My good friend Xenia from Raised by Culture has been attending all sorts of Blogging Conferences and shares what motivates her to keep blogging and being the best person she can be. I love all the info she shares with me because it's inspiring and makes me want to do more with my blog. Thanks to her I found out about a Houston Conference called LATISM'12.
A pioneering social media organization, Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) has been hailed as the most influential online movement in the new multicultural Web.LATISM, the largest organization for Latino and Latina engaged in social media, is a 501(c) 4 nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to advancing the social, civic and economic status of the Latino community.
LATISM also serves corporate brands, NGOs and government entities, with a broad range of services including research, event sponsorships, and leadership training. One of the most popular hashtags on Twitter, the #LATISM hashtag captures over 10 million impressions on a daily basis and enjoys the largest Latino network on Facebook. - From latism.orgLast week I received an email from the Houston Director Juan Alanis about a sponsorship to LATISM'12. Luckily, Xenia put a good word in for me and I am now attending my FIRST conference right here in Houston.
I can't wait. I'm excitamated. I'm nervous. I'm freaking out a bit. But overall I feel truly blessed to be a part of this. Not only am I going to meet some very inspiring people but I'm excited to be motivated in ways I never thought possible.
This conference is going to help me figure out where I want to go with this blog and keep me focused on that. I'm hoping to learn more about myself and what I am capable of doing after this conference. I'm also hoping to make lots of new friends right here in Houston. Oh, I'm also pumped to meet Ruby from Growing Up Blackxican at LATISM'12. I've heard all sorts of sweet things about her and I'm sure we'll hit it off!
I've made a list of what I need to take to this conference and here it is..
- D - Nikon D60 DSLR
- Black cardigan cause we all know conference rooms get cold
- Two pens - Black & Blue
- Notepad for all sorts of notes
- Business cards I ordered from Moo.com
If you can think of anything else that I should take and haven't thought of, please let me know. I want to be well prepared for this. Thanks. :] Please spread the word. The more the merrier!
Please visit LATISM'12 for more information on this conference. It is being held between October 25th to October 27th at the Hyatt in Downtown Houston. Oh and I will be there. That should be enough for you to want to go haha! ;]
