Part of the fun of traveling is sharing your experiences with those that are back home. Building a travel blog is a great way to show your friends and family what you’re seeing and feeling.
Travelers might have their love of adventure in common, but not all travelers have the same online skill set. Fortunately, starting an online travel blog is easy for all different types of travelers.
For travelers who are extremely comfortable using the Internet, consider TravelPod.
Finding a blog website that is flexible enough to accommodate photo and video updates is key. TravelPod is a website specifically for travel blogging that Lonely Planet, National Geographic Traveler, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and more have featured. What makes TravelPod a great place to start your travel blog?
When you’re traveling, you have a budget. TravelPod is a free service, so you don’t need to factor your blog into your expenses. It also doesn’t enforce an upload limit, so all the beautiful photos and videos you capture are ready to upload when you are.

TravelPod also has a pin feature, so you can pinpoint your exact location and show everyone where you are. Also display the total amount of miles you’ve traveled and map your trip. Since TravelPod doesn’t use any plugins, uploading and blog management can be quicker, regardless of Internet speeds.
Even when your travels are over, TravelPod can preserve your memories. Choose to print your blog as a book, or share it online on social media platforms.
If you think that a blog might be too much to handle while you are on the move, consider adventeer.com, a social travel network.
Even though Adventeer is primarily a social network, you can create a travel blog to share. On Adventeer, connect with different travelers, explore world cultures and even create a personalized map showing the different regions and countries you’ve visited.
Earlier this year Adventeer launched a Facebook app. Through the app, users can update their adventeer.com information without having to leave the Facebook portal.
If you still feel that a blog on TravelPod or a page on adventeer.com isn’t what you’re looking for, you can always turn to more straightforward blogging tools like WordPress and Blogger.
