We all love traveling, there’s no surprise there, and while travel provides so many great experiences and memories that we want to share it isn’t always as easy as we would like. If you’re about to head out on an extensive adventure or even a road trip around your state, The Wander Kind has some advice on how you can share your experiences as you travel!
Start Your Own Website
While social media sites can be great, not everybody that you want to share your travel experiences with uses the same one, and it can get a bit tedious uploading the same photos to multiple services each time you want to share – so why not start your own online travel-blog!
Sites like GoDaddy provide some great services that make it easy for you to build your own personalized website and travel-blog with a simple URL that you can share with all of your friends and family to see, no matter what other social services or devices they use.
One of the great advantages of your own website and travel-blog is that you are in complete control over how it looks, what you share, and more importantly, how you share it. If you have special photos that you only want your family members to see then you can easily set aside special pages that only they can view.
When you have your own website and travel-blog, apart from sharing your precious photos and videos for everybody (at your discretion), you can also display your planned itinerary and allow friends and family to make comments and suggestions. Remember, when it comes to travel the best advice comes from people who have been there before, so why not make it easy for them to share their travel tips with you!
A tip I picked up from another traveler was to make some small cards with my own travel-blog URL on them to hand out to the friendly locals that you visit along the way to make it easier for them to stay connected with you and see the photos they’ve been lucky enough to share with you. This came in handy when traveling through areas where people didn’t have immediate access to the internet and could take my card to their local cyber-cafe later on.
When it comes to travel, the more you can do to share your experiences with the world the better, so why not make it easier for the world to see with your very own personalized travel-blog.
