When people ask me how the hell I’m able to travel around the world and have the most amazing career as a travel blogger, I smile because they usually have no idea how difficult it is.
They assume that I come from a wealthy family or that I have a rich sugar daddy.
They think I’m alway lying on a beach somewhere sexy sipping cocktails, snapping pictures, posting on Instagram. They want to know how they can get “free trips.”
Most of my friends really believe blogging is so easy a child could do it, reminiscent of elementary school “What I Did Last Summer” assignments. No one wants to hear about the unglamorous side of working 20 hours on one short post, how creating a “simple” WordPress blog can make you want to pull your hair out, and that most successful travel bloggers put in years before they started seeing any rewards.
And no one wants to hear that there is no such thing as a “free trip”.
I try to explain the business of blogging when people ask. I tell people about the article and sites I found helpful when I was starting out.There are plenty of great sites that give detailed instructions on how to become a travel blogger and how to monetize a website. I can tell you which sites to read, who the best travel bloggers are, which conferences to go to, and how you can become an affiliate and get sponsors. I love giving advice and sharing resources. I know tip and tricks on getting dirt cheap (even one penny) flights and free accommodations. I’ve been studying this information and traveling around the world for the past 30 years.
But when asked to give my number one tip on how to become a full-time travel blogger, my answer never changes.
Join Travel Blog Success. Period.
I waited for a few years before finally joining TBS because I wanted to save every single penny I could in order to travel as often as possible. I just didn’t want to have to choose between going someplace sexy like St. Thomas or paying for an online course.
After all, couldn’t I just Google “How to Become a Travel Blogger” and find thousands of articles?
Well, yes and no.
A quick search will bring up plenty of sites packed with information and resources, and some of them will be helpful.
But nothing comes close to TBS.
