It’s been decades since physical journals were the main way (and pretty much the only way) that travel bloggers documented their life on the road. With the boom of technology, social media, and travel culture as well, influencers have redefined what it means to be a travel journalist. Here’s how they’re changing the game and how you can be doing the same.


It goes without saying that Instagram is the number one platform for travel blogging. See a wonderful view? Snap a photo with a cool filter and flank it with a caption about how amazing your day was. Have an inspiring thought to share? Create a story and share with your followers what you’re doing, where you are, and what you’re thinking.


If you’re someone who loves making videos during your travels, YouTube is the best way to get your name out there as a travel blogger. Post videos of all kinds, including vlogs, interviews, or anything you can think of.

Personal Website

You totally have the ability to create your very own website where you can blog about everything you’re doing. If you love writing, a personal online blog is a great place to share your endless thoughts with your fanbase.
