Why travel blogging is fun and useful!

Why travel blogging is fun and useful!

Well, let me be honest, I am a pretty lazy person, having said that I am making it obvious that blogging really wasn’t my first choice or idea, the very idea of blogging meant hours of typing, hours in front of the laptop, lots of editing, posting, reading etc. As characteristic to lazy people I took the easier way out, like sharing my travel experiences on Facebook, Instagram, or rather let’s say social networking websites, or if I really was in the mood, maybe take to TripAdvisor to pen down my experiences, having a full time job in the IT industry and other interests to go with it, made it more so obvious due to lack of time and energy.

 So what made me change my mind??

 No 1. Travel journal

On an average I travel 10-12 times a year, and by travel I mean leisure travelling, not business or work related trips. So having a weak memory, inspite of travelling to a lot of places I would usually not remember a lot of stuffs about my trips. It was infuriating and disappointing at the same time. The obvious answer to this was a travel journal. Very soon I realized that the last time I held a pen in my hand to write something down was 6 years back. So basically my handwriting was too disinteresting for me to find the courage to read the lines ever again. That meant the obvious solution was an online journal. Once I was convinced I would be maintaining a travel journal, why not as well a blog that would also allow me to share my experiences and interact with others like me.

 No 2. Extreme travelers

Frankly, I am sure a lot of you might agree or disagree that the travel blogs usually out there online are by extreme travelers. What do I mean by extreme travelers? The travelers who are usually long term, backpacking travelers or the professional travel bloggers. What I found amiss was the regular next door, working class travel bloggers. I definitely am not surprised though that maybe the other half are too busy to take the time out to write things down, but then somewhere there remains a gap. The criteria’s of travel for a full time salaried person and an out and out professional travelers are very different. For me the travel is more budget, time frame and convenience targeted. So getting to know travel experiences from that perspective is really something I would like to contribute to.

 No 3. Biased posting

Sometimes when I really liked travelling to a place or have a great experience, I have tried posting in open travel review websites like TripAdvisor, etc. but it seems half of my reviews go unposted. I don’t blame them though, I am sure they need to maintain a certain decorum. But by trying to write down posts that seem postable to them maybe I would be compromising on my honest experience sharing indirectly, which definitely I have a problem with. In my own blog I can write honestly, no pleasing or screening.

 No 4. Its Liberating

I never imagined how liberating it could feel to be able to share and express ones thoughts or experiences. What started as a way to keep my travel experiences organized, now has me totally hooked on to it.

  9. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
