Here’s the thing. I have been an MBA student at IIM Udaipur and I started my blog right when I was in the first year of my MBA. So, when I am telling you about these blogging examples for students, you must know that not only is blogging extremely close to my heart, but it is also something that I can guide you well about.
While you are searching for blogging ideas for students, let me first tell you that you are making a great career choice now that you are thinking about starting your blog during your MBA. I purposely said ‘career choice’ because the reality is that you need not think about blogging just as a hobby.
That’s because what you may be starting just as a side hustle, has full potential to open up doors to a career of freedom and wealth right when you are in your MBA.
So, let’s begin deep-diving into the many interesting blog topics for students especially for MBA students like you.
Before I take you through all the ideas that I have curated for you, I would like to begin with something that will truly blow your mind.
Here is the crucial mindset that you need to have before you start your blogging journey. Mind you, this mindset alone can help you make lakhs of rupees right now, during your MBA itself.
Blogging for students is a money-making career
While you are here to learn about how to start blogging as a student and make money, let’s be honest, how many of your friends and batchmates are even thinking about it?
When I was in my MBA, in 2017-19, there would have been 1 student out of a batch of 300 students who would have thought about even starting a blog, let alone earning from it.
However, that is changing now.
As more creators, and influencers are coming up across all social media platforms, students who earlier didn’t weigh in these creative careers as legitimate options are now, in fact, more drawn towards it than they are towards conventional jobs.
And blogging is just another form of content creation, that is through text. It was the primary form of content creation before long-form videos and short-form videos took over.
Need examples? In another article, I will share examples of MBA students and graduates from some of the top B-schools who have legit careers as full-time or part-time content creators. And they are making money.
If you want me to write this article soon, let me know in the comments. I will also link it here once its done.
However, let’s get back to the crucial mindset.
Here’s what I want you to learn and truly understand this chain of thought of how blogging as a student can help you make money.
📝 Blogging is sharing your thoughts on a topic
🧠 To share your thoughts, you need the knowledge
🔍 To gain knowledge on that, you will research it deeply
📚 As you research it, you learn those topics extremely well
🚀 Within 6 months, this blog-building leads to thought leadership
🎓 Thought leadership will position you as a specialist expert in that field
🌱 As you become an expert more traffic will start to come to your blog organically
🔗 Repurpose your content on LinkedIn, and your following grows more
👥 A community gets built comprising your followers and readers
💽 You create digital products and sell them to your community
📦 This starts to help you earn by packaging your knowledge
💼 Also, you start to get freelancing work in that niche
💸 Soon, this revenue becomes more than a salary
I am sure this would have blown your mind. Most of the students who I train in my course Career GTM learn exactly this journey.
These are MBA students and aspirants who finalize their area of expertise and put their knowledge and skills to use to start growing their personal brand and earning big.
Frankly, if you can internalize this line of thinking and if you can have this vision with your blog then there is no way you can’t build a career out of blogging as a student. And this career will easily be much more fulfilling and wealth-creating than a job.
Now, that you have uncovered this wonderful opportunity. Let’s see what are those blogging ideas and topics that I have picked for you.
