Welcome to the latest edition of #TravelBlogTips chat review. Last month at the Twitter chat, we discussed choosing blog content. It is one of the most important decisions a blogger makes. Moreover, choosing the right content is often the difference between a successful blog with lots of traffic and one that has no readers.
Blog stats and analytics are essential for any serious blogger. They aid you in tracking your performance. Further, they are necessary as they empower you by allowing you to see what your audience is reading and to gain insights about them. This can help you grow your blog and assist you in creating valuable content. Also, it allows you the opportunity to replicate your success. Further, monitoring your blog performance will enable you to find any performance issues that are affecting your traffic.
Recently the Travel Blog Tips crew held a live chat on “Blogging – the Road Ahead”. Forty-five bloggers attended to discuss what they were doing in lockdown and their vision for the future.

Ultimately it was about sharing inspiration and motivation with other bloggers and ideas on how to safeguard the future of our blogs in these unpredictable times.
Though I have always been the type of person who reads about doomsday prepping, I could not have imagined the unprecedented events that have occurred recently. Not in my lifetime. Following the pandemic declaration on 13th March, I saw fear, shock and confusion. Plus there was grief and despair for the life we all knew.

And as I write this, there have been 3.5 million confirmed cases worldwide of the Covid-19 virus, and 247,000 lives lost. These last six weeks spent in lockdown now seem like the new normal. And the question I most want to know is, “How will we all mentally get through this, and how will we move forward?”
Blog photography is an essential part of blogging, especially for travel blogs. When most bloggers start blogging, they don’t realise there is more to blog photography than shooting and uploading. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes, including researching equipment to use and planning of photo shoots. Then there is post-production including editing, optimising for SEO, placement and organisation of photos.
You’ve been waiting for months, and the big day has finally come. Full of adrenaline you make your way to the airport, have a few celebration drinks and board your plane. But once you arrive at your destination, the adrenaline is gone, and you feel tired and jet-lagged. You can’t believe it. It was the ‘trip of the year’, and you feel drained and irritable! And surprisingly, you are not enjoying your ‘trip of a lifetime’ as much as you thought you should. And you are not a happy traveller!
