  5. I travel for fun, not sure I’d want to take up travel blogging as a career. Still, it’s great to use some of these tips. I’ve been invited for a couple of fam trips, and it was fun, but I don’t like the whole process of pitching for jobs and stuff. I guess I’m just too lazy!

    • I know, the pitching for jobs process can be challenging at the start but once you started getting contacted, you will be able to pick and choose what you want to do. The FAM trips are great and always a highlight of the hard work.

  7. I started a travel blog about a year ago, but now that this pandemic has hit I’ve floundered. I’ve been considering closing it down, but I also use it for creative writing and mental health. It’s a confusing time but I can’t wait to go through this more closely.

    • Thanks Katrina. Yes, I made the same mistake until I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate and they helped me understand how to monetise my blog the right way. Many new bloggers make similar mistakes too.

  16. I think the most important element a travel blogger should consider when thinking of about making their blog a money-making venture, is their ethics … and making sure they only recommend companies and products they would ethically stand behind and that they believe in. I hate travel blogs that are stuffed with too many different conflicting ads and affiliate links, so that it’s obvious they’re just in it for the money, and not to provide any benefit to their readers.

    • I absolutely agree with you Jay. Ethics and morals are Values that should never be replaced because of the quest for monetising.

  17. As a travel content creator, I found this very interesting. There are several things that I’m already doing, ie affiliates, but I need to be doing more. I’ve never heard of Jaxxy but I’m keen to look them up. I also never knew that lastminute.com had an affiliate programme.

    • Fantastic, I am glad you found this really useful. Jaaxy is absolutely brilliant. It’s a tool to help you outsmart your competitors. Lastminute.com do have an affiliate with Awin.

    • Thank you. Although it is most useful for travel bloggers, I believe the principles can be applied across to bloggers in all niches.
