You are here: Home > Mexico Today > GOOOOOOOL!!!


by planetnomad on June 23, 2011

No, this is not an article about soccer or the World Cup, but yes, I do feel like this site has scored a goal! A big one!  Let me tell you why. Recently, I was invited to become a contributing writer for Mexico Today, a part of Marca País – Imagen de México. It’s a project that’s jointly being launched this weekend in Oaxaca, Mexico by the Mexican Board of Tourism and Ogilvy Public Relations.

The purpose of the program is to invite several, key Mexico enthusiasts to “help spark discussion and amplify the great cultural, business, sustainability and others’ stories happening in Mexico.”

As contributing writers we will be charged with providing written content to our blogs, the main site and the various social media outlets which a lot of us currently utilize. Needless to say I am very humbled and honored to have this opportunity to further engage people in a positive dialogue about Mexico, its people and its rich traditions.

Please note that I am being compensated for participation in this project and for attending its launch in Oaxaca. Also note that all posts and written contributions by me will be expressed in an unbiased form with all opinions reflecting my own.

I totally agree, and it’s a well deserved honor. I look forward to meeting you in Oaxaca…

As for the Gooooool!!!! even as a Mexican enthusiast, I’ll admit, when Saturday night comes, I’ll be pulling for the Stars and Stripes to win the Copa de Oro, (Gold Cup). Plus, it should be interesting to be in Oaxaca for the finals, quite cultural those USA vs Mexico matches in recent years…

stay adventurous, Craig

Congratulation Mark,

I started following you on Twitter & on this just a couple of months ago & you really put out some quality work. Appreciate your time in effort in putting out positive news about Mexico.

Thank YOU Eddie for the support here, and on Twitter…I really appreciate it my friend! It goes without saying that Mexico deserves proper, educational, entertaining and informative coverage that’s often not shared with us. I hope you continue to visit the site and stay in touch on Twitter. Again, thanks for your feedback and loyalty! Safe travels!
