I'm Editor-In-Chief of GreenGlobalTravel.com, a new web-based magazine covering Travel Deals, Ecotourism, Eco News, Destination Features and Global Culture. I also run INsite Magazine, a monthly lifestyle publication with 400,000 readers in 4 cities; and freelance for over a dozen airline and hotel magazines (AirTran, American Airlines, American Eagle, Taca, Marriott, Cayman Airways, thai Airways, etc).
I'd love to get on your email list to receive press releases about your destinations as well as announcements for any press trips you have coming up. I can almost always get any travel story I write featured in numerous publications. Would love to work with you!

I think we may have worked togther a while back. Were you formerly a freelance journalist and the same Amanda Jackson I helped with a trip along with fellow freelancer Tony Cohan to one of Sofitel's far east (Thaliand, Vietnam, etc.) hotels? If so, please do contact me! I'd love to reconnect. If not, apologies for the mistaken identity.
I am doing an article for GoNOMAD.com about go-lo.net.
I was curious if you would be interested in answering a few questions regarding the site:
You can fill it out and send it back as a comment on my page or send it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
1. How did you hear about Go-lo.net?
2. What urged you to sign up?
3. What do you hope to get from the site?
4. What do you plan to use the site for?
5. What do you think of the site so far? What features do you enjoy?
Good afternoon, Amanda, and welcome to Go-Lo! It's wonderful 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 the site, you may want to take a few minutes to join several of our many groups which you might find of particular interest, such as Honduras, Travel Marketers/Publicists, and various others covering many topics and most destinations throughout the world.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a blue bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself and/or your company.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, and clients. 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!).
We wish you a great rest of the summer, best of luck in 2009 and beyond, and look forward to hearing more from you... !
