Blogging is a great way to keep in touch with your fans and bring your readers along your travel journey. Allowing them to be part of the process allows them to connect with you and that may mean more to them than you think! I wrote this piece for my blog, The Campsite, providing tips for travel blogging so you don’t burn out while you’re at it.

Beyond the Campsite

Many people travel to “get away” or pursue adventure, but that doesn’t have to mean that you disappear altogether. Even some of the most remote places on the planet have access to the internet these days, making it possible for you to have the best of both worlds: to be “away,” yet still connected. Travel blogging can be a neat way to stay in touch with family and friends and also keep a record of your trip. For the writers out there, blogging can be a great way of including your readers and fans in your travels and providing them with some words to chew on along the way.

      Thanks for your comment, Jill! If you like this blog, you may also enjoy my outdoors blog:

      I agree that the posts I write on the road can be quite vivid. I’ve typed in a tent in some fairly remote places when I’m feeling really inspired, and at other times I put the ‘reflection’ to rest and just enjoy.

      It looks from your blog that you’re in the Pacific Northwest – sounds like a great area to live in as well!
