What is a Travel Blog?

A blog is a website that is regularly updated in the form of posts. These posts may contain articles, informational tidbits, reviews, pictures, audio podcasts, and other forms of online-uploadable content.

A blog is typically written from the viewpoint of one person, a couple, or a small group of people.
A travel blog is simply a blog where the entire focus is on the world of travel.

How to Start your Travel Blogging Career?

  • Step one is easy enough: Pick a name and set up a blog!

    Go ahead and create a website with an interesting domain name. Remember to keep the domain name:

1. Short and memorable- Short names are easy to remember. Thus, easy to share
2. Original- Avoid overused, trademark “marketable” names, and pick a name that explains your passion.

Think good and hard about choosing your travel blog’s domain name, because changing it, later on, isn’t easy (or fun). Be careful not to pigeonhole yourself.

  • Step two: Get a hosting service for your blog

Most websites need to “rent” space on the internet. A place to store all your blog’s data, files, and photos so that people around the world can easily access it when they type in your domain name. That’s called blog hosting


Select a blog hosting service. It is possible to store and publish your work using a blogging platform. WordPress.com, WordPress.org, Joomla, and Tumblr are all well-known blogging platforms.

Ensure that your blogging platform has a statistics feature so that you can track the growth and reach of your blog. 

Create pages on your blog to introduce yourself and your material to readers. The pages listed below are crucial for a travel blog:

Destinations/Regions

  • Step three: Focus on the website design.

Create a website with a straightforward structure. We would advise against making a significant first investment in the website's design. As soon as your blog is live, start regularly posting new content. You might notice some progress after a few months of consistent posting

  • Step four: Content niche and quality

Now, think of a worthwhile topic to write about. Focus on a niche (i.e., the area of travel where you are an authority or have a keen interest) if you want to stand out from the crowd. 

Adventure travel, food and beverage travel, and family travel are popular blog niches. There is no such thing as a small niche

Keep in mind that simply uploading your experiences won't ensure a good income. Spend money on producing quality content since ultimately, that is what will bring visitors to your website.


  • Step 5: Now that you have set up a travel blog, link it with social media!
    Be active on social media sites and publish information about your blog, there as well. This will help your blog to grow.

    Through social media platforms, your blog can reach people who have an interest in the niche of your blog.  

Travel blogs get readers for their specialty, which for example could be, cultural and historical places for solo female travelers.
There are many online users that share similar interests and passions and would like to learn more about that subject!

On the internet, you'll never be alone!

Setting up a travel blog is easy, but remember that building an audience for your travel blog takes a lot of patience and consistency.

Allow your travel blog and its audience to grow for a year before expecting a steady stream of income.

The key to making it in the world of blogging is consistency. You have to be consistent with your content and effort, for this dream job to be successful!
