By now you know that a blog is a great way for a travel writer to break into travel writing. Travel writers all over the world blog on a daily basis about travel. Did you know that you could use your blog to find freelance writing jobs?
We kept a travel gallery when we were in Britain last Summer and we found it was the best way to record our experiences. Now we have a complete, day by day, record of our holiday with corresponding photos. It is a permanent record of our trip that we can refer to any time. Far better than dim memories of what we did and fading photos in an old album.
The world has shrunk since the Internet has become more accessible. You can keep your friends and family up-to-date with the travel stories, pictures, videos and posts as you travel around the world.
Commenting on other websites is a way to connect with other travel writers. As a travel writer, you can never have enough contacts. Leave as many comments as you can. You never know who you’ll meet online. You could meet a former travel editor who could give you tips and tricks about travel writing.
It is a real value addition and will add spice to your life. It will help capture your travel memories as they are fresh. It is an opportunity to share your thoughts and views on any travel topic of interest.
Once you have a blog established, then you begin writing. Yes you will have to write about the places you’ve been to as well as those that you haven’t been to yet, for your main goal is to introduce them to your readers. If you have the will and power and drive to write, then this job would be of course, very easy.
You can even just have a personal blog that is about nothing more than your life journey. You can talk about everyday events, your feelings, your love life, your kids, your sports, you can talk about absolutely anything.
These are the very basics you need to establish a profitable travel blog. If traveling and making money appeals to you consider starting a travel blog.
