Imagine yourself in the beaches of Bahamas, sitting with a laptop, watching the waves of the sea go up and down as you feel the vibe of the place. This is what a travel blogger experiences, that too, while he is working.
Travel blogging has grown as a potential career option for many because of the perks involved. Some of the perks include freedom to work from anywhere in the world, flexible work hours and amazing places to go. This job is a blessing for those who love to travel. Earning while traveling is quite fascinating an idea. A lot of people are doing it and earning a great deal of money.
However, it is not as easy as it may sound. You need to work. A lot. And most importantly, you need to have the skills for maintaining a blog and writing engaging content for your readers. You need to keep your readers hooked. Being knowledgeable about photography can be an added advantage.
Travel blogging involves two main activities – travelling and blogging. You need to good at both. Blogging is something you can learn. With enough experience, you should be able to create good content that can keep your readers engaged. Besides that, you also need to understand how you can promote your blog to reach out to the world. Your specific target audience will be travellers. You need to get yourself affiliated with one or more travel sites to help your blog reach the audience.
Building a good website is the first thing that needs to be done to start blogging. Once that is done, you can go to places and take pictures. Post a good article about the place with all the details. Give a detailed description about the routes used for travelling. Share your experiences with them. I say this because I remember going through an article of a travel blogger who went on to explain the tiniest details of travelling in Bangalore Metro. Here is a website that gives you insight on Bangalore metro timings.
In addition to this, you can also link your YouTube channel to your blog and give the audience a visual treat. This will help you to gain more audience for your website as well as your channel.
