{LATISM'12} #latism#LATISM'12

I couldn't wait to post this and finally give you some more awesome news coming to this Blog.... this Momma is going to her FIRST ever, BLOGGER CONFERENCE

Yes. It will be here in Houston and the opportunity is more than amazing.

As a Mexican-American female I believe in empowerment and growth. When I became a Blogger in 2008, I didn't realize the kind of community that it was. I was simply doing it to practice my writing and alleviate some boredom at work. Once I had children and realized how important media, social networks and the use of written {typed} words to encourage, build and learn were to Stay@HomeMommas; I knew that I wanted to do more than just be a Bloggy-Momma. I wanted to one day make a real difference in my community and among my Momma peers. 

I know that I have stated this before. I graduated from the University of Houston in 2005 {GO COOGS!} and expected MORE. The truth, que los dichos son nunca acaba de aprender. After a formal education comes the education of life and with that comes effort. An effort to be, to change and to MOVE. I know that in order for my words written {or typed} to become actions I have to make an effort to learn more than school and life has already taught me and to continue to grow as a Latina. I am very proud of who I am, where I came from and the accomplishments made as a Momma and Wife. But, I also know that in order to make a true difference outside of my home and not just with my immediate peers I must make the effort to MOVE and get out there and learn what this world as a whole has to offer. Because at the end of the day....actions really do speak louder than words....

Which is why I am so happy and over-joyed to be attending the LATISM'12 Conference!

I hope to learn not just how to reach out to a bigger audience in a more effective and efficient manner but also what I can do to help educate my little family about what we need to do to ensure a prosperous future. 

I am so Blessed to be in this place right now and to be able to attend this conference. I can't wait and I hope to see some of my fellow Bloggers there! This will be such a great experience!
