Our 2014 LATISM Award Picks: Inspirational, Political and Social Good Bloggers


Only a few hours are left to vote in the 2014 LATISM awards for The Best in Cyberlandia. The nominees are all outstanding, but we have found what we believe are the best of the best.

The deadline to vote is today. Click here --VOTE 



THE BEST LATIN@ INSPIRATIONAL BLOGGER



Eliana Tardío is probably one of few Latinas blogging about raising children with Down syndrome. Her "Creciendo con todas Las Habilidades" blog  touches many topics on special needs and there is fresh information on a daily basis. Many of the blogs are her personal point of view and experiences. 


THE BEST LATIN@ POLITICAL BLOGGER



Elianne Ramos is our choice in this category. Her Google Hangouts are a must watch. She covers every topic Latinas want to explore: feminism, Affordable Care Act, and Latino youths to name a few. When you watch her videos you feel like you really are part of the conversation.


THE BEST SOCIAL GOOD BLOGGER



The Orphaned Earring is our choice in this category. This blog is definitely about social good and about helping those in need. Denisse Montalvan is one heck of a giving woman.  She makes bracelets from donated "orphaned earring." You know the one that is left after you lost the other one. Montalvan uses the money to provide clothes, shoes and even better conditions for the children at the Escuela de Internos Hosanna, an orphanage in Nicaragua. 


Full disclosure: Wise Latinas Linked is the past winner of LATISM's 2011 and 2013 Social Network Leader award. We didn't enter the contest this year. Good luck to all the nominees!

LATISM BEST LATIN@ BILINGUAL BLOGGER


Checa la Movie is our choice in this category. What really jumps out of this site are the down-to-earth video interviews Teresa Garza does with many actors in Hollywood. She really has the ability to make them feel comfortable and tell it like it is.


LATISM BEST LATIN@ HEALTH BLOGGER 



Jaime, Mi Dulce Guerrero is our choice in this category. This site takes on the issue of Type 1 diabetes also known as juvenile diabetes. It's a beautiful website with lots of updated information on diabetes, nutrition, personal experiences, healthy living aimed at the Latino community. This is very important information, because the American Diabetes Association says more than 208,000 Americans under the age of 20 are estimated to have diagnosed diabetes.



LATISM BEST LATIN@ EDUCATION BLOGGER




The José Luis Vilson is our choice in this category. Refreshing,  honest, blunt, to the point and positive are just a few words to describe this blog that centers on education. Vilson is a math educator, blogger, speaker and activist and it all comes through in his blogs. Topics cover everything from "Bad Teachers Everywhere, All the Time Even You" to"Bad Principals, Too." Vilson says things we all want to say, and he asks questions we all want to ask. Great blog!
