What is a lifestyle blog?

There’s a tonne of topics that lifestyle bloggers talk about. But what a lifestyle blog is not, is a personal blog. A lifestyle blogger writes about things like fashion and beauty, food and nutrition, fitness & health, movies, tech and home decor and DIY. But it pretty much covers anything that makes up people’s passions or hobbies. 

Sure, they write from their perspective, but it’s important to remember though that a lifestyle blogger writes for their readers, not themselves. They’re always actively trying to solve their reader problems and answer their readers potential questions. So, their blog is highly marketable and interesting to many.

Many lifestyle bloggers focus on 2 or more topics and often successfully intersect these to make a niche. Think “Moms who Budget” or “Travel & Photography”…. Or the super trifecta “Budget Travelling with Kids!”.

Tips for starting a Lifestyle Blog 

  • Pick a niche
  • Write for your readers/ solve a problem
  • Use seasonality to your advantage

Pick a niche

Think about what you love, what you’re great at, what you enjoy. What do you naturally gravitate towards? If you’re clever you can combine 2 or 3 niches into one lifestyle blog and never be short of ideas!

Write for your readers/ solve their problems or answer their questions 

Make sure you’re writing with purpose. Think about what your readers would want to know about that thing or process. How can you solve their problems? What would they be searching for? Instead of “My favourite Summer Recipes”… try… “My favourite super quick Summer recipes under $10”… solving the issue of time and money! 

Use seasonality to your advantage

Make a list! So many occasions and holidays and seasons to choose from. Think about natural cycles of things… When a certain type of fresh produce is in season and plentiful?… What holidays are special to you? What are occasions or traditions in your house? All of these can be bookmarked and used as the basis of a blog or even a series.

Where to find extra inspiration

If you’ve chosen your niche and are looking for a little bit of extra inspiration, head on over to Pinterest, Mix or Bloglovin and search your niche or topic. Or simply pop your keywords (head/short or long tail) into BuzzSumo, Ubersuggest or even Google! And see what other lifestyle bloggers in your niche are writing about. 

Don’t forget that you can batch up your content into themes or series’ as well! For example when you spend time researching and writing about holiday gift giving, make sure you wrap in your other ideas around Christmas like – recipes, playlists and home decor, so when you’re in the same mindset you can get more done. This way you can also make sure you include internal links to similar posts.
