I love to blog as much as I like to write news. But I think blogging is different, because I feel like its more like a conversation I’m having on different topics. I can be a little more relaxed and have an opinion on issues that are not part of a news report that I am doing. I think if you don’t have a blog now–you should find your passion and write about it.
Here are my blogs:
Wise Latinas Linked is a blog that concentrates on issues pertaining to or about Latinas. I started this blog after the quick success of the group I formed on Facebook in 2009 called Wise Latinas Linked.
The Best Crafters is just a fun blog. It’s nice to have a hobby and mine are everything from knitting to sewing. It’s better than taking up something unhealthy. This blog is for crafters who creative and artistic. I credit this blog for inspiring to become a contestant on the Michael’s craft store competition “Craft Masters.”
SPJ Diversity Blog: I managed the blog for the National SPJ Diversity Committee for more than a year (Sept. 2011-Sept. 2012). I was also the vice chair of the committee and contributed to the blog. We covered issues pertaining to diversity in news coverage and newsrooms.
SPJ Digital Media Blog: I was on this committee for two years (Sept. 2009-Sept. 2011) and blogged on topics about digital media and how to use the tools. I was the vice chair of the committee in Sept. 2010- Sept. 2011. I helped co-author two Digital Media Handbooks. The books were a huge success with more than 19,000 downloads.
