If you have ever thought about starting a travel blog, then this post is for you!
A lot of people are turning to blogging as an online business these days. There is no better time than now to start your own travel blog and make money while traveling the world.
In this post, we will cover 10 rules that I have learned from my experience with creating a successful travel blog.
Rule 01: Be yourself!
Rule 02: Make sure you have a central theme.
The blog should be about one specific topic in this case, travel blogs. If your blog is all over the place or has multiple themes, readers will get confused and might not know what to expect from reading it. It’s better to be specific about your blog’s main topic.
Rule 03: Include social media links
And share buttons on the page so readers can easily follow you! This will help people stay up-to-date with what is going on in your world. Plus, it gives them another way to find out more about our products if they are interested in buying something from you like a clothing line or accessories for travel.
Rule 04: Share photos of yourself
Not just pictures of destinations around the world that have nothing to do with who you are as an individual blogger.
Your followers want to know how YOU live when traveling and where YOUR favorite spots are located (consider this rule a second time). It helps build trust between bloggers and their followers.
Rule 05: Be specific with your content
Don’t just post a bunch of photos without any information about where they are from or what you did when you were there. People might like to know more about the places they’re seeing in these images!
It will also help build trust if readers think that this is as much for them as it is for you, so provide some detail around the image.
Rule 06: Blog often and consistently.
This helps establish an online presence which can lead to new opportunities such as getting asked to write articles on other websites because they saw your blog posts being published (here’s another rule!).
You want to create enough content on your own site so that others see how competent you are and that you are a reliable source of information.
Rule 07: Share personal stories
Be transparent about your life and don’t just blog for the sake of blogging if it doesn’t come naturally to you!
People enjoy reading blogs when there is an emotional component to them and they feel like they can relate or learn something from what is being shared.
Rule 08: Offer giveaways related to your blog’s main topic
So that people feel like they are getting something in return for following you. You can do this by giving away a trip to the destination of their choice, or even just a fun t-shirt with travel quotes on them!
This will also get readers more involved and invested in reading posts (or at least give them some pretty awesome freebies).
Rule 09: Don’t forget about SEO!
It should go without saying but search for your blog’s main topic.
Rule 10: HAVE FUN!
