Tips For Writing Amazing Travel Blog Posts
How to write a travel blog post is going to different for each person and site. Here are a few tips that can help you create travel content with WOW factor.
- Remember that as a travel blogger you are probably very experienced with all things travel. Your readers are most likely not! This means that something that may seem obvious to you is something they know nothing about.
- Help your readers. Answer questions they ask, think of all those small details that can make your readers experience while traveling better.Google Questions is a great way to see what people want to know.
- Write in your own voice. Your readers have come to your blog because they like what you have to say. Keep true to your voice and be YOU! The magic of travel blogs over generic sites is that we are quirky, fun, unique and personal.
- Think about how you will generate traffic to your post. Writing a post that will rank well with SEO is very different from writing a travel post for social media. Make sure your content, format and tone suits where you plan to market this post.
- Maximize your content. Each trip you make you need to be sure to write a good 5-10 posts ( even if it’s just a weekend away). Be sure to make notes and take lots of photographs. Research and plan your trip and have a rough idea of the posts you want to write before you leave ( you are guaranteed to have more ideas as you travel ).
- Just write! We all have days where the words just don’t flow. Be kind to yourself and give yourself a break ( we can’t be geniuses all the time, right?). Just type what comes to mind, don’t edit then save and walk away from the computer for a while. When you back to it, you may be inspired to add more or salvage a blog post from your ideas.

You can use these as prompts to get your writing juices to flow or take the idea as the title for your travel blog post ( just remember to use those SEO travel keywords too!).
