I am constantly asked how to start a travel blog and why, and the reasons certainly never change. To be honest this is one of the best things that I have ever done in my entire life and I don’t see why it couldn’t be the same for you too. I decided that I should cover some of the reasons that you should start a travel blog, so read on and enjoy.
Anyone can do it
The thing that you need to know about how to start a travel blog is that anyone
In fact you don’t even need to be traveling yet and there are no hard and fast rules about when you are allowed to start one. You may be simply writing about your experiences with packing for an upcoming trip or anything else. There are no rules, so you can start writing today.
It is easy
When you think about it, you really don’t need to be a tech genius to run a website. With the tools that are available on the web today, it is extremely easy to host a website and run it effortlessly. User friendly blogging platforms like WordPress (which I highly recommend) are constantly being improved and are unbelievably easy to use. Don’t let the tech side of things get the better of you and if you do face something you can’t do, you can always look up a solution or get some help from a professional techie.
It is quite cheap
I meet a lot of people who seem to think that running a website and owning a domain name are things that are very expensive, but the truth is that it is quite the opposite. Running a website from most hosts costs a few dollars each month and a domain name is normally only a few dollars each year. In terms of cost, running a travel blog is extremely low and is probably some of the best money that you can spend for the amount of enjoyment it brings.
You get to connect with people
One of the most rewarding aspects of running a travel blog is that you get to connect with people all across the world. I think this is truly incredible and I am constantly humbled by the simplest words of thanks and that my experiences have inspired others. No amount of money could make me feel this good and it is something that everyone could potentially experience.
