The Complete Travel Blog Link-up List – 2016

Who doesn’t love a good travel blog link-up? Readers use them as enjoyable armchair travel, as a unique way to discover new blogs and as a golden opportunity to read about far-flung places one might never visit otherwise. Bloggers, on the other hand, love link-ups because they are a good way to record their travel experiences and to get to know others with a common interest. Considering the way commenting creates a bit of community and fellowship, it’s little wonder that some people call them link parties!

List of travel blog link-ups 2016

Blog hops are fun

As co-hosts of #TheWeeklyPostcard link-up every Friday, we have discovered for ourselves how much fun these blog hops can be. We enjoy participating in other travel bloggers’ link-ups ourselves and are thrilled whenever those hosts participate in ours. Unfortunately, one problem that we all face is that they all run at different times and in different time zones, which makes it too easy to forget to participate until it is too late and the link-up has closed.

In an effort to keep all the travel blog link-up parties straight, I began to compile an informal list of all the link-ups I came across. It didn’t matter whether they would welcome all travel-related posts or were just for photo essays; any blog hop related to travel got added to my list. Now that I’ve listed all the active travel link-ups I can find, I’m sharing what I’ve created with you.


  • Just as link-ups are a team effort, so is this page. Mistakes happen and I hope you’ll forgive me for typos or if I’ve missed anything. For additions and corrections, please contact me privately or let me know in the comments.
  • Link parties come and go and so do participants. It is possible that I might have accidentally overlooked a link-up or blog host. (None deliberate, I promise!) I’ll try to keep this page updated. Thanks for your patience.
  • Blogs are listed Sunday-Saturday according to the time the link goes live. When available, participation times are in hotel/military time. You can use this Time Zone Converter to calculate for time zone differences.

I hope you find this helpful. Who knows … Maybe we’ll see each other at the next party!

Effective travel blog link-up strategy

There are more ways to take advantage of link-ups than just tweeting and posting on Facebook.

  • Do you use StumbleUpon? Did you know that your own account will gain more clout with StumbleUpon when you share from a variety of sources?
  • Speaking of which, the more sites you stumble, the easier it will be for StumbleUpon to learn what you like and perfect your own stumble recommendations.
  • Do you pin to Pinterest? Practically every story has photos and many of them are pinnable. Maybe you’ll find new dream destinations to add to your Bucket List board or find a new idea to pin to the board you created for next year’s vacation holiday. Most bloggers have Pinterest accounts you can follow and they will give you more fodder for your own Pinterest boards.
  • Use the Golden Rule to your advantage. Here are 10 tips that will help you participate in blog link-up parties effectively.
