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. (Side note: A personal blog tends to be more like a diary, or a collection of a persons thoughts and personal meanderings).
A lifestyle blogger writes about things like fashion and beauty, food and nutrition, fitness & health, movies, tech and home decor and DIY. But it can pretty much cover anything that makes up a person’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!”. Combining two more more topics into your lifestyle blog can help you gain a more targeted following, and help to drive more traffic to your blog.

Tips for starting a Lifestyle Blog
- Pick a specific niche (or two that go well together)
- Write for your readers/ solve a problem they are having
- Use seasonality to your advantage to create a packed content calendar
1. Pick a specific 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!
2. 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!
3. 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.
Trending lifestyle topics will follow a cycle, watch this closely!

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 (Update: Mix is apparently closing down! and they have started a new project on their app…) or Bloglovin and search your niche or topic.
Or simply pop your keywords (head/short or long tail) into BuzzSumo, Ubersuggest , SEMRush 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.
How to write SEO friendly meta titles and descriptions for your blog posts
Ahh this ones a beauty! You know that feeling – you’ve written you post and you want to get your post out to the world! But, you still have to add meta data! And you are all out of puff for that description.
This is by far one of those blogging tasks that I hate! But I want to share a new tool I’ve added to my arsenal with you. It’s called Jasper and it can help you write your meta data, super fast and the best news is that it can help you rank! SO GOOD!
