Enjoy The Many Benefits Of Travel Blogging

I’ve been blogging now for just over 12 years and in that time, I can’t believe the huge number of people starting their own blogs for one reason or another. It’s seems blogging in all forms, has become the latest craze around the 🌎 world and for very good reason.

Last count I obtained online, showed over ten million ✈ travel blogs alone out there. I thought I would offer a few insights on the incredible …

Of those millions, it’s estimated that only a few thousand are; long term, committed and very serious bloggers. Those are the very few that can actually earn income and/or other incentives from blogging.

Blogging For A Specific Purpose

things along the way

I’ve had many people contact me regarding starting a blog of their own for 💰 profit. They seem to think like most, that it’s a really great idea for making money and/or other opportunities.

Well that’s certainly true, but I thought I would offer my input after devoting a number of dedicated years at this, and on a part time basis. Just a few personal pointers on what to expect, if you choose to start a blog of your own for this purpose.

Every day, I follow and read some wonderful blogs that continue to inspire me. At the same time, I’m also discouraged about the number of; fraudulent, misleading and get rich quick schemers out there, that are ruining it for us genuine bloggers.

It’s getting pretty easy for me now, to spot blogs that are not genuine, and there only purpose is to make a fast 💵 buck.

Update

I discovered a while back by doing {Google Searches} of my articles, that I have been a victim of; copyright protection. Websites are actually copying my hard work and posting on bogus websites, that are plastered with advertising. 

This is just one of the things to be aware of when starting your own blog for profit. I have to check my articles on a regular basis and then notify {Google Copyright Protection}, to have them removed.

Such a pain and time consuming as well. 🤨

My Facebook Blog Page was also compromised a few seasons ago, losing about 3000 Followers. I’ve had to start all over again, which is a bummer. It’s just another one of those things that’s a reality in the wonderful world of blogging, and could happen to you along the way as well.

I do however, enjoy reading other peoples blogs, no matter what their niche may be. Ones that are; real, speak from personal experience and offer informative material that I’m actually searching for.

I’ve gathered so many helpful tips and advice over the years from these bloggers and vloggers.

Benefits Of Travel Blogging

Blogging for a genuine purpose is great and just one of the many – Benefits Of Travel Blogging.

Whether it’s for a; business, earn extra income, enjoy sponsorship opportunities, product or service endorsements, or just to have as a personal diary. There’s no better or cheaper way to reach the world, then having your own blog.

for those who have always wanted to, but not quite sure where and how to start. 

If you may be interested in travel blogging for profit, below are some tips I’ve learned from other successful bloggers over the years and practice myself.



Blogging For Profit Is A Commitment

Elderly Logger British Columbia

I’ve been running my blog here since 2012. The travel blog I started prior to Gr8 Travel Tips, was used solely as a learning experience for about a year.

Like starting any new business, I had to learn how to; write a quality article, discover and learn what (SEO) Search Engine Optimization is all about, open Social Media Accounts, interact with others on line and yes, a whole lot more!

I still learn new things every day and the most important lesson I’ve learned to date, is to be; honest, personal and not be fake or misleading!

Fierce Competition In Travel Blogging

Travel Tips
I probably picked the most difficult type of blog niche to make money at or get noticed on, and that’s a – 🧳 Travel Blog.

There are literally millions of travel blogs or websites out there, but travel is my passion and I wasn’t interested in earning large income. I wanted to slowly develop a; quality travel blog, that people will enjoy reading and following.

For myself, to eventually have businesses, products and services in the travel sector, eventually take notice. My main goal when I started, was the possibility of developing {Sponsorship/Partnership} opportunities with these businesses, especially when traveling.

It’s taken a number of years of very hard work and commitment, but the rewards have been tremendous. I recall my first sponsorship opportunity with a major 🏨 hotel chain, that hosted my wife and I for a 2 night luxurious stay at their property.

I was thrilled beyond belief! 🙂

It was like finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel, for those long hours devoted to developing a quality and respected travel blog.

Set Blogging Goals For Yourself

If you are interested in travel blogging, are willing to commit endless amount of hours and years for that matter, to your blog, then there is light at the end of the tunnel for your hard work and devotion. You can set goals for yourself and go as far as you like, if you are determined.

If you think you can earn 💰 big dollars overnight with little effort, don’t waste your valuable time!

Blogging Do’s

✔ Do follow leading bloggers in your niche and learn from them;

✔ Do learn about (SEO) search engine optimization;

🚥 Do not use those annoying pop up subscribe windows;

My Pet Peeve From Blogging

Travel Pet Peeves

When I see Brand New Blogs with literally thousands of followers on their {Social Media Accounts}, it really annoys me knowing that these are not real followers. I know immediately that these blogs are not genuine and I won’t go near them!

🕵 Stealing other peoples work is also difficult to take, but a reality with those fake bloggers around the world, that are only out for profit. As mentioned earlier, I’ve run into articles of mine numerous times on the internet, that have been just copied and pasted on these bogus sites.

Don’t do that!

Benefits of Travel Blogging – The Huge Rewards

There are great rewards in blogging if you are willing to put a lot of hard work and effort into it, just like any business. Those who think they can earn money in a short time or get sponsored easily, they’re dreaming!

Professional Marketing and Media Managers can spot the fakes quite easily, when looking for potential bloggers to promote their product or service.

Be real, write honestly, work hard and don’t worry about traffic counts. Things will happen and opportunities will eventually come your way for your hard work.

I’m living proof of that! 🙂

Successful Travel Blogging Requires Travel

Final Thoughts Banner

In closing here and one very important aspect of running a successful travel blog, is that it does require you to travel. 🙂

You need to actually experience what you are writing about and/or promoting. It takes a great deal of; planning, research, coordinating, scheduling and eventually traveling to your chosen destination.  

After all, isn’t that what a travel blog is all about? ❓ Above all, have fun with it and don’t be afraid to express your personal opinion and experience. That’s what people really want to read about, offering real personal views and opinions on the subject of interest of what you are writing about.

I know I do!
