Do you want to be a travel writer?
Do you want to travel around the world, enjoying complimentary luxury and pampering at every turn, seeing and doing adventurous things in exotic places? And then commit your awesome experiences to paper and make wads of money doing it?
Yeah, me too.
Don’t get me wrong – I call myself a travel writer, and indeed I make money writing. But I write about more than just travel; I incorporate my personal finance expertise and lifestyle design experience to work in a niche that is less populated and therefore easier to get noticed in. (If you look at my Writing & Publicity page, you’ll see lots of financial publications in there).
If you want to sustain your travels with travel writing, far be it for me to stop you. But be sure to view it as a business, market yourself accordingly, and give yourself time to start generating (decent) income before you rely on it to keep your travels going.
