Writer’s block is real for all bloggers. I personally think that coming up with lifestyle blog post ideas is a lot easier than most blogs. After all, these niche blogs are not very specific. So I thought it’d be fun to come up with 171 topics for a lifestyle blog are meant to last you all year long.
Do you really want to be a blogger but have been putting it off because you have no clue what it takes to create a blog from scratch? It’s not as hard as some people think it is.
How to Come Up With Lifestyle Blog Topics?
One of the cool things about these types of blogs is that you’re basically letting people into your life. This means that you can write about pretty much anything.
Unlike bloggers who have a blog in a tight niche, you get a little more leniency. Sometimes I wish I would’ve started in a broad niche like this.
Maybe you’ve wondered what type of blog you should start? We all do it at one point or another. In fact, many people don’t start their blog right away because they think that there is a perfect niche that they should start in.
The truth is that you can make money in pretty much any niche as long as you understand what your audience needs and give it to them.
So how do you come up with topics you can write about? Well, you can round up some of your favorite bloggers and see what they have written on their posts.
If you still don’t know what these types of blogs are. I’ve answered the question “what is a lifestyle blog” and even show you some great blogs in this niche that you can follow.

How to Use These Lifestyle Blog Ideas
Knowing what to write about and actually sitting down and writing content are two different things. I’m sorry I didn’t make the lifestyle blog post ideas list easier to navigate, my intention was to compile a huge list of lifestyle blog topics to help you get busy writing.
It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for fashion blog post ideas or blog post ideas for beauty bloggers. You can use this list to help you come up with some ideas that will fit your blog.
Just remember to use CoSchedule Headline Analyzer to come up with a great blog title to entice people to read your blog. Otherwise, your blog readership will never grow.

Coming Up With More Lifestyle Blog Ideas
One of the things that I’ve struggled with before in the past when writing on a blog that I wasn’t that passionate about was coming up with ideas for new blog posts.
For some reason, I just couldn’t do it no matter how hard I tried. The cool thing is that it doesn’t have to be that hard. There are so many new lifestyle blogs on the Internet all you have to do is find the right tools to help you uncover what people actually want to read.
For instance, Buzzsumo is a fantastic tool that will show you that will help you find some lifestyle post ideas. Here’s how to use it:
- This link gives you 5 free searches per day
- Go find some blogs in this niche that you follow and start putting in the URL
- You’re looking for the posts that have received at least 1,000 Pinterest shares in the last 6 months. (you can use a year if you want)
- Open up a Google Document and start jotting down the exact title and the URL of the popular post
- Once you’ve completed your five searches per day, it’s time to start writing
You now know which lifestyle post ideas are getting tons of shares on Pinterest. Your job is to sit down and write your own version of the popular post.
Remember, you’re not plagiarizing their content word for word. (that’s just wrong and will only get you into trouble.) Instead, you’re writing your own unique version of the blog post.
These lifestyle blog topics have already been proven to be popular and if you write a great post and create great images, you should be able to get some of that traffic.
Keep doing this every morning until you have a bunch of lifestyle blog ideas you can use for your own blog. Eventually, before you know it, you won’t have to do this anymore.
You’ll know what people want to read and by then you’ll have grown your own audience who is telling you what they want to read.
But honestly, it doesn’t hurt to do this every once in a while even when you know what to write about. The only thing you want to make sure is that when you do write a post for Pinterest, you want to make sure it’s optimized for both Pinterest and Google.
Final Take Away
Hopefully, you found this list helpful and can use at least one of them to write your next blog post. It doesn’t matter what type of blog you have.
You need to maintain a blogging schedule you can live with. This will help you develop fresh content on a regular basis so Google crawls your site and you start to get readers.
Oh, and don’t forget to promote your blog posts. I personally love writing content more than promotion, but without taking the time to promote you’ll never get readers for your blog.
Give your blog time to grow. One of the things that I have had to learn from this blog is patience. Blogging success doesn’t happen overnight, so don’t believe anyone who tells you that it does.
