You agree with me that traveling is an expensive field & one cannot travel wherever they wanted each week or every month.
Yes, you might fancy that the people who run travel blogs might travel every time for every content. The same thought I used to have on the travel blogs during my initial stage.
Later I realized that if you’re a single person managing everything on your own. Then you must stick your focus on one thing rather than running after everything.
During my beginning days, I used to publish one post in a month or maybe takes a much longer time to publish.
Suppose, If you are working for a travel magazine or a travel company. Then, it can understand that you might have to travel for every article.
But, when you are working on your own blog and as a travel blogger. Then, you need to consider various factors that come into play, and money constraint is the biggest of them.
3. Give Your Level the BEST before Publishing
Giving your level the best is the most essential part.
Moreover, it somehow related to the preparation stages that how everything requires to be executed then presented.
To be honest, during my commencement days in the travel blogging, it was more like –
No re-checking of the content
No use of images that support the context
The content was not much informative too
Sooner, I realized that I needed to change how I think.
4. Being True to the Readers
The readers are the ones who will be going to visit the blog and read the content.
For e.x – If someone landed on the blog and founded that everything is written does not sound true in real. Then, the possibility of people not appreciating the blog will grow high.
Let’s consider another example of news TV –
Suppose you had switched on a news channel. Somehow, you had found that they are showing misleading news or stolen videos/content of another channel. Then, the next time you don’t even wish to visit that channel again. Because of the perspective that had been created.
I hope that my point is crystal clear here.
5. Provide Value to the Viewer
Being Genuine and providing value go hand in hand.
Why would someone visit my travel blog if I am not sharing true or worthy learning?
Giving value and knowledge can be a turning point when people decide why they visit your blog.
Being Consistent is the way to make your efforts reach the people continuously.
I am still shocked by the blog post published numbers. Phew!
9. To Keep Learning and Evolving
Learning shouldn’t be stopped at any point of time in life.
With this point, a perfect example came to my mind during last year’s lockdown.
Earlier, I didn’t know much about photography and compositions.
Last year was an opportunity when everything was at a halt. I learned a lot about long exposure and landscape photography, to be precise. I read multiple articles, books, and watched youtube videos around that subject, and eventually practiced at home during the lockdown.
When the lockdown was lifted and after some time. I even went to a specially chosen place Jibhi to implement on the field what I had learned in those days.
You can see the photos I clicked on the photoblog from Jibhi Himachal.
And, I was glad to see how I progressed in this subject over the years.
That’s it from my experience.
I believe, if you had read the whole article, then I was valuable in sharing my experience.
Now, I wanted you to share your experience with me 😃.
Let me know how you have utilized your time during the lockdown?
