Filling up your editorial calendar with quality content is key to your success as a lifestyle blogger! But I also know that coming up with blog post ideas for lifestyle bloggers isn’t always easy! But because I filled out my editorial calendar a couple months ago, I now know exactly what I’m writing about each week until the end of June. When June rolls around, I’ll fill in the next few months, and so on, and so on.
Why do I do this? Because I used to hate sitting down at my lap top and wasting time thinking about what to write. Life is so busy as it is, anything that can save some time is such a life saver!
As a lifestyle blogger, there is SO much you can write about. That’s another reason why it’s so important to get your content organized. Having an editorial calendar filled with amazing, substantial content is essential if you want your blog to make it big! Random posts that don’t fit with each other make it really confusing for anyone who visits your site!

When it comes time for me to sit down and fill in my editorial calendar, I like to start with a brainstorming session. I write down all the ideas that come to mind under each of my blog categories and then choose the ones I like best and know my readers will love too! And since I’m always writing blog post ideas down as they come to me, I compile all the post titles together, and organize them to figure out which ones should go where in my calendar.
If you’re stuck on what to write about as a lifestyle blogger, I hope this list gives you some great ideas!
