Do you love to blog about your knowledge as a local in Australia? Or have you been travelling to Australia and would like to share your amazing experiences with other members of the community? Blogging in our community is a great way to get your enthusiasm for Australia heard and to help others by sharing information you’ve gained.

How do I get started?

-Sign up to TripTide complete your profile information with a photo and a little bit about you.

-Navigate to Social in the top menu and then blogs click write a blog.
-Add photos to the main body of the text to make it more eye catching and interesting for other members of the community. Also adding a main photo and a heading is great because it grabs people’s attention and lets them understand what the blog will be about.
-Include hash-tags in the box provided with key words that you’ve used, for example if you have spoken about beaches in Melbourne then you would hash-tag #Melbourne and #beach.
-When you have completed that you will be asked to tick the appropriate boxes which your blog fits into, for example adventure, tour, wildlife, Queensland etc.

What is the difference betweeen blogs and articles?

- Are you wondering what the difference is between blogs and articles? Well articles are factual, informative and generally cover broader topics such as travel information, finding work abroad, visas, relocating, money, health, travel documents etc.
-Whereas blogs are more of your personal thoughts about Australia, for example an experience you encountered when on your travels.  
-If you wish to contribute an article topic please send submissions to [email protected]
