Why I Became A Lifestyle Blogger

Hey Earthlings

If you ever wonder why I became a Lifestyle blogger, this post is about that.

I have a personality that tends to get bored if I am constantly doing the same thing. I have to be constantly motivated and challenge and doing different things work for me. That’s just how my brain works, so variety is what my blog is about.

So before I started my blog, I did research on which niche, that would be best suited for me, you would think that since I studied fashion marketing and merchandising, that I would start a fashion blog, but if you look into how much time and hard work it takes to post an outfit post, not saying that being a lifestyle or any other blogger in a different niche is not hard work and time-consuming. I might have studied fashion and I love it and I am passionate about it, but I couldn’t run a fashion blog for a long time and with the fact, I wanted to monetize my blog, It would sort of minimize my chances since every 20 something tends to always start with a fashion blog. I have a tendency to go against the grain, plus the Kenyan market is a bit too saturated with fashion bloggers.

So I did what I wrote about in my last post in case you missed it here is the link  https://www.outofplacekenyan.com/2017/10/16/definition-lifestyle-blog-blogger/. I sat down to meditate, reflected and researched, I wrote down my favorite things that with my personality never changes and they are:

  1. Photography
  2. Travel
  3. Fashion
  4. Food
  5. Health and fitness
  6. Hair and Beauty

That plus I reflected on my life, on where I am in my Life, where I am going and the path and decide I can be semi-personal on the blog and maybe my past experiences can help someone in the same current situation I was in.

The one Vision that is guiding my blog is the Voices in my head are my guiding light, that is how I run my blog. The other thing is when I started my blog I was in my last year of my advanced diploma, plus a needed a creative outlet, and I needed a way to build my photography and marketing portfolio.

Being a lifestyle blogger and have a lifestyle blog fits into my personality,plus it has the freedom the evolve and change with my life and that is a great thing for me, because I won’t always be single, or looking for a job, Living in Kenyan and won’t always be in my 20’s.

I hope this post has inspired you to start a blog or helped you decide if being a lifestyle blogger is for you.
