Ever wanted to try your hand at travel writing? The first thing you need to do is identify what’s motivating you; being published, freedom to travel or free trips? Once you know your motivation the rest falls into place, especially if you listen to the advice of Travel Writing Coach and journalist, Gabi Logan, or read her book, The Six-Figure Travel Writing Roadmap. Or sign up for her webinar series. Or, best, tap into her Dream of Travel Writing database that lists all the gigs available each week. Make no mistake, it’s not easy, nor is blogging and hoping someone will notice you the way to go (tip: Gabi earns more guest posting for others and doesn’t have a blog of her own). Gabi’s advice is for those of us interested in the business side of travel writing, where the single best secret is showing up and doing the work. In this episode, Gabi chats with us about establishing credibility, where to look for the best gigs, pitching, attending conferences and how the best stories may just be around the corner. More importantly, she shares her tips on creative energy, managing your time, and gaining a work/life balance. You can find out more about Gabi and the business of travel writing here and here.
