Sometimes you can hurt your blog. Not physically, hopefully. Earlier in terms of SEO or visitors or visibility. Or maybe something else. But sometimes you can really do good with your blog. As I have done in recent weeks. I feel less pressure on myself to do something with my blog, the responses come naturally, and so on. Want to know what I did right? Read on!
In the past weeks, I have been sent some nice packets. For example this great and beautiful world map from Wereldkaarten.nl. This company has several world maps in different versions. A worldmap on canvas, wood, aluminum, plexiglass, etc. I chose to have one in a canvas. In addition, the people of Wereldkaarten.nl are also constantly working to double their offer. There are also quilts with the image of a world map and even a wallpaper! Yes, I fell in love with that wallpaper. Want to know if I’ve fallen in love with the canvas world map?
Last weekend, I spontaneously visited Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Good weather, friendly people and a shopping street where you can actually find ‘everything’. Even though Eindhoven has no historic/old town area, it’s definitely worth a visit for its beautiful area where everything is within walking distance of each other. However, I’m not going to talk about how nice it’s in Eindhoven. At least, not in this article. I’m going to talk about the Hampshire Hotel – Crown Eindhoven. A hotel that charmed me with its friendly staff, beautiful rooms and nice breakfast. The hotel has even more to offer. But first, the details.
Yes, I’m still here. It’s been a while, but nothing has changed. At least I think so. There wasn’t one single article since January. Dear God. That is a pity. That’s why I’m getting back in the blog game today. Today I’m sharing with you the myths that exist to become a successful blogger. Because to be honest, I have read many times that you have to be a journalist (-student) to know success. Happy reading!
Book in advance, book off-season, book on a Tuesday, and so on. These are the travel hacks I already told you. But I haven’t told you the best kept travel hacks yet. I guess. Perhaps the travel hacks I’m going to tell you today are common among Travel bloggers, but they are certainly unknown among the people who don’t check their email every second of the day to find great deals. I will tell you these travel hacks, if you don’t know them already. Because I would lie if I told you that these travel hacks didn’t help me get a great holiday. So if you’re curious about this blogpost, then keep on reading!
*No, I’m not a travel blogger with more than 500 000 unique visitors per month. That’s impossible, because I haven’t been blogging for a long time. I’m kind of new in this world of blogging. But I can say that I’m glad with my number of visitors that has increased within two months. Even though statistics aren’t that important for me, I can’t deny that seeing my numbers increasing each day when I log in, in Google Analytics don’t make me happy. So I found it quiet the time that I helped my fellow (travel) bloggers who are starting out. Because helping someone is important, right? Curious about how you make your new (travel) blog grow? Keep on reading then!
Before you give your opinion on this; I love travel blogging. End of discussion. That doesn’t mean that there are no contras. Because hey, which blogger doesn’t faces cons of a blog? What I once read, for example, were the cons of a beauty blogger: they had skin problems because they tested too many products on their skin. That’s a contra, right? Another one is sitting too much behind your desk, writing an article. But anyway, we bloggers are weird. Which contras we all face; we are not just bloggers for nothing. We love our hobby! Now back to my blogpost of today. Do you want to be a travel blogger or are you one (then you’ll recognize yourself in this). Otherwise, read this blogpost before you start your travel blog journey. Why? Because you don’t fall in a big giant hole afterwards.
Clothing, can you even live without it? It’s necessary to keep you warm and it gives you the ability to look decent. Therefore, I simply love fashionable clothing. Clothes which are extremely well for the plane, clothes that are great for hiking for a whole day in Italy and of course clothes for a night out. You can quite understand that without clothes, we’d completely stand nowhere. That’s why I decided to also add a fashion twist to my travel blog: Fashion On The Road. This serie has only one goal: comfortable clothes to travel, and to still look good. Why not, right? Today I discuss my clothing wishlist for when I leave on a trip. This time I made a wishlist of the store Romwe. Ready to read?
According to the people who have tested it, you can’t use more than 30 hashtags in your caption. And what a relief, if I may say it like that. I am absolutely no fan of many many many hashtags. Don’t get me wrong you do have to get found and stuff like that, so that’s no problem. But do you really have to write a whole letter of hashtags in your caption? No hard feelings when you do this, but personally I think that’s over the top. Anyway, every person has their own opinion. I on the other hand like 10 or 15 hashtags. But even this is sometimes too much for other people. So it comes down to making the right choices of choosing hashtags. Here are my favorite, best travelhashtags.
It used to be simple: we all went to Italy and nine chances out of ten it was a trip to a campsite near a big city. Do not get me wrong, camping can be a really difficult task. But we travelled every year to a site where there were bungalows and mobile homes (of course very very nice). At the end, very simple and good. And usually, or let me say at once: my mom always arranged the holidays. Whether we went to Italy, Ireland, Netherlands or to Spain. Of course with our “blessing.” Anyway, now it’s different. Now I’m the person who arranges everything that has to do with travel. Unfortunately, I have made mistakes, and I want to tell you these mistakes, so you know and maybe you can even avoid them.
