Want To Blog About Your Lifestyle? Here's How To Get Started

Lifestyle blogging is incredibly popular these days. If you want to write about the way you live, what you enjoy, and how you spend your time, it’s definitely a niche area of interest for you! 

However, writing a lifestyle blog can get a little tricky. You need to have something to say about what you get up to, and spend time planning content after experiences or even just conversations with friends that lead to a larger question you want to talk about. 

If that sounds like something you’d be interested in doing, check out our little guide below on how to get started with running a lifestyle blog of your own. 

Make Sure the Name Feels Like You

Before you get started with anything else, make sure the name of your blog represents who you are and what you want to write about. For some people this is just their name, which is absolutely fine! 

But for some, a domain name can be inspired by a food they love, a destination they’ve been to multiple times, or even a childhood nickname that only those closest to them know about. 

Writing under the right name is crucial; it’ll help you to stay motivated when it comes to building your brand. When your blog feels like you, it becomes much easier to find something else to say. 

Focus on Multiple Elements of Your Lifestyle

You might think you need to invest in a specific lifestyle niche and only write around that, but that couldn’t be less true. You can write about as many different lifestyle topics as interests you; lifestyle blogs always have a personal basis, so while your writing is for a professional purpose, you can still be yourself through it. 

That means, if you want to, you can write about whatever you like and delve deep into these different areas. The more areas you can write about, the more creative your writing becomes! And even better, diversifying like this will mean there’s a larger audience you can attract. 

Don’t Be Afraid to Approach ‘Taboo’ Topics

Taboo topics are all over the internet - even though a lot of them are simply day to day issues we have to deal with. Really, we’re not talking about anything NSFW here at all! 

When you want to write about lifestyle, feel free to target and tackle such topics. If you have experience visiting an alcohol rehab, write about it to connect with those who have similar experience. If you’ve had issues with your reproductive health and want to help others like you feel less alone, write a post and get the conversation going! 

And remember, there are all kinds of brands out there. If you want to make money through your blog and you’re worried about not being advertiser friendly, you can still be sponsored by a slew of businesses when writing about supposedly taboo topics. 

Be Honest

Honesty is crucial in the online sphere. You don’t have to give intimate, personal details out, but it’s best to be honest about the way you think and feel. 

Being honest gives your content a certain unattainable quality; you’re open, maybe a little vulnerable, but you know what you want to say and how you’re going to say it. Audiences respect that and find that very appealing in 2024!

Plan Content Ahead of Time

Now we come to one of the most tricky elements of running your own lifestyle blog. You’re going to need to plan content ahead of time to stay ahead of the game. If you like writing on a whim and find it fun to do so, by all means keep going! 

But make sure you’ve got a few pieces in store waiting to go out at all times as well. You don’t want to run out of content when you’re trying to make a name for yourself through your writing. 

When you’ve got some good content on the back burner, ready to go when you’re not feeling too inspired about what you’re up to right now or how you’re going to present it, blogging won’t ever get stressful. 

If you’re keen to start lifestyle blogging, keep these tips and tricks in mind. The more you write from the heart, the more your audience is going to resonate with what you have to say. So be honest, be open, make sure you have a content plan in place, and write under a name that looks and feels like you!
