We do not know you, but we cannot think of a more idyllic professional occupation: to see the world while you write about it. Find out how to make your travel blog and get to work - lots of places are waiting for you to visit!

1. Choose an original name
Think about what your travel passions are - food, people, landscapes, adventure ... Put them on paper together with synonyms and words from the same lexical field and make combinations between them; something should come out in the end. And last but not least: think long-term. It makes no sense to choose a name like "my wonderful year" if you want to stay in the blogging business for more than 12 months.

2. Choose the domain of the blog (also called "hosting")
Yes, this part sounds exactly like the one you didn't want to know about, but things are simpler than they seem. Imagine that the entire internet is a block of flats, and the domain is the room that you will rent to host your blog (or something like that), a place to store all your information, data, photos. It sounds like the best are BlueHost, HostGator and justHost, so you should rent a domain before all.

3. Install WordPress
WordPress is, in fact, the engine behind the blog, a web application, an effective and easy-to-use blogging tool, and there will be the whole party. The difference between a paid WordPress account and a free one is as great as that between a cat and a tiger - the paid one gives you a blog name of the type "travelfeline.com" (and not "travelfeline.wordpress.com"), gives you total control based on the data you enter, it allows you to sell advertising, install plugins, and use Google Analytics (which you won't doubt you'll need later).

4. Install a theme for your blog
Do you think packaging doesn't matter? Think it over. You can publish valuable information, you can be a magician in handling the camera, but if your website does not show a whiff, no one will listen to what you have to say. People do not judge for more than 3 seconds whether or not they stay on a website, and attractive design plays an essential role. That is why the topic of a blog is concerned.

5. Create the first pages
The difference between a page and an article (or a blog post) is that the former is a static part of your blog. While the articles will run like a movie reel as you publish them (most recently becoming the first and vice versa), the pages remain in place, in a visible space on the home page, to provide basic information about you.

About - one of the most important pages of your blog and the place where you can tell people about you, what motivates you to write and how their blog can help them

Contact page - how can people contact you directly if they have questions, if they want to propose partnerships or if they want to give you personal feedback

Privacy page - inform your readers about the collection and use of their data by cookies, as well as how you protect them

Copyright - an optional and yet important page if you want to announce that the entire content belongs to you and that you would not like to be copied in any way without your consent

6. Publish the first article
You can start with an inspirational article, talking about what traveling means to you, how they have changed you, or what you have learned by traveling around certain parts of the world. You can write an article about your first trip, your last or your future trip. You can also write about what you need to take everytime you travel, like your camera, laptop or phone. You can't miss anything, from taking the best photos and uploading them on social media to relaxing while taking a break from travelling. And for that you need your phone or laptop, to watch some movies and play games, whatever you like, arcade, shooting, maybe slots as well. These are the best options when it comes to relaxation and enjoyment. These are just examples of what to write for the first time, but there are so many choices.

Don't let your heart break to pieces unless the first article boils in popularity. Remember, it may take years for your blog to reach the results you dream of. In this first step it is important to familiarize yourself with the WordPress platform, start to outline your style, tone of voice and establish a publishing routine.

And if the white of the first page scares you and no idea is visible on the horizon, write about the city where you live (or where you grew up). However, this is probably your area of ​​expertise and you should not be fooled by the thought that no one would be interested in this; you will be surprised to find out how many people want to know more about your hometown (no matter what it is).

7. Content ideas for when you are out of whack
How do you get started? How often should you publish? How do you structure your articles? What do you write if you are not traveling at this time? 1-2 articles a week is a good average for a starter, but their quality far outweighs their quantity. Important! Write as you speak and do it in the most sincere way, give real advice, be funny and write as if you were talking to a friend.

Useful and easy to read are the list items, such as the 7 places you must visit in London or 5 of the best dishes I've tried in Spain. Another method is to ask yourself questions that have ground you throughout your travels and to find answers to them; for example, tips on traveling with little ones or how to pack your bags in a smart way. You can also go on a more personal tone and talk about your feelings and impressions from a particular destination. The sky's the limit!
