Travel Blog 101
Launch Your Unique, Beautifully-Designed and Valuable Travel Blog in Just 30 Days.
Are you feeling overwhelmed or lacking the confidence to create a travel blog from scratch?
Do you want to share your travel experiences and inspire would-be travellers but scared off by the tech?

It may come as a shock to you that owning a travel blog isn't as #wanderlust as it seems!
What are you waiting for?
DON'T MISS OUT! THE DOORS CLOSE IN...
Trekking the world may be easy…but putting your experiences to paper (or keyboard) may not. In attempting to create my first travel blog, I discovered that it wasn’t quite as easy as I expected – and when I reached out to fellow travel bloggers, I discovered many had the same struggles.
Many travel bloggers, myself included, felt overwhelmed with creating a travel blog; they worried that people might overlook their experiences on the vast expanse of the digital world. Others had trouble understanding the technology behind setting up a blog. Many wanted to make money from their travel blogs, but didn’t know where to start. However, all the bloggers I talked to had one thing in common – they all wanted to share their travel experiences online.
Does this sound like you?
After finding so many similarities between myself and other travel bloggers, I was inspired to create a course that would make the art of travel blogging easy – and so, Travel Blog 101 was born.
You had the financial freedom and lifestyle to travel the world and tick off your bucket list along the way.
You could share you travel stories and experiences with an audience who hangs on your every word.
You were paid to travel and experience destinations, hotels, tours and activities.
You were part of a strong, successful and supportive community of other travel bloggers who motivate each other to do better each and every day.
You could do something you LOVE for a change.
Well, now you can!
So who is this course for?

Do you dream of packing it all in and travelling the world full time? Imagine sailing the spectacular blue and white Greek Islands or climbing the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Successful travel blogging gives you the means, and an excuse, to work from anywhere in the world there is an internet connection.

You work full-time or part-time and enjoy blogging about your travels on the side. One day it may evolve into a full-time gig but for now you are content in sharing your experiences and your journey to inspire others to experience the same joys.
The Absolute Beginner
Have you recently caught the travel bug but haven't yet travelled to that many places? Maybe you're not sure where to start or how to go about actually creating a travel blog from scratch with all the tech that is involved.

+ Will I start making money with my blog after taking this course?
To start monetizing your blog, you first need a solid foundation and a clear idea of who your ideal reader is. Making money from your travel blog takes time and consistency. Travel Blog 101 sets the tone for monetization by teaching you how to grow your email list with an engaged audience and new subscribers. You can't start making money from Day 1, otherwise everyone would do it, however, with these proven strategies you can start to earn an income.
+ I am not a 'tech' person, will I be able to keep up?
You my friend, are who I made this course with in mind! I too am not the most 'techy' of bloggers but with hard work and persistence I was able to create a blog I love. That will not be the case for you though because you will have my step-by-step video tutorials that are as simple as 1-2-3. And if you have any questions or are getting stuck, head on over the the exclusive Travel Blog 101 Facebook group.
+ What if I am short on time. How much time do I need to be successful with this course?
Ideally, you need to set aside 4 hours a week, that's only 30 minutes a day! Don't worry if you are short on time! I know we all live busy lives these days, that is why I have made all of the content downloadable so you can learn on-the-go, on your daily commute, whilst going for an afternoon walk or on a long flight. Everything including the videos, worksheets, checklists and guides are downloadable so there are no excuses.
