When it comes to writing a travel blog there are many different things that any TALK international student should consider on order to make their blog unique and interesting. Here are some tips about writing a great travel blog, and entertaining your audience!
When writing about different travel destinations, try to avoid writing about the bad parts of the trip that you may have experienced. Your audience is looking for the good points and the positive side, so always be mindful of this. You may also ruin the reputation of an establishment, a hotel, a tour guide unnecessarily if you are too critical.
Record Things as They Happen
When something major happens on your trip write it down either on laptop or your travel journal, so you remember all the details. This will help you record your experiences in real time, and provide you with a clear memory so you can recall what happened with greater clarity and in a specific order.
Filter Your Content
Before uploading anything it is best to make sure you filter your content for your appropriate audience. Make sure you filter out any offensive language, that you avoid using strange terms or phrases which you do not explain, that you edit your blog, as well as fact-check if you have important details of a specific area that you are wanting to convey. This way you know your blog is the best it can be.
Consider Future Employment
When writing your blog, you may find that a future employer may be interested in looking at it, especially if you are looking to be a journalist or writer. Write your blog professionally, as if it were for a portfolio, as this will look great in future employment applications.
