Welcoming the Contributors



"O Mundo de Mikey" updates!

Starting from now "O Mundo de Mikey" is going to include other contributors! These are going to be contributors from different areas and backgrounds.

The blog has no central theme of discussion so the contributions will be mainly focusing in knowledge and experience sharing - the motto "Let's give a bit back and share our knowledge and experience with the world!".
This will bring different perspectives and ideals into equation, will there be clashes? Possibly, but discussion is essential for learning and it can generate even more questions!

Let's keep an eye on the coming posts...
