Get Interviewed as a Featured Blogger

Each week, we will publish an in-depth, 500-1000 word interview of a selected travel blogger. Each interview will be unique and span a wide range of topics from the nomadic lifestyle to the business of travel blogging. These interviews are free, we're only looking for compelling stories to tell our users. Each interview will feature an SEO-optimized link to your blog so travelers know where they can read more of your work. To apply to be a featured blogger, you'll need:

  • Your name
  • Blog name, URL, and description
  • Current monthly traffic (low traffic does not disqualify you!)
  • 2-3 sentences on why we should interview you as a featured blogger

Guest Post on the TripHappy Blog

Guest posting is a great way to drive traffic to your site and expose our audience to your personal brand. We're always looking for high-quality, interesting content. Here is how guest posting on TripHappy works:

  1. E-mail us your story pitch - Before you start writing, you'll need to have your article idea approved by the TripHappy editorial team. Tell us your idea, your target audience for the article, and how long it would be. We are only looking for unique content, so the post cannot already be published on another site.
  2. Get to work - Your pitch is approved, time to start writing! Blog posts must be a minimum of 500 words and include some form of graphics or media. If this is your first guest post with TripHappy, we'll also ask you for a picture and short bio to feature on your post.
  3. Submit and wait for publishing - Once your article is submitted it will go through a final review process to check for grammar and spelling. Once approved, your post will be queued for publishing. We release posts on a schedule to maximize the exposure for your content, but you can expect it to be published within two weeks of approval.
