I am going to the White House!!

Yes, you read that right. Monday I will be at the White House as part of LATISM's (Latinos in Tech Innovation and Social Media) First Ever Top Blogueras (Bloggers) Retreat.

I was invited to participate because, I guess, I am one of the top Latina bloggers in the U.S. Who knew? Well, I did but I also think I still have a shot at marrying Colin Farrell and one day win the lottery. So you can't always count on what I think.

Who knew when I started my blogs in 2009, they would take me all the way to the White House and to be able to be alongside other great Latina bloggers at this wonderful LATISM event? I have met some of the women attending and they are amazing. It will be great to spend time with them talking, brainstorming and learning how to become better bloggers and how to use our influence in social media for advocacy.

I am very excited. It is an honor to have been selected. And, I also have to thank LATISM for putting on such a great event.
