How To Write a Lifestyle Blog (and how to start a blog!)

how to write a lifestyle blog

Lifestyle Blog

Being a lifestyle blogger means that you’re in the broadest niche of blogging. Having a lifestyle blog can be tricky so what does it mean exactly? It means just that — the style of your life! What do you do? What do you like? How do you do things? What do you recommend? In most lifestyle blogs those are the questions that are answered.

So, is a lifestyle blog lucrative? It can be. Or — it can’t. If I’m being honest I make pennies off of my blog — but pennies I make! I have worked quite hard on my website over the past months to try to improve my SEO tactics. Being a lifestyle blog makes this harder simply because it broadens the amount of research I need to conduct to achieve anything successful in terms of SEO.

Writing

Writing is hard. It may come very easy to you and at times it may seem worse than pulling your own teeth. You need to find the sweet spot. How do you balance what your SEO tactics guide you to write about and how do you write about things that you enjoy and care about? Finding this allows you to write better. It allows you to find your voice for your blog and establish a persona. Your blog’s brand isn’t just the color scheme and logo. It is the person you are portraying through your writing by implementing your voice.

A lifestyle blog also allows you to write about multiple topics. Instead of only talking about crafts or making vegan food — you’re open to your entire life! You can write about your weekend getaway and how to plan one (oh, free blog idea). You can write about your family, meal prepping, traveling, advice, mental health — just anything. If it’s your life and you have the gumption to put it into words and it helps others — write it.

Really, your blog is your little space on the internet to share your expertise and anything that you have to add to the world. Create a brand, find your voice, and write!

  1. This website was… how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something which helped me.

    Thank you!

  2. Long time reader, first time commenter — so, thought I’d drop a
    comment.. — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I
    steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the
    site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by
    searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!

      Hi Justin!

      Thanks for the comment. I did take a look at your site and it’s very nice! It was a bit slow for me. The theme I use is called “Fashion Diva.” I find simple is best as it is always easiest to read.

      Thanks!

  5. Hey! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room
    mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for
    sharing!

  6. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you so much,
    However I am encountering troubles with your RSS. I don’t understand why I am unable to subscribe to
    it. Is there anybody else having similar RSS issues?
    Anyone who knows the answer can you kindly respond?
    Thanks!!

  7. Valuable information. Lucky me I found your website by accident, and I am shocked why this accident did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  8. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

    Appreciate this post. Let me try it out.
