How to write an article for your travel blog

Writing a travel blog (which would be a travel blog but which is more cool and international ) is not only a nice and fun way to share our travel experiences. It can also become an earning opportunity and – why not dream big? – even a job. To achieve these goals, however, your blog will have to be very successful.

There are many elements to take into consideration for this to happen, but the fundamental one will always remain linked to the contents. However beautiful, functional, trendy, optimized your blog may be, it is to read what is written that people will visit it the first time and (hopefully) all the following times.

There is no SEO guide that does not recommend this: write unique, quality content that responds to a need, and write it well. But how do you write well?

If you have decided to open a travel blog , you should like to write – otherwise you would have limited yourself to an instagram account , you would have brought a camera instead of a notebook, and you would have gone on by hashtag. Probably, however, your real passion is traveling , and it is unlikely that you have a resume as a writer or professional writer (which, in my imagination, are the only two categories of people who are safe when they write). So how do you write a good article? How do you tell a story well?

There is an aura of mystery around this topic: nobody knows! There are no rules, there is no manual or protocol. Ask the most successful travel writer of the moment, and at most he will tell you to try and try until he can.

What if we want to speed up the process? Why not try to learn from whom (by dint of trying) has already succeeded?

Here then is a collection of tips and practical indications on how to write an article for your travel blog .

Write effective headlines

Most of the time, the title will be the last part of your article you will write, but it is the first one that the visitor of your blog will find himself in front of, the one that will encourage him to read the rest; and it is also one of the most important elements taken into consideration by search engines (in all likelihood, the title of your article will appear in the list of results of a Google search).

Write synthetic, captivating and descriptive titles of the content of the article. Avoid titling “Between one flower picked and the other donated the inexpressible nothing” an article about places in Japan where you can watch the cherry blossom. Instead, opt for “Cherry Blossom in Japan, where you can see it.”
