In defense of the lifestyle blogger – and why finding success as a lifestyle blogger
doesn’t have to be impossible.
I get it. Your chances of becoming a successful blogger are most likely higher if you’ve got a specific niche. Maybe you’re gluten-free recipe master, possibly you’re a home project DIY queen/king, or perhaps you’re a finance blogger who focuses on helping and informing college-aged students. These are specific topics, and you’re able to create an incredible amount of content specifically for those niche topics. You can focus all your efforts on crafting high quality content that fits within those molds.
But, maybe you’re a lifestyle blogger. If so, this is for you. Yes, YOU can be successful as a lifestyle blogger. I consistently hear the phrase “if you want to be a successful blogger, don’t be a lifestyle blogger.” I am SO not a fan of that.
You get to define your own success. If success to you is being able to share 2 posts per week, then GO YOU! Perhaps success to you is nailing down 2 brand partnerships for 2017. If so, go for it! Success means different things to different people – everyone has their own individual goals, and that’s what makes us all unique.
Again, being successful means all kinds of things. But, I wanted to share a few of the tips and tricks that I’ve found to be super helpful in finding success as a lifestyle blogger myself. I hope these tips will help you, too!
Are you a lifestyle blogger? What has helped you on your path to success (as defined by you, of course!)?
