With moving, Mexico, and a residual stomach bug I am a bit off this week and now I’m running behind. While I’ve been emailing with a few bloggers, I have no abroad blog (yet) for this week. Bummer. But like the greeting card says, “When life gives you lemons, stick them in your bra.” I figured I could use this opportunity to get some nominations for future Abroad Blogs of the Week. So here is the deal:
Criteria to be an Abroad Blog of the Week:
- The blogger must either be about to go abroad, currently abroad, or recently returned from abroad
- The blog must predominately be about culture/travel
- Posts should be fairly regular (at least once or twice a week).
- It has to be interesting
Requirements to be an Abroad Blog of the Week:
- Let me ask you 4-6 questions via email
- Send back your responses by the following Monday
- If you want (i.e. this is not a requirement), welcome any new readers from Global from Home the day I post our interview.
If you would like your blog to be an Abroad Blog of the Week or know of another blog you think I should scope out, let me know! You can comment on this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
