A fellow blogger recently asked me what I thought were the most important things to do in order to build a successful travel blog. I’ll be answering that question later on the week here, but it got me thinking about what is ‘success’ for a travel blog?

I’d like to know from you – other travel bloggers and readers alike – how you do define a successful travel blog?

Personally, I define ‘success’ in several ways.  A successful travel blog connects a wide audience of travelers with interesting stories, pictures, and advice to eventually create a small community of people who love travel. My goal is to have content that other travelers can related to and find useful in their travels. I hope that I occasionally write posts that help even the most seasoned travelers to travel smarter.

It’s a difficult question to answer with many facets, I’m looking forward to your definitions and thoughts in the comments below.
