Writing your Niche Travel Blog

Hi Students,

I have been thinking about our Blogging class yesterday and wanted to give some advice to those of you that are unsure how to begin.

1) Check out other Travel blogs…here is a good one   http://www.nomadicmatt.com/travel-blog/

2) Just write. As I mentioned in class you are not writing the Ten Commandments or the Declaration of Independence! You can make changes. You can always edit later. You will not have much traffic on your blog to begin so just get writing. The more you write the better you will get.

3) Add some pictures

People like visuals…. If you don’t have anyTravel agent personal travel photos, its time to make some. Bring your camera on our field trip in two weeks. There will be LOTS of great photo opportunities. So in the mean time, look for pictures online, vintage travel pictures are cool too.

4) Write a commentary on an article, news clip, video or picture. Link the original source to your Blog, Put down your thoughts and opinions and you have a post.

5) Remember, you have been studying Tourism and Travel for over a year now. You have many important tips to share with the world.

6) Best practice is posts of around 250 words….this one is about 230…see nice and easy to read.

Best wishes to you all this weekend and happy blogging!

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!


  2. Thanks for all the advice to blog Niche, I’ve been looking at starting up my blog soon, Though this time, I would like to discover more of the little gems of places I found on the way! I’ve always been nervous on ‘how to write for the audience’ but you’ve helped with this, to give confidence to express myself.
