InsideEcuador: Our New Ecuador Blog for Expats and Travelers

Posted in: Expats Everywhere, Our Travels, Where to Live

What happened to all of our Ecuador blog posts?

Don’t worry. They are still here. 🙂

In fact, they became such a large part of the site – we decided to give them their own home.

All of our Ecuador-related blog posts are now on their own blog: InsideEcuador.

Why We Created a New Ecuador Blog

After almost five years of blogging, we decided to organize our content into two main sections: one about Ecuador (expat and travel content) and another, broader site about expat tips, reviews and stories about life abroad in general.

Here’s what we came up with:

  • InsideEcuador: Complete Guide to Ecuador Travel & Relocation
  • GringosAbroad: Expat hacks, language learning, earning abroad, reviews, & more!

Dena and I will continue to produce all the content – now on both sites. (And we have some exciting developments in the works).

Connect with InsideEcuador

When we divided the content, we also created a new set of social networks for the new content.

Here’s how it all breaks down:

GringosAbroad social networks (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) all remain as such. But the content on those networks is going to change. Instead of just Ecuador, we’ll be covering expat tips, reviews and topics for expats everywhere.

The GringosAbroad newsletter moved to InsideEcuador (because the majority of our content was about Ecuador). We have a brand new email newsletter for the new GringosAbroad.

We created three new social channels for InsideEcuador. Want to stay up-to-date with all the new Ecuador content on InsideEcuador? You can connect with us here:

Email Newsletters

What about my email subscriptions?

If you were subscribed to our site before, you will continue to receive updates from the InsideEcuador list – with just Ecuador content.

If you want to get updates from the new GringosAbroad, you’ll have to subscribe – the content is now separate each with its own newsletter.

What is the New GringosAbroad All About? 

Basically, it is going to be a lifehacker-style site for expats. We’ll cover language, working abroad, product reviews, expat interviews and money saving tips. And we are going to interview other expats and get their best tips, hacks, and stories.

Some examples are:

    I wanted to know what you know about teaching english as a second language. Hopefully by this time next year we will be able to move doen to our condo that we bought in Crucita. I have an associates in early childhood ed. And over 25 years experience teaching primarilyin a preschool setting. How easy would it be for me to get a teaching job either in a school /preschool or give private lessons, or start a preschool of my own. If you have any insight, please comment. My husband is an electrical engineer, but used to be a teacher. He is more of an IT guy. Any insights into work for him would be appreciated also.

    I have two concerns: quality of air, and access to clean water.

    There seems to be zero well drilling services if you buy or build a home outside the city.

    The air is a concern because pesticides make me and my husband very ill. Breathing them into our noses causes
    them to be immediately absorbed into the bloodstream and brain. They are highly fat soluble, and the brain has a very fatty composition. Many people in the U.S. are becoming chronically ill due to the increased sprayiong and the general ubiquitousness of them in every house, yard, store…. it’s even impregated into clothing and sheets before they are sold. So…. are any well drillers? If not, why? Water seems to be a big issue in Ecaudor. Where is the farming being done that uses pesticides? I understand that Ecuador exports more bananas than any other country in the world and they are normally a pesticide heavy crop. Do any of you know how we can solve these issues? We would very much appreciate your knowlege and expertise. Ash and Rich

    In filling out your recent questionnaire I forgot to mention a topic of interest to me — the neighborhoods and districts of Cuenca, defined both politically and culturally, if there are meaningful distinctions. In fact the whole hierarchy of political organization in Ecuador would be interesting to know.

    thx, db
