In today’s world, everybody is obsessed with technology and top marketing and lifestyle-related blogs! But we people tend to overthink them. So, let’s break all the tension with the newly emerging and, of course, another important niche of the blog: the lifestyle blog.
But we need to ask ourselves a question that if we make a blog, it won’t be successful (this is the way we think)but how these blogs came to the tier’s top spot?
Well, the answer to this is quite simple. It is because those people who are the respective owners of the blog are passionate about the niche which they chose and have vast experience and knowledge.
Many people start a blog in a niche that they are not experienced in, and when they face failure, they blame their luck. You will obviously on failure’s side whenever you chose something without experience because the experience is the key to success.
So, if you are in the fitness, food, or parenting niche—and other things like this—you are going to get a boon now! This article is going to be a comprehensive list of the best lifestyle blogs.
But first, why lifestyle?
As you asked, it seems that you are quite intelligent. And I’m extremely proud to have intelligent folks like you reading this article.
So, you must already be following tech-blogs nowadays(everyone does even I)and YouTube channels. With the emergence of technology, people have forgotten about life and how to lead a good one. A healthy lifestyle is a key factor for your moral, emotional, physical, and mental growth. It is very much important to follow some blogs then.
“Live with no
~ Oscar Wilde
Another factor to consider will be that the reading of tech-blogs and other things have made life boring now. So, why not we dive into our lives and others, too see how the worlds are moving together! Why not see the indigenous life of people form their own country!
And before that, what does the term “lifestyle blog” means?
What are Lifestyle blogs and top blogs you need to follow?
While talking about lifestyle blogs, many people think of it as a top blog associated with fashion.
It is not so.
It’s actually related to all things that are related to a modern-day life such as food, shopping, haircare, skincare, DIY, Decor, fitness, fashion, and many more things which help our life to be creative.
They can be personal blogs, too, i.e., they share personal experiences. But it is not necessary as it can out of the box too(and it’s necessary for a new hit!)
Females most often run these blogs (as there are more female lifestyle blogs out there)
So, finally, I present you the list of those 22 top lifestyle blogs in 2020:
