Are you a travel blogger and want your posts to be included on The Travel Blogs? Join over 200 other bloggers and become a contributor!
There are 2 ways to easily to promote your travel blog posts.
1. The Quick and Easy
Double click where you would like your post pinned on the map below, fill in the details and submit.
Please use the zoom feature to be as accurate as possible before double clicking. You can drag and move the pin once you have dropped it.
Be 100% to include your blog post URL in the description so people find your post.
Please note: Please include a tooltip of fewer than 15 words
2. Takes a bit longer but you can include a synopsis
Fill in the form below with a brief synopsis and link to the post you’d like to submit and if it matches the criteria I’m are looking for (more on that below), I’ll add it to our interactive travel blog maps with do follow link to your post.
Once pinned to a map, the post will also be in my social media rotations and potentially be used in my email campaigns (sign up here if you haven’t already). Where possible I will try to tag you in any social media shares, so if you see it, a further share or engagement is always welcome ?
We share your travel blog posts
I want to be clear that this is about sharing great content, not stealing it. I will use the synopsis you supply below and the link will direct users to the post on your page.
There are no limits to what we are looking for and everywhere is possible.
The important part
Please read before submitting your post
The reason for the synopsis is to introduce your post, please don’t just copy and paste bits from it – very bad SEO juju.
It must be a link to a post and not the homepage of your blog.
No Sponsored or paid for posts. Posts that are about a sponsored trip or stay are OK, as long as it’s not glaringly obvious and comes over as genuine.
This is for bloggers, so sorry, not travel agencies or companies looking for cheap backlinks.
The synopsis can be a bit about you but the aim is to have it in that particular post – a place to pin – not your entire blog.
Also – If you would rather I use photos from the post rather than uploading just let me know. I won’t use any of your pics unless you say so.
What should you write in your synopsis
This is the introduction to your post so sell it and make the reader click the link. Think about where it is about, why you wrote it, what’s your favourite bit in it and be sure to finish with a great call to action that will make the reader want to continue to read and follow that link.
Please bear in mind these three points:
1. Submission doesn’t guarantee publication. See tips below for what I look for.
2. I reserve the right to alter the copy slightly to fit in with our style or to improve SEO.
3. The posts are about a destination and need to be pinned to a map, this means they must be destination specific. Posts about generic travel advice, packing lists or anything of that kind will most likely not be published.
What makes a great travel blog post (in my opinion)
I love storytelling blogs. Lists are easy to create but to tell a story and transport someone to that destination through the power of your words is something different altogether. I want the stories to be entertaining and engaging, not just we did this then we did that. Why did you do it? What was it like? Would you do it again? Would you do it differently?
That said, I’m not completely against lists, so if it is well thought out and will offer value to readers then great, submit it.
Images. I love taking photos and seeing amazing photos.
As mentioned above, sponsored trips are OK as long as the post comes over as genuine and not just a good review for a free activity or stay, it can’t be sounding like an advert.
Finally blog design, they’ve got to look good too, I’m not going to link to anything that is crowded with adverts and affiliate links.
