As fellow citizens of Austin, Texas for the last year, we first met Shaun and Erica during the planning stages for Austin’s Meet Plan Go event. We quickly learned that we had a lot in common, specifically a mutual love for travel. Not too long ago, Shaun and Erica made their dreams a reality: they quit their jobs, sold off most of their stuff, and took the road south from the U.S.A. with no plans to come home anytime soon. It sounds pretty incredible, especially since they gave up dream jobs working for a popular video game company. But now they are wandering through Honduras, living the long-term travel dream.
If you’re planning a trip, then you’ve probably thought to yourself, “I should set up a travel blog.” The benefits are obvious and numerous. Your friends and family can keep up with your adventures and photos. You can keep a journal for your memories. If you get enough traffic, you can even advertise and make money.
But how do you do it? What if you’re not a geek? Fear not fellow travelers, we’re here to help! There are many different options available, and we’re going to go over the easiest and best ways to set up a travel blog for your next big journey.
