Many people say it’s all about SEO rankings, RSS feeds and the amount of followers you have as a blogger that ensures your success. This might hold some truth, but the tips below are just as true when it comes to the art of being a travel blogger:
Travel bloggers need to constantly come up with interesting ideas. Travel blog readers are not interested in how many Twitter or Facebook followers you have. They want to read your story. So before you just write a random blog post, make sure that you really have something interesting to say.
Plan carefully. Don’t just blog about anything. Get to know your readers and what they are interested in. Develop a blogging schedule which includes something of everything that is relevant to your travel blog. Have a look at the types of blog posts written on blogonvaal for both Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club, as well as Maccauvlei on Vaal’s different types of guests and readers here: Blogonvaal. Treat your readers like friends – after all, they are the ones who support your blog.
Have you ever reached a point where you didn’t know what to blog about? I suppose we could call it bloggers-block? Take a piece of paper and scribble down the interesting spots in your local area. Which insects or animals roam your area that you don’t usually see elsewhere? Take a look at your sunsets in comparison to other places’ sunsets and blog about the differences. Dig up some history about the town or city’s street names or its previous inhabitants. From that you will most definitely get new inspiration for more stories. It is possible to be a traveller in your local area too.
