If you work properly on an event blog and able to rank it in Google, then you can easily make hell of money in just 2-3 days.
Here I am sharing some Event Blogging tips to succeed in this niche.
What is Event Blogging?
Event Blog is a micro-niche blog, in which bloggers write on a very particular topic like Eid, Deepawali, Holi, Happy New Year, Valentine’s Day etc. or some concerts etc.
It focuses on an upcoming festival, event or special day like I mentioned above. An Event Blog targets huge amount of traffic for the upcoming events, festivals etc.
It’s a short term blog and you just have to work on it for 1 month or so. Make it rank in Google and enjoy the money rain.
Event Blogging Topics:
- What is a particular day like Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day?
- When it is observed?
- Where it is observed?
- Why it is observed?
- How it is observed?
- Who observe it?
You have to answer all these questions in your Event Blog for your readers in detail with information like images, videos, quotes etc.
This is the main concept of Event Blogging.
There are mainly 2 types of Event Blogs:
- Long-Term Event Blogs
- Short-Term Event Blogs
Long-Term Event Blogs:
This type of event blogging is done for a long time. Let us explain how? Suppose you are writing an article on someone’s birthday, then it is considered blogging for a long time.
This type of event blogging is not called festival event blogging. Because if you are writing an article on someone’s birthday, then it goes to the event blog for a long time.
If you write an article on someone’s birthday every day, then you will get traffic every day. Because every day someone’s birthday happens. Every day the birthdays of millions of people are celebrated.
Some of the topics for long term event blogging are like: Birthday, Good Morning, Good Night, Good Evening, Good Afternoon etc.
If you write an article on any of these topics, then such articles are called long-term event blogging.
Short-Term Event Blogs:
For a short time, event blogging is targeted by thinking about a particular day. Articles written in this category do not remain in rank for long. This is because the articles written in event blogging for a short time are such articles which we don’t search every day.
For example, if you have written an article on New Year, then it will come in blogging for a short time. Because people search about things based on New Year mostly when New Year is near. After that no one searches about these topics.
Similarly, if you want to write about Deepawali, then people mostly read about the things related to Deepawali only when Deepawali is around. This is called short term event blogging.
Some of the topics related to short term event blogging are like Republic Day, New Year, Holi, Deepawali, Saraswati Puja, Ganesh Puja, Christmas, Dussehra etc.
What is the extent of Event Blogging?
Everybody wants to know about something, like teenagers want to know about Valentine’s Day. Kids want to know about Mother’s Day. Some people want to know about the National festivals like Independence Day, Republic Day etc.
It means your audience is the Whole World. You just have to create good content for them and make them satisfy.
What your Audience want to know in an Event Blog?
People/Audience wants to know mainly about 2 questions. When and How to observe any day or event? You can tell them how to celebrate or observe an event. You can also share your affiliate links on your blog from where people can buy on a specific day.
Nowadays your niche is expanding, as policymakers are adding new days in the list. So there are more and more chances of money making with an Event Blog.
Now comes the most important part, How to choose your Blogging Niche/Event?

To pick any Event, first categorize it. Every event has a different mood. Some events are for public awareness, some for joy, and some for sorrow.
Make categories of the events.
- Religious: Deepawali, Eid, Christmas etc.

- Patriotism: Independence Day, Republic Day etc.

Use Google Trends to find the competition and monthly searches of the keywords or ideas of your event.
Purchase a Domain
Purchase a nice domain name with the target keyword including in it. It increases the CTR of your blog. If you are going for any Indian Event or Festival then go for an “.in” extension.
If you are targeting international audience then go for “.com” or “.net” extension.

Do extensive research for all the events and make a separate word file for each with the relevant information in it. Then edit the unnecessary part and keep the best data with you.
Crosscheck all the minor details also, like the dates, name, year etc. So now you have a well-organized info file with you.
