100 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas

I love creating new content for my blog. Over the years Life of Shal has become a reflection of my personal life and all the experiences that make up who I am. More than that, it’s become a way for me to share all of that with the World, making so many more friends online than I’ve ever imagined!

Often, I find myself having great inspirational days where streams of ideas are constantly flowing. Those are great days for content creation. I make myself a cup of coffee and just sit and brainstorm new posts, marketing ideas and the overall vision for my blog.

But, like every blogger, there are those days where I have no inspiration at all. As hard as I try, things just don’t go as planned. It’s at those times that I find it harder to stick to my blogging routine. If there are any other bloggers out there who have these on /off days, then please leave me a comment below! I’d love to know that I’m not alone in this content-creating world, where we have good and bad days!

So as a way to streamline ideas for post creation, I’ve decided to share 100 lifestyle blog post ideas. These ideas are for any blogger to use, especially when you’re having one of those uninspired days, experiencing writers block or even if you’re just looking for some new content ideas.

Here goes!

What is a lifestyle blog?

Let’s start by defining a blog. I like to define a blog as an author’s personal online diary, almost like a snapshot of things that make up their life… but online. Similarly, a lifestyle blog is better defined as a digital representation of the author’s everyday life. Most often, lifestyle bloggers create content inspired by their own interests and daily activities. What this means, is that every lifestyle blog is different depending on the person behind the blog! No two blogs will ever be the same. It also means there’s a whole other community of friends out there who share a similar set of interests and passions as you do! (I love that!)

It also means that lifestyle blogging categories will vary and you’ll find a blog for almost everything under the sun. From Health and Wellness to Personal Growth to Travel, Home and Gardening!

If you’re thinking of starting a lifestyle blog and don’t know where to start, then how about using some of the ideas below? Pick a topic and just start writing. It’s the best way to start.

Below I’ve created a list of 100 lifestyle blog post ideas. I’ve broken down these ideas into different categories to make it easier depending on your niche. These ideas are also the type of posts I love to read, so if you’re writing a blog post about any of the topics below, leave me a comment and a link and I’ll definitely check it out.

I hope these will inspire you to start creating!

I'm Shalinee - a Geminian scientist who loves to travel, write, draw and eat chocolate. I've visited over twenty countries, published a Environmental Science encyclopaedia and somewhere along the way started a science communication company to help students and corporates translate that hard-to-read data generated in a lab. Other than that, I'm just searching for the magic still hidden in the world.
