BlogHer and Latinas in Social Media ~ Social Fiesta

I'm going!

One of the best things about blogging is that you make new friends. I have made so many friends online and they are all special. One of my favorite group of friends is the Latinas I have met while blogging. I have met so many and they are all so nice. I have been lucky to meet many of them in real life and now I can meet the rest of them at the BlogHer conference in August.

I am one of the co-hosts of the first ever Latina party at the BlogHer conference. WOO!! I am so excited. We all got together and worked with the BlogHer people to put on a really cool party: Social Fiesta!! The party is hosted by the BlogHer organization and the following Latinas:

Ana Roca Castro – premiersocialmedia.com
Silvia Martinez – mamalatinatips.com
Melanie Edwards – modernmami.com
Carolyn Gonzalez – caroincarolina.blogspot.com and theartofrandomwillynillyness.blogspot.com
Monica Vila – theonlinemom.com
