TwoBackpackers.com has come a long way since it’s inception in June of 2009.  We didn’t succeed on our own, for this was a subject not very familiar to us initially.  We succeeded with the help of several travel bloggers and travel blogging resources, most notably TravelBlogSuccess.com, created by David Lee of GoBackpacking.com.

TwoBackpackers.com has over 14,000 unique visitors per month, 2,100 Facebook fans and exceeds 3,600 followers on Twitter.  Advertisers are now contacting us!

Travel Blog Success

Build a Better Travel BlogI first learned of Travel Blog Success when Dave contacted me and asked if I would contribute to the Video Blogging lesson.  This was a great opportunity for me to share the challenges and benefits associated with video blogging, while also learning from 11 additional lessons of blogging that Aracely and I were in need of.  This was February of 2010 and our blog was in the infantile stages and we still had a tremendous amount to learn regarding making our blog a success, gaining followers and ultimately making money.

Travel Blog Success offers 12 weekly lessons, guest articles and interviews from those that have succeeded in our industry and what many have found extremely valuable, the user forum.

Travel Blog Success helped us achieve our business goals and I feel strongly that it can help you too.

    I tune in regularly to 2 backpackers it’s like a good PBS reality show ! I feel like I have seen sights and met people thar I never would have had a chance to meet myself. I can’t wait til the next video blog comes out! I do have my favorites which are the chicken buses, the tattto visit and the ” night” at the volcano. It has been an amazing journey and I am thrilled for the success. This way I will get to visit new places with my favorite travelling couple. Congratulations.

    Sweet! I thought about buying the Travel Blog Success program a while ago, but didn’t want to spend that much money. Really glad I saw this post-I can definitely do it with 20% off. Just bought it. I’m excited!!! Thanks.

  3. Jason says:

    Emily, I am glad you made the choice and thanks for purchasing it through our website. It was a dilemma for us originally, whether to spend the money or not on blogging resources. I was hesitant, but did make some investments. I feel as though it helped us get to where we wanted to be quicker. And now, as we travel, I don’t have the time to learn much about blogging, so I feel as though we made the right choice to learn early. And its paid off for us today. Best of luck with Maiden Voyage

    I’ve been observing your blog from a distance for a little while - I really think of all the travel blogs I’ve come across, yours has that special something that drives me to come back. I’m not so much of a blogger at this point, but definitely think that investing a little into learning about how to do it is wise.
    If this blog has that special something, and you say that paying a bit to learn it from that site helped get you there - that’s good enough for me!

    I have just about 1 month ’till I leave on my RTW trip - what better time to dig into learning useful skills that’ll help me down the road.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Off to purchase it now~
    See you on the Travel Blog Success forums, I guess. ^_^

    Unless you are using some tool or script to rig your Alexa rank, 7,000 monthly visitors does not nearly equal a 37,000 rank. Maybe you mean 70,000 monthly visitors? But, realistically, you would probably need over 150,000 to truly have that rank.

  9. Carole says:

    Whenever I want interesting info about far away places or a quick escape to an exotic location I check out the latest post at two backpackers! Congratulations on you well deserved success!

  10. Jeff Sullivan says:

    Congratulations on the success of your travel blog. I am struggling with mine, but I am going to follow your blog and hopefully learn how to be more successful!

    • Jason says:

      Glad to have you on board Jeff. It’s a challenge in today’s saturated travel blog market, but it’s always possible with hard work and standout content.

  11. Mo @ Unanchor says:

    Congrats on the success of your blog - its a pity travel blog success is “closed to new members” - it seems like a valuable resource.

    • Jason says:

      Mo, It is temporarily closed while all the material is updated and some site improvements made. As a contributor to Travel Blog Success, I am currently updating the Video Lesson. It will be back up soon. I look forward to seeing you on their forums if you decide to join.

  12. Shahid @ India Tour Packages says:

    according to you what would be the mantra of blog success

    • Jason says:

      There is no mantra and that is the beauty of it. It’s still a business where people are trying to learn what works best for them. But, it’s nice to have a forum of colleagues that can all contribute to new ideas and provide feedback.
