When I first entered the world of blogging, I kept my blog just as a personal diary to keep myself sane. I didn’t give the address to anyone so I knew no one was actually reading. Slowly I got drawn to the blogs of other moms who had similar interests or were pursuing similar goals. I commented, they commented, we connected. It became addicting.
Then one day I thought to myself, “There must be some Laitnos out there blogging, right?” The lovely editors of this blog are the first Latinas I actually discovered in my search for a little bit of home. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to discover there blogs; I found myself laughing out loud and feeling all warm and fuzzy with each of their fun stories.
But even though their sites were great, I wanted to find more. I wanted to see what we as a people were doing in social media, how we were connecting, what our opinions were, . As a mom and a blogger (yikes that makes me a mommy blogger!), I always found tons of sites that grouped together mommy bloggers. I found directories for all sorts of blogs – personal finance, cooking, healthy living, crafting – you name it there were central locations to find a gazillion blogs on topic. Zero for Latinos.
This lack of a central place for web savvy Latinos to connect was the push to get this wonderful site launched. Already we’ve met some awesome bloggers thanks to el Tiki Tiki. I want to get to know you and why you’re online. What you’re passionate about and where we can connect.
Motherhood is what drives me to write. It’s a unique and amazing experience that made me take a closer look at my culture. What about you? Leave a comment below and tell us where we can find you – your blog, Twitter, Facebook, Flikr - you name it, we want to check it out. Let us know why you’re online. Then pay it forward and share a favorite Latino blog you love so we and our readers can connect.
