Blog Travel. Just the other day I was thinking about this and here is my take on it. Most bloggers out there are either daunted by the prospect of actually blogging or just don’t seem to get started. There are some good reasons for this and some not so good reasons for it. Either way, for the sake of this article we’ll focus on the not so good reasons.
The first reason why most bloggers do not get started is because they chose a silly blog name. When you’re starting out, you really don’t have a lot of options as far as your blog name is concerned. You either choose something that you’re passionate about or something that will be easy to remember. While this is one of those things where nothing is set in stone, you can make your life a little easier by going with a domain name that is somewhat meaningful to you and something that describes something that you like. For example, if you are a lover of birds you could try something like “Birds” or “Feathered Friends”. You can also try something a bit more tongue in cheek such as “Tropical Island Honeymoons” or “Carnival of Paintings”.
The second reason why very few bloggers actually blog for six figures is because they don’t take it seriously enough. The other thing that you must take into consideration when blogging is professionalism. In order to make your blog travel blog successful, you have to blog with complete authority. In other words, you have to treat your blog as though it were a real website and you have to treat it like a real website has the potential to make you some serious cash.
You must get started building links. Links are how people find your blog and ultimately can get started building an audience. The great thing about a travel blog is that you can easily create links from other blogs. This allows you to get started building an audience in no time. You can also use forums to start building traffic for your blog. Just remember to keep your comments and posts professional and never embarrass yourself.
The last reason why so few people blog for six figures is simply because they choose the wrong niche and domain name. For example, most people would refer to “blog about travel” as a domain name. It just looks more professional and you don’t have to worry about being penalized by Google. On the other hand, if you called your blog “my travel blog” you would instantly get banned by Google and appear lower in their rankings.
It doesn’t matter what type of blog you choose to run. You can blog about practically anything that you want. Just keep in mind what type of results you are hoping to achieve and find out what type of site name you need to use in order to achieve those results. Once you do that you will find success with your travel blog and start building an audience.
