Latin Weekly NY features Latino bloggers

The new issue of Latin Weekly NY hits the streets today and features an article on Latino bloggers ("In Latino blogs, gossip prevails").

They interview one of my favorite bloggers - Maegan "La Mala" Ortiz - who launched Vivir Latino two years ago to “represent the life of Latinos who were children of immigrants in New York" from a progressive angle.

They also talk to Jason V. of Latin Gossip who tells reporter Manuel Torrino that he sees the Latino blog market in its infancy and believes that it has a tremendous potential to grow.

Blabbeando is also featured. I echo Megan in saying that we begun our respective blogs because we didn't see maintream coverage of the issues that we cared about. I also encourage other Latinos to start blogging although I warn them that it takes perserverance and dedication to make it work.
