Overcoming challenges like conversing with an autorickshaw driver when you aren’t well versed with the local language or discovering yourself while going on an adventure activity.

But how to make money from blogging with these technologies while we travel?
People love to hear the stories you carry from your trips. There are few who you meet daily but there are many people you know who live elsewhere, can be few miles away, or can be in any other city.
Travelers are adapting to the new way of storytelling to the world which is blogs. Write about all the experiences, restaurants visited, the accommodation places been to, and everything worth mentioning. People will surely refer to things online before they plan their travel to any destination. A Travel blog will act as a guide, can inspire anyone to explore a destination or can amuse an avid reader.
How can the blogger monetize through these content?
Monetize? your content!
Build content regularly. Write blogs as and when you travel or explore something new in your city. Let people on the internet know about it through your blogs. Well, it is not an overnight job. It will definitely take a year or more to have a good amount of content on your website and to start making money through content.
As you start growing, companies notice your work(or you reach out to them) and may possibly ask you to start writing content for their sponsored products or review their products.
You can link a product or a service on your website and when your readers make a purchase through your link, you earn a commission from that company for that particular purchase by that reader. This is called Affiliate sales.
Publicize? Social Handles.
Promote your own Facebook and Instagram pages on your website which leads people to contact you and follow you socially. Hence companies coming over to you and handing you the responsibility of their social handles.
Over the years these surely will fetch you many clients, various projects and regular income to fund your travel as well.
Also, doesn’t it develop you as a person while you discover yourself and improve your vocabulary as you build your content for your website? Personally, I want to share my travel stories with the world as I tend to experience a few adventures while on a trip and definitely improve my word stock.
Now I guess you have a clear picture of how to make money from blogging.
Happy Blogging and Happy Travel.
