Blogging and Traveling – How to Have Enough Money

Turning your hobby into a full-time job is a dream for every one of us. After all, you will be doing what you love, and having fun in the process. So if you enjoy traveling and you often document your adventures on your blog, you should think about making a career out of it. Even though it might sound like a fairy tale, you can travel the world and earn money while you do so.

Having a travel blog can finance your voyages and enable you to visit various locations all around the globe. Be prepared to invest a lot of your time into creating interesting content and attracting the readership to your articles. There are numerous ways to do this so let’s start with the basics.

Affiliate links

You can start by making affiliate recommendations to your audience. While this might not make you a millionaire, you will still earn some money, especially if you have a large number of followers or readers. If you are unsure where to start, share Amazon products you personally use and hotel bookings on your blog. Your readers should be able to click on an affiliate link which will lead them to another website where they can purchase an item or book accommodation.

You will earn a percentage from each and every sale, but your readers will not pay any extra money for their purchase. Always recommend trusted products or hotels you are familiar with. This will form a stronger bond between you and your readers. Therefore, they will always return to your blog in order to find a great place to stay at.

I decided to launch a travel start up months prior, but it wasn’t making enough money for me to cover all my expenses. For the next four months I went without a paycheck. With less than $3,000 to my name, I went on a 3 week trip in Europe. It was something that I had planned 6 months beforehand. And my friends had already committed to it. I couldn’t back out. But my finances wanted me too.

Here is how I was able recover my financial stability and make that trip:

I eliminated “unreasonable” expenses.

Coffee, beer, eating out, public transportation, and shopping, were all wants. I started to focus on the needs. I eliminated the “want” expenses and started saving $600 per month. Do this if you want to enjoy future trips. Only focus on your real needs.
