If you love the idea of quitting the rat race and traveling the world, whilst working as a writer, simply continue reading to discover how to work abroad while writing articles online. After all, life is far too short to be lived in one place!
How to work abroad while writing articles online:
Consider traveling to budget destinations over expensive destinations
One way to stretch your travel budget further is to opt to visit low cost, budget travel destinations such as Mexico, Thailand, and Brazil over more expensive travel destinations such as Switzerland, Canada, and Australia.
As an example accommodation, food, entertainment, and utilities are far cheaper in Thailand, than they are in the US or expensive tourist destinations. So if you’re looking to stretch your travel budget further, whilst working overseas as a writer, it pays to pick your destinations carefully!
Make sure that you have a reliable internet connection throughout your travels
You may want to talk to your internet provider about signing up for a low-cost data plan, whilst you’re traveling. Alternatively, if you plan on sticking around in one country for several weeks, you may want to sign up for a local internet plan.
Alternatively, you may want to write the bulk of your articles, whilst you’re offline and utilize free high-speed Wi-Fi connections to upload your articles or send your articles to overseas clients.
Make sure to set yourself achievable deadlines
Whilst overseas you may be tempted to sleep in and to spend the bulk of your days exploring exotic new destinations, however in order to ensure that you have a steady stream of revenue coming in, it’s a smart idea to set yourself realistic, achievable targets and deadlines. Make sure that your work remains a priority and that you save your adventures for your disposable, free time.
Consider blogging about your travels
Did you know that you can supplement your income by create a niche travel blog, which you can place advertisements on? Every time one of your readers clicks on an ad, which is featured on your blog and makes a purchase, you’ll receive a small commission. While one commission won’t pay for your accommodation whilst you’re overseas, once you’ve set up a successful blog, which receives plenty of traffic, you should start to receive multiple commissions per day. If you’re stuck for ideas to write about, you may want to write a blog about finding activities, restaurants and attractions, which are off the beaten tourist track or you may want to start a food blog, which teaches your followers how to make dishes, from the countries which you visit.
Get into the habit of following a routine While working as a freelance writer should give you plenty of flexibility to make the most out of your time overseas, it’s still worth establishing some semblance of a routine. As an example, you may want to start your day with a 30-minute workout before completing an article or two. Whilst your afternoons may be yours to explore your new surroundings. So if you’re keen to travel the world, whilst working as a freelance writer, it’s certainly possible to turn your dream into a reality.
