Ana Lydia Monaco—Latina Lifestyle Bloggers
I met Ana Lydia online through FB comments. I had just started blogging and I was doing some Lifestyle blogging, but not on clothes and make-up and beauty and health, but more on self-help and reflections, and journaling, and pampering your muse—and we connected.
She invited me to be a part of the group and she added me to the FB page and thus we became friends. I had not met her before, but she also attended the Mujer Adelante Conference and after that, she and I connected through the Count Me In Meet Up group online. I was trying to start something with the AMAZING Latinas in the área, and she already had this group going, and so we decided to have a phone conversation.
And, it was enlightening and very helpful to me. I had jsut moved to Long Beach adn was just getting started with networking and meeting Latinas in teh área and Ana was a wealth of inforamtion. I also found her motivated, inspiring, and ready to lead her organization to greatness.
She is the founder of Latina Lifestyle Bloggers and I have followed them since the beginning of time, well my time as a blogger. I am very impressed with her group and with what they have accomplished. Ana has a visión for professsionalizing blogging and bloggers and her advice is spot on. Her tips are invaluable and many people take them to heart. She is the ultimat profesional and has the wherewithall to share with others what she has learned about how to conduct yourself online.
She is now planning her 4th Lifestyle Conference in Los Angeles for March 2014. It has become a go to event for Lifestyle bloggers all over the country and many make the trek to Los Angeles for this very special event. I have not had the pleasure of attending yet, but it is on my Bucket List.
Ana Lydia, gracias, mi amiga por tu energía y visión, you have been an inspiration to me.
