  1. Hello Mercedes,

    I’ve been reading your blog, which I found via your Twitter profile. I’ve very much enjoyed reading it and I wanted to get in touch. I hope you don’t mind me contacting you.

    I work for Garnet Education, an ELT publisher in Reading. Though we specialise in EAP, we publish in a wide-variety of areas within ELT (e.g. Primary and Preschool, exam-prep materials, ESAP, Business English etc.). We would like to invite you to write a guest post for our blog (which you can see here: http://www.garneteducation.com/blog/). To date, a lot of the posts have been very product-focused, which is something I’d like to step back from. I feel our followers would really enjoy your writing and the way you integrate images and video into your posts.

    If this is something you would like to pursue, the topic of the post would be up to you. I see you have a keen interest in Business English, so something along those lines would be good. I’d be happy to discuss ideas. You could even recycle a previous blog post of yours if easier. Posts are shared via our social media and newsletter.

    Let me know if you think you might be interested. We’re flexible and would be happy to work around you. I realise you’ve probably got a lot on your plate though (including your own blog!), so don’t worry about saying no!

    All the best,
