Lifestyle media spans a wide range of topics. In this blog post we include online entities that focus on aspects of life such as beauty and fashion, dating, cooking, home decoration, DIY and architecture, religion and spirituality. Examples of such sites are listed in the table below.

For advertisers, it provides a vehicle to target highly engaged and well-defined audiences. As a result, the lifestyle media landscape is fairly fragmented and competitive.
