I started Cachando Chile 3 years ago as a place to write about Chile, and it has remained pretty Chile-centric throughout, with just the occasional foray into the great beyond . We’ve explored (and yes, “we” because while I throw out the initial topic, your participation in the discussion comments section is often the best part) travel, the expat experience, holidays and fiestas, social and cultural issues, practical (and not) issues, things we love–and things we don’t. Language is clearly a favorite–and the Glossary of Chilenismos is the all-time top attraction on the blog. And it seems that food not only attracts the hearts of men, but of blog readers as well, because many of the most popular posts are food related–your two favorites of favorites are sánguches (sandwiches) and completos (hot dogs), followed not so far behind by Anthony Bourdain’s Chilean sandwich affair.
There has been much more of course, and I am by no means done with exploring Chile, but I find myself wanting to expand, and this is where you come in.
I’ve been traveling more than ever in the past couple of years–and there are more trips planned for this year. Frequent flyer miles, photos, and great stories are adding up. I’m itching to tell all, but here’s the glitch–where do I do that?
Here, at Cachando Chile? Or should I set up a sister site for everything else?
I have gone back and forth with all the inevitable pro and con weighing–and I’ll spare you the enredo (a great and much-used word that means, basically, a tangled mess) of details–but I would like to know what you think.
Would you do me a favor and just leave a message and let me know?
Should Cachando Chile stay Chile-centric?
Would you like to see a revised version: Cachando Chile…and Beyond that would remain Chile based with side trips to elsewhere?
And while you’re at it… I’d love some feedback on what types of topics you’d like to see more of in the future.
