I’m just so excited that I can’t wait until Friday to post this!! A little while ago I applied to be one of the writers for The Korea Blog (http://blog.korea.net/). Last week I found out I was selected to be one of the writers and then this morning I received an email with all the details – including the official (and clickable) icon at the top right-hand corner of my blog. It’s going to be so much fun writing even more about everything Korean… I’m just so excited about it that I can’t even think straight!! But it gets even better.
In the letter there was an invitation to the welcoming ceremony being held on March 29th at Cheong Wa Dae – also known as the Blue House. For those of you who don’t know what/where that is, Cheong Wa Dae is the office of the President of Korea (kind of like the White House in the U.S.). Yes, you read that correctly… I was invited to an event that is being held at Cheong Wa Dae. It is such an honour! I just wish I could go but I’m in Toronto.
The letter went on to say that “up to three overseas bloggers” (of which I’m one) will be chosen to participate in a press tour of Korea in the fall. Selection will be based on blog posts, comments and feedback. So I have a new goal – to be one of those chosen for the press tour! Stay tuned for many more posts about all things Korean… and check out The Korea Blog!
