to answer one simple question:

“What do I love to do?”

Check out our post: “What should I blog about?” if you are struggling to decide on what your blogging direction will be.

While you figure that out, here is a few interesting blogging topics you could consider as a viable blogging option:

Blogging Topics to Consider


Who doesn’t like food? I would eat all day if I could. There are so many niches to choose from within the food topic, for example:

  • Deserts;
  • Food competitions;
  • Barbeques; and
  • Healthy food.

There are also quite a few food-related affiliate programs. Food has such a unique aspect to it, many people relate to food in their own unique way. This makes it easy to be a viable blogging option.


One of the blogging topics that has so much potential, there are so many technological developments going on in the world and this gives you the opportunity to not only create content around these developments but also to promote them through affiliate programs.

Your niche within this topic can be anything from writing posts about the newest smartphones, to creating guides on how to use certain products. An interesting affiliate program you can check out is Gearbest’s Affiliate program.

Health and Fitness

This is one the most popular blogging topics. There are so many people who have started blogs to teach people how to stay healthy and fit. People are always looking for the next great eating plan that will help them lose weight faster or how to keep their skin looking young and beautiful.

Fitness is also such an important topic, as healthy eating and fitness, most of the time go hand-in-hand.

But as always, you need to focus on a niche within each topic, for example:

  • Healthy eating for men/women;
  • Fitness programs for men/women;
  • Healthy eating for kids.

This is because this topic is extremely competitive. But it is still possible to make an impact online, you just need a unique catch/niche.


Sports have been around for so long, it has become so entwined in our cultures. It is who we are and what represents us. This is true for a lot of people and they can get hyped up about their sport any day.

This is certainly an interesting topic to approach for blogging and affiliate marketing. It is a great topic, because of how much free content is available to you. There are always new sporting competitions going on and this allows you to create content for those competitions.

Affiliate marketing is also a big possibility for this topic. For example:

Beauty and Fashion

Creating content that is focused on these blogging topics will certainly bring in a huge amount of readers, as long as you have a unique perspective on the topic.

Fashion is also a topic that is always active in the world, new fashion trends are always on the rise. New and old brands bring out exciting new products every day and people will want to know about these products, as well as buy them if they are interested.

This makes it easy for you to promote affiliate products to them.


Music to me is amazing. I could talk about music all the, as I spent at least 60% of my day listening to music. Maybe I should start a Music blog. (Haha)

New music is coming out constantly, as well as new kinds of music. There is also older music, which is still relevant in modern times. A music blog can go in any direction, for example:

  • Sharing news about new music;
  • Creating “How to” guides on how to play an instrument;
  • Sharing your experience of music events;
  • And many more niche topics.

There are a lot of affiliate programs available for music niches, such as the iTunes Affiliate program.


Another topic I absolutely love. I love traveling to amazing places, I think my favourite place I have visited is the Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa. Such an amazing view from the top of the mountain.

If you are a traveler and you want to share your journey with the world, then start a blog about it. It is possible to build a huge audience as a traveler, as well as promote products related to travel on your blog.

Combining vlogging and blogging within this niche can be amazing. Some people prefer videos, others prefer reading blogs. I think it would be a good choice to do both within this niche.


Financial blogs are quite interesting. Most of the time, they are about how you can better manage your finances, where you can invest to increase your finances and what it took to build the financial Kingdom of the richest people in the world.

There are also a lot of different blogs related to financial tools and how to use them. Every topic can be niched down to allow you to focus on a specific audience and potentially stand out.


Gaming has become one to the most popular blogging topics in the last few years, especially with the rise of E-Sports. E-Sport gaming is a rapidly growing industry, that will continue to grow in the next 10 years and after that.

There are so many different niches within the gaming topic, as well as affiliate marketing opportunities. For example, promoting:

  • Merchandise;
  • Games;
  • Software;
  • Hardware;
  • 3rd Party devices;
  • And many more.

Graphic Design

The last topic you can consider is graphic design, it is such an interesting subject. There are so many niches within this topic, as there are so many different things you can do as a graphic designer. You can create content on how to do a certain type of design, such as creating logos, illustrations or business cards.

There are quite a few affiliate marketing programs within the graphic design industry. One of those that you could check out, is Adobe’s affiliate program.

It is important to choose a topic that you know you will be able to write about each day or each week. Don’t choose a topic because it can make you the most money, choose something you love and create a blogging business around that.
