When you start a travel blog, you might wish to expand your format beyond the standard written one. Below are some excellent travel blogs to check out for a variety of formats!

Written Travel Blog

By far the most common and low-maintenance option, a text-based travel blog is simple to create, and aside from learning how to add a new post, it requires no prior knowledge of special software. It can be difficult to force yourself to write often, but if you’re able to create a reliable schedule, you can gain some very loyal readers.


Two text-based blogs to read:

Audio Travel Blog

Podcasting is another great option for presenting your travel blog. Not only can you host your recordings directly on your website, but you can also distribute them to online radio and podcast sites. It’s also an excellent way to convert video voice-overs to another format that can reach more readers. Win win!

Video Travel Blog

Depending on the types of videos you’d like to create, your blog can range from a simple, easy-to-upload series to a more complex, polished one. This is a very time-intensive option, but a really great one if you want to expand beyond the traditional travel blog format. Videos can be uploaded and shared across a lot of different platforms, allowing you to reach lots of fellow travelers (and inspire new ones!).
