I’m completely committed to learning and self development, and that means investing a little money back into my travel blog and training courses from time to time. If you are interested in starting a travel blog, here are my top three online blogging courses that can help you.
Three Amazing online Blogging Courses that Travel Bloggers should Choose
1. Travel Blog Success
When I started travel blogging almost three years ago I could write articles and had a basic grasp of WordPress. But I knew that if I wanted to get serious it just wasn’t enough.
I signed up to Travel Blog Success, an online course that helped me to set up and Blog more professionally. It taught me everything from finding a niche to SEO and Google Analytics skills.
Travel Blog Success has a Facebook support group so that our can connect with other bloggers and ask questions along your journey. A great feature of Travel Blog Success is their opportunity board. I was able to guest blog on some good domains early on, which increased my domain authority and lead to other opportunities.
UPDATE MARCH 2018: Travel Blog Success has now merged with Superstar Blogging with Nomadic Matt.
2. Emma Drew’s – Turn your Dreams into Money
I read a great article about making money online that interviewed Emma, a blogger who focussed on Saving and making money. I ended up guest blogging for her on www.emmadrew.info and keeping in touch with her through Facebook groups.
Almost three years into my blogging journey I felt ready for another course and her Turn Your Dreams into Money course was perfect. It’s great for any type of bloggers, not just travel bloggers, so if you are maybe a lifestyle blogger, parenting blogger or fashion blogger, this will still help you!
It’s not a problem to do more than one blogging course as you learn different things from different people. I had a great deal of new takeaways from Emma’s course including complying with Cookie Law, Trademarking and generating traffic from Pinterest.
Another key thing that I learnt from Emma’s course was how to back up your blog. Of course, I’d be gutted if three years worth of writing completely disappeared. I’m really looking forward to having a ‘coffee and clarity’ session with Emma, which is bookable once you are on the course.
3. Nomadic Matt
Nomadic Matt was one of the early travel bloggers who is now author of several travel guides. As a leading blogger in the industry, I have recently signed up to his course Superstar Blogging. As an added bonus, as well as everything outlined below, you also get bonus tech support – something not offered on any other travel blogging courses.
