The most popular Blogging niche is Health and Wellness Blog. This day’s various health problem spreading widely, especially obesity is getting more and more widespread. And obesity, diseases, weight loss, fitness, healthy diets and other medical conditions these are the common topics that many people are interested in reading health tips and news every day.
There are a wrong idea that only medical student and highly professional health trainer can create and manage Health/Wellness Blog, but in real anybody can create this type of Blog, if s/he has strong desire and enthusiasm. There is also a great opportunity for you to earn money from Health/Wellness Blog. This niche is very popular among teenage and health conscious people, so there are also big chances to earn good amount of money from this type of niche. The best thing about having this type of Blog you can share your personal health issue with your all audience can‘t say what you can tell and what not?
On the other hand Health/Wellness Blog is very sensitive thing. Blogger must have sound knowledge about their shared tips. So before publishing health related post blogger should do little research on it.
For managing a health Blogging niche you must keep in mind some guideline that will help you to run your Health/Wellness Blog smoothly.
1. Choose Small Health Blogging Niche
At the beginning of Health/Wellness Blog you shouldn’t go over broad niche. It will be a wise decision to start with something narrow idea. For example
- Disease and Disorder Blog
- Weight Loss Blog
- Fitness Professional Blog
- Happiness Blog
- Healthy Living Foodie Blog
- Healthy Living Blog
- Training Blog
- Running Blog
- Balance Diet Blog
The above topics got narrow idea, but you can write couple of years with each health Blog niche. Although obesity is the major worldwide problem, so you can start your Blog with weight loss tips. So first decide what types of Blog you want to start.
2. Research on your topic
For running a health Blog there are not any alternative of research work. Proper research will give you clarity about topic choosing. After choosing right niche you must start writing, and for writing good and authentic content you must research on it. If you don’t research on your topic then you won’t get any important topic to write and share with your Blog readers.
3. Write with trusted Reference
After completing your research work you must concentrate on writing. Health/Wellness Blog writing is not about writing an interesting story. Rather you have to write content on the basis of authentic source with reference. Many new blogger make some grammar and spelling mistake and this is happen, when blogger hasn’t idea about health related problem names. As a result after producing quality and authentic content many blogger lose traffic only for grammatical mistake. When reader see spelling mistakes then a negative impact grow on his/her mind and they switch to another website. Remember that credibility can give you a boost to your traffic.
4. Avoid using Jargons
Most of the health Blog audiences are non-medical professionals and they may not be very familiar with medical parlance. So if you use those words then your readers won’t capable to understand. For this reason use plain English to drive the message. Otherwise Blog readers will treat medical parlance like jargons.
5. Stick to a single topic per post
Your main target should make your Blog content easily understandable for your audience. So when you get a topic idea then strictly stick to the single topic. Don’t mess with one topic with another. Suppose you want to write about healthy living food then don’t try to write about all healthy living food in one topic. Rather split the idea and write on only one topic. For example you are writing about the benefits of “Green Tea” and its impact on health, so only write about that don’t add other “Herbal Tea” benefits on Green Tea’s topic, it can become overwhelming for the audience.
6. Read Other Health Blog
If you want to write a compelling and engaging content then you must read other’s health Blog. You can visit popular health related Blog and there carefully observe how they are producing content? How readers are interacting? After deep observation you can write something better than that Blog. Note that all best writers always read other’s writing.

7. Join in health awareness campaign
This is the best way to grab some Blogging ideas. You can join health awareness campaign they you can share with your readers. This will increase the credibility about your Blog. As well as you will receive more feedback from your audience.
There are many health awareness campaigns you can join. For example
- Quit Smoking Campaign
- HIV Campaign
- Mental Health Campaign
- Substance Abuse Campaign
- Suicide Prevention Campaign
- Dementia Campaign
Those Campaigns are most popular among various classes of people. And I am sure you Blog readers will read those topics like hot cake.
8. Keep Your Blog User-friendly
Although Blog design is not an important factor for Health/Wellness Blog, but sometimes it becomes the key to success. But try to keep your Blog clean and tidy; don’t use excessive ad banner or campaign banner. And most importantly use responsive web design. As a result, user-friendly site structure to help your visitors navigate your site easily. I recommend, use very clean and minimalist design that focuses on being user-friendly and accessible.
9. Promote your Health/Wellness Blog content in Social Media
It goes without say that social media becomes an integral part of a Blogger. You have very good Blog with well design and quality content but you won’t receive high traffic until you share your content in social media sites. There are huge users are using social media for connecting with other people, so this is the chance to divert them into your Blog from various social media sites. For traffic boosting you can share your content on Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest.
10. Manage Your Blog with Caution
Blogger has much freedom to express their thoughts and opinion and grow their outreach. But this is not suitable for all types of Blogging niche. As a health/wellness blogger your responsibilities are much higher than a normal blogger. Because if you share something misleading and your readers get negative result after following your guidelines then your Blog may ruin after certain period of time. Always stick to the doctor and patient code of ethics while blogging.
