Our blog is written for young travelers by young travelers.
So you want to join our team of travel bloggers?
Our travel blog is read by hundreds of thousands of students every year. It serves as inspiration for travelers wondering where to go next and offers travel hacks and advice on the cheapest places to visit. So, if you can relate to having less than $100 and somehow traveling in a foreign country for a week, or if you have unique tips and tricks that could benefit student travelers like yourself, you’re just the type of person we’re looking for!
We’ve answered some of the questions you might be wondering about in our FAQ below. If you are interested in blogging, fill out the form to the right and we’ll be in touch within the next few days!
How do I become a travel blogger?
Even if you have never blogged before, if you enjoy writing and have travel experiences to share with the world, that’s all that’s required to sign up!
What’s the commitment if I am a travel blogger for StudentUniverse?
We’d love to have you submit articles regularly, but we have no requirements that you have to submit a certain number of blogs each month or year to be a part of our blogging community.
What if I want to blog for StudentUniverse, but I don’t know what to write about?
No problem at all! We have a “wish list” of posts we’d love our bloggers to cover for our readers. If you need some help with a topic, we’d be happy to provide you with some suggestions and see if any of our topics would be a fit for you.
What makes a great travel blog post?
Our blog is written for young travelers, by young travelers. We like to focus on informative and interesting topics (from budget travel to study abroad, backpacking, Spring Break, weekend trips to Summer travel) that are useful to other travelers and tend to be more opinion-based. We love posts that focus on how to see cities for cheap, like: "How to See Edinburgh for Less Than $100," or posts that are humorous, or contain GIFs, like "21 Trials and Tribulations of Air Travel."
What’s the benefit of blogging about my travels?
While this isn’t a paid gig, our blogger with the top traffic each month gets $100. Our bloggers love being able to point to their posts on our travel blog as part of their writing portfolio, and in many cases extend the work that they are doing on their own blogs as well.
