50 Travel Blog Post Ideas to Destroy Writers Block


It’s 9am on cold a Saturday. I sit in front the dreaded blank computer screen wondering why I even got out of bed. I stare at a bowl full of Cheerios and contemplate one question--what will my next blog post be about?

I don’t know about any of you, but there are times when my writing flows effortlessly and I feel like a genius. And then there are days when I would rather eat cereal and go back to bed. For those difficult days where you start to wonder why you started in the first place, we all need a storage bank of strong ideas. Here is a sweet list of 50 travel blog post ideas.

How To…

Lists

A great way to give people lots of good information without overwhelming them is to create a resource list. People want to know what you know. They want to know where they can find this information on their own. Share with them a list of your ideas.

Destinations

Similar to how-to posts, travel guides are unique in that that typically show readers where to go and what to do in specific places. Assume the reader has never been to or even heard of the travel destination you write about.
  1. 36 Hours In aaaaa
  2. Hiking aaaaa Trail
  3. Biking aaaaa Trail

Personal Stories

One way to really engage readers is to tell a personal travel story. Personal stories add variety to otherwise bland posts. They also allow your audience to get to know the real you. Some of my best posts have come from personal experiences I had while traveling.
  1. Why I love/Hate aaaaa
  2. My First Trip to aaaaa
  3. Why I Will Never Visit aaaaa
  4. My National Park Bucket List
  5. My First Holiday Overseas

Questions

The best way to build a one-dimensional blog is to ignore questions people ask you. This is like throwing a huge dinner party and not even showing up. The best place to look for questions that real people ask about travel online is Quora. Once you find a popular question, build a blog post that answers that question.
  1. Best Time of Year to Travel to Hawaii
  2. You Should Know aaaaa Before Visiting aaaaa
  3. Why aaaaa is a Great Place to Visit
  4. Best Places for Solo Travel
