Ten Tips for Hunting Down Stories on the Road

It can happen to us all, eventually. Dare I admit it in public though? That travel writers and traveling can jade the adventurous spirit, that you can be in a dream location and suddenly have nothing to write about. That you don’t want to write about coconut trees swaying in the tropical and scented breeze […]

Why are you Blogging?

Why are you doing, or even thinking about doing, this thing called “blogging?” Oh so long ago in blog years, back in December of 2008 sometime between the hours of midnight and 3 am, I started my first blog.  After ten clicks and minutes I had set one up with what I thought was the […]

[Posted in: Enhance Your Writing, Interviews, Overcoming Obstacles]

Lately I’ve become intrigued by the idea of a creative writing retreat. I’ve been feeling a bit fried creatively. Maybe it’s the mid-winter doldrums.

[Posted on: 25 January 2010]
[Posted in: Guest Blog Posts, Tips & Tricks]

A good parent can’t say, “Well, I changed, fed, and loved the baby yesterday. I’m tired today; I’m going to take a break.” Blogs also need constant care and attention.

Travel Writers can benefit from learning a second or third language, especially if you travel frequently to other countries.

[Posted in: Opportunities, Overcoming Obstacles, Tips & Tricks]

Lately we’ve been receiving emails – and questions in the Forum – from travel writers who are confused about how to monetize their travel blog. They’re just a little fuzzy on the whole concept of advertising, or perhaps just leery of it, and a few even confuse the concept of displaying ads on their travel […]

Just as the internet has forever changed the world of Publishing, it’s also forever changed the way a Travel Writer connects with his or her audience.
