How to Start a Lifestyle Blog in Singapore

Do you have a deep love for sharing content, writing, or taking pictures of all things around you? Do you want to share your lifestyle expertise and experience with others? If it's a “yes” to all of these, starting your own lifestyle blog is not a farfetched idea to have.

If your hobby is your passion, why not turn it into something inspiring and fun? If you have the knowledge and skill to influence others, carve yourself a creative and great site and archive it for your old-self to see and get satisfied with it. 

Before we start with the Tips, here's some stuff you need to think before starting one. 


Step 1: What is a Lifestyle blog and what will you be blogging about?

A Lifestyle blog is exactly that… blogging about a lifestyle, your lifestyle. Usually, this is a lifestyle the blogger is passionate and knowledgeable about. So they’re an authority in the lifestyle and have lots to write about it.

This means, as a lifestyle blogger you would be based on your personal interests to write about the things you buy and use. To make your Lifestyle blog a successful one, think about you, your life, your passions and hobbies, your family, your social life. Is there anything that makes your blog's sharing unique? 

For example, you could be someone who is very passionate about a zero-waste lifestyle and focus much on that, provide useful knowledge and tips for people who aspired to do the same. So much so, that not just you, your whole family is into it. This could be one potential topic or niche for your blog. You could be blogging about your stories and how you made the transition, tips for reducing waste, how your family gets involved, advice on composting, tips for using less plastic and so much more.

As you can see, when it’s something you’re passionate about, you’re unlikely to run out of writing ideas for the topic as well. So if you’ve been wondering, “should I start a lifestyle blog?“, now you know exactly what’s involved.


Step 2: Choose where you want to post it?

There are many platforms you can choose from. The most popular blogs are basically (which is the one I'm using), or WordPress. There are other options such as which is much of a website interface, less suitable if you are less technical kind of person. 


Step 3: Do you want to buy a Domain?

Free blog platforms don’t offer many customization options. You won’t be able to get your blog to look exactly how you like most of the time. 

Also, you won’t be able to customize your URL and it will look longer than you've ever thought about it. To make it easier and more professional for your readers to share, a shorter URL is always better. You can even choose to make it end without a .com, but .sg instead. 

Some people are fine with amateur-looking URLs like I'm all good with the long URL because I don't want to deal with web hosting & more technical stuff. 


Step 4: How do people find you?

I usually linked it up with a Social Media account, such as Facebook and Instagram. These days, there are more popular platform that you can interlink with, such as Twitter, Tiktok, Telegram & more.

If you're not a Social media person, you may also work on some good backlinks so people can find you through other people's websites. 


Step 5: Publish your first Blog post

And finally, you’re ready to put your first blog post out to the world.

Learn the interface and get really proficient in it. As time goes by, there will be more things you will like to work on and improve the blog.
