Commenting can generate traffic to your blog. However, if you’re a travel writer and don’t know how to leave a comment, you can do more harm than good. Remember, the goal is to leave a comment that is relevant to the website you visit.
(2) There is no requirement to send multiple emails to your friends and family. Once you are writing a travel blog, write it once and your friends and family can subscribe to your blog and they are automatically acknowledged when you make an entry.
Somewhere along the line, we lost the point of travel. People visit pagodas, temples, churches, museums, and art galleries not out of personal interest, but out of some misplaced obligation. If you aren’t interested in art, skip the Museum of Modern Art. If you don’t like sports, forget the Superdome. Can’t stand witnessing first hand poverty? Don’t go to India.
Now that you’ve freed up your time and location, you’ll need to monitor your systems and stay in touch with loved ones. Here are several crucial tools to maintain your systems abroad.
Focus on unusual details – Certain tidbits or local traditions can be an interesting starting point for building up your story on the destination at hand. Always look for some small intere4sting fact or detailing that other people have missed. Something that makes the place truly unique and attracts readers to visit it. Never miss out on the details. God lies in the details, remember! It could be something weird, funny or out rightly disgusting….but anything eye-grabbing will do.
Photo Blogging: With the explosion of Instagram, and similar sites such as PicPlz and PicYou, many people have since become self proclaimed photographers. Why wouldn’t they create a photo blog to share their work. Some bloggers’ photo blogs have even helped them to build a portfolio and do freelance work.
There are blogs specifically focused around a certain theme such as politics or travel. Some businesses may keep travel blogs as they travel around the world. This may happen if they are promoting guidebooks on famous places perhaps. This is where your blog will likely fit in because the best blogs focus on a specific niche and build off of that. Your blog cannot be everything to everyone.
Perhaps I should explain that your most recent entry appears on top of your blog, with previous days entries under it. In other words, the last entry is first. When we came home we simply reversed the order so that we are now able to read about our trip starting at day one and going on from there. This is a great way to keep lasting memories of a magic holiday trip.
