The Best Budget Travel Blogs

List of the top budget travel blogs on the Internet, based on traffic as well as influence over the subject online. Bloggers have been discussing budget travel tips in detail online for years, and these blogs and websites are where much of the online conversation is centered. Because of the ease of editing and updating blogs quickly as news happens, many of these blogs and websites cover entertainment news and contemporary goings on. However, numerous bloggers have used the format over the years to explore travel news in a more in-depth and nuanced fashion, posting longer pieces and competing with niche magazines and newspapers to provide a diverse collection of original writing and reporting on the subject.

In the early days of blogging, users would traditionally find blogs about cheap travel, frequent flyer miles, travel deals, and related subjects using blog search engines, including Technorati, Icerocket, Google Blog Search, and others. Since the explosion of social media services such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and others, search has become less and less significant as a traffic draw. Now, getting a particular blog post or article to go "viral" on Facebook will have far greater significance than optimizing visibility in search engines. Add in the volume of links submitted to aggregation sites and services like Reddit and StumbleUpon and it's easier than ever to find blogs and blog posts on any imaginable topic, no matter how niche.

These blogs are focused on issues in the budget travel blog community. Be sure to vote for your favorites to move them up the list.
