I am Lily Yuhas, an intern working with John Wilpers, the Director of Global Blog Development at GlobalPost.com, a new company dedicated to creating the very best international news reporting in the world.
We are set to launch in January of 2009 with more than 70 correspondents and 350 bloggers in 53 countries, including Mexico. For more information, go to globalpost.com.
My job is to find the world’s very best bloggers writing (in English) from or about each of those 53 countries, including Mexico.
I have been reading your blog, and I am very impressed. You have a unique perspective on Mexico. Your posts are well-written and informative for the gay community. You are bringing a specific part of Mexico to life in a great way.
Mr. Wilpers and I would like to recommend you to the editorial board of Global News Enterprises for inclusion in our roster of the World’s Best Blogs.
Why is that very good news for you?
Every blogger wants maximum exposure for his or her blog, whether for the increased traffic and subsequent financial benefits, or for the expanded impact of their thoughts, or both. With our international network of newspapers, radio, television and Internet companies, your blog will be exposed to tens of thousands of people around the world.
You will have a link on our Mexico page, and your current post will appear there linking back to your blog for comments and archives. There will also be headlines linking back to your blog for several of your most recent posts.
You will also be promoted in several ways, including being in a promotion rotation on our home and region pages as well as having a personal profile page about you and your blog.
What do you have to do?
Virtually nothing, other than to keep writing great stuff regularly (ideally once a week) and sending us a full Atom RSS feed of your current blog! We will also need a photo of you (or not, if you choose to be anonymous), as well as your own description of the mission of your blog (300-500 words).
Also, I’d appreciate it if you can help us find other Mexico bloggers whom you think are the best in Mexico. I have already approached The Mex Files, Mexico Cooks!, David Lida, Macha Mexico, and Mexico Trucker.
I really like your blog and your clear passion for Mexico. I hope that you will be willing to become part of the most exciting international news project on the Internet today. I look forward to hearing from you.
