Introducing DroppedIn: The Magazine

Something just wasn’t sitting right about our last redesign a few months ago, and I couldn’t figure out what it was. After staring long and hard at the site for the last couple of days, it finally hit me: our intentions and our content had outgrown the blog format. After living here in the Yucatan for about a year and a half, we had written so much that a lot of the stories we think are the most valuable were getting buried, never to be seen again.

I also started to have a few issues about the very notion of a blog, in general. When I think about what I would like to see the site become, it seems like chronologically-ordered, only half-formed mutterings about the day’s minor mishaps isn’t what we’re after. Of course, there will always be a place for that, but we want to also include some vital information for those that may find themselves suddenly expatriated or retired here, and for those that are planning to make the leap into Mexico. It seemed like we needed a way to separate our featured articles from our daily fluff, and I am hoping our new magazine-style format will allow us to do just that.

We also want to open the site up to guest writers and reviewers, introduce more multimedia content, and in short, become the number one (okay, number two) resource for anyone wanting to learn more about life in the Yucatan. We will be continuing to add new features over the next several days, but for now, take a poke around, leave us a comment or two, and we hope you enjoy our new look!
