Latina Lifestyle Bloggers Special Invitation!

L.A.’s Most Exciting Social Media Event is Happening This Month

Why love Latina Lifestyle Bloggers? Because we are smart, friendly, successful, inclusive, and ready to bring you with us! I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Bloggers everywhere are joining us on April 26-28, 2012 for our first L.A. conference. Although Latina Lifestyle Bloggers is an international group, wherever you stand as a blogger, it is going to light you up with unparallelled relationships and tools.

Excited about being a sponsor? We still have some premium opportunities for you to participate with us before, during, and after the conference. Over 300 curated and highly unified bloggers are interested in more than a casual relationship because we mean good business! Learn more about how we collaborate with sponsors in the video below.

I recently interviewed Ana Lydia Monaco, founder of Latina Lifestyle Bloggers at the “Mujeres Destacadas / Exceptional Women Awards” hosted by La Opinión Publications. As a recipient of the award in the Art and Culture category and as the author of the Light Riders children’s book series, I was thrilled to share that divine moment with her because she is such an effective advocate for Latinas in the genres of writing, social media, and much more. We discussed the wealth of opportunities and groundswell that our blogger group is generating through focused and intelligent best practices.

About Light Stream

Casandra Moreno Lombera is an author, blogger, and Emmy nominated television producer who grew up in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver communities. In junior high school, she promised her single mother that she would get straight A’s in order to graduate early and help her relocate to Aurora, Colorado. She did… and though women and Latinas were scarcely visible in television, she dreamed of a future in broadcast journalism. From an early age, Casandra wanted children and loved to write. She began her career in television (writing and reporting on camera) at the age of 18. She also began raising two very successful children as a single mom. Throughout her career, she became an award winning, television producer/program creator (receiving both the Imagen and Golden Eagle Awards); was executive producer of both public affairs and children’s programming at KWHY-TV, Channel 22; and worked on camera hosting public affairs talk shows for many years. More distinctive opportunities came her way, however her desire to write children’s books and to blaze new trails in the publishing world became irrepressible. Her dreams today focus on empowering youth, writing (particularly about God’s love for them), and raising money for the impoverished through organizations like Hope Worldwide https://www.hopeww.org/sslpage.aspx. Throughout her life, she has been passionate about hands-on giving to the community and has received many forms of appreciation (including a congressional commendation) for her efforts. She has served on several boards including Communications Bridge Institute, training disadvantaged youth in television production; St. Anne’s, building futures for at risk teens and unwed mothers; HOPE, Hispanas Organized for Political Equality; the American Diabetes Association fund raising committee; and the Consumer Advisory Committee for the California Contractors State Licensing Board. Casandra is also a recipient of La Opinion’s 2012 Mujeres Destacadas (Exceptional Women) Award. She is completely smitten with her husband, two children, and four grand babies who inspired Light Riders. Follow her @casandratweets and @Lightersbook on Twitter.
