Jump-Start Your Portable Career as a Travel Blogger

BangkokWould you like to travel and get paid for it?

How about traveling and getting paid for it without a boss, an editor, or selling?

Are you already sharing anecdotes and snapshots about the places you go on Facebook, Twitter or other social media?

If you answered yes to those questions, you might be a travel blogger. . .

Nomadic Matt. . . Wandering Earl. . . Solo Traveler. . . Everything Everywhere . . . A Little Adrift . . . They’re all successful travel bloggers.

What’s the difference between travel writing and travel blogging? Gary Arndt, author of the blog Everything Everywhere explained it to me.

Right now the travel division of AWAI, a company I’ve done lots of business with, has created a program to walk you through what it takes to start your own travel blog and earn a living from it.

I’ve used several of their programs, and I write for them as well. I haven’t seen Money-Making Travel Blogs: How to Earn $4,000-$5,000 a Month Posting Simple Tips and Travel Updates Online. That’s because it won’t be available until next month.

You can order it now, though.

Special Offer from Future Expat

If the idea of funding your travels through blogging appeals but you’re a little nervous about the whole how-do-I-set-up-the-actual-blog part of it, here’s my special offer to you:

Get more information and order your copy through this link, and I will personally set up a WordPress blog for you. At no charge.

Just email me for details once you’ve reserved your copy of Money-Making Travel Blogs: How to Earn $4,000-$5,000 a Month Posting Simple Tips and Travel Updates Online. I’ll tell you what you need to do next.

Why Am I Making this Offer?

#1. I Want to Help

I’m very supportive of people creating portable careers for themselves. If a portable career in travel blogging interests you, you’ll learn enough from this program to get a good start. The problem is, if you’re like a lot of writers I know, the technical how-do-I-get-this-blog-set-up part of it can drive you a little batty.

That’s one of the reasons I started my new WordPress Building Blocks website.

#2. Helping You Also Helps Me

When you order Money-Making Travel Blogs through my link, I earn a commission on the sale. You pay the exact same amount, but because I introduced it to you, I get a little piece of it.

It’s the same deal over at WordPress Building Blocks when you buy a theme or hosting from one of my links. In fact, that’s the same way you’ll be earning some — or all — of your income as a travel blogger. It’s called affiliate marketing.

I can take the time to set up your WordPress blog without charging you a penny, because I’m getting a commission when you buy the program. The only restriction is that you choose a theme from one of my recommended designers — don’t worry, that will still give you a lot of choices!

It’s a win-win. You get top-notch information about how to get paid for your travels and blog setup for the one price. I earn a commission from your purchase.

Here’s that link for the Money-Making Travel Blogs program again.

    Top Ten Jobs If You Love To Travel

    (10) Flight attendant

    It may be the most obvious travel-related job, but it’s also one of the most accessible: You don’t need a specialized degree to become a flight attendant, and most major airlines only require prior customer service experience and a certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. The hours are frequently erratic, and the work isn’t always easy, but you’ll get a glimpse of hundreds of cities across the globe during your career. A bonus perk? Free or discounted flights for you and your family.

    (9) International aid worker

    If you want to travel for a living while making a real difference in people’s lives, consider working for an international aid organization like USAID. With this job, you can visit struggling countries and help its residents recover from dire situations such as natural disasters and famine. You’ll need a background in a field like health, agriculture or education and a strong interest in social work, according to How Stuff Works.

    (8)Exploration geologist

    Exploration geologists help resource extraction companies identify the most profitable places from which to extract natural resources. Since extraction tends to happen in places that aren’t very well-populated, exploration geologists get to travel to some of the most remote regions of the world, and can be away from home for months at a time.

    (7)Cruise line worker

    Working on a cruise ship is a travel lover’s dream gig: You quite literally make a living traveling the world, all while receiving free food and accommodations. Whether you’re a restaurant server, a shop clerk or a performer in the cruise’s entertainment lineup, there are opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds to work on one of these “floating resorts.” Websites like Cruise Line Jobs list employment openings with some of the top-rated cruise lines.

    (6)Travel tour guide

    Imagine spending your days guiding fellow travel lovers through a bustling European metropolis, or perhaps a small local village is more your speed. Wherever you want to go, popular travel destinations are always in need of friendly, knowledgeable guides to lead tourists through city sights and cultural excursions. Study up on the history and culture of your city of choice, and don’t forget to brush up on the local language!


    Archaeologists travel the world to recover and preserve artifacts from past human cultures. Careers in archaeology require frequent travel, often to remote regions of the earth.

Teaching English in a foreign country is one of the easiest ways to get out and see the world. Many teaching positions in foreign countries do require a certification, but you can easily get one in about a month’s time.

    (3)Executive assistant

    It may not be the most glamorous of jobs, but playing a behind-the-scenes role in the life of a corporate executive or other high-powered professional means you’ll be right alongside your boss on his or her business trips. Since individuals in these positions travel quite frequently for important client meetings, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see new places while you work.

    (2) Oceanographer
    If you love traveling by sea and have a passion for learning more about it, then there is probably no better career for you than that of an oceanographer. Oceanographers often split their time between laboratories and research ships, where they can spend months away from home visiting remote regions of the ocean.
