Happy 4th Birthday Expat Women & Blog Shout-Out Competition!

Hi Everyone, Today is ExpatWomen's 4th Birthday online. It is a day that we celebrate all of the wonderful supporters like you in our audience - who send us positive emails, contribute ideas and who help us gain new members by telling your friends to join as well. (More members = more sponsors = more bills paid = we stay online longer!)

So, a huge thank you to you, wherever you are around the world.  We genuinely appreciate your support and we are eternally grateful that you read our newsletters and share our site with your friends.  Thanks to you, now has over 10,000 members worldwide - of 165 nationalities, based in 187 countries!

We also need to say a big thank you to our sponsors.  Despite the odds at times, we have managed to keep our site completely free and still paid all our bills (which is a great achievement for a very niche site). For that, we would like to take a minute to thank our (2011) sponsors: Aetna (Health Insurance); Barclays Wealth International; SIRVA RelocationTrafimar Relocation (Mexico); Clements International (Multi-purpose Insurance); and US Global Mail. If you are in need of any of the services that our sponsors offer, please consider supporting them, as they do us.  Many thanks.


Expat Women Blog Shout-Out Competition:

To celebrate our birthday, we are randomly giving away one US$100 voucher to one lucky blogger who gives us a positive, happy birthday shout-out on their blog - anytime between now and midnight 31 January 2011 (US EST).

To enter is as easy as 1-2-3:

(1) Say good things about our site and wish us a happy birthday for this month;

(2) Remember to include a link in your shout-out back to; and

(3) Please email us your blog URL (in an email entitled something like “Blog Competition”), your name and location, by the deadline above.

Blog shout-outs help us a lot, so thank you very much in advance and good luck!

Potentially useful text for your shout-out: is the largest global website helping women living abroad. The site displays 1,000+ content pages, 1,600+ expat women blogs, 300+ readers' stories, invaluable country resource pages, interviews with successful expat women, loads of motivational articles and an inspirational blog and newsletter.

Congratulations Andrea! You have been doing an excellent job running I know you have touched the lives of so many women around the world- be it their first experience living abroad, a long-term expat woman, a repatriate (like me). You continue to inspire us to love where we are living and enjoy the experience.

Thank you very much Jill. The site would not be where it is today without your fabulous contribution for two years in the beginning (2006, behind the scenes, and 2007, our first year online). My hat off to you as well! Andrea x
