And the #travel1k rankings are out for the week of May 9th and oops, down a bit from #26 to #30, but hey that’s a fine level to be at, beats the living daylights out of those three-digit numbers when it lost track of our posts, doesn’t it now?
Indeed, indeed. And for our new blog to check out today, here we are at #18 down from #16, and oooh this is a novelty, it’s the first Chilean travel blogger we’ve stumbled across here: @lavidanomade’s La Vida Nómade!
Hola! Soy Fran, periodista y viajera. Estoy en la blogósfera desde 1997 y hoy tengo varios blogs. Uno de ellos es La Vida Nómade, donde te cuento sobre mis viajes y el mundo.
Además, soy fundadora de ACHILETB, la Asociación de Blogs Chilenos de Viajeros, pioneros en el tema.

Fortunately for us Spanish-challenged speakers, there’s an English button…
… and oh dear, whatever’s translating here is not in top form. We’ve got a jumble of WordPress codes and not much in the way of help at making heads or tails out of it.
Right, let’s get some help from Google Translate:
Hello! I’m Fran, journalist and traveler. I have been in the blogosphere since 1997 and today I have several blogs. One of them is La Vida Nómade, where I tell you about my travels and the world.
In addition, I’m the founder of ACHILETB, the Association of Chilean Traveler Blogs, pioneers in the field.

And … well, we’re going to puzzle our way through this blog, because there’s a category here that translates as “Work on Cruise Ships,” which is in fact an option we’re planning on exploring, but the English page doesn’t show up any of the articles. Pffft.
Technically, BuiltWith tells us it’s the standard WordPress + Jetpack setup, and as always we recommend Dreampress as your best choice for that, free Jetpack Professional and all; a sprinkling of common plugins, and … nope, can’t guess from here how the translation’s being done.
Well, if you speak Spanish, this definitely looks like an interesting blog to check out, South American travel bloggers are very thin on the ground indeed —
— as in, this is the first one we’ve found! —
