Travel writing – Write in the third person

If you are writing travel articles but consider what is best to enable you to get the most opportunity to get your articles published. One of the tips to consider is to write first or third person.

There are several smart and popular travel writers. Some of them are household names. Others are new and inspiring. These people are easy to write in the first person. They say "I did this" or "I did." Their articles are of a high standard.

However, writing in this way can be difficult and especially if you are not confirmed, it may be difficult for readers to connect with you. Frankly, people don't always want to know what you did, what you ate and where you went. Your article is not an autobiography. It's a journey.

People feel better when you speak and write in a third person (unless they know you or know you). So you would say, "continue on Western Avenue" rather than "I continued on Western Avenue" and "try the duck in wine sauce" rather than "I duck in the wine sauce."

You are giving your readers a guide, drawing, and opportunity to build their loose plans and experiences loosely on the facts you can produce. You are not asking them to live a typical day in your itinerary.

Let your readers experience the travel information you have in an objective and factual way. Write in the third person, not the first.
