Hi everyone, We are excited to grow our audience and online presence, we just finished building our new awesome reservation system - head over to our website and let us know your thoughts? @Amy and I appreciate and understand the value of core structure, we want to kick things off as functional and community based as possible so everyone involved can gain from the experience. By earning different badges, you help us gain more online exposure which keeps us motivated to grow the forum with questions and answers pertaining to Finca Bellavista and our off-grid lifestyle. Those that have experienced Finca Bellavista and help us answer questions can gain additional badges which can be used for discounted stays at 'The Fusion Home' and those with questions will hopefully find answers. The idea here is to be a community where we all help each other. As a member of the blog, certain badges are awarded for completing different criterias. We are still experimenting with this and using certain categories to trial this community formula. Once signed up, please be so kind to upload a profile picture and complete a small bio about yourself, we would like to get to know everyone better. If you are a previous volunteer, guests or owner, please let everyone know when you were here or what house you own - we encourage all to respond to any questions you feel you can contribute too and showing more of who you are in the bio will help those asking the questions. In order to gain access to the 'volunteering at FBV' or 'Finca Bellavista' category you will need to have the following badges: Instagram follower (follow us on Instagram ) Facebook follower (follow us on facebook ) Mug shot (upload a profile pic, some are automatically added - easy) Blog supporter (like one of our awesome blogs ) If you've completed the tasks to get the badges but have not received them, please let us know on this thread and comment below. Members who complete 7 out of the 12 current badges will receive a unique discount code for a one time rental at 'The Fusion Home' - currently 10%. Members who complete 9 out of the 12 current badges will receive a unique discount code for a one time rental at 'The Fusion Home' - currently 15%. Members who complete 10 out of the 12 current badges will receive a unique discount code for a one time rental at 'The Fusion Home' - currently 30%. You can use this code personally or share it with friends and family. Please comment below if you completed the criteria and did not receive your code yet! (of course, most of you would only have to call us up and we would have you over as friends 🤣 but for the sake of attempting to grow our online community, please feel free to share this tip with others who may be interested in staying at 'The Fusion Home'.) The code can only be used when booking directly through our website and you can get it from us anytime you want (as long as you have completed the tasks!). Pura Vida!
