Guest Posting

33 More Travel Blogs Looking for Guest Posts

This is the third article in an unplanned series on guest posting to other travel websites and blogs.

After the initial 12 Travel Blogs Looking for Guest Posts we received a number of comments from editors behind some well respected blogs that they too would welcome contributions from guest writers.

Rash promises were made and I decided that a follow up article, revealing another 10 Travel Blogs Looking for Guest Posts at GoBackpacking, should add to my own small portfolio of guest writing.

I think we have got enough mileage out of this idea now and so present this final list of travel blogs that we know are looking for, or would welcome, guest posts. Some of these sites we wanted to include before, knowing that they would want guest writers, but weren’t able to find two past examples.

All 55 websites mentioned in these three articles either advertise that they want guest posts or have accepted them in the past but, even where the subject isn’t mentioned, any blog can be politely approached with ideas for a guest post. Most editors will welcome good ideas from established writers or talented noobs.

Any blogs that I have missed are welcome to add their details below in the comments.

yTravelBlog
Caz and Craig have been making a big push recently to attract guest posts to yTravelBlog. We have seen them using Twitter to attract writers and their thoughtful guest travel blogging page, along with setting out what they want and offer, includes guest writing tips.

AvidTripsBlog
A new website that is inviting adventure travellers to get in touch with their stories about the places AvidTrips travels. Bylines, for the most part, are placed at the top of the page and have to compete with AvidTrips’ own links but this is compensated for with real, rare, hard currency.

Past guest posts:

Travel Dudes
Post valuable tips, ideas and advice based on your first hand experience, whether it’s about a country, city, accommodation, museum, food, shopping, nightlife, etc, and the Travel Dudes will promote each tip to around 40,000 travellers via Twitter and Facebook.

Heather on her Travels
Heather helpfully devotes a page to detailing her requirements for guest posts. She welcomes personal experiences, preferably in the world’s more unusual locations.

Past guest posts:

ThePlanetd.com
Dave and Deb share every detail of their adventures around the web, even the embarrassing ones. That they accept guest writing wasn’t obvious until we found, quite by chance, the Giving Back series.

Past guest posts

South East Asia Backpacker
An actual real magazine for backpackers venturing around Southeast Asia that can be picked up for free at over 500 locations around the region or read online. A flick through the magazine reveals that writers can get a mention of their website and Twitter name along with the pleasure of seeing your byline in a publication that you can pick up and touch.

Before You Backpack
A new site, by the HappyTimeBlog People, that looks to be coming along nicely. They have a ‘Write for us’ link prominently displayed on the top navigation and they state that they will pay $5 for guest house and hostel reviews. Currently articles on travel photography, budget or route planning and border crossings are most wanted.

Kumuka Blog
Though their Twitter feed doesn’t make the most interesting reading at the moment, 28 tweets in a row requesting guest submissions leave minimal room for misunderstanding what they currently desire.

The Innocent Abroad
Melissa Stanford provides a contributors page for writers able to write 800 to 2500 word articles on living, moving to, and travelling in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Aussie Travel Advice
An independent travel site for Australians going overseas. Travel stories or tips under 600 words are welcomed.

Lastly, despite having written two articles on the subject, now would perhaps be a good time to mention that we are also interested in well written pieces on living, working and travelling abroad.

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Regards,

    • Shane  says:

      I don’t want to be too mean to you here – I know you are just doing a job for someone that doesn’t want to pay for advertising – but this post was originally written for writers/bloggers that wanted to write real guest posts, not the bullshit variety like you that send the same spammy canned email to everyone.

    • Shane  says:
