In Event Blogging, we write blogs on specific events such as Mother’s Day, Father’s day, Pakistan super league(PSL), etc. Event blogging is very similar to other types of blogging but the key difference is that we get more traffic/users for the short term.
In event blogging usually, we write blogs on micro-niches therefore event blogging is usually considered “micro-niche blogging”. Event blogging is about the special days, festivals, and upcoming events therefore most niches related to event blogging contain the word of the day such as labor day, Defense day, etc.
In event blogging usually, the event blogger targets upcoming events/festivals/special days. Event bloggers start to write blogs on that event before coming to that event. Usually, when the event blogger starts to write blogs then there are few searches and low trends. But when the event/festival/day is near to come then searches and trends start to increase. As a result, event bloggers succeed to get more traffic.
The above screenshot reveals the trend of the event Pakistan Super League(PSL) before and after that event. The trend is high only in the month of February and March because this cricket league is played only these days. when Trend increases mean an increase in the traffic/users of websites on that event as a result of income/revenue increase. In event blogging, income/revenue can be 10x increase than writing blogs on other topics which are not related to events/festivals/special days.
How to Start Event Blogging?
Choose an Event/Festival/Special Day
The first step to starting event blogging is to select an event, festival, or special day. A lot of events occur in a year, a blogger can pick any event to start event blogging. As a beginner, an event blogger must find an event that has low competition because working on a low competition event he/she can get more traffic/users, as a result, they can easily generate more revenue as compared to working on a famous event that usually has high competition.
An event blogger can take an idea to select an event/festival/special day to start event blogging from the following categories
- Cricket leagues(PSL, IPL, Big Bash, etc.)

Mostly the events which are not famous in the world have low competition as compared to the famous events. As a beginner, the event blogger must find the events which are not famous and he can easily rank in less effort as compared to writing blogs on famous events.
There are some events which are not famous.
- Burning man
- La Tomatina
- Mardi Gras etc.
A domain is the base of your website therefore it is necessary to construct a website. After selecting an event then you have to select a domain. Before registering a domain think of a domain name that is most suitable and related to your targeted event. A domain name gives you access to your online identity and the content you publish. A domain name is unique and is selected by the user/blogger.
Some domain names contain .com, .org, or .net which show that this is the top-level domain. Country code top-level domains shows the internet top-level domain for a country like .pk for Pakistan, .ae for the United Arab Emirates,.af for Afghanistan, and so on. You can generate a name for your domain by using various tools like a domain name generator and then register the domain that you have selected.
The most important step after selecting an event is keyword research. Find all possible related keywords of your event. Your first approach should be to find all those related keywords which have low competition and high volume.
There are several ways to find keywords.

- You can use tools for keyword research. There are several tools for keyword research like Ahrefs, Keyword Helper, MOZ, etc.
Write Quality Content
Mostly the event blogger does not write quality content for their blog because they plan for a short time. Before writing blogs you have to be planned for a long time.

The quality content increases your chance to rank. If your content is not quality content then it will make it difficult to rank. If you rank then you will not sustain your ranking. Therefore write quality content so that you get ranking and your domain gets domain authority. The most important benefit of quality content is that next time you will have to make less effort because your website already has some domain authority due to quality content and you will easily rank.
