My Personal Experience

I started my blogging journey with lyrics blog. As mentioned above I chose the category and the songs which no where available on the internet.

I used to listen the song and write it in my regional language. From then I worked on building an app. Now I own 3 apps and all the content are in 3 different languages.

I will detail about the app journey in another post soon.

So far I have made 300$+ from lyrics app and I know it will be a lifetime passive earning for me. I have invested my time and money once and earning now.

Here is my blogger blog which I started in my regional language for your reference.

If you have any questions do comment and let me know. I would be happy to guide you.


In my opinion lyrics blog is a good idea to start with your blogging journey. Personally, I used to be lazy in writing and hence choose this niche as the content is unlimited.

Choose what best for your community or language. I don’t recommend you to start a hindi movie songs lyrics blog right now. Rather, do some research and find if you can write lyrics which is not available on internet.

Yes there are songs and no lyrics for it. This may be your perfect lyrics blog niche to start with. I started with my regional language and a community oriented blog and its successful now. I will be sharing more about it soon.

So what you are waiting for? Grab a cup of tea/coffee and think whether blog lyrics is a super niche idea for you or not?

Thanks for reading!
