Childhood memories are vivid, almost indescribable in their detail, and impossible to forget. A Christmas memory I have is that of a black velvet dress  a family friend gave to me for my seventh Christmas.

Let’s Connect

Submitted by on June 8, 2009 – 1:28 pm6 Comments

Blog from Matt FliesWhen 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.

Looking for some sites  to follow?  Check out the Tiki Tiki blogroll or check us out on Twitter and see who we’re following.
