I, Stewart Rogers, am now an official member of the fifth estate in Mexico. I got my press card and id from http://www.yucatantimes.com today. I will be covering and reporting from southern Quintana Roo, and that includes, Chetumal, Mahahual, Bacalar, Xcalak, and anything else related to the Mexican Caribbean.
The Yucatan Times, is a widely circulated newspaper style website out of Merida that reports on news and events in the Yucatan peninsula. I met with them yesterday and today, and I am very impressed with their operation. I was amazed at their circulation, and number of readers. I thought my blog was getting a lot readers. They get more in a day, than I do in a month. And like my blog, they get readers from all over the world. In fact we looked it up, 187 readers from Greenville, South Carolina off of my blog, have visited the website in the last couple of weeks. I was amazed at how they could break down all the numbers and statistics.
So if you have any news or events you would like reported in the Yucatan Times, get in touch with me. I am in Merida now, but I should be returning to Mahahual soon. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can find me on Facebook. Now we want current and poignant news, not somebody stole your cat, or whose husband is seeing who, or there is a pothole on your street.
Since now I am a reporter, I think I am going to change my name from Stewart, to “Scoop” Rogers. I never liked the name Stewart any way. Every TV show with a guy named “Stewart”in it, the guy is a dork, or nerd. Or “Gamecock ” Rogers would be a good pen name.
Here is a photo of my press id, I did not realize how ugly and bald I have gotten lately, now I now why I wear a hat everywhere. I guess that is why she left.
Thanks for reading,
