Issue#108: Can You Really Make Money as a Travel Writer?
April 04, 2016
Greetings Fellow Travel Writers and Bloggers!

Seasoned travel writers make it look so easy. Flying around the world, staying in exotic jungle resorts, and strolling along pristine beaches under swaying palm trees.

But is it really that easy? And how exactly do you get paid for living this kind of life?

As a writing coach and mentor for aspiring travel writers, I’m often asked the big question: “Can I really make money as a travel writer?”

Here’s how one aspiring writer phrased it:

“Can you really make money at this? Or is travel writing really for people whose financial security is otherwise assured by trust fund or hefty retirement income and who are going to travel anyway?”

This week’s featured post answers this question and more.

Call-out to Money-Making Bloggers

I'd like to interview successful travel bloggers who have monetized their blogs and are generating an average income of $1,000/month or more. The interviews are for an article I'm writing for  

I’m interested in the different ways you have parlayed your site into an income: pay-per-click ads, affiliate advertising, sponsored ads, sponsored posts, social media destination promotions, e-books, online courses, etc.

The interview questions will be via email and will only take you 10-15 minutes to answer. In return, if your comments are part of the article you'll get exposure to the 1,000+ subscribers to my weekly e-zine and the article will be permanently posted on, along with a link to your blog.

Please email me at if you'd like to participate in this survey.

Please share this e-zine with friends, family or anyone you know who is interested in travel writing. They can get free marketing and travel writing information by signing up for my e-zine at this link:

That's all for this week.

Until next week, you keep pitching.
