We all love to travel. Exploring this beautiful planet is our priority, but we must consider some eco-friendly options and save our magnificent world for future generations while traveling. Blogging is the best way to put your ideas out there, spread awareness, and help people.
Travel blogs are becoming a big thing nowadays. People are traveling more than ever, and travel blogs are becoming more beneficial and exciting. Though now, at the times of corona, travel blogs are more related to safe travel. Here are a few tips to start your eco-friendly blog that will stand out.
It's all in the name
Trust me, a good blog name will attract a lot of readers to your blog. Make it sensible, exciting, and unique. Naming your blog can be the most challenging part, but you need to take your time. As I mentioned before, your blog’s name should be unique, but it shouldn’t be tricky and complicated. Chose an attractive but straightforward name that is easy to search.
There are several platforms out there for bloggers. If you are a beginner and don’t know if you have the energy to keep blogging, I’d suggest starting your blog on either a cheap hosting using WordPress or on free website like Wix or Blogger.
A beginner can learn all the basic skills on free blogging platforms but free platforms don’t provide tools for further growth and then your blog doesn’t entirely belong to you. Once you know all the basics, tips, and tricks, you want to move your site to your own hosting space and use WordPress because then you own your own site and have more editing possibilities on how your site looks and what addons you use.

Choosing a good theme is essential. There are several free and paid themes on different platforms. It is necessary to select your theme according to the type of content you put forward. For instance, if you like sharing your adventures through pictures, there are several particular themes for it, and if you want to write essays and stories, you can choose the theme according to your choice. You can always change the theme’s pictures (and also colors if you know CSS-language).
The content you put forwards matters the most. First, you need to decide a strategy, for instance, how many times you’ll post in a week or your word count, etc. The second thing is to write valuable and meaningful content. Even if your writeup is short, it must be wholesome, don’t just splatter random words.
Promoting your blog is essential. It will increase your reach, and your blog might show up on the top of search engines if your blog is well-known and preferred. You can use social media marketing or email marketing, or advertisers like Google to promote your blog.
Your personality matters a lot. You should portray a very energetic and positive attitude towards your readers. Your readers love your personality, and you must be accommodating and cheerful towards them.
Networking is essential; working alone has its benefits, but working with a group can change your perspective, give you new ideas, and inspire you. You can also make new friends and do collaborations.
