How to become a travel writer? This is a question I asked myself. I answered it by starting an online home business. I write what I want and I writeoff my expenses.

The dream of becoming a travel writer has stayed with many of us a long time.

It's been kept alive through rejections and even zero correspondence from publications where we've submitted ideas and articles on speculation.

How many times have you read an inferior article in your favorite magazine or even your hometown paper and said to yourself, "How did this make it into print? I could have done that article a lot better"?

However, it seems like travel writers and their editors have their own little kingdom...and they don't want to let others in.

I finally got fed up and decided I'd start various websites about places I was interested in, write what I want, and see what happens.

You can become an online travel writer

instead of asking how to become a travel write start your own online travel site Instead of wondering how to become a travel writer, I asked myself if I could either acquire or improve these skills:

* Write coherent Anglo-Saxon words in a sentence.

* Pick places in my area that visitors would enjoy seeing.

* Write about positive experiences.

* Stick to the basics of "who, what, when, where."

* Take decent digital photos and incorporate them in my writing.

* Learn how to create a website.

* Learn how to drive traffic to my sites.

* Learn how to monetize my sites so that I'm constantly earning money.

That list is not too daunting is it? Believe me, I have some decent expressive skills, but nothing lyrical or magic. I have no background in computers or business. Both of my degrees are in Physical Education. I used to be a gym teacher.

The point I'm trying to make is...YOU CAN DO IT! If I can, you can too.

The Internet has leveled the playing field

don't worry about how to become a travel writer

You can make yourself nuts wondering how to become a travel writer and break into print. What I found out was that I could learn how to start an online business instead...and it has made a world of difference.

Having my own legit work from home business as an online travel writer allows me far greater flexibility than writing an article for a specific magazine.

* I write about what I want to, and I slant it how I want to. There is NO editor critiquing me.

* I go where I want, when I want. I'm not being sent to a place that holds no interest for me.

* I take pictures of what I want to. I'm not under the thumb of some photo editor.

* I stay where I want and I write off my expenses. The tax deductions for a home business are far better than any stimulus plan imaginable.

* I monetize my sites how I want. Instead of getting paid for one article webpage will pay me until I die.

The Internet has leveled the playing field for regular people like us. Now, instead of wondering how to become a travel writer, I wonder "What's the next thing I can do to make even more money?"

If I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT. I was fortunate to learn how to establish a travel site about the the Florida beaches through SiteSell/Solo Build It!.

It makes a difference everyday in my wallet.
