How to Become a Travel Blogger and Get Paid to Travel

Ever wonder how to become a travel blogger and get paid to travel? If you love to travel, this has probably come across your mind and wondered how to go about doing it.

I know I have. While I didn’t start as a travel blogger and still don’t consider myself as a travel blogger per sé, I have done comped travel and got paid to travel and write about it. You can find some of my writings under the Travel and Lifestyle section of this blog.

However, just like any business and blogging, travel blogging is can be a business and you must treat it as such if you would like for it to be your source of  full-time income eventually. It also takes a little bit of time to take off and you must put in a lot of effort at the beginning. However, the perks can be very rewarding, especially once you start getting paid to travel and write about it.

You heard that you must dispose of it properly but you’re not necessarily sure how.
