23. Always respond to your readers.
“When you first start a travel blog, it will just be your friends and family reading it. But as you grow and become more successful, you will start to have total strangers following everything you do. These are the people who can help you turn travel blogging into a full-fledged career, so never forget them. If someone comments on your photo, reply to them! If you get an email wishing you well, say thanks! Don’t ever forget that without your readers and followers, your brand will just be another blip in the vast, oversaturated virtual world of mediocre travel blogs.”
—Jarryd Salem and Alesha Bradford, Nomadasaurus
“This communication makes you real and reliable, and helps you become a trustworthy travel source readers will remember and return to again and again.”
—Alice Nettleingham, Teacake Travels
