The Blogger’s Lifestyle

Finding inspiration to make a positive impact in life’s journey

Welcome to the Blogger’s Lifestyle where we are talking, experiencing and growing in all that this lifestyle has to offer. Have you ever thought of  starting a blog as a hobby or to keep in touch with friends?  Maybe you have dared to dream that you could turn your blog into a full-time job, then this is the place for you.

Our aim is to encourage and motivate you to reach your potential in the context of a balanced lifestyle. Setting goals and finding the courage to make action plans to achieve them. To keep inspired, to dream and be excited about the future.

Home the Blogger's Lifestyle

Let this be the kick-start to make your lifestyle dreams become reality.

Lifestyle building is a combination of body, mind and spirit, in tune and optimized to reach our God-given potential.

Having purpose and making choices

The Blogger’s Lifestyle is not limited by age. The lifestyle is equally suitable for the young writer with a vision to meet a need or provide a service to their peers as it is the avenue of a fulfilling hobby or a full or part-time job that provides for the pre or post-retiree. Young or older we all need a purpose in life, a reason to get up in the morning. Each of us has an inherent desire to feel fulfilled, energetic, loved and appreciated.

To be a successful blogger takes more than the ability to write. Whatever your goal is for your lifestyle, be it blogging or some other dream that you have, these three practical issues will impact your life’s success, either positively or negatively.

For a Successful Blogger’s Lifestyle – Gain Knowledge

One – is the necessity to gain knowledge, understanding and education in your chosen field. You will find encouragement on this site to inspire you. For bloggers, there is a growing amount of resources available. Start by looking under the Blog Helps tab.

For a Successful Blogger’s Lifestyle – Take Control of Your Finances

Don't miss this one essential for successTwo – Whatever your ambitions are, if you do not have your personal finances in control they will forever hinder you. Debt is a strangler, it suffocates your dreams, your relationships and drags you down. Many have started blogs with intentional purpose and ambition, only to find that their personal financial state has bought them undone. Read more about blogging and finances Don’t Miss this One Essential for Success.

For a Successful Blogger’s Lifestyle – Look After Your Health

Three – Is to look after your health. It is paramount to your lifestyle to have the best health that you can. To preserve the degree of health you have, and where possible increase your well-being. Look into lifestyle factors that may need attention. There is a lot of new research putting light on the diet that we did not previously know.  For some making a few adjustments to a diet can make a tremendous impact on they way they feel and cope.

By nature, blogging is a sedentary occupation and we need to pay careful attention to avoid sitting disease. Sitting disease has far-reaching consequences that require our constant attention to avoid it. You will find valuable information here How Blogging Relates to Our Health.

By all means listen to advice, but don’t rely on others to know what is best for you.  That leaves the responsibility for your best lifestyle choices up to you.

Living in the present

An important aspect of living with purpose is to practice living in the present.

This very much applies to the blogger’s lifestyle. Success takes time, don’t get discouraged by comparing yourself or your blog to well established blogs.

So often we can find ourselves looking forward to an ideal set of circumstances, and then we will be happy. While it is good to have long-term goals, the discerning person will be living in the now making the most of this day, this minute. Having a positive view of the phase of life that you are in right now. Hardships are never really pleasant but we all face them, without them we would never grow and mature.

The same principals apply to developing your blog, if something does not work – there is your message to adjust and grow.

Make the choice to be happy now. Yes, things are not perfect now, and the hope is that they will get better. But if you wait until things are better, it is so easy to then want them even better, and so it goes on. Be thankful for how far you have come and make a choice to be happy in it as you move forward.

The blogger’s lifestyle is a constant check on how far you have come.  Be happy and thankful with your progress while moving forward toward you goals.

Allowing yourself to dream and set goals and to be excited about the future

With an attitude of thankfulness, it is healthy to dream, imagine and set goals and to be excited about the future. Nobody invented anything without first imagining it, so allow yourself to dream.

If you are dreaming about the Blogger’s Lifestyle, don’t be afraid, make a plan and put it into action. See the 5 Styles of Blogging to gain some inspiration of where you might like to aim for.

      Hi Susan, thanks for your recent comments on my blog. LOL at 43 your doing great, lots of positive territory ahead. I was just checking out your Homemade Ice Cream Sandwich. I love Gluten free, nearly all my recipes are gluten free. I would love you to come and put that recipe on the attached party.
      Thanks again,

  • Patty

    I like how you describe the bloggers lifestyle. It amazes me how many bloggers are out there and yet nobody I know that isn’t a blogger ever says anything to me about how my work on the blog is going? I find myself asking them how their job is going. I would like blogging to be my only work, but I know I have to work at it for a while. My husband says I’m addicted when I pick up my laptop, but there is a lot of work to do! Thanks for hosting the link party and for your encouraging article.

    • Kathleen

      Hi Patty, thank you very much for your comments, it is so cool to think my articles encourage and help others. Your thoughtful comments on blogging say exactly what many bloggers go through. In fact I would say that all of us have at some time or are presently experiencing a similar scenario to what you describe.
      All the best, as you develop your bloggers lifestyle,

    Hello Kathleen, your blog is quite informative its piece of gem for new bloggers like me. I write about food and art do have a look at your convenience. Following your blog as didn’t wanted to miss interesting and helpful updates.

  • Jennie

    I was reading Debbie Woodroof’s blog (CoachDebbieRuns) and your site was mentioned. I’m over 60 and just started a new blog and upon seeing your site above, it was a breath of fresh air to me. You talk my talk, not the current generations way of speaking, not to say their’s is bad, it’s just that they speak a different language sometimes. Also, they are still mommy’s, while I’m a grandmommy, which means I’m focused on a lot of different things at this time in my life.

    Anyway, I can’t wait to hear more from you. I’m still in the stage of what is my brand; what do I feel strongly enough about to write about consistently? I just know that I love to write. I’ve done it most of my career and want to continue doing it in my retirement, but in a positive, helpful and uplifting way, so I can help, encourage and/or make someone’s life just a little better or happier.

      Hi dear Jennie, Sorry I just found your lovely comment. This is my old website and it is retiring, I found out that numbers in your name was a sign of spam. So come and join me on my other site. You may enjoy our get together that starts each Friday, called The Blogger’s Pit Stop. People like it because of the variety of posts that people bring to share. We have a lot of what they call mid-life bloggers. I get included in that and I am well past the 60 🙂 they must think I am going to live to 120 +
      If you are interested I can introduce you to a grandmother’s blogging group.

      Keep up the writing, I recently did an interview with an author who was telling us about writing memoirs, that was interesting.
      Well Jennie, drop over anytime, here is the link to the author interview if you want to read it

      Kind regards, Kathleen
