I went to TBEX (Travel Blog Exchange) at the weekend in Lloret de Mar – a coastal town in the Costa Brava that’s literally just down the road from me, so how could I not go, right? These ideas ranged from monetisation methods to blog post topics to ways to promote my freelance work. So, partly to help pluck some of the ideas out of my head and whack them out there in the ether, and partly to inspire you guys to get creative when it comes to monetisation, here’s part two to the popular post I wrote recently which covered a selection of ways you can make money blogging whilst you travel.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m sure at some point in my childhood I wanted to be an inventor.
Whilst you might not become a millionaire, you can create a great product that will help solve a problem. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated – the simplest of things are sometimes the best – but as long as it solves a problem you could be onto a money maker.
As a keen traveller you probably know a lot more about booking accommodation, how to find the best restaurants, and how to build a reasonable itinerary better than someone who perhaps doesn’t travel a lot. DJ from Dream Euro Trip commented on the last post in this series and said that he makes 90% of his income from planning other people’s trips to Europe. If you have specialist knowledge on a country or region, then why not use that knowledge to make money and help people out? If you’ve got an eye for design or love carrying out little sketches when you’re exploring – tap into that skill. Likewise, if you’re a good photographer you can utilise this talent and sell your photographs on Etsy or a similar site. If you’re going to sell your services through consultancy you need to be really, really good at something and have the proof to back that up. You see, you can’t just whack up a website and offer some half-hearted service (can you tell this is something I feel passionately about?).
Now the scaremongering is out of the way, let’s talk about how you can make this a viable way to make money blogging.
There are loads of travel bloggers that have branched out into this area recently and they’re providing a range of trips, from food tours and adventure trips to on-the-ground photography workshops and more. Lizzie is a freelance travel and lifestyle writer who's written for big-name brands like National Geographic Traveller, Cheapflights, LateRooms and more. There are definitely a lot of opportunities to make money online but most of them require hard work and discipline. You’d be surprised just how simple and easy it can be to save a significant amount of money on your home expenses.
One of the first things you should look into when you want to improve your household finances is to work on diminishing your debts. You’d be surprised just how much you can save on household costs if everyone just adapts their routine slightly. Switch to energy saving light bulbs and energy efficient appliances to save on your monthly energy bills. If you feel like you’re constantly spending money around the home and never getting anything back, why not de-clutter your house and get some of that money back.

It wasn’t my first TBEX conference (I went to another one in the Costa Brava three years ago), and I’m definitely not a newbie when it comes to blogging, but I arrived back in Igualada with a head full of ideas and no clue where to start. Now, I’m all for nurturing ideas, but there comes a point when too many cooks spoil the broth – anyone else feel like that?
This could be anything from creating a useful app that helps people discover cheap restaurants or creating a real-life item that could potentially be the answer to a helluva lot of prayers. They’ve created an awesome product, Speakeasy scarves, which are essentially pretty scarves perfect for travelling situations, but they also have a hidden pocket for your passport and other valuables.
They take on all the stress of booking travel so their clients can just enjoy the anticipation of getting away for a while. I’m not the most talented artist in the world, but I do enjoy creating mixed media pieces of places which people seem to enjoy (take a look at my Instagram account from some examples). Most travellers love snapping photos as they move around, so what better way to put those snaps into use whilst inspiring others to get out and explore the world? With the ability to promote your services with a professional-looking website, it’s easy to trick people into buying services that they think they need. Whether that’s consulting about travel or life coaching, make it relevant – you want to be known as an authority on it. It’s shying away from pre-packaged, cookie-cutter trips and focusing more on ways you can travel authentically within your preferred travel style. Of course, the possibilities are endless and it all depends on what you’re passionate about and the value that you can offer your audience. After quitting her job in August 2014, she had one month to get her business in order and off the ground. Easier said than done but there are plenty of ways to do it if you’re creative enough! I’ve actually just started looking into planning group vacations for transgender people and their partners and allies, since that seems to be an open niche. But I will do #1 and #2 soon, specially #2 since a lot of my readers already get it from me for free! I'm here to teach creative freelancers how to grow their kick-ass businesses and travel more!
With the cost of living continuing to increase, many people are looking for ways that they can cut their bills and live more comfortably for less. By consolidating all of your unsecured debt, you can benefit from a single monthly payment, lower interest rates and the ability to pay off your debt sooner. Make sure the whole family know to turn off all appliances at the switch when not in use, limit water usage, only have lights on in the room that is being occupied and keeping the air conditioning unit set to a reasonable temperature.


Fittings that reduce water flow are a great way to save on the costs of excess water usage around the home as well. Thanks to the popularity of online shopping and classified sites such as eBay and Gumtree, you can list all of your unwanted stuff and have it gone for good. Stay on top of your monthly expenses, set up budget goals and efficiently manage your money.
Otherwise, the monthly service fee is $7 per month with online only statements ($9 with paper statements).
I think they’re great places for meeting likeminded individuals and for bouncing ideas off one another (and, of course, having a drink, or two, or three).
Someone will find out that you’re feeling your way around in the dark and it won’t be pretty when you’re exposed.
Somehow, she did it (magic, maybe?!), and now she runs Wanderful World, a place for creative freelancers to congregate and learn how to grow their kick-ass businesses and travel more. I do run a prospering freelance writing business and my blog coaching biz is growing too, so I dig consulting, but in the same respect, I want to release on them a bit because they are more time intensive than I would like.
At the moment I make zero money from my blog, I do get approached but the proposals never suit my audience 100% so I turn them down.
I’m just a writer, too, but I’m finding myself regularly branching out into new areas to keep afloat!

However, you’ve shown me some alternative ways which don’t include promoting other companies to make money!
For more information, consult a quality debt help provider such as Australian Debt Reduction to find out how debt consolidation can work for you and your household. Not only can it power your household, it will also take care of heating your water as well. Going solar is an ecologically conscious and energy saving decision which you will benefit from greatly in the long run. So many of my friends use travel agents even just to book flight tickets from Point A to B – it amazes me!
