Guru'Guay - support usIf 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 continue to exist only 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) Spread the word

A free way to help in a huge way is just to tell your friends about the site and share our articles on social media. And when you visit or contact a business because you found out about them thanks to Guru’Guay, please mention us. It really does help – plus you might receive what the Uruguayans call an “atención”, a discount or gift. What’s not too love about a free glass of wine?? It’s a win-win.

2) 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.

And 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!

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. Google ads have been bringing us a measly 50 dollars each month so we decided to get rid of them once and for all. After all, they are gross/annoying. Our income is currently minimal. As a grateful reader you are not only stepping up to the plate but putting something on it – and we are hugely grateful.

*Various readers have told us how they’ve saved up to 500 dollars on travel fares alone.

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”.

5) Answer a burning question

It’s lonely in a little office in Montevideo sometimes and we could use someone to kick a mental football around with regarding ideas of how to best serve our readers. We’ll post questions periodically and if you fancy answering, that would be just great.

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