First of all, some reader suggestions/posts:
From Eyes on Brazil, I've been meaning to comment about Adam's post, but here's a link so you can read it first: Working with (US) Brazilians: Good or Bad? In this post he talks about his experience working with Brazilians in the US and asks readers for their input - any of you ever work with Brazilians in the US and have some insight? I personally have had good and bad experiences working with and for Brazilians... more on that later, I hope!
This link was from Dani - The El Paso Miracle. I think she got my immigration views right on target because I LOVED this article. It talks about how cities in the US with high immigrant populations are usually safer! Take THAT immigrant haters.
Fun Blogs to Start Following:
Bloggings by Boz - If you're into Latin America, Foreign Policy, and being updated on the former - I HIGHLY recommend this blog.
Furdunço da Doninha - My friend Fabi has just embarked on an adventure to England from Brazil for her masters! The blog is in Portuguese, and her writing is fantastically hysterical!
Eu Dou Pra Idiotas - Also in Portuguese, and great for some laughs. Loosely translated, the blog is called, "I Sleep With Idiots." Very funny and I've been using it as a distraction from my hectic work week.
And now (drumroll please) - Written by Yours Truly!
For those who don't know I work in SEO, I am also my agency's Link Building coordinator and I just had an article published in "Propaganda & Marketing," a large marketing and advertising newspaper here in Brazil. Pretty exciting, huh? In Portuguese, and interesting if you're interested in SEO - Link Building Brasil: Como Otimizar Links.
I've also started writing for a São Paulo city guide made for onlines and mobile called "Unlike" - and it's in English! Basically, most of what you see on the site from now on is likely to be mine. I don't get paid for it, but it's nice to go places and be "the press." :-)
See? I HAVE been busy! haha
beijoosss and updates next week on my trip to visit the família in Minas!
