It’s happened again… a sign from the hosting honchos at Word Press.com that someone over there has their eye on Cachando Chile.

I have just come to realize that I have a thing about accordions. Weird, you say? Cheesy, maybe? Uncool, you think? Sorry, conclude away, but I am here to confess. Truth be told, it took me a long time to realize it, but I have been enamored of the instrument since Carmella Cartino brought hers to show and tell in 4th grade. My parents didn’t take it very seriously that evening when I told them about it. We were neither Italian nor Polish—the two ethnic groups most associated with accordions in our neck of the woods.

Everyone loves a bit of back-patting, and Cachando Chile has been getting its share lately. Gotta admit I love it. So please forgive a bit of shameless horn-tooting: Anne Merritt of the Matador Network (big-time travel blog for those who don’t already know) just included Cachando Chile on her list of
“20 Awesome Expat Blogs.”
Cool News! Cachando Chile just made the WordPress.com “Freshly Pressed” list, which they call: “The best of 365,245 bloggers, 539,495 new posts, 399,976 comments, & 105,828,107 words today on WordPress.com.”
Each day the folks at WordPress.com pore over tons of blogs and pick a handful to single out. Today they set their sites on Cachando Chile!
I’ve got to admit that I’m tickled maroon (don’t care much for pink). Thanks to WordPress and all the Cachando Chile faithfuls!
Some days are like that–you just never know what‘s going to happen!
