Sometimes friends ask me how I manage to travel so much. After all, I work full-time, my husband works part-time, we have two kids in school and a dog to take care of. The truth is that while we travel more than average—there’s a reason I write a travel blog, after all—we’re not gone all the time by any stretch of the imagination. So how do I come up with travel blog post ideas even when we’re at home?
Well, if you’re a travel blogger, I’m 99.99% sure you’ve had that same question. Sure, you likely have a backlog of write-ups from past trips. But when those dry up and you’re still tied to your home base, what do you write about?
Travel blogger friends, I have your back. Below, I put together a list of 61 travel blog post ideas for when you’re not traveling. And I went one step further: I created a handy pdf of all these questions that you can download for free! (Scroll on down to get your free printable of blog post ideas!)
