CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THE TERM “LIFESTYLE” SITE/BLOG TO ME? WHAT DOES THE TERM MEAN TO YOU?

Lifestyle can mean so many different things to different people out there, and it has been interpreted in many ways through the years before, and when “lifestyle bloggers” became a huge phenomenon online. I for one have always struggled a bit to understand what that term REALLY means, and I have as a result found it a bit floating, and hard to interpret, and nail down for myself/site. One online guru once told me it means to write about your life..and as I have taken that advice to heart I have tried to write about an outdoor/active lifestyle..

However lately I have found myself thinking that the term in itself is much broader, but i do not know just how broad?

Can you help me with that?

What does it mean to have a GOOD lifestyle site these days?, and what are the topics you write about?

Is it ten ways to get a better life?

Five juices to keep you healthier?

Or is it ten backcountry skiing trips you should take this winter?

These are my all examples, and you might have something totally different?

So tell me..what does it mean to have a lifestyle site these days?

    For me it is, without a doubt, a blog focusing on your lifestyle. Not life. But lifestyle. And that will me a form for niche on it’s own. Like yours, about the outdoors. If mine were a lifestyle-blog, it would be about girl power and the journey to becoming your own boss. Others would maybe be a vegan lifestyle, a zero waste lifestyle, a lifestyle with dogs and so on. Great question, and I think that what differs you from a total niche blog is that you write about this part of your lifestyle, and not… let’s say… an “all girls rockclimbing”-blog! 😀
