I read a story about a month ago that the tourism board in Australia had a contest to select a blogger to write and manage a blog in order to highlight the islands of the Great Barrier Reef and showcase Australia’s unique island experience to the global market.
“This is a dream job”, the winning contestant said. “I mean, getting paid to blog from an incredibly beautiful area, to snorkel, eat the best food, meet interesting people, do all the fun excursions and blog about them. Who wouldn’t want to do this?”
After reading the story, I immediately posted on my Facebook account, “I should be doing this job, but from Mexico! I could do the same thing, blogging about all of the great things about Mexico!” After this post, I got so many encouraging responses, like ‘You can do it!’, ‘Go for it’, etc. After thinking about it for a while, I realized… why don’t I just DO IT? I want to highlight the positives about the beautiful country and show people that they can go to Mexico and be safe, be healthy and have a fantastic experience. So on this day, June 22, 2009, The MEXICO Report was born.
