BlogExpat wishes you a very Happy New Year!
Once again it is that time of year to look at the accomplishments of the last year and look ahead to sharing more expat stories and experiences in 2013.
BlogExpat offers an extensive directory of blogs from around the world help you connect with topics and people of interest. Find blogs by location, category, or date submitted and vote for your favorite blogs. You can find entries in English, Deutsch, Españo, Français, and Italiano. It is from our directory that we draw our expat interviews, twitter round-up, and articles so register your expat or travel blog now.
Expat Interviews feature the personal stories of some of the best blogs registered in the directory. While each expat's story is unique, we can all learn valuable lessons from each other's experience. Interviews with expats in the UK, Italy, Russia, Kuwait, Texas, Malaysia and more offers a view into their amazing lives. Questions about how they earn a living, myths about their adopted country, and favorite things about being abroad provide an intimate look at expat life. Each of our interviewees also has an expat blog in which you can hear more about life abroad.
With the success of our series of expat interviews, we have just launched Expat Author Interviews! Many of our talented bloggers are also accomplished authors and we are excited to share their stories of the road to writing a book. Expat authors aren't all experts, but they do have a story to tell. Follow along in our new series of interview with stories published each month.
If you want an easy way to catch each of our features, interviews, and expat news follow us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr . You may also register for the monthly newsletter (English and French) for updates about new city guides, expat articles, interviews, services, and more!
Also don't forget to check out our sister site, EasyExpat, which has had a complete overhaul and is easier to navigate than ever. EasyExpat offers more than 50 city guides available online or for free download, articles, forums, network, classifieds, job listings, FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) and all the information you need to be a successful expat.
We also launched Expat-Quotes this year. The site allows users to find companies and professional services for all the steps of your relocation abroad. You can apply for information and free quotes online and make the best decisions for your move. The site also provides expat guides by expat writers. From visas to tourism, from Portugal to South Africa, Expat-Quotes can help answer your needs. Interested in contributing a guest post about your country? Contact our editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Along with news from our site, BlogExpat also seeks to promote and share stories from our expats. So we asked our expats - What are you doing for New Years Eve?
I'm about to spend it Chiang Mai. Watching the lanterns float up into the sky from my window. Fireworks later!
