  1. I would really like to read that article about Latinos/Blogsphere by BlogWorldExpo. Your link doesn't work though. Could you re-link? I'm a Latina blogger. I don't blog necessarily about Latino/a issues, but I have written about representation of Latinos in classic film.

    I love your blog by the way. I've been a secret admirer for a couple of years now. I want to do that 25 books Latinas should read challenge.
