It’s Friday at LATISM and you know what that means: Time to shine a spotlight at the tweeps out there showing the clueless world how it’s done: Latino style!
Congrats to our BBFs [best bloguer@ friends] @carogonza @tikitiki @AngryLatino and others whose blogs were featured in the latest Blogadera Today as the 8 Most Creative Latino Blog Logos – proving they have both good business savvy and buen gusto – Congrats to all, keep making the blogosphere stylish!
Sweetheart Ana Flores (@laflowers), better known as half of the Spanglishbaby.com duo, was featured in a The Parent Show with Angela Santomero on PBS, talking about How to make bionic bilingual babies [?!?!] What’s next, Ana, a line of Spanglish brain chips? [LOL] See the awesome show clip here.
– Great Show!
Creative dynamo cum artist extraordinaire @MayaEscobar and her AreYouMyOther.com partner Adria will be giving a presentation at the American Popular Culture Conference next week in San Antonio, Texas. We know their playful take on all things artsy and cultural will color the conference Latino – represent, chicas!
WiredLatinos is celebrating its first birthday with a new look, a new logo and a new contest! To kick off the celebrations, they’re holding a Cyber Fiesta on Twitter @6p pacific using Hashtag #WLBDAY – Congrats, pa’ lante documenting Latinos strides in tech… y qué siga la fiesta – WEPA!
Journalist, Media Producer and style maven Karina Flores-Hurley (@washingtoniana) will be featured in this Sunday’s edition of Al Punto (@alpunto) por @Univision, to discuss the role social media played during the recent Peru elections. Break a leg, amiga, LATISM will be watching -and cheering- for you!
Lastly, we were “anonadados” by the sheer amount of Spring babies in our community [surely there are more], so a very special shoutout to our birthday guys and gals this week: @NewLatina‘s 5 year-old daughter, @Coopweb @edconeexion @tonytorero @soylamar and one of my personal idols, “La Doña” of the Chicano civil-rights movement @DoloresHuerta.
Para todos ustedes ~~> Estas son las mañanitas, que cantaba el Rey… Vicente Fernández!
