Write high-quality content
If you want to write interesting articles about travel, you should take part in exciting trips, so you can write about your experiences, feelings or opinions. You will also be able to give your readers some advice about visiting specific countries. It is good to write during a trip because “fresh” experiences, pictures and videos are the most valuable content for visitors to travel blogs.
Remember to post every few days, so people will not forget about your blog and they will be waiting for the next posts. Set some deadlines and observe them. It is good to mix posts, so you can write about travels, cultures, local food, etc. You can also describe useful travel equipment or you can write about yourself. Thanks to the diversification of posts, your blog will not be boring.
Writing is important, but do not forget about pictures and videos that will show different beautiful places or other things. Many readers of travel blogs are especially interested in things that they can see (not only imagine based on a text).
Do not forget about promotion
Even blogs with the highest quality content need some promotion, so people will know that your site exists. Try using social media to promote the whole blog or specific posts. You can also promote yourself by giving valuable comments on other travel websites.
