What do you want to see in a Travel blog?
im planning to make a travel blog and I want to know other people's opinion on what they want to see or check out in a travel blog. thanks a lot.
If I was going to read a travel blog I'd probably just want the basic content: reviews of tourist attractions, suggestions of places to stay, local culture and the like. Photos are always good too!
I love reading stories that tell of the author's personal experiences. Where did they go? What did they see? Who did they meet? Travel resources are great (tourist attractions, where to stay, where to eat ect) but nothing beats a well-told story! When a travel blog is written from the point of view of the author the place being described becomes more real to the audience. They get to see, smell and hear everything as the author experienced it.
I also think it would be really cool if you added interviews with locals. People who have lived there a long time and know the land better than anyone else ever could. This is where you can find the truly unique stories.
I like to see original photos and honest, personal content. If the person had a great time, I want to know how and why. I don't want the same info that I'd see in Wikipedia or the same adjectives used in other travel blogs. This isn't hard to do. I think it's very easy to do.
I think if the writer starts with that then the other stuff (travel tips, reviews of hotels/restaurants, etc) will flow.
That's what I try to deliver in my hubs. I've lived in Japan for the past few years and a lot of my hubs are about places I've been.
BTW, good luck on you blog!
