1. Document the Planning of Your Summer Vacation
Planning is everything in travel blogging and writing about your summer vacation. Your readers want to know how you went about picking your vacation destination, booking everything, and what type of budget you stuck to.
Use this travel blogging post to educate your audience on the do’s and don’ts of travel booking. You can offer tips on which online booking sites you used in your travel plans. Also, be sure to mention how you went about choosing an airline, hotel, attractions, etc.
For this portion of your travel blogging endeavor, you can either blog as you go, or start creating content once your summer vacation is booked. Many travel bloggers find it easier to create fresh pieces of content after each step of the travel planning process is complete.
2. Journal Once or Twice Per Day While You’re on Your Summer Vacation
It isn’t necessary for you to type up a new blog post for each day of your summer vacation while vacationing. Although, some dedicated travel bloggers favor this approach. Doing so may help you remember every detail of your trip, but some travel bloggers find it stressful.
Your journal entries don’t have to be long or take over five or ten minutes to write up. Jot down all the things you did that day, morning, afternoon, or evening. Don’t worry about getting too specific or detailed. These notes will help you craft your blog post and destination review later on.
You may find it helpful to spread your journal entries by day of travel or attractions/sights seen. This way, you can write a more cohesive travel blog post that follows a chronological order. It’s especially helpful to journal your summer vacation this way if your summer vacation is a week or longer.
3. Capture all Your Summer Vacation Memories with Pictures
Pictures are an absolute must for travel blogging. The more pictures, the better your travel blog and summer vacation blog posts will perform. Your readers want to experience your summer vacation right along with you as they read.
So, be sure to take plenty of pictures throughout your summer vacation. Captures photos of the scenery, your hotel, top attractions, popular tourist sights, restaurants, and anything else that feels photo worthy. You’d rather end up with too many summer vacation photos for your travel blogging website than not enough.
Don’t stress about investing in an expensive brand new camera. A simple digital camera or whatever camera your phone has will do. You can even go old school and use a disposable camera. Just make sure you have a way to upload these pictures to your travel blogging site.
4. Write Your a Detailed Travel Blog Post and Destination Review on Your Summer Vacation
Some travel bloggers like to include destination reviews all throughout their travel blog posts. Others prefer to do their travel blogging on their overall travel experience and then set aside a separate blog post for a destination review. Do what works for you.
You might find it easier to write up a blog post for each day of your summer vacation to put up on your travel blogging website. Then, your last post can be a destination review. In this post, you can give the trip an overall review and review every hotel, attraction, airline, and restaurant you visited while on your summer vacation.
