Tomorrow yoga

What with one thing and another, these past couple of months, my efforts to be fit and flexible have gone completely out of the window, and I feel I've lost any of the progress I had made. Well, tomorrow I plan to get back into it and have a yoga class, at Yogam, not far from my house. It looks like a pretty simple little centre, just a room really, but I'm looking forward to exercising again, to the sense of control I remember it giving me over my life and body. I'll let you know how I get on.

Your blog caught my eye, and I think you'd be a good fit for a little part time job. Read on if you're interested!

We're building a Madrid travel guide for the iPhone and other mobile devices, and we need your help!

We are looking for people with discernment, common sense and above all... attitude... to help us populate our new Madrid Brink Guide by becoming Brink Guide Editors. (

The job is not complex... we give you a URL where you log-in to upload short reviews of unique venues or activities with a pic in a user-friendly web form. We pay $5 USD per item uploaded to your PayPal. Some of our freelancers report being able to upload more than 20 entries a day.

We need original photos and a few original words (but not many - the reviews can be very simple - certainly not more than 75 words at the very most. "Best tapas in Lavapies, bar none." would be a perfectly fine entry. - As long as it really is the best burger from that area. Equally good would be, "Pedro tells us his burger is the best 1/3 pounder in town. We concur. Try the salty relish."

We do want special attention to the small shops clinging for life - like the barber shop that\'s been there 78 years, or the shell shop or thrift shop or tattoo shop that is somehow less commercial than the rest. We are also interested in the best clubs, mechanics, biking routes. We want to be a resource for anyone new to town.

What we don't need to be is exhaustive and complete. We want to feature the 30 best bars, the 15 best hotels, not every bar and every hotel. We'll let Frommer's stake out that territory.

Above all we want the Brink Guide to celebrate the margin, to reveal venues and activities that exist just under the surface of things. We want the local perspective of experienced space and time travelers... the judgment of gifted amateurs, rather than the jaded opinions of seasoned professionals. We are not at all interested in the starbuckization of cities, rather we want to see the small, unique businesses and the commerce they produce.

If this interests you please send 3 sample items from Madrid to We need:
1) Name of the Venue or Activity
2) Description
3) Address
4) Phone
5) Email and Web site (if they exist)
6) Photo 500 pixels wide no bigger than 500k.

If we like your samples, we'll pay you for them and hire you to write more!

Hi Babs! Thanks for dropping by, you should definitely pay Madrid a visit - and Barcelona too if you haven't already. Jordan is also a place I'd like to see :-) xx
