Creating a lifestyle blog is pretty cool!
I can write about anything I care to write about!
I don’t think that I’m that good at it YET!
Like anything new it takes practice before we are competent and confident.
So….what is a lifestyle blog?
It’s is a video, an audio, an article, a combination of all these things posted in a website, often! Then, if it’s a good , it will add value to the reader.
The blog will either entertain, inspire or educate the reader, hopefully adding to the readers life in some form.
A lifestyle blog often has subjects such as fashion, food, travel, conversations with friends, comments from a community on a particular subject for that particular blog piece.
Really…… what is a lifestyle blog ?
It’s a vehicle!
It’s a tool!
It’s a mechanism!
I see that a lifestyle blog has a inside effect and a outside effect.
The inside effectiveness for the writer can often be cathartic. As we all know when we express ourselves in the form of writing, we hear a voice from within that is often difficult to hear in our busy daily living. Our busy lives often hides who we really are, blocking our self expression with logistics, to do’s, or inane chatter often to fill the space.
The effectiveness to the outside reader can be a vehicle for education it might inspire the reader to make a change or create a different thought for a short time or lead into a change of thought for a life time. I have done a few blogs on change….
A Lifestyle blog might be done for pure pleasure, for journalling or self branding, and it might be done for direct income.
From my short time and limited experience in blogging I find it an awesome way of making my life even more awesome!
Blogging is one of the few vehicles that gives me self accountability where I have a system that sets me up to study, to think, to do the blog and to share or teach, to add to peoples lives all at the same time.
I also see that the act of blogging strengthens personal confidence. We have the opportunity to stretch ourselves to be of more value to more people. I had my mother-in-law say some years ago, that she felt she was losing confidence. At that time I was much younger and totally unaware of how years and experience can effect our priorities, then affect how we think, what we do, what we think we can achieve, and how we think we can touch peoples lives.
We all know we are life learners if we like it or not! It’s up to us as to what we choose what we consciously learn and if we choose to consciously take action to gain our conscious outcome.
Yep…. I used the word conscious three times in that paragraph.. Yep I am saying that some of us are asleep, sometimes we don’t consciously make decisions, then end up with outcomes that we end up asking ourselves….. huh why did that happen to me???
To write and correct a lifestyle blog facilitates speed learning I think its one of the best way to learn about ourselves, learn about others, not to mention, learning certain topics that you are interested in.
My blogging act, every day , or so, is creating bigger things for many many people. It is keeping me clear , it is getting me to my reshaped life of more richness in living.
Its just a lifestyle blog built everyday.
I also have two other really simple blogs check this out! I didn’t have to learn how to use this one… just type and send. Yes I pay $25 per month to use it and its all done! And yes there are other strategies I use, thats my choice!
Like Rome, my blogs werent’ built in a day they were built daily! I heard Dave Wood say this other day in his fast track training for the blogging platform … love it!
A Lifestyle blog adds, blog by blog, to conscious decisions made by the writer which hopefully impacts the readers conscious thinking.
Lifestyle blogs can give us the opportunity to add value on everything that is important and if you don’t know what is important because you have been so busy earning a living and working hard… you could give it shot!
Have a great day!
I have shot the photos with my Nikon D700, a 50mm lens and 70 to a 120mm lens.
I am combining my love for photography with my goal and desire to be blogging and to be location free.
