Eye on Spain Newsletter 03 June 2008

Buenos dias 

What a busy few weeks we've had.  Last week we launched our new blog service, whereby anyone can have their own blog on Eye on Spain.  I'm glad to see we've had some early adopters but it would be nice for more people to get blogging.  Find out why..

Please support our new bloggers by reading and commenting on their posts, it will be appreciated and will motivate them to keep blogging!

We've started our own "Official EOS blog" where we'll be posting updates regularly and we're also running a Spain Real Estate News blog with the latest news from the Spanish property world.

This week we've also launched our new maps facility.  Now you can view maps on EOS for any area of Spain.  My favourite feature is this one, which if the photos are enough up to date, "off planners" can see how their development is coming along!

I've got so much to tell you about but don't want to bore you any longer so let's move on with today's articles:
