Starting a lifestyle blog is easier than you think. Yes, initially you will have a steep learning curve if you are not from a technical background, but after you are done with setting up your blog, things will get easy, or will they?
Honestly speaking, setting up a blog, choosing a domain name and hosting is the easy part of the equation. The hard part is growing your blog and turning it into a prominent blog in the lifestyle niche.
Are you equipped with the knowledge that you need to take your blog to the next level?
Well, if you are starting out, it is okay not to know everything, but it is important that you have a fire in the belly for learning. If you are willing to learn, I am willing to share all the secrets that I have learned over the years to help you take your blog to the next level.
So, let’s get started.
Find Out Something You Love And Write About It
Find out something that you really like and something people are searching for online. For example, if you are good with friendship, you should search for how many people are searching online for friendship advice and how you can help them. If you find the answer to this question, start writing about. If you are passionate about something, readers will feel that and you will be able to connect with them better.

Always Stick To a Schedule and Be Consistent
You should make a plan to how many times in a week or a month you are going to update your blog and you should stick to that routine. Newbie bloggers are very excited for a month or so, but since blogging takes some time to show results, they get unmotivated and quit! This is not the right approach, don’t think about success or failure, just blog consistently and let time decide your fate.
Do Not Plagiarize or Mislead People
First of all, write original content, check out & read the best lifestyle blogs to learn, do not copy paste content from other people’s blogs. Also, if you are using creative commons content of other people, don’t forget to thank them by linking to their website in your post.
Also, never mislead people by posting fake reviews of products. Yes, they may drive sales, but remember, we are here to build a blog that sustains the course of time. If you are going to piss off your audience for pennies, you will never be able to earn dollars.
Build A Beautiful Blog
User experience is very important. When a visitor comes to your blog, he should be able to find exactly what he came looking for, therefore, spend some time and money in developing the theme of your blog.
