Hi, Nelly! Our compliments on your site and your work in general. We'd also like to note that we have a great contest going on Twitter in which you can win a flight for 2 (to Italy or various other Iberia destinations) just by tweeting. Details/play at ow.ly/bl37s. If you have the chance to let your readers know about it, we'd very much appreciate it. It's running through early June 18.
Welcome to the IFWTWA group on Tripatini. We look forward to your comments. When you have the opportunity, you may want to check out www.ifwtwa.org and see if you fell the International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association would be a good fit for you.
If you ever have any questions, please let me know.
Good afternoon, Nellie, and welcome to Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, we recommend you take a moment to join several other of our many groups which you may find of particular use, such as History/Heritage/Archaeology, Culture Vultures, Museum Mavens, Hotels/Motels, Resorts Corner, Guatemala, our French language/culture club, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your travels, your writing/outlets, and more.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and audience. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!). If you can cover us in any of your outlets, we'd of course be grateful, and if you feel you might want to occasionally blog for us, rates/guidelines are available upon request. Finally, if you have a Facebook or Twitter account, please join our fan page and follow us (see front page info box), and tweet us! We'll be happy to follow you, as well.
Thanks much for joining us; we wish you an outstanding start to 2010, and it goes without saying that we look forward to seeing you online.
