Today, blogging has become an incredibly popular hobby (and business). Each week, thousands of new blogs are launched across the globe. Of course, not everyone sticks at blogging long enough to make a go of it. However, for those who do, blogging can develop into more than just a little extra income, it can become a way of life.
Of course, there are various blogging niches, from beauty to business. However, one of the most popular niches has to be travel blogging. The question is, what is it about being a travel blogger that’s so appealing to so many of us? It’s time to find out! Below, I’ve put together a guide to the four best things about being a travel blogger. Have a read and see if you agree!
1 – You get to see and explore the world.
Without a doubt, one of the best things about travel blogging is that you get to see and explore the world. For the most part, very few of us actually get to spend a lot of time exploring the world. We might go on the odd vacation or take a couple of extended trips every so often, but that tends to be about it. However, if you’re a travel blogger, you’ve got a fantastic excuse to get out there and see the world. This is especially true if you make blogging your career.
2- You can stay in fancy hotels for free.
One of the major perks of travel blogging is that you will most probably get the chance to stay in lots of beautiful hotels for free. Admittedly, the establishment will expect you to review everything from their hotel bathroom pods to their choice of wines, but what does that matter? In exchange for your writing services, you’re getting a free hotel stay. What job could be better than one that gives you the opportunity of bagging free hotel stays?
3- You can live anywhere.
For a lot of people, the reason that they live where they do is because they’re tied down by their jobs. However, if you choose to work as a travel blogger (or as a blogger of any kind), you have the ability to live anywhere. What an incredible opportunity – being able to live wherever your heart desires. Whether you’ve always wanted to move to sunny Spain or live in New York, as a travel blogger you have the opportunity to do so.
4- Your life is one big adventure.
If you’re one of those people who always has itchy feet and can’t wait to get away and visit somewhere new, then being a travel blogger could be the perfect lifestyle for you. If you make a career out of travel blogging, you can make your life one big adventure. You can go wherever you want to whenever you want to, just as long as you can make a post out of your trip.
The truth is that there are lots of benefits to being a travel blogger, these are, however, four of the best ones. 🙂
