Instead of spending all of your free time reading other writer’s travel blogs, it’s well worth trying to turn your dream of becoming a travel blogger into a reality. Especially if you’ve caught the travel bug and would love to visit as many countries around the world as possible. If you’re not sure how to get started simply continue reading in order to discover a few handy travel writing tips which will help you run a successful travel blog.
Travel writing tips for travel bloggers:
Remember to show not tell:
You may remember one of your elementary school English teachers telling you that the best way to tell a story is to show your readers what is going on, instead of simply telling your readers what is going on. You can’t go wrong using descriptive sentences in order to allow your readers to experience exotic locales, the same way you did. Think about writing about how a particular destination effected your five senses. As an example if you visited a market in South East Asia, you may want to describe the colors of the items which were sale and the unique smells which filled the marketplace.
Take unique, eye catching photos to post on your travel blog:
Instead of taking countless selfies which will start to bore your readers it’s a great idea to take unique photos to post on your travel blog. As an example you may want to take photos of the traditional costumes which you come across during a local public parade or celebration. Or you may want to take a photo of a secret beach which you sailed to on a beach trip. Alternatively you may even want to take photos with the individuals who you meet on your journeys such as the new friends which you make. So while it’s fine to show a couple of selfies per trip, make sure to post just as many unique photos as you do selfies.
Reply to any comments which your blog posts attract:
If you respond to any comments which are left on your blog posts not only will your blog look active but your readers are far more likely to continue supporting your blog.
Talk about your favorite experiences from your trips:
Instead of feeling pressured to write about visiting popular attractions feel free to talk about your favorite moments of your trip. When you experienced the beauty of travel. As an example, you may want to write about discovering a small local bar where you had insightful conversations with a few locals or you may want to write about stand up paddle boarding and spotting a sea turtle.
Make sure that you’re honest with your readers. As an example if you are underwhelmed about a particular hotel, activity or attraction, there is no shame in giving an honest review about your experience.
If you dream about becoming a high paid professional travel blogger, it’s well worth using the travel writing tips which are outlined above in order to launch a successful travel blog.
