How to Become a Blogging Rockstar

Bess Armstrong, Kristen Bell, House of Lies

Kristen Bell teaches Bess Armstrong how to be a better blogger.

I’m going to pull a Slim Shady here, and point out my weaknesses. Having lived in Sydney, Barcelona and Rio, I might have an understanding of expat life and travel, but I’m still new to the travel blogging community.

I’m a rookie, and I want to pitch with the All-Stars. How better to learn the craft, than by reaching out to the best travel blogs?

Recently, I opened up my social media accounts to the public and connected with thousands of travel bloggers in just weeks. Reportedly, there’s about 1.3 million blogs, as of February 22, 2014 (Technorati). The odds of monetizing on a blog aren’t high.

Although I have yet to determine whether I would like to make blogging a full-time career — journalism, business development, marketing, media and copyright are features of my profession as a freelancer, and skills which are conveniently important to travel blogging. I do it for clients around the world, why not do it for myself? Regardless of what my two-month young blog becomes, it’s that UCLA Bruin inside of me that seeks to make it top-notch.

The listed bloggers didn’t just start a travel blog, but became travel personalities and professionals. The rockstars of travel blogging, and their advice to us wannabes that have the urge to travel the world and inspire others to do it too. A look at how they’ve made it, and the advice they gave TRAVELBREAK.
