90 Lifestyle Blog Post Ideas to Grow Blog Traffic

If you have been reading blogs or thinking about starting your own blog for any period of time, I’m sure that you have heard the term “lifestyle blog,” or “lifestyle blogger.”

I know I did when I first started a mom blog!

A lifestyle blog is a type of blog that has many different blog niches, from fashion to food, babies to blogging.

So that means a lifestyle blog or blogger can cover many different blog post ideas.

These types of blogs are often a curation of the blogger’s own interests and passions. This differs from a niche blog as there are fewer “rules.”

While niche blogs focus on one specific topic, such as a specific type of dog breed or everything related to homeschooling, lifestyle blogs tend to focus on a wider variety of blog post ideas.

As a lifestyle blogger it can be super easy to grow your blog and your traffic.

Simply write about what is trending and blog post ideas that you know people are interested in.

Coming up with blog post ideas might seem difficult at first, but like a hose, once you turn it on, the ideas will start to flow freely!

While you should certainly take things like SEO into consideration when you are picking blog post ideas, once you realize how easy it is to find topics, you are sure to easily keep those ideas coming!

For a crazy list of blogging topic ideas to get you started, check out my 237 blogging ideas for starting a blog.

Even if you already have a blog, you are sure to find a least a few ideas to get those creative wheels turning!

Here are 90 of lifestyle blog ideas to grow your blog traffic broken down by topic.

Generating Ideas

Even after checking out my 237 ideas above and the 97 I have listed here, if you are still struggling to come up with ideas, here is a quick tip: Keep your phone handy and voice record during the day things that happen that you could potentially make a blog post from.

Here are some questions to ask yourself to help generate blog post  ideas:

  • What do I already pin?
  • What do I research online?
  • What do people ask me for advice about?
  • What could I read/learn about all day?
  • What kinds of problems do I run into?
  • What kind of solutions do I search for?
  • What kinds of things do my friends share with me on social media?

The List of Lifestyle Topic Ideas

I’m going to cover a few different, popular ideas in groups of 15 to give you 90 lifestyle blog post ideas.

This can be for different types of lifestyle blogs like mom blogs, beauty blogs or health and wellness blogs.


Considering I already have a parent/mom blog over on Smart Mom Ideas, I could easily come up with a thousand different lifestyle blog post ideas.

There are SO many different topics for parenting and mom blogs posts that I have on a daily basis.

But, if you are a new parent blogger, you might be struggling with finding blog post ideas to share. One easy way is to just look at your everyday life and things that happen and you should easily be able to come up with some ideas.

Ask yourself these questions:

What kind of struggles do you face on a regular basis with your children?

What have you done to improve areas of parenting?

What kind of advice do you look for online or from other parents?

Here is a quick example of how to use this strategy:

Scenario: Your toddler is constantly going into the fridge and trying to grab out food (leaving a huge mess and half eaten food all over).

Post idea: The best toddler proof fridge locks

Do you see how you can easily come up with so many ideas doing this?

Look at your day and the challenges you face and come up with blog posts ideas because most likely, if you are struggling, your audience is too!

For me, it’s time management and kid activities. That’s why I have posts on those lifestyle blog post ideas! 🙂

Here is a quick list of topic ideas to get those creative juices flowing:

  1. Single parenting/co-parenting
  2. Fitness activities for kids
  3. Non-screen time activities to keep kids busy
  4. Meals for picky eaters

Home Decor

Home decor is a super fun topic if you really love decorating and making your home look amazing.

Home decor blogs do especially great during the fourth quarter (Sept-Dec) as people are looking for fun new ways to decorate for the holidays. Home decor blogs can also include blog post ideas around organization and making your household run more smoothly.

Here are a few blog topic ideas for a home decor blog:

  1. DIY home decor crafts for [every holiday]
  2. Affordable farmhouse decor
  3. How to upcycle palettes for home decor
  4. Ideas for decorating a home office
  5. Different types of painting methods
  6. How to decorate a dorm room for cheap
  7. The best kind of plants for cleaner air in your home
  8. Tiny house design/inspiration
  9. Homesteading blog post ideas
  10. The best type of [furniture] for [scenario]
  11. Bathroom renovation ideas
  12. How to remodel your kitchen on a budget
  13. Dollar store kitchen organization hacks
  14. How to stencil a wall
  15. How to afford your dream home decor on a budget

For Home Decor, while you can look to Pinterest to get ideas, most home decor pins are product pins or image pins – home decor items.

To find blog post ideas in home decor, I suggest using something like Ubersuggest for some SEO keywords.

I would choose the “content ideas” section of Ubersuggest and see what blog posts were written using that topic ideas. If you see huge brands ranking for that keyword, you have to do your research in finding longtail keywords – longer, more accurate keywords like: rustic farmhouse decor.

Doing this can give you more blog topic ideas to fill your lifestyle blog!

What’s great about the beauty niche is that it can be an affiliate niche!

What is that?

It’s a blog niche that lends well to making money using affiliate marketing! This is when you sign up to a product’s affiliate program, get a special affiliate link and use that to share latest beauty finds on your blog or on social media.

If a reader clicks on your link and purchases, you get a commission! How sweet is that?

The trick is to get lots of eyes to your bog and you do that with traffic. Check out my huge guide on getting mega traffic to your blog.

Health and Fitness

The health and fitness niche is considered one of the three most popular blogging niches around (next to wealth and relationships).

Health and fitness blogs are also great to niche down into other topics. This could be something like, keto, vegan, gluten-free, yoga, crossfit, HIIT, cycling, triathlons, juicing, mental health, the list goes on!

If you have a more general health and fitness blog, here are a bunch of ideas to get you started:

  1. Pain free pregnancy workouts
  2. Tasty juicing recipes for beginners
  3. Smoothie recipes for weight loss
  4. Yoga poses for beginners
