Travel writing styles depend on the creator and the message they want to communicate when creating content for their website and social media platforms. I would consider content writing as an important revenue-producing activity for all creators.
The Travel & Lifestyle content creators that are featured in the video that accompanies this blog exemplify the 7 travel writing tips that I share below.
Let's get started with the first tip, and that is...
# 1 READ
I know, this is the most obvious of them all, yet underrated. Reading teaches us new words, perspectives, styles of communication, and expands our vocabulary.
# 2 SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY
You can do this by sharing your opinion on your travels, trending topics, industry news, and other topics that you write about.
# 3 BE OBSERVANT
Pay attention to the world around you and write down everything that you see, taste, touch, smell, feel, and hear.
# 4 CAPTURE YOUR THOUGHTS
We are not always sitting down with pen and paper when a great idea comes to mind. That is why having a digital and physical journal is the best way to capture your thoughts while on the go.
# 5 INCORPORATE WRITING INTO YOUR WEEKLY ROUTINE
Consciously make writing a part of your weekly routine. Program it onto your calendar as a reoccurring event.
# 6 EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR WRITING VOICE
Be fun, funny, serious, loud, excited, informative, and curious. Just to name a few. Describe moods that express and give voice to your experiences.
# 7 ASK QUESTIONS
Be prepared to do the research and find the answers to your questions. The silver lining after researching is that you end up with a bag of content ideas to write about.
Which writing techniques do you plan to incorporate?
