Are you an adventurer, an explorer with an itch to travel? Do you have anecdotes, experiences, photos, or advice to share to others with similarly itchy feet?
If you enjoy writing or vlogging, it might be worth pouring your passions out into an adventure blog to share with the world. Share your wanderlust and travel tips on an adventure blog that reflects you.
If you’re a bit of a newbie when it comes to blogging, or are quite simply looking for some tips on how to get started, look no further. Read on to find out how to start your very own adventure blog.
Choose A Name And Niche For Your Adventure Blog
Settle on a name that reflects your personality, as well as the kind of content you’ll be putting out. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Identify what differentiates you from all the other adventure mad bloggers out there.
Distinguish what it is that makes you unique. Don’t place yourself in a box, but think about what age group you want to target. Are you going to focus on any travel specific hobbies, or do you have any interests that cross over with your love of travel?
Are you a foodie, a photographer, a dancer or sports enthusiast? Do you like to make films or vlogs, are you passionate about art or architecture?
Now Pin Down A Name And Slogan
Your domain name needs to capture the essence of your adventure blog. For example, if you find yourself well versed in, and mostly traveling around Europe, perhaps you could go with something that reflects that like Eurotripper or Lens On Europe if you’re into sharing travel photography.
More of a desert safari, warm climate enthusiast? Make that clear in your name: Desert Mirage, Beach Towel Traveller – get creative and brainstorm those names and slogans.
Find Hosting For Your Adventure Blog
Hosting is essentially renting a spot on the internet. Paying for a cozy spot for your adventure blog to exist is paramount. There are lots of different hosting websites out there that offer different levels of support and benefits.
They range from the more expensive, to lower budget hosting websites that are better if you’re starting out. Compare prices and see what works better for you and your budget.
If your adventure blog is more of a hobby or side project, consider investing less in your hosting site, to begin with.
If you’re going into this professionally as something you’re willing to commit to regularly with an organized schedule, and a money-making venture, consider investing more.

Pick A Plan
Each hosting website will offer different plans to cater to different needs. Depending on your goals and aims going in, you need to pick the plan that will work best for you.
There’s no pressure either, as you can always up or downgrade to adjust to your blogging needs accordingly.
Like your domain, your web design needs to reflect the personality of your adventure blog. Great blog design has good social media integration for increased traffic and reader engagement.
Readability is crucial and doesn’t just lie in your content but your web design too. Don’t use a type font or colors that will be too light or awkward to read.
You want eye-catching headers, as well as lots of high-quality images, and if possible, some integrated video links too. Appeal to the visual nature of your readers. Once hooked visually, visitors are more likely to soak in your content.
