So, you love to write and you want to travel. You think you’d like to start a travel blog, but wait!

How exactly do you start a travel blog?

Writer/blogger Mari Kane will explain how to get your blog together and take it on the road.

The BACTW Communication Director blogs on BCATW.org as well as managing and contributing to numerous blogs, many of which she has built. On one of her blogs, Blogsite Studio, she gives weekly advice on how to blog with WordPress and she has authored two ebooks about blogging on WordPress, Create a WordPress Website in Ten Easy Steps and Escalate Your WordPress Website: Twelve Ways to Take Your Blog to a Higher Level.

On July 8, she'll show travel writers:

• How to choose a niche and domain name

• The blogging ecosystem

• How to create a beautiful design

• What to write for your blog

• The importance of images

• How traffic = monetization

• Why be a joiner

For this Meetup, we’ll assemble at the brand new Big Rock Urban Brewery, at 4th and Alberta St in Vancouver. Street parking is free and it’s close to the Olympic Village Canada Line and the Broadway buses.

Those who arrive by 6:30 will enjoy a tour of the bright, shiny new brewery, housed in an old film studio.

After the meetup, we’ll head downstairs for appies and some of their excellent brews!
