Why travel blogging is not just about travel writing Why travel blogging is not just about travel writing

Why travel blogging is not just about travel writing




Everyday I get a plethora of emails from aspiring young teenagers asking me to write a post on travel blogging tips. One of the oft repeated questions is how to become a travel blogger or how to become a travel writer. But recently, my friend Neelima Vallangi asked me this question – Are you a travel blogger or a travel writer " I was even asked by her to choose between the two. For a moment, I was surprised. I had not thought of them as two different careers. The conversation led me to write this post and I continued being both a travel writer and a travel blogger, the latter of course became a priority. However, a discussion on a FB group today got me thinking again about the same topic. As a travel writer and a travel blogger, I often find it difficult to make the switch when am writing a travel story. The style, the language and even the approach changes as I start writing the stories. But then I realize that there are several differences between being a travel writer and a travel blogger and it is just not content alone.  In my mind, they are two different careers and you sometimes need to be two different people. Travel Writer focuses on getting published. A travel blogger is the publisher. This is the most fundamental difference between a travel writer and a travel blogger. As a travel writer, my priorities are all about selling a pitch to a publication. However as a travel blogger, my blog is the publication and therefore the priority. My blog is not just a random diary of my travel experiences – its a magazine by itself.  There is an editorial calendar, a marketing calendar and most important, a travel calendar as well. But that is for another post on travel blogging tips. Travel Writer prides on a byline. Travel Blogger prides on an audience For a travel writer, there is no greater joy in getting a byline. Breaking into a new magazine is a high. However for a travel blogger, there is no higher joy than getting new audiences for every story. The focus therefore is to understand what the audience wants and its not just a story that I fancy. We are excited about comments and feedback but also about the number of shares per story, the page views and several other  vital statistics which seem to be more important today than a perfect ten. For a travel writer, the story ends with a story For a travel blogger, the story begins with the story.  This is not just a play of words. As a travel writer, I am done and dusted once I send an article to a publication. All I have to do is to look for new ideas to pitch while I wait for my stories to be published. A life of a travel blogger is however not so simple. For us, the work begins once we hit the publish button. Every post has a goal and most important it has to rank on google search. There is an entire science or math behind it and a lot of work happens once a story is published. But that of course is for another post on travel blogging tips. Travel Writer sells a pitch, Travel B...
