Latina blogger launches bilingual e-book detailing “A Simple Start to Blogging with Social Media”

LatinaLista — In 2004, when I created Latina Lista, blogs were the epitome of social media. For the first time, people could share what was happening in their lives, what they thought about politics, give their professional insights, speak out against injustice or just recount what they ate for lunch that day.

A Simple Start to Blogging with Social Media

Back then, I routinely received emails every week asking “How can I do this?” These days, with Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr and Pintarest, the question of how to do it doesn’t come as regularly. Instead, the most common question is “How can I do it all?”

Just thinking about blogging and using social media scares some people away before they even get started. Some think that if they do Facebook and Twitter they don’t need to blog or if they have a blog, they don’t need to do all the other social media outreach.

Well, there’s a different answer for each scenario and that’s why I wrote the bilingual e-book A Simple Start to Blogging with Social Media/Comienza Tu Blog Utilizando Las Redes Sociales.

The more emails I received from readers, the more it became clear that not every person, business or non-profit has a blog; not everyone knows how to write a blog post; or use the basic social media tools like Facebook and Twitter to enhance their blogs — but they want to learn.

Comienza Tu Blog Utilizando Las Redes Sociales

My e-book answers those questions for people still thinking about creating a blog or getting the most out of their current one by using social media along with it.

In my book, I share eight years worth of daily blogging experience. From how to write a blog post and partner with other bloggers to the ethics of blogging and how Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are good in their own ways, I share the lessons I’ve learned that have made Latina Lista one of the most respected blogs on the Internet.

It’s important to remember that it’s never too old or too late to start blogging and learning how social media can get your voice out there into cyberspace — because everyone deserves to be heard!
