The Complete Travel Blog Linkup List

What travel lover doesn't love a good story? How about something even better: a collection of travel stories all in one place, also known as a travel blog linkup!

Whether you call them travel blog linkups, blog hops, or linkys, they make for enjoyable armchair travel. Readers enjoy them because they are an easy way for readers to discover new writers and read about far-flung places they might never have otherwise heard of.

Bloggers love them too, because they are a good way to share 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 blogs that offer link ups, link parties, linkys, blog hops.

Blog hops are fun

As one-time co-hosts of #TheWeeklyPostcard linkup, we know how much fun these blog hops can be. We enjoy participating in link-ups ourselves and are thrilled whenever those hosts participate in ours. Unfortunately, one problem that we all face is that blog hops 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 event has already closed!

In an effort to keep all the travel blog link parties straight, I began to compile an informal list of all the linkups 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.

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.

Just as link ups are a team effort, so is this page. Linkups and participants come and go, so if you know of a change, please let us know in the comments.

Here's how to be more effective with your travel blog link up strategy

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

  • Use the Golden Rule to your advantage. Here are 10 tips that will help you participate in blog link up parties effectively.
  • 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? Linkups are a great source for new content for your boards. Hotels, foreign cuisines, dream destinations and Bucket List activities are only a few ideas. Plus, most travel bloggers have Pinterest accounts that you can follow which will give you even more for your own Pinterest boards. Here are three you can start with:

  1. Hello Dan and Linda,
    I just want to say I miss you both. And let you know I enjoy your blogs and the photos.

    Love, your cousin Hope

        1. True, that. I sure do appreciate all the shares it’s getting, too, because it’s going to help every travel blogger who participates in blog hops. And thanks for connecting to #TheWeeklyPostcard through us. I really appreciate it.

    1. So glad you like it. I couldn’t find one either and so that’s why I decided to do it myself.

      Keep us in mind when the weekend comes. We love it when people share on #TheWeeklyPostcard. 🙂

  2. What a great compilation! I always have trouble keeping track of all the time-zones and missing link-ups or end up being like #100 to arrive.. Oh well.. Thank you for listing our little blog hop! 🙂

    1. Hi Rhonda, I was surprised by how many there are as well. Thank you for checking your links and letting me know what needed to be corrected. I really appreciate it. I hope everyone on this list does the same.

  3. Oh, Linda, this is such a great idea! This post will come in very handy for so many bloggers out there. Thank you for writing this post for our travel bloggers community.

    1. I’m glad we’re connected too, Elaine, especially because we’re into health pursuits. Thanks for connecting up to #TheWeeklyPostcard. I appreciate the support.

  4. Thanks for doing this list I often wish someone had done just that. Nancie now has three co-hosts. I’m one (Budget Travel Talk) then there’s Ruth from Tanama Tales and Rachel from Rachel’s Ruminations.

  5. This is such an amazing resource!! I’m bookmarking this page right now! Thanks for the mention, although I’m just a guest-host for Travel Tuesday! Bonnie from A Compass Rose Blog is the main host! [http://bonnieroseblog.co.uk/] and the time zone is GMT.

    I plan to start a new one soon though, so I’ll be in contact!!

    Thanks again! This is so great!

  6. Great list and tips. You’ve introduced me to some new linkups, more to join. Thanks, Linda!
    I never got the hang of Stumble Upon, will have to dig into it a bit more.

  7. What a super idea, thanks for putting this together 🙂
    I’ve been linking up with some of the parties here off and on, but happy to learn of so many more.
    Also, thanks for including the 3 Girls and a #BlogAlong link-up here as well. Looking forward to all the sharing and blog partying in 2016!

  8. Wonderful list. I look forward to checking these out.

    FamiliesGo! and Malaysia Meanders are both part of Weekend Travel Inspiration with Corinne, Rhonda, etc. Would greatly appreciate if if you could add those links!!

    And Bay Essence is no longer part of it.

    Thank you!

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Eileen, and I’m glad you like our list. I’ve added you and Malaysian Meanders, and alphabetized the list as well. I hope we’ll see your stories on #TheWeeklyPostcard too. 🙂

    1. You’re welcome, Priya. Please let us know if anything changes, and of course you are always welcome to join in our own linkup at #TheWeeklyPostcard every Friday. 🙂

    1. Hi Poojaaaaa! You are so very welcome. 🙂 I would be so grateful if you would please let me know if any of the information changes. It would be a massive help.

  10. Linda, thank you!! This list was super helpful!! Linked up with a few awesome people 🙂

    I just wanted to share that I also have a monthly #TravelTuesday Linkup. It takes place the 2nd Tuesday of each month and runs for two weeks.

    I am not sure how often you update, but I just thought I would share in case you felt it was a good fit 🙂

    Thank you and have a wonderful day!!

    1. Hi Melanie, I’m glad you liked our list, and thanks for telling me about your #TravelTuesday Linkup. Of course I’ll add it! I’ve sent you an email.

      I update this whenever I hear about changes, and I hope to do a big update in December to help bloggers as they plan for the upcoming year.

      For anyone who is reading this and wants to add/correct a linkup, just contact us with the same details that I provided for the other linkups. If you have a 250×250 graphic, let us know.

  11. Thank your very much for this list ! I participate already in some memes but there are others which are really interesting to me and I am looking forward to participate !

  12. What a great list! Thank you! I’ve been looking for travel linky parties as I’ve heard a lot about linky parties from mom bloggers. I’m new and a little nervous but am ready to give it a try! Since I blog about traveling with the kid and making it educational I needed to find a niche that matched me…Love the mom bloggers for fun but it doesn’t match my blog niche!

    1. You’re so welcome, Natalie. Link parties are so much fun and easy – I’m sure you’ll get the hang of them quickly. I like them because reading others people’s writing helps me hone my skills. Plus, it’s great when I can leave a comment that adds to the conversation.

  13. I have never heard of a link party and I needed some time before I understood what the list is about (stupid :)) anyways really cool. This will come handy as I am just putting together ideas and collecting the courage to start my first travel blog. Thank you a lot!

    1. You are very welcome, Marusa. We’ve found them super-helpful for getting social media material. The travel blogging community can be really supportive.
