How to keep your blog updated while travelling

1. Pre-write and pre-schedule articles before going on a trip
If you want to take a complete break from blogging but in the same time you still want to keep your blog updated for your readers then the best way is to write and schedule a few articles before going on your trip to make sure your visitors are still coming back to your site while you`re away.

2. Use transit time for writing articles
I find flying a great chance for putting together a few articles before my holiday even starts. Makes the time  fly faster and gives me fresh content for the blog. Coaches, trains are also great opportunities for article writing.

3. Pre-plan before your holiday article topics
This ensures that you don`t forget covering anything that you wanted to write about.

4. Reserve time on the day for blogging
If you want to keep blogging while away make sure you reserve specific time of the day for this and don`t plan anything during that time slot. Early mornings right after breakfast is my personal favourite as I`m usually too full to do anything else than sit on the sofa.

5. Remember to take pictures
It`s well known by now that articles with strong photography perform much better than articles with only text. I like to always carry in my bag a small camera as you never know what amazing things you`re about to encounter.

6. Keep a notebook/ travel log of impressions
Take short breaks to write down notes either on your phone or notebook of impressions you get from different places you visit so you make sure when you write you don`t forget anything.

7. Take pictures or write down the names of restaurants
If you`ll be writing tips or guides about certain destinations it`s a good practice to either take a picture with your phone or camera of the name of the restaurant or write it down. I tend to always forget restaurant names so this is a life saver for me.

8. Remember to enjoy
Lastly but not last, remember to actually take breaks to enjoy travelling. Even if you`re on a press trip, constantly thinking about how your site is doing or what you`re gonna write next can be exhausting and means actually missing out on the atmosphere. Remember to take breaks even if it`s just for drinks, dinner, shopping spree to just enjoy being there.

  1. Great post - I'm going to Jamaica on the 1st of December and I'm going to be blogging about my time there - I think I want to take the whole time off to relax so will schedule posts and then write up my Jamaica articles when I'm back! xx

  3. Many great tips! I do a lot of these myself when I travel. I usually always blog while I travel (except for those whirlwind trips where I can barely catch my breath in the middle of it all), but when I was in Albania and Macedonia last week, I left my computer at home. It was such a strange feeling! Instead I did it the old fashioned way by writing in my travel journal. It was really nice not having to drag the computer around! I guess I just need to get myself a smaller one.. :P
