During the LBC Track at the first Women Get Social in San Diego, Nicole Presley of presleyspantry.com and Denise Cortés of pearmama.com shared with a room full of Latina bloggers how the seamlessly use their culture and heritage to fuel their content.
Our culture really is a foundation for many of the stories we tell through our blog posts. Nicole and Denise shared many insights on how they create content on their blogs, sponsored and non, that reflect their experiences as Latinas with deep roots in Southern California. In the end, a lot of it has to do with being an authentic storyteller and being real.
So where to begin? We put together a list of four things to keep in mind that the speakers shared during their presentation.

Hello, LBC readers! Andriana, of La Moda here. This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending the 5th Annual GRAMMY In The Schools Live! concert sponsored by the Ford Motor Company Fund. The LBC Team scored a pass to the event and asked me to cover the concert so knew I couldn’t pass up the amazing opportunity!
It was a great night of music with GRAMMY Camp – Jazz Session students-an elite group of top high school instrumentalists and singers who were hand selected from across the country to perform at The 5th annual GRAMMY In The Schools Live! Concert.
The concert was held at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and I got full access to check out the snazzy jazz band before they make their BIG debut on Music’s Biggest Night – The Grammy Celebration after-party, which takes place this Sunday, January 26th.
The Jazz Session composed of the GRAMMY Choir, Band, Combo, and the GRAMMY Media Team. These students definitely had the audience in awe while performing Bobby Troup’s R&B standard “Route 66,” a classic. You can see a snippet of the performance on the LBC Instagram account @LBConnect.
Students also had an opportunity to perform with Grammy nominees which included comedian Tig Notaro, who performed some of her stand up comedy and had the crowd roaring with laughter, along with a Live performance from the band Vampire Weekend, who are up for Best Alternative Album.
Neil Portnow (seen in photo), President/CEO of The GRAMMY Foundation described GRAMMY Camp as “a real life experience for young musicians looking to break into the music industry.”
So if you are or know a high school student interested in a career in music, make sure to tell them about GRAMMY in the schools programs. I surely got my kicks on while listening to the melodies of the new generation of performers and future Grammy nominees.
We look back on 2013 with awe and gratitude. So much has happened and we could not have done it without the dedication of the many Latina Bloggers who have collaborated with us and work so passionately to grow their online presence. We’re also thankful for the trust our clients have put in us to deliver campaigns with results that speak for themselves. And we can’t forget this all started three years ago with our one and only Ana Flores, whose energy, drive and passion impacts everything we do as a team, bloggers and entrepreneurs.
LBC hit the ground running in 2013 starting with a trip to Dearborn, Michigan with Ford Motor Company, where we not only learned about the company’s industrial history and groundbreaking technology, we were also invited to the Henry Ford Museum and The Rouge Factory as special guests.
We also continued our relationship with Maseca, but this time with a year-long, multi-blogger recipe campaign that generated content the brand has been able to capitalize on in social media and other online properties, while giving the bloggers continued exposure. We also launched an amazing contest (the winning bloggers got a trip to San Francisco!), blog tour and Twitter Party with Kikkoman, plus continued our on-going collaboration with Neutrogena, which focused on all of their amazing products for skincare, hair and makeup. And that was only the beginning!
Some of those Connection Alerts came to you from the friendly skies, as we continued to make our way around the country to San Francisco with Kikkoman, Texas for the final Blissdom Conference and Miami for Hispanicize, where Ana Flores shared her “15 Minutes of Genius.” However, we all know 15 minutes is not enough time for Ana to share all she’s learned from this phenomenon we call blogging. To make sure everyone got the opportunity to share in the learning process, she also spearheaded the first-ever Latina Bloggers Connect Track, which debuted at the fabulous Blogalicious Conference in Atlanta. With Sprint on board, the track included everything and anything you wanted to know about the impact of Latina Bloggers, how to work with brands, how to pitch the online Latino media, the facts about SEO and more.
And what’s an extraordinary year without a trip to the Big Apple? It’s an absolute must. Add the LATISM family and Johnson & Johnson to the mix and the year is pretty much set! This was a fabulous project, as it was an opportunity to hear from you – the influential voices online. Latina Bloggers were invited to the Johnson & Johnson suite to talk on video about what inspires them to care. It really is a dream job when you’re part of a campaign that opens the mic for these stories to be heard. Doesn’t get any better than that.
Did you hear about Sway Latina? Earlier this year, LBC joined forces with Sway Group to represent a group of Latina bloggers who are now part of the exclusive Sway roster of bloggers. We hope to expand that group in 2014 and continue to support those Latina bloggers that are focused on professional growth for their blogs.
With such a great year behind us, we’re excited to see what 2014 will bring. Whatever comes our way, we’re happy that we get to walk (and run) down this path with you all to uplift and inspire one another. Thank you for all the fun memories, the wisdom shared, the pictures that say 1000 words and the friendships that will last a life-time.
May you and your loved ones have a wonderful new year!
Antes de dar comienzo al año nuevo, damos una vista al 2103 y nos llena un sentimiento de emoción y gratitud a la misma vez. Tantas cosas increíbles han sucedido, pero nada hubiese sido posible sin la dedicación y pasión de las blogueras latinas que han colaborado con nosotros y que trabajan tan apasionadamente para crecer su presencia en línea. También estamos agradecidas por la confianza que han puesto en nosotras nuestros clientes para que llevemos a cabo campañas que generan los resultados que hablan por sí mismos. Y no se nos puede olvidar que todo esto comenzó hace tres años con nuestra Ana Flores, quién con su pasión, energía y empuje nos motiva e impacta constantemente como equipo, blogueras y empresarias.
El 2013 lo comenzamos con el pié derecho con un viaje a Dearborn, Michigan con Ford Motor Company, donde conocimos acerca de la rica historia de la compañía y de sus constantes avances tecnológicos, además de asistir a eventos especiales en el Henry Ford Museum y The Rouge Factory.
Este año también continuamos nuestra relación con Maseca, esta vez con una campaña que duró todo el año, con múltiples blogueras creando recetas que han servido de contenido para Maseca poder usar en sus redes sociales, y a la vez promover las creaciones de las blogueras. También tuvimos el gusto de lanzar una campaña con Kikkoman que incluía un blog tour, una fiesta en Twitter y un concurso para un viaje a San Francisco para las blogueras ganadoras. Y claro que tuvimos muchísimas campañas con Neutrogena, nuestro cliente de tres años, enfocadas en sus increíbles productos para la piel, belleza y el cabello. ¡Y todo esto fue nada más el comienzo de un gran año!
En el 2013 dimos luz a los primeros LBC Live Parties — eventos íntimos organizados por blogueras alrededor de la nación — con Lay’s Stax Qué Rico, Jergen’s Crema, Avocados from México y AT&T. Estos eventos son una manera maravillosa para que blogueras y las marcas colaboren en la vida real que nos encanta que el concepto haya sido tan bien recibido. Fue una maravilla ver las fotos de las blogueras recibiendo a sus amigas blogueras locales en su casa y compartiendo risas, comida y buenos momentos.
Algunas de estas campañas, o Connection Alerts, les llegaron desde los cielos, mientras el equipo de LBC continuaba sus viajes frenéticos alrededor del país visitando San Francisco con Kikkoman, Texas para la última conferencia de Blissdom y Miami para Hispanicize, donde Ana Flores compartió sus “15 Minutes of Genius”. Ya sabemos que 15 minutos no son suficientes para que Ana comparta todo lo que ha aprendido en este camino de la vida bloguera. Por eso, nos comprometimos a que todas tengan la oportunidad de aprender y crecer, y coordinamos el primer Latina Bloggers Connect Track que debutó en Atlanta durante la Blogalicious Conference. Gracias al patrocinio de Sprint, las sesiones incluyeron información completa acerca del impacto que tienen las blogueras latina, cómo trabajar con marcas, cómo hacerle un pitch a los medios Latinos, la importancia del SEO y más.
Y claro que para tener un año de lo más espectacular no puede faltar un viaje a la Gran Manzana. Y si ese viaje incluye la conferencia de LATISM y colaborar con Johnson & Johnson, ¡no se puede pedir más! La campaña de Care Inspires Care que ayudamos a organizar con Johnson & Johnson durante LATISM, estuvo llena de inspiración ya que nos dió la oportunidad de entrevistar a casi 30 de las voces más influyentes en la red. Invitamos a las blogueras a sentarse en una entrevista para contarnos qué les inspira cariño y cuidado a ellas. Realmente es un honor poder trabajar con campañas que dan el espacio para que este tipo de historias se compartan.
¿Has escuchado acerca de Sway Latina? Al principio del año, LBC unió fuerzas con Sway Group para representar a un selecto grupo de blogueras que ahora forman parte de la exclusiva lista de bloggers que representa Sway. Nuestra visión es expandir ese grupo en el 2014 y continuar apoyando a las blogueras latinas que demuestran pasión y entrega para crecer profesionalmente.
Con un año tan increíble que dejamos atrás, estamos re emocionadas para ver qué nos depara el Año Nuevo. Sea lo que sea, estamos felices de que podemos caminar (¡y hasta correr!) por este camino con todas ustedes para inspirarnos y elevarnos mutuamente. Gracias por tantas memorias maravillosas, por la sabiduría compartida, las fotos que dicen más de 1000 palabras y las amistades que perdurarán toda una vida.
¡Les deseamos abundancia, paz y mucho éxito a ustedes y sus familias!
