The travel industry can end up becoming a lifestyle business for you if you manage to do things right. One way that you could potentially combine a passion for travel and new experiences with a flair for writing, is to create your own travel blog.
There are some really excellent sites already out there on the internet, who have a loyal following. People like Katie Aune and Allan Wilson (http://www.live-less-ordinary.com) have managed to carve out their own niche market and there is certainly plenty of space for you to find something travel-related that is unique and interesting to write about.
Blogging is not an easy road to riches but if you work at it and have a passion for travel and a particular area of expertise, there is a good chance that you might be able to combine the two and do some globe-trotting that even earns you some money.
This infographic takes a look at what ingredients and tools are needed if you are going to have a chance of creating a successful blog with a loyal following. There is some very useful information on how to construct your blog and create content that will be of interest to a hopefully growing audience, and good advice on the best ways to engage your readers.
Great words are definitely important and you need to always be aware that your post should be scannable, as only a small number of readers will actually read your blog word for word. The other vital element is some stunning visual images.
Great photos are understandably going to play a big part in the success of your blog. People don’t just want to read some inspiring or engaging travel stories, they want to see for themselves what you are talking about and not just fake photos – those of the actual travel blogger out backpacking themself.
Think about what you could travel the world writing about and if you do it right, you could soon have a wildly successful travel blog on your hands.
