The best stories are the ones you experience, and sometimes you just can’t help but write them down. Whether or not you want to share these writings on an online blog, here are a couple of tips to help you mold your story into its best possible form:

1. Select a fresh angle.
Having the right angle can set your story apart from the many others that can be found online. With so many people writing about the same places, putting a unique spin on things can help you make your story more compelling and attract more readers. It also helps to plan your trip around your angle to further breathe life into your writing.
2. Use local voices.
Talking to the locals about the place you are visiting can offer you fresh information for your writing. It gives your blog entries a new level of credibility because you are getting information straight from the source.
3. Be concise and specific.
Being too vague and being too descriptive are both writing mistakes you should avoid. You want your writing to stand out, so try to be specific when describing places but, at the same time, let your writing and images (if you have any) tell your story simply instead of being overly verbose.
4. Less is more when it comes to details.
Writers often get carried away when writing and pay attention to every detail. As you jot down your story, edit out the parts that drag your piece down or take attention away from your main points. Make your writing cohesive so that your article will be easier to read.
5. Stay true to your own voice.
Since you’re talking about your own experiences, stick to your voice and don’t try to emulate someone else. If you borrow heavily from others’ writing styles, you risk creating a weaker piece because you won’t have a strong connection with what you’re writing and it will show.
