Here are a few of our most popular articles to get you started:

Looking for something in particular?

Travel Blogger Academy is organized by the following categories so you can find what you’re looking for quickly and easily…


What’s the most important part of your travel blog?

Yep – the content.

Even if you have award-winning photography and world-class web design… it’s the content that keeps people coming back for more.

So it pays to write well.

The articles under the “Content” menu will help you write better and faster than you ever imagined possible!


Five years ago “content was king.”

Not anymore.  It takes more than just content to succeed the blogging world.

If no one knows about your blog, it’ll never get off the ground.

So like politicians, Mafia members and scum-sucking lawyers, you need to network.

But unlike these cyber weasels, you can build long-standing, profitable relationships with bloggers and provide MORE value – and make more money – than ever before.

Read the articles under the “Networking” menu to help you find and network with top travel bloggers.


Many bloggers struggle just to get their writing out there, and once they do… they figure traffic will come knocking on their door.

But we both know that’s not the case, right?

After all, you can be the greatest writer in the world, but without traffic, you’ll never get the comments, social shares and status that comes from having a wildly popular travel blog.

Traffic helps pay the bills.

So read the articles under the “Traffic” menu to learn how to growing your travel blog and how my wife Darcie and I launched Trekity.com and received over 8,000 pageviews its first week!


Let’s make one thing clear:

There is nothing wrong with making money.

Money pays for hosting. It pays for time. And it pays for your effort.

So if you’re a travel blogger, making money with your travel blog is a good idea.

But beware: bad monetization alienates readers and kills your blog.

Never monetize at the expense of your readers. Sure, paid links might seem like a good idea (or getting paid peanuts for travel guides) but ask yourself: are you building your brand? Are you building a business? And are you proud of your work?

Monetization is the final puzzle piece, and it’s where many travel bloggers get hung up.

So before you monetize your site, read the articles under the “Money” menu…


Blogging is good. Blogging is great.

But blogging can steal hours (and day/weeks/months) without actually doing anything.

Use the right tools to save time and get more done (so you can travel more!).

Just don’t get stuck chasing productivity tools.

At some point you actually have to do work.

Under the “Tools” menu are a list of all the tools I use, why I use them and (most importantly) why you should use them, too.
