How Blogging Has Changed the Way I Travel How Blogging Has Changed the Way I Travel

How Blogging Has Changed the Way I Travel






When I first started drafting this post, the original title was “Has Blogging Ruined Travel For Me"”
I eventually decided against that, though, simply because it’s misleading; it suggests that blogging about my travels has indeed diminished the experience for me in some way. Which isn’t really true. Blogging has not “ruined” travel for me.
But being a travel blogger HAS definitely changed the way in which I travel.
On my very first “big” trip abroad (to New Zealand in 2005), I only had a vague concept of what blogging really was. (Come on, we all had a LiveJournal blog in high school, didn’t we") I had a bulky digital camera that ate through two dozen AA batteries in two weeks. And I wasn’t even on Facebook yet.
It was before the proliferation of smartphones and Instagram and readily-available wifi.
Looking back, it was an entirely different world.
In the intervening ten years, a lot has changed. Technology has evolved by leaps and bounds; things are possible today that I never even imagined on that first big trip back in 2005.
And becoming a travel blogger has definitely had an impact on the way I travel.

I’m almost always connected
This isn’t really a direct result of being a blogger – rather, it’s a combination of being a blogger, a Millennial, and embracing the digital age with reckless abandon. It’s hard to remember back to a time when Facebook and iPhones didn’t exist; when Google wasn’t just a swipe away. (Do you remember going on trips and not texting anyone back home" I do – but it seems like a long, long time ago.)
And, as a blogger, I take things a step further. I don’t just want to be connected because it’s convenient – I actually require it to do my job. When I’m traveling, I’m also usually working. This means posting photos to Facebook and Instagram, showing people behind-the-scenes glimpses on Snapchat, answering emails, and drafting blog posts when I have time.
This all requires being connected as much as humanly possible.
Always looking for a spot to work!
The downside: Well, it’s that I’m always connected. I always have a smartphone, a camera, and usually a laptop with me on my travels. I rely heavily on wifi (gone are the days when I might have booked a hotel room because it was a great deal – now wifi is the number one requirement!), and am admittedly addicted to having instant access to information, entertainment, and more. I’m not saying that I never disconnect (in fact, I recently went on a digital detox trip where I ignored my blog, email, and social media for an entire week!), but it’s definitely rare.
The upside: I get to have a career as a blogger! And, I gotta say, being able to explore the world and make money while doing it is definitely a dream come true for me.
I look at destinations differently
To be fair, I still travel based on m...
