I’m sure that most of you have seen the logo above before… at least the multi-colored “México” part. It has been on advertisements encouraging people to explore the many beautiful and varied areas of México. Our daughter even snapped a picture in the NYC subway of an advertisement for Mazatlán, below.
The México Today project is a project of Marca País – Imagen de México, a joint public-private sector initiative to help promote Mexico. There is a website (which is still in beta) for the project at MexicoToday.org. I’ve put a logo in the left menu bar that’ll take you to the México Today website as well.
I am very excited to have been invited to become a contributor to the México Today program. There are 24 ambassadors, and we are getting together in Oaxaca next weekend for the kick-off and to get to know each other. The team is made up of bloggers and travel writers. I was already friends with Kelly of A Canuck in Cancun, Cristina of Mexico Cooks!, and Julie of Midwesterner in Mexico but I look forward to meeting everyone.
The México Today program is about generating positive, interesting, and informative pieces about México and using their website as well as social media (Facebook & Twitter) to share the México we know and love. (Here are Facebook and Twitter links for Mexico Today)
I want to disclose that I am being compensated for writing articles for the project. Not all of my articles will pertain to Mazatlán, but I believe they will be of interest to my readers. When I write something new for the project I’ll link to it here, too.
Over the five years I have been writing this blog I have focused on writing about my life living in México and places we visit with the hope that my first hand experiences would help others decide to explore this lovely country. I hope you’ve visit the México Today sites and check back here often as there will be lots more to read.
