Life etcetera

The purpose of this feature is to tell readers a bit about your life; where you come from, why you moved, the ups, the downs, the language, the locals…and so on. We have a lot of readers that have not yet made a permanent move or are thinking of buying a home here and this feature is intended to give them some insight to help them with their own decisions. Of course we are very happy for you to promote your business at the same time but we do ask that it doesn’t read as a glorified advert – it needs to be a balanced article with brief publicity. Experience has shown us that this is a more positive approach as it keeps the readers interest through to the end and so more likely to remember you and your business. We would be looking for about 1100 – 1300 words plus a few photos. Listed below are some prompting questions to assist you.
