The Travel Blogger Pro
Everyone wants to travel. Many people want to write. Everyone who travels would love to travel for free or at low cost and make money from their travels at the same time.
Enter the travel writer. The travel writer travels, travels well, travels in style and luxury and more often than not, for free. And when the travel writer returns, the travel writer gets checks and paypal deposits based on recounting his or her fabulous experiences on the road.
With today’s Internet options and access anyone can be a travel writer or travel blogger whether they can write or not. Anyone can hang up a shingle, earned or not, and hope that someone reads their work. However, how many of these would-be travel raconteurs know how to reach a large and sophisticated audience beyond that of their Instagram universe? How many know how to reach editors who might want to publish their work and give their names or brands credibility? How many know how to reach companies that can happily assist their travel with sponsored trips? How many know how to attract wide audiences and fans to their work and how to make money from all the trouble?
Travel writing is not an easy metier. It takes time, it takes know-how, it takes experience and it takes help.
TravelBloggerPro offers this help in a variety of fun learning pods, events, one-on-one assistance options, and outlets. We have packaged the process of learning the travel writer and blogger profession into an easy flow of time that will provide all the tricks of the trade, a place to publish and get seen, a community of like-minded writers, and a lot of professional help along the way.

Taught and operated by writers and editors with long-standing professional lives as international travel writers, students will learn from the pros and add their own footprint on this rarefied industry with articles on their own that give their names and brands traction.
Writers will be members of a larger community and have access to that community for all manner of useful information. That community will become part of their network – the network every pro needs to ascend in one’s field.
Tips for Diving into Destination Writing
Many writers start their piece with a strong – but brief – anecdote that introduces the general feeling, tone and point of the trip and story…. something that grabs the reader’s attention and makes them want to read on. Don’t start with the journey to the airport – start with something interesting, not what happened first. [MORE…]

Memorial Day is right around the corner, marking the official start of summer travel for many Americans.
