Amigos, some great news. The Wise Latina Club was awarded the 2012 Favorite News Blog by Blogs by Latinas, an online directory of more than 2000 blogs world-wide, written by Hispanic women for the second year in a row.
This recognition is about you, the grassroots community that has sprung up, nurtured, and protected what's become our space. The Wise Latina Club continues growing organically, not just the website but the related yet different, vibrant social media communities of the Twitter feed and Facebook page. Proof of this is that I didn't mention the nomination, much less market it because of bad timing: the 2012 Presidential election was quickly, intensely coming to a close leaving no time.
In other words, The Wise Latina Club won because people love what we write about, our perspective, and our community. It's good, it's funny, it's irreverent, it's sharp, it's biting, it's passionate, it's alive, it has a voice because of you, not because of the infusion of corporate dólares (TWLC is still humbly bankrolled by yours truly).
The Wise Latina Club began as nothing more than a dream that I could show how multi-dimensional Hispanic women and combat stereotypes and caricatures. While cuchi cuchi gave way to "I think" or "I believe," thousands of Latinas have found community and a safe space.
This award belongs to you.
