The Latino Blogosphere

Author:

BlogWorld 2009 had the innovative idea of hosting a multicultural panel.  A clear sign of vision and pulse of the current situation in the U.S.A.  I had the honor to be invited by Jose Villa from Sensis to represent the fastest growing group both online and offline: The Latino(a)s!  During the session, I was often asked about the Latino blogosphere.  What do we blog about? Which language do we use? Where are we? And so forth.  This post is an attempt to answer  these questions.

I’ve been breaking my head to “define” the Latino(a) blogosphere.  However, the best I can tell you is that Latinos and Latinas blog about every possible subject, we write in Spanish, English, and Spanglish and we are literally everywhere! If you want to go deeper, I dare you to just come and see!  You will find here a partial list of the best blogs written by Latino(a)s.  Feel free to pay a visit and connect with the bloggers on Twitter.   You can also find directories of more Latino bloggers listed here: Blogadera, Blogs by Latinas, Latina Bloggers Facebook Group, AARP Segunda Juventud, Twiteros, and Blogged’s List of Latino Bloggers.

    Great way for us to stand and be counted! It has always irked me to hear people comment there are no raza bloggers. Please add- http://blog.estudioray.com/

  • Joe Ortiz

    Surely you can’t have a menu list of Hispanic/Latino bloggers that is void of those who deal with theological topics. When I say “theological” I do not mean blogs that are filled with “right-wing, evangelical fanaticism. Believe it or not, there are Latinos/latinas academics who are students (and teachers) of Theology, who understand the varying world’s religions that have been present since the beginning of time. I host two of those blogs. One is called “The End Times Passover” and the other is called “Our Daily Bread” (Just Goodle them). It would be appreciated to be listed. [Joe Ortiz, a former radio-tv journalist, is the author of “The End Times Passover,” “Why Christians Will Suffer Great Tribulation (Author House),” and “Saved? What Do You Mean Saved?”]
