Welcome to the first episode of the Travel Blog Life podcast, hosted by none other than yours truly! In this episode, I talk with Allison Green from Eternal Arrival and Sofia Adventures all about how to make money online as a travel blogger.
Allison is able to make a full-time income working remotely from Bulgaria, and she shares her tips and trips, including the most important advise she has for up-and-coming-bloggers to make the most of their space online.
Before you listen to the episode, I wanted to take a minute to explain the concept and future of the Travel Blog Life podcast. I would so appreciate any feedback and comments you have after listening at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve been blogging at Girl Gone London for just about 3 years now, but have only, in the past 4-5 months, taken it incredibly seriously and worked to not online make money online as a travel blogger, but build a sustainable future for myself online.
While I do still have a full time job (you can read more on my tips about having a full time job while blogging), I hit Mediavine levels of traffic (25,000 sessions in one month) in August 2018, and I have my own course on pitching to brands as a beginning blogger.
This podcast is my way of sharing my journey to blogging success, as well as giving back to the blogging community by speaking with people who are doing interesting, innovative, and ultimately successful things with their blogs.
This is our space to chat, to hang out, to build up a community of travel bloggers (and bloggers from all niches) and support each other, learn from each other, and ultimately teach each other.
I hope you’ll consider tuning in regularly, and if you are interested in hearing more about future episodes, please make sure to subscribe to the Travel Blog Life e-mail list below.
How to Make Money Online as a Travel Blogger with Allison Green
Allison has a bit of a different story than many bloggers, as she started her blog with an aim of making it a profession from the beginning. Because of this, she comes with an interesting take on the most important parts of blogging and what she’s doing from Day 1 to take her blog to new heights.
In this episode, we talk about:
- Allison’s backstory and why she decided to leave her teaching job
- How Allison’s blogging income breaks down
- The most important way of driving sustained traffic to your travel blog
- Why press trips aren’t always as great as you think
- Tips on making affiliate marketing work for you
- Why you should always value your work and how to gain confidence in doing so
