Write Your Own Personal Travel Blog

Monday, January 8, 2018

If you’re a passionate traveler, then there is a high probability that you want to tell or share your traveling adventures with your friends and family. Many travelers do it directly by talking these stories to their loving ones. But do you think there is a huge audience who would like to hear your stories too? Many people out there just started with traveling or plan their first international trip. These people would be more than happy to hear your experiences and read a detailed insight on destination.

The best way for your traveling adventures or hobbies to get noticed by many people is by creating a personal blog. It’s a blog where the content is revolving around the owner of the blog and the activities the owner is passionate about. If you love to write and learn new skills that can land you a first online job, then you should definitely think about starting your own blog.

How to Write a Personal Travel Blog

Starting and writing a personal travel blog isn't that complicated as it was a few years ago.

As you’ve may already notice, a travel blog differs from another kind of blogs. Every blog has the main topic or niche and the content is revolving around it. A personal travel blog, as the name suggests, has you and your adventures as the main topic. It means you should write about the things you do on a daily basis. It may seem that writing a personal blog is the easiest thing as you don’t need to be knowledgeable about any specific topic. Is it the case? It’s absolutely not the case with personal blogs. Let’s get clear, everyone with the basic knowledge of writing can write a blog about their lives. But will the people read your blog and interact with the person behind it?

It hugely depends on the quality of content and topics you’re writing about. If you have a dull and regular lifestyle, you can have as much content as you want, but it will hardly make anyone interested. The key to having a successful personal blog is to create engaging and interesting content. The easiest way to do it is by simply living an extraordinary lifestyle filled with as many adventures as possible. You should have many hobbies that people can find interesting, and people need to see your passion when you’re blogging. That’s the way you attract a loyal readership. If you’re a traveler who’s always on the trip, then you probably have a lot to write about. You can create a personal travel blog where you can talk about different destinations, food, tradition, culture, and adventures. What do you think, will people ever get bored by it?

Why Should You Create a Personal Travel Blog Today

Running a traveling blog is an amazing way to share your experiences with broader audience and at the same time connect with like-minded people

In my humble opinion, everyone should have a personal blog as it’s promoting creative thinking. Starting a blog is easy and cheap so that everyone could start their own blog without much technical knowledge. Start writing about your lifestyle and create a frequent blog posting routine. Talk about your hobbies, thoughts, interests, passions and traveling adventures. You must give people value so that they can connect with the person behind the words. There is a high chance you will connect with like-minded people and forming these kinds of connections can’t hurt you.

You should always strive to connect with professionals and positive people who can teach you a thing or two. Also, you never know, maybe one day you will have a business partner or lifelong friend from your readers. If you’re a professional who is working with the clients online, then having a personal travel blog can have a different purpose. It helps you to promote yourself as a brand. Today, it’s widespread that professionals promote their services or lifestyles and make a brand from their name. That’s a perfect business strategy for self-employed professionals. While sharing your passions, stories, adventures, you’re not only showing that you lead an interesting life, but also that you have skills that can help someone.

Things You Need to Run a Successful Personal Blog

There are a few things and skills you’ll need to learn and do to make your personal travel blog successful. To start a blog, you’ll need a platform, domain, and hosting. It’s the only investment you will need at the beginning and it will be enough to start things. You will write exciting stories on your blog which means you need to practice and learn copywriting and SEO. That way, your content will look great while being optimized for search engines which means more traffic. Also, be sure to have social media profiles where you’ll be promoting your content to the broader audience. These are very valuable skills to have in these times, so you can make a considerable money only with writing your compelling personal stories.
