Help us exist

Guru'Guay - Help Us ExistIf you’re here, it means you either have a desire to support Guru’Guay or you’ve run out of articles to read elsewhere on the site. Heh.

For those who want to support Guru’Guay – thank you! We will only continue to exist if readers support us. Guru’Guay is free and will always be free. And you’re allowed to leave this page and reject the concept of supporting the site. We still like you.

If you’d like to help us keep doing what we do, there are five great ways:

1) Buy the guidebook

If you buy The Guru’Guay Guide not only will you be getting your paws on essential planning input for your trip to Uruguay but you’re supporting us directly. So thank you! However, just so you know, Amazon takes around 70% of the book price. So if you prefer most of what you pay to reach Guru’Guay, shop strategically – that means, get the paperback from Create Space and the digital version from the Guru’Guay Shop.

If you loved the book, please take five minutes to write us a review  on Amazon and cut and paste it into our page. Reviews are REALLY helpful. Cheers!

2) Support local businesses when you contact my recommended spots

When you contact a hotel/restaurant/winery/language school/etc after you read about them here, please mention us at the time of booking.

It allows service providers to appreciate our reach and see who our readers really are. 

And help us strengthen Uruguayan businesses. We tend to recommend independent businesses who you can help most by booking with them directly (and avoiding mega intermediaries like Booking.com). Where Guru’Guay has agreements you will receive a discount or gift (what the Uruguayans call an “atención”). It’s a win-win.

3) Make a one-time contribution

If Guru’Guay made your planning and/or stay in Uruguay sooo much more fun or we saved you money, you can show us your love.

As a grateful reader you are not only stepping up to the plate but putting something on it – and we are hugely grateful. Click here to make a contribution – thank you! thank you!

4) Subscribe

The best way for a blog to grow a long-lasting readership is with email subscription. Plus it’s easier than remembering to revisit the site over and over or guess exactly when Karen will post a new article. Everyone’s inboxes are overburdened, we know, so we treat our email list tenderly. We only send an email when there’s a new post and almost never for any other reason (and of course we’ll never share your email with anyone). You can subscribe on the right above where it says “Have new posts emailed to you”.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for existing and thanks for helping us exist —

Karen A Higgs aka The URU-Guru 🙂
