How To Become A Travel Blogger

Twenty years ago, travel blogging as a professional career was probably unheard of. These days, it sounds like a dream job. There are tons of travel bloggers, travelling around the world, writing about it and making money from it. However, it isn't as easy as it looks.  There is a lot of hard work that must be done before one can get to that point. I often get asked about How To Become A Travel Blogger . I began travel blogging in 2013 after I decided to combine my passions for travel and writing. Although I still have a long way to go before I am at the stage I want to be at, I have learnt a lot of valuable things along the way.

If you are serious about becoming a travel blogger and want to learn from a top expert, then I would recommend Nomadic Matt's Superstar Blogging Course.  Nomadic Matt is one of the world's most successful bloggers. He is the first travel blogger I ever followed, long before I became one, and I am still following him a decade later.

Here is a comprehensive infographic, put together by Travelstart with advice from some of South Africa's top travel bloggers.

It covers everything from Web Hosting, Content Creation, Photography and Working With Brands and Ways to Make Money.

I wish I knew all this when I started!
