Blogs are an extremely common and widespread phenomenon that has grown exponentially over the last few years. With increasing numbers of people writing blogs about everything from personal thoughts to issue-specific topics and politics, it is difficult to capture an audience for blogs as there are simply too many available. For a blog to be read, it must be well written and different in some way. Travel blogs are no exception. They are everywhere at the moment, especially with so many people now taking time off to travel and explore.
Make it Exciting
For people to read your travel blog, it needs to capture the reader’s attention in some way. You need to write about things that are interesting, funny or different to the usual endeavors of travel bloggers. So rather than paragraphs of how hot the weather is, focus on the more unusual and obscure experiences you encounter. Make an effort to engage in things that are somehow off the beaten track, and be honest. If the reader can relate to your feelings, join in your excitement, nerves or disappointments, your blog will be a lot more popular.
Practice Good Writing
Writing a travel blog, or any kind of blog for that matter, requires a good writer if you want a wider readership. Practice your writing in terms of grammar, spelling and form. Develop a personal writing style that is engaging and distinctive. You must also edit your blog entries, as not everything you do or see will merit writing about. Only put in what is actually interesting, funny or unique and leave the rest out. Try telling stories from different perspectives and only give detail when it is relevant. No one wants to read how hot a desert is, this is obvious. Go for more unusual things that will make your blog stand out.
