Why I created this feature on Trekeffect
For the past few years, travel blogging has given me the freedom to travel and appease my undying sense of wanderlust. Thanks to my award-winning blog, I’ve funded a ton of my adventures abroad, and even gained some sponsorship deals from an array of brands. Furthermore, I’ve been featured in many travel magazines, newspapers and blogs, like Divine Magazine, Mapping Megan, Australian Times and Crunchbase.
But, travel blogging isn’t as easy and seamless as it looks. From perplexing technologies to driving traffic to your site, there are hundreds of challenges along the way to becoming a great travel blogger. Not to mention, it can be quite frustrating, especially if you don’t see any results from your hard-work.
Trust me, I know the pains of a struggling travel blogger. And, that’s why I’ve created a travel blogging platform that will make things a whole lot easier on your end.
Not only is it pretty easy to use, but it has tons of other perks as well. Plus, you can also use it as photo album, if you’re really not into writing and blogging.

Start creating your photo album/blog
Create a title for your photo album or blog post. For this blog post, let’s name it as “My Hong Kong Adventure”. And this time, I’m going to use Trekeffect stories as my photo album.
Click the content body of your blog (the one with the “type something” text). After clicking it, you’ll have a few options, including adding images, videos and even links.
To add a photo, just click the “insert image” icon (3rd on the right).
You can either drag your image to the post or click it, and find the picture you want to upload on your computer.
Also, the first picture you upload usually becomes your cover photo on Facebook. So, pick the best photo that you’d want to become your post’s cover image.
Clearly, larger pictures will take some time to upload, so just be a little patient about it.
Once uploaded, you can also resize the picture, put an image caption or even link it to a website.
Don’t forget to “Save Draft”
Make sure to save all your work, before anything bad happens, like power interruptions.
Add more pictures or texts
Keep adding texts and images to your post until you’re done.
Link to your Facebook profile or Instagram
If you want to gain more followers on your IG or FB, you can also create a link on your post that would lead to your social media channels. To do this, jus highlight the words you want to link, and click “insert link” (3rd icon from the left)
And don’t forget to publish it!
And, that’s how it’s done on our new blogging platform. Easy, right? If you’ve got questions, just reach out to us via email or Facebook. Adios!
