An Announcement!

This little blog continues to grow thanks to friends, family, fans and loyal readers.

I have so much to share with you all that this blog is no longer big enough to hold everything that my big mouth has to say. So… I’m proud to announce the new Gringation’s Cancun Blog Facebook page! Here, I’ll be sharing little tidbits, posting beautiful photos (and a few not-so-beautiful photos), sharing links on Cancun news and talking about culture.

The new Facebook page will be a great place for fans to get to know me better, and for me to get to know you better!

And to share our love of Cancun and Mexico, of course.

Hope to see you around!

 

Tell Us Why Mexico Is Awesome

As most of you know, I’ve been working as a Community Manager with the Mexico Today iniciative for several months now, sharing my articles right here on my blog.

Today I’m excited to announce that Mexico Today has launched their Social Magazine on their Facebook site, which now has over 15,000 followers!! Seriously, how cool is it that there are so many people out their who share my passion for Mexico?

From here on out I’ll be posting my Mexico Today articles directly on to the Mexico Today Social Magazine. (But don’t worry! You’ll still be able to catch my usual blogging stories on weekend trips, funny quotes from Jorge and cat feces right here, as always! We like to keep it classy.)

The best news is that now even YOU can post your Mexico stories! Just “like” the Mexico Today Facebook page if you haven’t already, and it’s super easy to share your articles and links.

On top of that, by contributing you’re eligible to win a $500 gift card… and let’s be real, I suspect we could all use $500!

The newly launched Mexico Today Social Magazine on Facebook profiles stories and submissions from leading Mexico bloggers and influencers, including the 24 Mexico Today Ambassadors.

This innovative tactic pushes the envelope of what is possible on Facebook, leveraging community participation from fans to produce a dynamic and evolving, socially-curated online publication. The intent is to create a grassroots movement by allowing submissions from those who are interested in Mexico’s culture, the Mexican economy, Mexico’s environment and more.

Help shape the conversation about today’s Mexico. The Magazine accepts not only short links, but also longer blog posts. Submit your content today to enter a chance to win a $500 gift card.

Check it out here to read Mexico stories from other travelers and expats, or to post your own. Either way, it’s the perfect place for daydreaming about your next vacation!

Disclosure:  I am being compensated for my work in creating and managing content as a Community Manager for the Mexico Today Program.  All stories, opinions and passion for all things Mexico shared here are completely my own.

Random Updates

Some of you may have noticed I haven’t been blogging as much the past few weeks. Nothing to worry about! I’ve just been busier than usual at work. Anyway, here are some updates as to what’s going on in my life lately:

-I finally finished reading They Came to Baghdad by Agatha Christie. What a fun spy novel! This is the 2nd Agatha Christie book I’ve read, and I really enjoy them. Mysterious, but light-hearted, with lots of twists and turns! Now I need to find something else to read…

-Jorge and I hung Christmas lights at our house last night! It looks very pretty. I forgot to take pictures because we were in a rush, but hopefully I’ll have them by tomorrow. I don’t think we’ll get a Christmas tree this year because we have no living room furniture… so it seems kinda sad to just have an empty room with a tree. But the lights look incredible!

-Jorge and I have to write a Christmas list to give to my family this week, but we don’t really need anything! We have tons of clothes, lots of stuff to decorate the living room with eventually (even though there’s no furniture yet haha) and more kitchen items than we have room for. We’ll have to get creative, I guess.

-Two of my best friends are getting married this weekend! Not the official wedding yet, but they’re signing papers and having a dinner with friends. I’m very excited 🙂 Congrats, Juan and Viri!

-I won’t be seeing Mario Lopez on Saturday because it’s the same night as my friends’ marriage. Sorry, ladies.

-Ever since we got married, I’ve been having super intense and often violent dreams. Jorge has no dreams. I think I’m stealing his dreams. Can that happen?

-The company I work for blocked Facebook. Sooo I can only use it on weekends. This has hurt my blog stats because normally a lot of my visitors link in from Facebook, but I can only post links on weekends. Not cool. (Other than that, I’m kind of glad to have Facebook out of my life.)
