When I first started a travel blog I was not sure if I would like it. But I can tell you now, it’s awesome! Starting a blog is free so there is really no reason you should not be blogging about your travel adventures already. In this post, I give you 8 reasons why you should begin writing your travel life story right now!
1. Earn money with your blog
Yes, it’s true you can earn money while traveling and writing for your blog! If you are new here, this website is all about becoming a digital nomad and live the life you always dreamt of.
Getting paid for your travel blog is easy if you know what you are doing. This was the first reason I started blogging and I fell in love with it. Now I can travel the world and write about my life, and you should do it too!

2. It’s nice to keep memories
I believe that writing down your travel story will help keep the memories. It’s really nice to read back the stories you wrote and experience that moment again.
Writing is for everyone, I hated it in the beginning and now I absolutely love it. There is just something about describing a situation or experience that sticks in your head.
3. Tell everyone your story
If you are blogging for a while you will notice that other people start to follow your story. You are doing something good for them. By sharing your story they get inspired or they know how things are somewhere else in the world.
When you are blogging family and friends can follow your journey too. This is a great way to stay in touch with them without always having to call (nothing wrong with calling though).
4. Be busy with something
Traveling is fun! But the truth is, sometimes you just want to be busy with something. It’s fun to go from city to city but every now and then you just want to settle down for a bit.
Blogging is a great way to create something and be busy. Even better if you manage to earn money with it you can make it your full-time job. And who doesn’t want that?
5. Develop your personal skills
When you start doing something you don’t know all about it will be a learning process. This is what I love about having a Travel blog, you just keep learning new skills.
For example, I was not good at writing at all, now I like it and try to learn with every article I write.
If you are not good in graphic design or whatever, the time is now to learn new things and become an expert in what you like to do!
6. Meeting new people
There is a huge online world of travel bloggers just like you. If you get involved in this world you will notice people start to reach out to you. Blogging is a nice way to meet likeminded people around you.
Apart from that people are always interested in learning about earning money while you travel. So it’s always a good conversation whether they are bloggers or not.
7. Learn about new subjects
When you need to write some articles about a subject you will learn about it. I always like to learn new things and I noticed that with blogging the process goes fully automatic.

8. Visit new places and be free
When you are able to work from your computer you don’t have to work a regular job anymore. The life of a digital nomad is perfect… You decide whether you want to stay somewhere or not, you are in full control.
When you earn money with your blog, you are free to go in the world wherever you want!
