I am having a similar experience to the author of the last post we talked about, Lucas at Fast Company. I have been approached by a really nice guy, with strong marketing skills to review his site. I don’t necessarily love the site, but I admire his efforts. So, I am going to address a general topic that I’ve been wanting to discuss.
Are you writing for a travel blog yet?
Writing for blogs is a great way to propel yourself into the travel writing world, especially if it is a niche market. Several blogs are “No-pay”, especially if you are creating them yourselves, but some blogs do pay, and believe it or not, the going rate is in the $4-5/post range. As a writer, that was shocking to me at first, but it’s what the industry supports, and many people who love blogging are finding a temporary benefit to blogging for hire, as opposed to doing it themselves.
