How To Start a Travel Blog and Get Paid

I have a dream lifestyle, that I want to share with you. Well, at the moment it is a lifestyle that I am building. When I travel it creates such a passion and excitement in me. The thought of seeing new places and meeting new people is inspiring, and I feel privileged to be able to do so. I hope that it will create a passion and the same feeling for you, as it has for me.

For some people a three-week vacation each year is enough of an adventure, and then they will return to the daily grind of work. That is perfectly fine and the thought of the short vacation may be enough for them to look forward to until the next time.

But not for me, and I hope I can convince you of the same. That is why I would like to help you with how to start a travel blog and get paid. You can actually blog about any niche topic and get paid.

an alternative to your day job. You may have even looked into it further but backed of thinking that it sounds all too good to be true, and maybe it is. But what if it isn’t? What if you could work a bit extra while you were still in your day job, and build up your own business so that before too long you could tell your boss that you don’t need him anymore.

But, now that would be too scary to try to do that, what if…? Yes, well what if…? You might fail. You might just fail, but if that happens, what is the worst that can happen? You will still have all your skills, and probably more than when you started.

And do you know what? Failure is a step towards success. If you don’t fail at something then you are not trying.

That might sound harsh and it might feel scary to step outside your comfort zone, but take it from me, outside your comfort zone is where all the excitement and adventure happens. If you have read this far then maybe you need a little more encouragement to get you into the zone, the right head space and tuned into this way of thinking. Try reading some inspirational books or listen to an audio book.

The first one that I can recommend is the 4-hour work week by Tim Ferriss. Read this book and if you are not stirred to step out into something new….then just go back to your desk

way is to follow those who have been before and use their knowledge and support to expedite your process. This is exactly what I have done.

What if you could find a training site that you could join and learn the basics and while you are doing the training, you can ask any, of the other million plus members, questions to solve your issues and learn from.

Then what if, you could watch live training videos with Q and A and also have access to the past video training…… Also, what if, you could use keyword search tools as part of the site, and have a live chat where experienced members could answer your questions on the spot, Oh and let’s throw in 24/7 technical site support to help with your websites. Oh and what about having access to buy domain names and to use word press to build you website.

Oh yeah, I have gone crazy if I think you can find that all for free. All too good to be true, right? Wrong! Sorry I might be confusing you. What I mean is that is all true. I have found such a place, and to top it off the people are so friendly and helpful it feels like you have walked into a room full of like-minded masterminds who are all your new friends.

How To Learn and Earn With Wealthy Affiliate

After spending time and money searching the internet to find some way to speed up my learning on how to start a travel blog, I tried a few other sites and wasted time and money.

The options were to sign up to a course on how to blog or one site that I joined which was quite cheap turned out to be a tower (as apposed to a pyramid) of add-ons that cost more and more just to get to a stage where you could make it work for you.

Then I found Wealthy Affiliate which offered an option to join for free to give limited access to enough training and services to get you up and running. There was now pressure to upgrade, but there were incentives to do so. Especially if you wanted to be serious about building your online blogging business.

Joining the community on the site was warm and welcoming and even as a free member you got personal messages, similar to a Facebook Social Community. There was now financial incentives for any members to reach out to you, but it was all a genuine desire to help someone else join their world and learn how to make a living with an on line business.

As the saying goes, there is now such thing as a free lunch. In the case of Wealthy Affiliate you can dip your toes in the water and try the entree before you pay for the lunch, so to speak. (A couple of mixed cliches there) The initial training and the following basic training is delivered directly by one of the initial co founders of the site so it feels very down to earth and welcoming.

You are offered all the tools training and services that you need to get started. You also have access to have up to 50 websites hosted on the site, for free, which in itself will save a lot of money if you are familiar to website hosting fees from other sites.

The Risk?

In conclusion, I suggest that if you have a chance to try something that you are interested in for free, then the only risk is your time. If you use that time to learn then really it is not wasted. If you have any inclination to get into the blogging world then this is the perfect way to try it out for minimal risk.

The training does cover blogging, but if you decide that is not for you then you can actually learn how to build websites, by following the training. That in itself opens doors for you to start any online business or even one where you can offer skills to local businesses and start your own business, doing this.
