Is there a winning formula for choosing Startup Blog Topics?
A beginner or a new comer to blogging world may always ask or think about-What topics should a startup blog be about?
Struggling to find interesting blog post ideas for your blog?
Blogging with a purpose increases market share, consumer engagement, revenue growth, and ROI. Of course, you want to do that.
But a lot of people I know are still stuck on the fundamental question:
What do we blog about?
For brands, the question is easy enough to answer.
You need to understand: 1) what you’re selling, 2) to whom you want to sell, and 3) what blog topics are relevant to both.

Managing Personal Finance appears to be a hot topic as seen by the following two replies.
I) Startups should blog about things that will interest your target audience and people building something in your industry. The content needs to be unique, compelling and worth sharing. Ross Simmonds-Marketer & Founder

Not Managing Your Own Money? At Least Know This. [Video]
Feb 7, 2017 / By Fanoosh Torabi
You may not be a numbers person and despise thinking about money. I get it. (Although, I suspect you may be underestimating yourself.)
Because of this, if you’re in a relationship, you may be inclined to let your partner take the financial reins and oversee your joint accounts. Often times households appoint a spouse as the “CFO,” or chief financial officer, with the good intention of streamlining all the financial bookkeeping and bill payment under one person’s watchful eye. That system has its merits. “While it would be nice to think that every financial decision in a household were made on a 50/50 basis – real life so often gets in the way,” says Manisha Thakor, Director-BAM Wealth Services “In our modern, busy world ‘divide & conquer’ is often the only logistical way to make sure all financial tasks get done.”
But if you’re not the family CFO and/or not interested in personal finance, it’s never an excuse to turn a blind eye to your money. You risk making ill-informed decisions, taking your finances for granted and being financially vulnerable in the event your partner can no longer oversee the bills for any reason.
To avoid such perils, here are critical areas of your financial life that each person in a partnership should understand no matter what.
