Travel blogging ideas. Part 2

* Answer simple questions. Let's say you just returned from Germany. Although you may think that everyone knows such simple things as the fact that Berlin is the capital of Germany, it does not hurt to refer to this as a response in the new article. You won’t believe how many requests Google gets for the simplest questions, and this is quite logical. Not all people are geographically savvy, except that the inhabitants of different parts of the world are familiar with different parts of the map. You should not rely on the fact that everyone knows something, just because you are familiar with it. Add more meaning to the article by including some history, key facts and other information. Often, answers to more questions than someone was about to ask can only be helpful.

* Watch for yourself. As a traveler and writer, I often describe a tangible or tangible experience, such as the appearance of an old synagogue or an enchilada, cooked on a makeshift improvised grill from a stolen trolley from a supermarket. However, it is sometimes useful to write about your feelings and sensations, and about what has got into your head. You can devote self-digestion to self-observation a post every few months. This will give readers a deeper insight into what makes you travel and, perhaps, allow them to feel closer to you on some levels.

* Write about the news. Recently, the tourism industry can always boast of interesting developments, events and incidents, but most of them never get into the news and headlines. Writing once a week or once a month about the latest news in the world of travelers is a great way to keep people up to date with events, and this will help you highlight your website or blog among many others. Do not be afraid to write about even the trivial, in your opinion, events - someone will appreciate the fact that you mentioned a new inexpensive hostel that opened in Quito, or that a pilots strike took place in Paris.

* Post photos and videos. We all take photos when we go abroad to remember happy moments or just to keep a beautiful view or building as a keepsake. Video is becoming more common, and the camera - everything is more compact. A great photo or video can be a great idea for a post - write a short description to it, but make it capacious.

* Tell legends. The cultures around the world and the differences between them impress me, and I love to learn even the tiny facts about each of them, because it helps me to feel a stronger connection with people I’ve met or just met. Suppose you meet a native when you travel, and he tells you a local legend over a glass of beer. Such stories make your blog more convincing for readers, they will definitely appreciate an interesting addition to their guidebooks.

* Post your favorite recipe as an article. Although I am not a gourmet as such, I do enjoy the local food in the various places I travel to. When you write about traveling, you mention your favorite places and destinations, experiences, talk about nightlife and people, why not put out a recipe for the wonderful dish that you have recently tried? This will bring your website to a new level and help you stand out among other similar blogs.

In the US, I can easily find recipes from different corners of the globe, online, or by other means, but they will never be truly authentic. On sites like AllRecipes.com, many people add their own variations of different dishes, but wouldn't it be great to get an authentic Sate Ayam Indonesian recipe from an old woman you met in Badung instead of thousands of versions from unknown online users? To explain to your readers that the recipe you’ve got is truly authentic, and tell them the background to getting it is a great way to get reader approval and positive feedback.

* Tell readers about a foreign language. Like recipes, you may have remembered a few conversational phrases when you were abroad, and they turned out to be very useful, but they can not always be found in phrasebooks. Share them with your readers, describe the context and the correct pronunciation, and sooner or later someone will thank you for it.

* Ask your readers. To maintain the valuable relationships that exist between the site and readers, it is necessary to interact with them and make them feel necessary and important. Check out a few old comments from readers, among them you can often find hints or tips that can be expanded to the next article. Ask readers questions, keep in touch with them on Facebook, create polls on Twitter; write down the results of the survey in a new post, and it will surely attract people who are more than ready to continue the conversation.
