Travel bloggers have a unique story to tell. For some, the nine-to-five routine got too tight so they quit their company jobs and set off to see the world, often with no plans. Others dreamed of traveling the world since they were young, and when their resources gave them the opportunity, they packed their bags and began their journey. At some point along the way, they started sharing their travel experiences online, created a catchy title, and their blogs were born. Some travel bloggers are young while others are more experienced, but they all have one thing in common: a passion for adventure. With today’s strict travel restrictions, travel bloggers have found themselves in a precarious position. What should I write about? The world’s best travel bloggers share their opinion.

When the stay at home / no trip order came in, I told my audience at Amateur Traveler that my plan was to still talk about travel. I am not an expert on viruses. I may have opinions on the subject, but no one should listen to me. I told them that I believe we will travel again and that my plan was still to look forward to that day and keep talking about travel. I received a lot of support from the community in making this decision. In order to Amateur traveler still talks about travel on podcast and blog.

This hiatus made me think differently about my blog and diversify the subjects of my articles. Bucket List Journey is known as a travel blog, but lists like this are about much more than just travel. So I’m focusing on articles to help make the website more rounded and potentially more sustainable in the future (like writing an at-home bucket list post). When it comes to travel, I focus in my articles on destinations that first visitors may see when we return to normal, such as: US National Parks.

Right now I want to serve my audience in every possible way while they are isolated. As someone who has been traveling alone for over eight years, I know what it is like to be and have alone for a long time shared my best tips for a productive, introspective experience. I also encourage people to do it travel differently if we have the chance. I feel like travel has become curated photo shoots, everyone queuing in the same places to take pictures, and it’s less about connection and adventure. I’m not immune to it either, so my personal goal is not to have a destination when traveling – to just let the journey unfold.

In all honesty, none of us know what will happen in the next few months of the trip. I know people are desperate for experts to tell them what’s going to happen, but they should know that none of us have a clue and that we are just papal. Because of this, I’m not currently writing any predictions. What people want more than anything right now is comfort and connection. That’s why I write posts that entertain and comfort people. Also, I’m offering my readers the opportunity to connect in small groups in video chats, and ask for a $ 5 donation and private video chats (I charge $ 75 for 45 minutes). I asked my blogger friends about it the most entertaining stories they have ever written. I also write a lot of personal content.

I am booking A mix of content that focuses on both the reality of quarantine and the desire to travel. I’ve compiled a list of organizations that offer engaging free content ranging from virtual tours of cities, countries, and institutions like museums and art galleries to journaling workshops, zoo visits, and glass blowing demonstrations. On social media I post pictures of trips, talk about looking forward to returning and what made each destination unique, then ask what places they miss or want to discover. I’ve also shared what I’m doing, what’s new, like cooking and doing yoga, and through my photography and video clips, gave them a feel for what it’s like in New York City.

We are all in a situation where the only responsible thing is not to travel. Like everyone else, we stay at home, which is Tromsø in Northern Norway to us. We should be traveling through Sri Lanka right now and enjoying the stunning tropical beaches, nature, people, ancient cities and hill country. Luckily we had just returned from a six week trip Japan Before all of this happened, we had thousands of photos and fresh content to write for our blog. While these times are stressful for all of us, we don’t give up. We focus more than ever on our writing and photography so that when things get better we can go back out and explore our fascinating world.

Except for one post about how travel bloggers are affectedI tried to avoid writing too much about the current situation. I prefer to publish content that will last a long time. Instead of speculating about what might or might not happen, I used the time to post evergreen content that conveyed my brand values. One of the topics I write about is “Deeper Travel”. That’s why I shared a post about the experience other cultures from home. I’ve wanted to do some of these branding posts for a while, but I’ve been too overwhelmed with writing handy travel guides while the trips are still fresh in my mind. This “break” gave me a great opportunity to share this instead.

I’m actually pretty lucky at these times. I have an amazing one YouTube travel photography Community and there is a lot of support there. And there are things I can do that have nothing to do with travel. This week I’m going to be spending a day “touring” our garden here in the UK and trying to get some pictures. Regarding my blog, I have a massive backlog of articles that I have not yet written from various goals. So, I’m playing catch-up and trying to cross a few items off my blog housekeeping to-do list. I wrote a piece that relates to the crisis A list of photo activities that people can do in isolation.
