Addressing travel blogging, Abdul Hafiz tells, “Travel blogging is a promising niche job. I usually travel two to three times a year in a slow pace process. I can stay for 2 to 3 months in a country and come back twice a year and so on. People believe that being a travel blogger is for everyone. Anyone can create an Instagram account and post random photos from your travel, but a travel blogger employs hundreds of hours on our website, meeting deadlines, and planning content.”
