How to Start a Music Blog That Fans Will Love

Have you ever wanted to share your passion for music? A music blog can be your space to discuss the songs and artists you love.

However, getting started can be daunting–creating a music blog is more than publishing one or two articles. You need your own site, strong visual design to appeal to your target audience, components to share the texts, audio, and video you create and curate, and promotional tactics to make your blog stand out.

Of course, you also need to have something to say about the music you love too. Maybe you’ll even need to recruit other writers to share their voices too. It sounds like you have your work cut out for you.

Choose your blogging niche

Selecting the right blog niche is a crucial step in creating a successful and engaging music-related blog. The niche you choose will determine the focus of your content and the specific audience you aim to target. For example, here are several music-related niches and blog examples you could consider.

  • Music education and tutorials: Provide resources for learning musical instruments, music theory and production techniques. Offering valuable tips can attract a dedicated audience of aspiring musicians and enthusiasts.

  • Music industry trends and insights: Analyze current trends, news and developments in the music industry. You could blog on things like "Music Industry Insights: Breaking Down the Latest Trends,” "The Future of Streaming: A Deep Dive” and "Navigating Copyright Laws in the Music Business.”

  • Artist spotlight and reviews: Showcase emerging and established artists, sharing their stories, music and creative processes. Artist spotlights can foster a strong community around your blog. Blog examples for this niche: "Rising Stars: Music Artists to Watch,” "Behind the Scenes with Music Icons” and "In Conversation with Indie Musicians.”

  • Music event and festival guides: Create guides, and recommendations for music festivals, concerts and live events. Attendees of music events often seek information about lineups, venues, ticketing and preparation. Event guides can attract a passionate and engaged audience.

  • Music production techniques and equipment reviews: Explore music production methods, software tools, hardware reviews and studio setups. Aspiring music producers and enthusiasts are keen to improve their skills and stay updated on the latest equipment. Offering detailed insights can position you as a knowledgeable resource.
