Earning Money While Travelling

There is so much to see on this human-straddled green planet and sometimes trips must be multiple months long to provide you the full experience of a new land. Budgeting a trip to the best of your ability is the smartest way to stretch your money – and time – out, but what happens when budgeting isn’t enough? There are a number of ways to make a little bit of money here and there, legally, while on your travels – thanks to the beauty of the internet.

Advertising in Blogging

Blogging can allow you to share your travel experiences and tips, or discuss whatever topics happen to hold your interest with those around the globe who possess these same interests. However, did you know blogging can also bring you some income? Blogging sites can be set up with payment for subscription to access certain parts of a site or can host pay-per-click advertisements. These provide you a certain amount of money for every time someone clicks on said advertisements – these advertisements can be relevant to your blog – making your audience more apt to click. Another option with ad-hosting is to provide links to those products being advertised for purchase: each time a visitor purchases that product via the blog’s link, a commission percentage is received by the blog’s author.

Personally Selling Photography

If you have a passion for photography, you merely need to market yourself to spread the word. It all comes down to interests: nature, animals, architecture, cars, whatever you fancy. Capturing these bemusements through photography on open sites, or personal blogs or portfolios, will provide your work an internet presence. Open sites that showcase wallpapers,such as nature wallpaper or supercar wallpaper, where anyone can post professional photos within the vein of interest, is an excellent way to find your niche and gain a diverse following. Having an internet presence allows you to reach audiences all over the globe and sell your photography to individuals or companies that desire physical or digital copies.

Freelance Work

There are a number of websites that connect people with skillsets with those looking for those skillsets: writing, virtual assistance, website design, the list goes on. Working freelance does demand a time, effort, and a strong internet connection, so it works best if you aren’t moving around too often. Getting started in freelance can be difficult, but can be a relatively reliable way to fund yourself on your global explorations.

While the Earth, to our comparatively little feet, seems quite vast, the internet has shrunken our planet down to the size of the screens of our laptops and computers, tablets and phones. This has allowed us to connect to anywhere, everywhere, and anyone at the click of mouse. So, while you are galavanting around Europe, you can reach your audiences in Japan, Australia, or the United States via the wonderful world wide web. The internet is your oyster!

Ligo Circle of Appreciation

What a beautiful surprise from Anil dada at http://exxtracts.wordpress.com/  for nominating me for my first appreciation. Thank you, thank you, thank you…

Ligo Circle of Appreciation

About the Ligo Celebration in Latvia from where it origins :

The yearly Līgo celebration happens every summer solstice in Latvia. At this time they adorn their heads with Līgos of flowers, oak leaves, grasses and plants. They  join circles around bonfires and celebrate life, and their  appreciation of each other.

Here’s our Līgo Circle of Appreciation among fellow bloggers.

For duration of 22 days, starting on 1st October 2012, we will be inviting 2 bloggers per day to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation.

PLEASE NOTE: This is an Appreciation, NOT an Award.

To fully participate in the Līgo Circle of Appreciation:~

* Complete this sentence about blogging: ”A great blog is…

* Refer back to the blogger who invited you

* Invite 2 bloggers to join the Līgo Circle of Appreciation on a post”


A great blog is when an author can express his/her feelings and that can entertain or educate its readers at the same time.

Thanks Anil da http://exxtracts.wordpress.com/  for this appreciation. It always feels awesome to receive such recognitions. You made my day…again.
