If you can’t work it out for yourself, don’t do it. And definitely don’t pay anyone else to do it for you because if they were any good they’d be too busy to help your bludgin’ arse. No one makes money through travel blogging. If they try to tell you they do and you can too, it’s a scam. Usually an MLM pyramid scheme. The only way to make money on the internet (while simultaneously having the dignity to sleep at night) is to either physically create something that can be sold for profit, or to be so good that you’re genuinely attractive to serious advertisers who understand the difference between real and fake traffic. The third option is to do it because you just wanna do it and fuck every other cunt. The last option is less profitable but beats all the others.
If you are too much of a drongo to follow the first simple rule, read on.
2. Assume everything is a scam, because it is.
Travel bloggers create hundreds of clone accounts to artificially boost their follower count which tricks simple cunts and lazy “growth hackers” into believing the page(s) really are worth following. Once multiple accounts with seemingly tens of thousands of followers have been created, the creator then begins their pitch for what it is they’re really selling: their digital pyramid scheme. Some of these people are genuinely nefarious while others are just brainwashed retards. Don’t become either. If it sounds too good to be true it 100% definitely is.
3. Beware of repost scum.
A reposter is someone who gains a large following without actually contributing anything to the world themselves. I think fashion blogging is about the stupidest thing on the globe, but as long as it’s original content it still beats the shit out of repost pindicks. If you create original content, no matter how shit it is, at least include a watermark so if it gets stolen by a repost shitlicker nothing will happen because no one gives a shit. But do it anyway probably.
4. Post less boring articles.
There are millions of crappy travel blogs out there but somehow they’re all identical. Post about something you saw that you think no one else saw. No one gives a shit about the Taj Mahal. Even when I was there myself it was boring because I’d already seen it a million times.
5. Post less articles.
Not only are most peoples articles boring, they post way too many. Give it a rest ya bloody plonkers, no one give’s a rats.
6. Post less boring pictures.
No one wants to see you in a bikini on the beach. I’ve got pornnhub and redtube for that, and I can only assume women would only be posting pictures in their bikinis in the hopes that blokes will flog off over them. Yes those sort of pictures get lots of likes and probably attract followers, but if you’re fine with that why don’t you just become a stripper and make the big bucks?
The same thing goes for blokes. Put your shirt back on cunt. What do you want, a medal or a chest to pin it on? Go start a stuck-up poofter modelling page if you love yourself so much that you think your face needs to be in every shot. People want to see the landmarks, not your ugly mug.
7. Post less pictures.
Not only are most peoples pictures either banal, self-absorbed, obtuse, jejune, vapid, uninspired and tedious, they post way too many. This leaves it up to the audience to trawl through their hundreds of shitposts to find maybe a couple of good ones.
8. Post more articles.
This speaks for itself.
9. Post more pictures.
So does this.
10. Posts less lists.
Lists are a dead giveaway that you’re lacking creativity and ya got buckley’s chance of making it interesting, let me give ya the drum! If you feel the need to create a list just so you can spit out another shitty article that no ne will read, make sure each item on the list is on a separate page, preferably with an ad in between each one. This way, you can shamelessly whore yourself out for a few pennies from the extra clicks, while simultaneously annoying both your audience AND your advertisers.
