In addition to slaving away on the upcoming 14th (!) edition of The People’s Guide to Mexico, we have finally made the leap to the 21st century (or thereabouts) with a new website. As you can see, we are now live at thepeoplesguidetomexico.com; our archives can still be plumbed at our old site, peoplesguide.com. Lorena has been burning the proverbial midnight oil and endlessly harassing our tireless and talented Web guru Kelly, who, in addition to giving us a new look, is now helping us iron glitches, perfect visuals, and fix blank links. If you notice anything weird, please tell us! We want the new site to be interactive, so if you have any suggestions or are interested in contributing to our blog, please email us at managingeditor at peoplesguide dot com.
I guess I should introduce myself. I have contributed articles to The PG for awhile now, but this year Carl and Lorena snared me into official duties. If you want to get down to it, this whole appointment reeks of nepotism, as I am linked to The PG via not only recent sweat and tears (helping revise the 14th edition), but also blood. I hope that with only 33 years of Mexico travel and a small gut, I can adequately represent my illustrious dad and People’s Guide co-founder, Steve Rogers. (Though obviously, his shoes are too big for me to fill, either literally or figuratively.) If you have any topics you would like to see addressed on the website, please email me at churpa at peoplesguide dot com.
If you have questions about advertizing, please contact mi esposo Rich Peterson (rich at peoplesguide dot com). Rich also writes for the website; if you encounter bizarre or fascinating Mexico news stories you would like to see discussed in our weekly news round-up, he would love to hear from you. Feel free, of course, to continue corresponding with Carl and Lorena at their old addresses.
Speaking of which, we like getting mail and hope to feature reader content in upcoming posts about safety in Mexico. We would especially like to hear from those of you who are in Mexico or who have made the trip recently. Do you feel safe? Do you have any tips for people interested in driving south? What were the best tacos you ate on your trip and how do we find them?
