There Can Be No Compromise on Content
It’s all fine and excellent that you’ve come up with a spot on blog name and a well-planned website. But what is going to push people to read your blog is good, nifty content. Concentrate on the questions people have asked on your blogs and other travel forums. Give answers in your next articles.

To Write Interesting, Be Interesting
The Ladakh is a beautiful place, but I was getting tired of the ‘bike trips’ everyone was going on to this sweet and lovely destination. I stopped opening articles on Ladakh in spite of the stunning GoPro pictures of the Manali to Ladakh trail. After that, I came across a great story called ‘This is the Ladakh everyone forgets to see’ which talked about a side that I’d never read before. The author handled this by traveling to a lesser-seen part of the place and staying and conversing with local families. So you want to tell a different piece, do something interesting and unique. Take the path less well-travelled.
Identify Your Audience and Target Them
There’s a quote says that “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” So I say don’t squander your time and effort on such peaches, errr, readers. Haters will always hate. For example: When I have written an article on the best bars in Delhi as per to me with a food group on Facebook, I was litigator of pushing paid content. And some people, of course, said that the list characterized “bad” bars. So in lieu of violence with them, I just stopped posting my articles there. I shared it on a Delhi forum, where it was well heard and even posted by members with their friends.
Be a Social Media Rockstar
Think of your blog as an object. Once you’ve designed and packaged your item, you have to sell it. Because the truth is, no matter how good your unit is, people will only be able to purchase/use it when they know about its existing. And the way to expand awareness is with the use of social media. Stay live on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Experiment with your blog links travel’s photos and quotes. Study vogue to recognize what works with your readers. And don’t let slip to be social. Respond to comments and share compelling content which shared by your followers.
Learn the Art of SEO
Blogging and search engine optimization, aka, SEO, have a deep relation. So if you are not aware about the concept, spend some time familiarizing yourself with it. Making your articles, SEO-friendly will make sure that search engines such as Google will find them. This once more means a much greater reach.
Keep At It, Don’t Lose Steam
Looking after a blog is a lot of hard work. Some days you’ll enjoy, other times you’ll struggle. Then there will be the days when that story that took you four days to write will get no takers. That’s when you’ll have to push along. And you can’t sit back after writing a few posts even. You frequently have to feed readers with quality content, so they become so habitual that they can barely wait for your next article.
Travel blogging is a superb method of training your journalistic skills, sharing your knowledge with a scrutinizing audience, and organizing your thoughts and challenging your analysis. Just think of that writing, photographing, posting and sharing may take more time than you await, so grant for a learning curve and don’t allow it to take over your life.
