It’s a great feeling to travel and to discover the world beyond your neighborhood. Wanderlust is an unquenchable thirst but it can come at a huge cost.
Blogging is a great way to make money for travelers. There are hundreds of travellers fueling their travel by the money they make from their blog. How will you stand out? By doing what you love, travelling, and blogging about it, do you think you can make enough money to support your travels?
There are aspects of building a blog about travelling that are very different from the general blogging landscape. Do you know you can get sponsored by adventure and marketing companies if your blog is ranked high? You can sell banner ads, on your blog, for travel companies because of the traffic that is there on your website.
Regarding the content there are some aspects different from a regular blog. Avoid the cliched sights and sounds associated with a particular country or culture. Use thumbnails and photos to capture your experience in more detail. It is also OK to document observations you don’t like. Just explain why you don’t. It is only reasonable that you don’t like the food!
What you need for your travel blog to be successful is you need relevant and highly critical feedback for all aspects of your travel blog. Additionally, you will need some personal guidance from a person who has been there and has done that, learn how to get visibility on travel heavyweights like Lonely planet.
