In the past month, I have been trying to figure out, What kind of blogging voice will Lifestyle Scientist have? What topics should be posted here? What kind of audience should it cater to? What is my long term plans and goals for LS?
Let’s Start From the Beginning
I decided to start blogging for one reason, “MONEY”.
I was about to graduate soon, I did not have plans of having a “9-5”, I wanted something that can give me time to do the more important things in life and more than anything else, I wanted to inspire, entertain, give advice and help people achieve their desired lifestyle.
So, I started searching around Google, saw some PTC adds, Pay per clicks and a bunch of online programs that I think was suspicious and not for me but when I saw blogging during my search, I said this is “For Me”.
So with no plan, no structure and no set goals.
I immediately created a new email just for my blog site, create my first WordPress account, listed down potential names for my blog(from armandpolanski to new age dude to lifestyle scientist) and started creating non-targetted post on my site, *POOF Lifestyle Scientist was born.
How One Comment Change it All?
A month ago, in one of my most recent blog post 5 Lessons I learned Ever Since Lifestyle Scientist Started, Benny of Get Busy Living left this comment

Hey Aramand. Congrats on getting started. You know what’s one positive about having a new blog? You can write about anything. Of course you should focus on your niche but you get to try out so many things. When you have the huge traffic coming in then you’ll have to make sure you’re putting up valuable content all the time.
Then you see what post gets the most comments, most view and you can refocus and shoot again.
Niche? Because of Benny I realized what was missing with Lifestyle Scientist.
It was direction.
I did not know what kind of post that should be on Lifestyle Scientist. I didn’t have an idea on what kind of audience I want? What Uniqueness Lifestyle Scientist should have?
Clarity is Powerful
Being in action is a good thing but action without a clear cut idea of what you want to do? and Where you want to go? Is called meaningless action. It’s just crap.
So, I began writing my plans for Lifestyle Scientist. I decided on what should be read in LS.
What should LS look like? What feel should Lifestyle Scientist give it’s audience? What kind of Blogging Voice should be heard? What content should be written?
A blog is your online house, without a written blue print, it will easily fall into pieces.
Growth is a Continuous Life Process
Personal Development, Personal Branding and Lifestyle Design. This is what Lifestyle Scientist will be about.
It will be a product of my endless development and growth.
It will serve as a guide, an entertainment and key to the ultimate lifestyle.
