For those of you who like to travel, the profession of a travel blogger may sound so tempting. How or not? You will often travel to various tourist destinations and get a benefit from these activities. Hmmm, who refused to travel and get paid?
But, don’t just know the delicious side. For those of you who dream of being a professional travel blogger, you also need to understand some of the things that are inevitable about this job. At least you must be prepared with the following five things. Being a travel blogger is not just about traveling, guys.
1. Required to always update activities while traveling to blogs and social media
One of your main jobs as a travel blogger is to influence the public to be interested in traveling to the place you are visiting, spending the night at the location you are staying at, or trying out the culinary delights that you are trying.
So, under any circumstances, like it or not you have to be ready to always update every traveling activity to your blog and social media accounts. You have to be good at dividing your time and concentration so you can stay focused on doing your work while sharing it with the public in the form of photos and writings.
2. Creating quality content
Not just updating your traveling activities to personal blogs and social media accounts, but you need to make sure the photos and writings you upload are interesting and creative content so that they can make anyone who sees them look good.
Regarding the need for photo content, you must be smart in choosing the type of camera and must be adept at using it. The cooler the photos are and the more interesting the narrative you write, the easier it will be for netizens to notice them as professional travel bloggers.
3. Must be prepared to live a nomadic life
Committing to being a travel blogger means you have to be sure to spend more time outside the home. Job demands will require you to move from one city to another, even between countries.
You must be strong enough to endure longing not to see your parents and relatives for a long time. But in return, you have the opportunity to meet many new people who will be your second family at the destination you are visiting.
4. Be extra in caring for facial and body skin
Travel blogger is a job of exploring new places almost every day. Starting from walking in the hot sun to swimming freely in the open seas. For that, you need to be more concerned with caring for your facial and body skin so that it is always healthy and looks fresh.
No need for expensive skincare. As long as you routinely carry out treatments such as cleaning your face and scrubbing, using moisturizer in the morning and at night, applying sunscreen before doing outdoor activities, and applying lotion to your entire body, facial skin, and body, you will be safe from damage.
5. Maintain nutritional intake so that the body remains fit
As a travel blogger, you may encounter extreme weather and temperature changes while visiting many destinations. Not to mention the long duration of the trip with a pile of work deadlines.
To support these activities, you must always get adequate nutritional intake so that your body doesn’t drop easily. Adequate rest should not be underestimated. If it’s bedtime, use it as best you can to take a break from all kinds of activities.
Well, even though the profession as a travel blogger is a job that many traveling enthusiasts dream about, it doesn’t mean that the job is just traveling and having fun. There are many aspects that you need to prepare before actually jumping into that career.
So, are you still dreaming of becoming a professional travel blogger?
