Travel Blog Link Up List | Where to Find Them and How to Participate?

November 2, 2017

Being a newbie in the blogosphere, one of the issues that I usually face is not having the right amount of traffic on my blog. Often times, I am on the verge of giving up because I feel that despite writing good posts, it can only reach few potential readers. Due to this, I’ve tried reading various articles on how to properly draw attention to every blog post that I write. One of the ways suggested is by participating at blog link ups, as this would not only drive traffic to your site but would also connect you to other bloggers on your chosen niche. 

What is a Blog Link Up?

A blog link up, also known as link parties, is a weekly, monthly or one time event that a blogger or group of bloggers host on their blogs. It is not really a party where you will have food and drinks, but more of a platform where other bloggers can share their awesome posts relevant to the link up theme and engage to other bloggers as well.

Points to Remember when Linking your Blog 

  • Before participating on every blog link up, you have to check and abide by the guidelines set by the hosts which you can see on their website. On the list below, you may click on the names of the hosts and it will automatically bring you to their site.
  • Make sure to add the link up badge on every post that you will share. The short codes for the badge are usually found on the hosts’ website side bar or on their actual link up post.
  • Blog link up is a way to connect to other bloggers on your niche, so once you participated, try to engage. This means that you have to visit the blogs shared by others and try to give an honest comment. If ever you received a comment from others, please make sure to respond.
  • Share the posts that you like on your social media and use the blog link up hashtag.
  • Try to link up early. I’m not sure if it is true, but based on my observation, the earlier you link up, the more engagement you can get.
  • Don’t spam, link only one post per event.
  • Make sure that you put the link on your blog post and not your home page.

Now that you have an idea on what you need to do, here’s the list. I’ve intentionally did this list to keep me aware on the link up schedule, but I thought of doing it on a post instead so other travel bloggers can also benefit from it.
