Blogging refers to the act of creating and publishing content on a blog, which is a website or an online platform that allows individuals or organizations to share their thoughts, ideas, opinions, experiences, and expertise with others in the form of written posts.

Mark Weins a very popular travel blogger states '' One thing I would really urge you to do if you're interested in making money while you travel is to start a blog immediately and it can be about any kind of a subject that you are truly passionate about.''

Affiliate marketing

 This is a type of marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each customer brought about by the affiliate's own marketing efforts.

Affiliates promote a product or service through a unique referral link, and if a customer clicks on that link and makes a purchase, the affiliate earns a commission on the sale.

So one can get affiliate marketing gigs from hotels they have stayed in or travel products and services that they have enjoyed.

Content monetisation

Travel content posted on various social media platforms can be monetised. Platforms such as Youtube enable travel content creators to earn from their videos.

This creates an income stream for the channel owners, thus they can be able to fund their traveling.
