Find a domain and a name for your blog!

Find the perfect name for your travel blog

Do you already have an idea of what your blog should be called? When it comes to your blog’s name, there are a few things you should keep in mind so that you can remain flexible in the direction of your blog in the future.

Keep in mind that we like to change. In fact, if you want to start a special travel blog for low budgeters and you are so successful in three years that you are in four or five star hotels instead, then the blog and its original name is no longer for you.

If you want to keep all the theming possibilities open, then it’s a good idea to create your own personal blog. For example “”. You can then rename and change the direction of your blog at any time. However, you should not do this too often, otherwise you will lose credibility in your editorial line.

Choose your domain

However, after a few months, you may want to switch to your own host. You will then have to make some technical modifications.

Register your domain

Once you have decided on a hosting plan on WordPress for example, it is time to choose your domain as well. Ideally, you already know in advance what domain this will be and if it is still available.

The best thing to do is to see if your domain with the extension .fr and .com is available. If not, you can always opt for the .net extension or be a little more creative.

Configure your travel blog

Now you need to properly configure your WordPress installation so that your blog works well and the way you want it to.

Start your travel blog!

Create content for your travel blog

Now you need to create your own logo, develop the design and of course start writing your articles.

The diversity of travel bloggers is just as colorful as the world. Some are looking for low-budget adventure, others prefer packages, cruises or trekking vacations… there is something for everyone! Once you as a blogger have found your niche and therefore a special target group, you can start your next vacation.

A little organization is usually necessary, especially before long trips. Where should you go? Backpack or suitcase? What is the best credit card to use when traveling? What equipment do you need? Many blogs have lists that are supposed to make it easier for readers to choose.

Make money with your travel blog

While you shouldn’t start your travel blog with financial expectations, know that money can be made this way, but it also takes hard work and perseverance. And if you’re not a convincing travel blogger, you won’t succeed either. In the meantime, however, many bloggers are able to make a very good living from their website income and have been able to quit their traditional salaried job in exchange for a full-time blogging job.

As soon as the first content is available, you can market it. Of course, networking with other bloggers in your niche and working with companies later on is also very important.
