How to Create a Travel Blog
To create a travel blog is not difficult, but you need to follow specific steps. You also need to have a passion for traveling, since, without it, you will quickly lose interest in writing.
Another thing that you need to have is time, which means at least 1 or 2 hours per day that you can dedicate to this activity. Here’s how to make money travel blogging.
Choose your blogging platform
The first and most crucial step when creating such a blog is to select a platform. The most popular platforms out there are Blogspot (Blogger) and WordPress. Both of them offer a free version and a paid version. In the free version, you are tied to using their domain name on the link of your website (e.g., cameltravel.blogspot.com).
In the paid version, you no longer have this limitation (e.g., you can use cameltravel.com), which is better for SEO.
Choose a suitable theme
When creating your blog, you are bound to choose a topic. The idea basically represents the combination of colors and elements for your blog. It’s recommended to choose a simple idea that highlights text and images.
Many people make the mistake of selecting a topic that highlights pictures but makes writing very hard to read. You don’t want that since your visitors will never return in such a case.
Once you finish creating your blog (including theme, domain name, etc.), you have to start writing as soon as possible. There have been cases where people kept delaying writing their first article until they completely forgot about the blog.
You want to avoid this at all costs. If you feel you are lacking inspiration, then visit some other related blogs or sites on the internet. Alternatively, think of your last holiday or city break and start writing about it.
Adding new articles daily to your blogs is a great start, but it’s not enough to make you famous or help you earn money from it. It would be best if you attract visitors to your blog through other means as well.
Start by enrolling your blog into different article directories. Then, share your posts on social media. We advise you to not only create a travel blog but also dedicated social media pages and invite your friends to like or follow them.
To create a travel blog you will need passion and dedication, yet pays well in the long run. Follow the steps mentioned above, and your route to success will be guaranteed. Once your blog becomes popular enough, you should consider monetizing it through different means such as advertisements or affiliate marketing. We wish you the best of luck!
