What do the best travel blogs do?
Travel blogs are all over the internet, recommending where you should go next.
Who should you believe, and how do you weed out
from the bad?
The Recipe Of A Travel Blog
Information about the blogger How they can assist the viewer
Where they travel How they can be contacted
Visual evidence in photos or videos Any merchandise for sale
Journaling or written details Reviews & Marketing
If they have a specialty
Travel blog basics should include:
The blogger should toss in an informative About Me page. Viewers often want to know who is making all these recommendations, and why they should trust the offered opinions. Viewers enjoy reading about where they are from and how they fit travel into their lives.
Where the blogger has traveled to is what brings them viewers. Web searches are performed for specific areas, regions, or cities. Readers want to know how much experience this blogger has and all of the places they have been.
Visual evidence is a necessary part of a travel blog, as it shows us scenery, food, accommodations, and surroundings. Without visual evidence, viewers can't
what the blogger is talking about.
Photography, Slide Shows, Montages
Videos, Clips, Movie Trailers
What is written in a blog is a
of what the blogger saw, felt, heard, tasted, and smelled. Without the written word, they could substitute audio, but the viewer needs to get
from the blogger. Photos need descriptions, and viewers want information throughout.
Some bloggers commit to a specialty.
Specialty sites help searchers find just the right travel for them. A travel blog can be all about the food, or all about the transportation.
Blogs can also assist their readers with:
adventures to take
Contact & Subscribe
Blogs should include a way for viewers to contact them, and a push to subscribe viewers. These features encourage questions, and allow bloggers to keep in touch with newsletters.
Merchandise for Sale
Some bloggers have items for sale, like their published photo books, recipes, or guides. There are even t-shirts and hats, camping gear and blankets.
All travel blogs need social media links like Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, and so on.
Blogger PR & Marketing
Every successful travel blogger is marketing themselves and looking for support. Some have full resumes of what they have accomplished. Others have advertising, traffic tickers, or press releases.

Readers between the ages of 20 and 40 who are fully wired to the internet and check up on their favorite sites regularly. Younger travelers are more willing to be adventurous, athletic, and less worried.
How do travel bloggers retain their audience?
1. They need to grab a viewer's attention
2. They need to provide enjoyable or valuable rhetoric for viewers
3. They need to convince viewers to return to the site
The best travel blogs describe the kinds of things a traveler would want to know.
Where should I go?
Where should I stay?
What should I eat, and where should I eat it?
What fun things are there to do there?
What interesting things will I see?
So, pick a location, style, or mode of travel and dig though these travel blogs for the best ways to see this beautiful planet of ours.
