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!

*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?

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.
First and before I forget: Happy New Year! Hopefully this year is packed with travel for both you and I and is still a tad better than the previous year. I’ve been away a long time, and unfortunately this wasn’t because of the fact that I was traveling. What a pity! But I’ve been busy all the time with my travel blog. For example, I worked out a whole plan to make something of my blog (with tips from the friendly blogger M.). In addition, I was busy with my making my Printables. And I’ll give these for free to you! Want to know how you can download these Printables? And do you want to know what it includes? Read more here!
There are a lot of people giving me compliments because I have a bilingual blog. If you didn’t notice it yet, I’m writing my posts in Dutch AND English. But there are a lot more people asking me how I do it. Does it cost time? How do I actually do it? Is there a plugin for WordPress? Which language is the best if I decide to go bilingual? I will answer each and every question. Because besides my travelblog, my blog is also a blogging blog. Yes, I know. A lot of “blog” in one phrase, but I’ll clear it up in no-time. So you’re playing with the idea of translating your blog? Then keep on reading! I have many to discuss with you!
After being away for weeks, my blog statistics were decreased a bit. Normal, but there were people coming back (thanks to every one of them!). Now I’m back and I’m just so thrilled and excited to get back to work. I do know that statistics are not that incredible important and so on and so on. But I love how it’s growing. Is that bad? No, not at all. Today I have listed my favorite methods to grow your blog traffic. Want to read further? Then go ahead!
sI get this like all the time when I’m leaving for a vacation; cleaning up my camera so that I can make a lot of photos while abroad or traveling. Unfortunately, these photos stay on my MacBook. Shame On Me. Because you can do so many things with it. I worked my brains (and those of my mother and sister) off to find out how you can preserve your good old travel memories. It’s -even if I say so- a very long, and varied list. Want to read further? Then go ahead! And I hope you find some inspiration here.
Blogging is my all time favorite hobby, and some day I want to earn enough money so that I can travel because of my blog. But people don’t give you money just because they like you. First, I’m making my blog better, before I want/make money out of it. Like making beter blogposts, learn more about blogging, travel more, etc. Rome wasn’t built in one day, just like you can’t earn money from day one. Even when some bloggers say that you can (I don’t really believe this). Anyway I dove into my archive and I wrote my popular blogposts on a paper. These posts had a higher number of visitors than any of my other articles and that’s why it seemed fun to make a list of the most popular articles to write these days.
We’ve all been there one time -or more- in our lives. We start something (or try something new), and we immediately feel like “newbies” at the same moment. At least, that’s what I thought when I first started my beauty blog and then this one. They were already a lot of bloggers in this world. So why would anyone follow me? Or like my posts? Well, that wasn’t possible the first months of blogging. But hey, blogging is a learning process. You’ll learn it with failures and victories. These mistakes have I made during my “beginners months”. Want to read further? Go ahead!
Even with some delay on the airport in Stockholm, I found my way back home. So what am I going to do now? Easy question; I’m going to write a lot about my adventures in Stockholm and I’m going to edit a lot. So unfortunately you’re not going to read anything Stockholm-related in this article. Then what are you going to read? My mistakes as a travel blogger. I read a really good blogpost the other day and I was that impressed that I just woke up and thought: hey I need to do something right now. SO it was about the mistakes that almost every blogger makes. Like I said: that impressed and shocked that I didn’t want to make these mistakes ever again. Do I still make these mistakes? Of course I do. But it definitely helped me a lot! Today I’m going to give you my top 5 frequent mistakes that (travel) bloggers (including me) make. Have fun reading! *These mistakes are also made by other bloggers, so if you’re not a travel blogger: you could find your way in this article too.
