Travel Writing for Travel Bloggers

Word box describing writing about unique experiences, cultural travel and adventure

Well, hello there! This post, as the title suggests, is about travel writing for travel bloggers.

It includes the slides from my recent presentation at TBU Innsbruck, a conference aimed at, you guessed it, travel bloggers.

Travel Reading

If you’re more into travel reading than writing then don’t bother flicking through the slides.

Instead, why not check out some of my other posts, like Beauty, Brutality & Motherhood – Visiting the Alhambra or Alone in the Wild – Kayaking in Alaska.

Travel Writing

If, on the other hand, you are interested in travel writing then I hope you find these slides useful. They were designed to have me blabbering along as you read them so if, in the comfort of your own computer screen, things don’t make sense then drop me a note in the comments section.

I’ll do my best to help.

Happy travel writing, everyone.

Great presentation, I knew nothing about AdWords, I’m so terrible marketing my site, I even enjoy the little I do, I’m just not aware of the different tools I can use! Perusing AdWords site now :)

    Glad you found it useful :)

Great presentation Abi! The beginning is always a chore for me — I’m swiping some of these tips for sure… :)

    Hehe…That’s what they’re there for! Personally, I quite like the beginning…it’s carrying on to the end that’s the chore!

I’m still sorry I missed out on your workshop, but it was great clicking through your slides just now soaking up some of the tips and hints you have on them. Thanks for sharing! Lea

I’m with Lea, sorry to have missed your presentation – sure you could still have taught an old dog new tricks! ;-)
But the slides were great – anyone new to writing, or even with some experience, could learn a lot from this.

    Cheers, old dog (runs for cover…;) )

Solid tips Abi!

    Abi King September 20, 2011

    Thanks Lola. I wanted to build on your excellent talk rather than cover the same material again. Hopefully that’s how it came across…

      Lola September 20, 2011

      I thought it was fantastic and spot on!

Found this over on the TBU site. Awesome post thank you. Will be incorporating all of these in to our next few posts especially since I have a couple of guest posts lined up and want to hit them out of the ballpark since they are our first. Cheers
