If you’re looking for inspiration to start a female lifestyle website or blog, you’ve come to the right place. No blog could hold every woman-run website and blog for reference, but the list below gives a terrific overview of any topic you’re looking to dive into.
For the Mom
Married moms, single moms, working moms, stay-at-home moms, LGBTQ+ moms, pregnant women, women who are trying to conceive, and the list goes on.
1. The Mom Edit
Founded by Shana, and backed by a team of female editorial staff, ranging in size, ethnicity, and style, The Mom Edit focuses on style and fashion for moms of all ages, shapes, and sizes. They give mothers and women who are not mothers, of all ages and backgrounds a place to find answers to their questions. Blogs on lifestyle, mom tips, and even fashion style and sale guides are what you can expect to find on their site which is based in Philadelphia but has contributors from all over the country.
2. Scary Mommy
Blogs featuring the journey of trying to conceive, pregnancy itself, baby tips, teen tips, and all the years in between can be found on Scary Mommy. They don’t just stop at the immediate focus of motherhood. They lean into relationships and family, lifestyle, and fashion. There is a little bit of everything for moms no matter what stage of life you are in. One of the things they harp on is the fact that no mom is ever simply “just a mom”, as there is so much more to her story than simply being a mom.
For the Traveler
Traveling, especially as a woman, can be liberating but also terrifying. Having a blog to reference and gain information and expertise from can be a great tool for your adventures.
3. The Blonde Abroad
Kiki travels all over the world writing and giving away packing pro tips and photography how-tos. She is a believer in solo travel and aims to give that gift of confidence to other women while giving them the resources to keep their safety and sanity intact while traveling.
4. Adventurous Kate
Kate is a solo traveler just like Kiki but focuses more on destinations and travel tips rather than throwing in photography resources. Her helpful tips come from a place of planning expertise and real experience in the places she writes about. She urges women to travel, and feel confident while doing it. But, also creates a safe and honest community for the fears and anxiety that come along with traveling alone.
For the 20 Something
Navigating life as a woman in her 20s can be a tremendous uphill battle. These can help steer you in the right direction.
5. Salty World
The Salty World is a team that is 100% independent, they create a safe space to fuel female power, but not in the “pretty in pink” way, more in the “being recognized by the United States Library of Congress as a digital artifact of historical importance” way. The Salty World fights for the digital visibility of women of all shapes and sizes, trans, and non-binary people in a way that showcases the unique stories of women across the world.
6. The Financial Diet
The Financial Diet focuses on bringing the topic of money to the table without it bringing down the mood. They use methods that do not pass judgment, nor make money a joke, but rather find a way to educate using things you may not have thought of before. Their blogs cover topics on budgeting, investing, saving, lifestyle, and career moves and goals.
For the Foodie
No matter what is going on in your life, food will always be there. These blogs show you exactly what to do with it.
7. The Hungry Girl
Lisa Lillian created a fun email newsletter to send out to her close friends and family. But it ended up taking off into a multimillion-follower blog all because of her passion for food. The Hungry Girl gives readers guilt-free recipes and ways to enjoy their favorite foods.
8. Vanilla Bean Blog
Sarah Kieffer bakes out of her Minneapolis home, and the Vanilla Bean Blog brings a labor of love from the kitchen to the screen. She is a home baker that finds baking to be more than just an act of service you do for someone, but rather a vehicle for creating physical connections and lasting memories. Her blogs showcase a little bit of everything from recipes, photographs, and life reflections, to her own poetry.
For Everything Else
