A Few More Hints and Tips About Contributing to Our Blog

Tip #1: Post Size

Post should be between xxx words and xxxx words. It’s up to you how long your post is and what content you want to include. Make sure that the content is something you think our readers would enjoy reading about for a few minutes or so. It can be educational or humorous or both.

Tip #2: Post Content

Check out previous posts on the website and if it’s been done before or a similar post is already on the site then we are unlikely to accept your post. Sorry! But hey, don’t be disheartened. Simply write about a different topic and send it in to us.

Tip #3: Photos! Photos! Photos!

We love photos! As a professional photographer, Chin always loves to review photos that are submitted. You don’t have to be a professional, either. With today’s technology most people can take a good photo and touch it up. It doesn’t matter if your photo is not perfect. Photos of your travels are what bring your blog alive and capture the readers’ interest and encourage them to keep reading. If you are writing about a generic topic without personal photos please make sure there are no copyright issues with any added photos.

Tip #4: Catchy Title

Try to think of a title that will make our readers want to read your post. Often an easy title is a solution or answer to a popular question. So a title that begins with “How To…” can be a winner. For example, “How To Find Cheap Accommodation” or “How To Stay Safe In The Far East”. Readers always want to hear tips and advice so another popular way to start an post is “Ten Top Tips To …”. The number doesn’t really matter just include as many interesting, useful and original tips you have. As far as posts about a particular place you have traveled to, a title that has a question & answer format will often capture a reader’s interest. An example might be “Whales & Waterfalls: Why You Should Visit Vancouver Island”.

Afghan manTip #5: Be A Journalist

One of the great things about traveling is not just the places but the people. Get talking to the locals and find out what it is like for them living where they do. How they make a living, the local politics, history, their lives and families. We are always interested in fascinating interview style pieces.
