Blogging & Photography Tips

WHY START BLOGGING TODAY?

Do you want to create a successful travel blog and work remotely while traveling? I started Anna Everywhere back in 2014 as a hobby, not knowing that I could make any money from it.

These days, I'm consistently earning three times as much money from my travel blog than I did from my regular office jobs. Anna Everywhere reached almost 2 million people within its first 2 years. I can travel whenever I want and live wherever I desire to.

While I disagree with the statement that travel blogging means getting paid to travel (you can read more about my thoughts in my article Why I'm Not Paid to Travel through My Travel Blog).


GETTING STARTED

The most common question by everyone is: is it too late to start blogging when the market is so saturated?

Not at all! As long as you can passion for the topics you want to write about and will to work as hard as you can for the first year, it will pay off.

Don't make my mistakes and start your blog properly professionally from the start.

Are Travel Bloggers Allowed to Criticize Instagrammers for Ruining Travel?

There’s no doubt that Instagram has become the most popular social platform out there. While at the first sight people scream at Instagrammers AKA influencers are the worst, travel bloggers are often doing the same tricks. Here's why and how.


LEARN HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING FROM ME

Once a year, I run a week-long intense blogging course for a very small group of aspiring bloggers. The course focuses on building a successful blog on top of social media channels (basically, it's not a course that teaches you how to become a short-lived Instagram sensation).

BLOGGING RESOURCES & TOOLS

BlueHost

It’s a great hosting company for beginners, as it’s easier to set up than its competitors and more importantly cheap.

If you’re looking for a reliable hosting company to start your blog with, Bluehost is one of the best. Find out more here.

Full disclaimer: once your blog grows in traffic and income you might want to invest in a customized hosting, but as a beginner you don't need it. Plus, I think you wouldn't want to pay $200+ a month before you even see you first Dollar from the blog 😉

Superstar Blogging

If I took a blogging course before starting my own blog, things would have been so much easier. Superstar Blogging is surely worth it!

Nomadic Matt, one of the most successful bloggers, put together an online travel media school and partnered with industry experts to teach you the skills you need to succeed in the digital travel space.

Tailwind

Pinterest is extremely important and can bring a lot of traffic to your blog. These days Pinterest is not just another social media channel, but a search enging, along with Google and Youtube.

Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduler allowing you to fully automate everything. It's seriously a game changer.

I particularly recommend their Smart Loop function recently as it saves you time by pinning things for you. At the end of the day I didn't even need a VA to do Pinterest for me.

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is the best way to make money blogging in my opinion. Simply because once your blog is grown you can be making passive income while enjoying other things and not working all the time.

Michelle's course is the best on the market, learn how she makes over $150,000 monthly.
