Fight the Inertia – Building a Personal Travel Writing Brand
Lisa Niver Rajna and George Rajna, founders of We Said Go Travel, host travel storytelling contests for emerging travel writers.
They shared a few minutes with Trover on building a personal travel brand. Here are a few gems from our chat.
You and George have established quite a travel blog together. What advice would you give to someone considering a travel blog of their own?
Lisa: Thank you! We have been fortunate to have so many travelers choose to share their stories with us through our website and contests. My advice for someone considering a travel blog of their own would be to just start. The inertia against beginning is one of the hardest things for most people. There are many choices to be made but you can always refine your site later.
Pick a day of the week and post once a week somewhere. Once you begin, you can figure out the next pieces. As they say, “Every journey begins with one step.”
One great first step would be our travel-writing contests. The “Gratitude” contest begins September 11. It has a free entry and $1,000 USD in cash prizes. All contest entries that meet our requirements will be published on our site.
