This paper deals with the blow-up phenomena for a nonlinear pseudo-parabolic equation with a memory term $u_{t}-\triangle{u}-\triangle{u}_{t}+\int_{0}^{t}g(t-\tau)\triangle{u}(\tau)d\tau=|{u}|^{p}{u}$ in a bounded domain, with the initial and Dirichlet boundary conditions. We first obtain the finite time blow-up results for the solutions with initial data at non-positive energy level as well as arbitrary positive energy level, and give some upper bounds for the blow-up time $T^{*}$ depending on the sign and size of initial energy $E(0)$. In addition, a lower bound for the life span $T^{*}$ is derived by means of a differential inequality technique if blow-up does occur.
