Up there with other expat blogs

I had some great news on Monday. After just a few months of writing about living in rural Mallorca, my blog has been nominated for the Expat Blog Awards 2012. OK, I know there are loads of really interesting blogs in the running – from expats living all over the globe – but just getting this far feels fantastic.

If you are an expat blogger too, it’s really worth checking out their website. I’m looking forward to reading some of the other nominations when I have a few quiet moments to myself. I’m fascinated by what motivates people to leave their homeland and travel to a (sometimes very) different country to pursue a new life.

The Expat Blog Awards 2012 will be announced late December; in the meantime, check out  http://www.expatsblog.com/blogs/855/living-in-rural-mallorca and then explore what other opportunities their website offers for expat bloggers.

    • Thanks, Roger – very much appreciated. I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog. It’s fun to write and, as you
      know about a finca life, there’s no shortage of material!

  1. Congratulations on the nomination Jan! Well deserved – your blog is brilliant! It’s the next best thing to popping over there to see you! x

  2. the writing is so accurate and descriptive of the lifestyle, I .felt I was holding my breath for the next instalment

  3. Congratulations Jan – well deserved. Your blog is so interesting and entertaining to read – I can’t wait for the next instalment!

  4. Congratulations Jan!
    Really enjoy reading your blog – always informative, always funny and always ‘with a twist’… A bit like reading a book that has been serialised in a daily paper – except that it’s free! Above all, your style of writing ‘paints a picture’ that can be instantly captured by the reader, as if they were also present at each ‘happening’… Brilliant!
