June 26 Viva Viernes Lista

Ok, mi gente. Things are TAKING OFF with Viva Viernes, as several Latino marketers and bloggers are starting to spread the Latino love. ¡Gracias mil a todos! Thank you! Please keep spreading the word. We have a chance to make social media history here and be a force on Twitter.

In the meantime, before I share my list, here is this week’s question: What is your favorite Spanish-speaking city in the world? Let us know, either here or on Twitter. ¡Saludos!

And now, la lista:

@balmeras: Ah, Bethe, every time we meet in the stream, you put a smile on my face. Your love of soccer, great music and good vibes is a testament to your amazing personality and soul. You are in adopted sister territory, chica. Thank you for everything.

@georgelopez: Yes, is it THE George Lopez. This comedic genius has done a lot for la raza and we are happy to have him here. Just one thing, George, please collaborate with your fans. We won’t bite, promesa.

@HispanicTips: Just found Tomás this week and I LOVE the content he is posting on Twitter. If you want to know about Latinos and social media, he has offered some great information. ¡Gracias mil!

@jennifervides: Jennifer was one of the first social media types to publicly discuss VivaViernes in a forum. Thank you so much. Keep spreading the amor! FYI, Jennifer also knows her PR and the Latino market. Follow her.

@MsLatina: Because Ms. Latina (her name is Ms. Latina, ¡qué cool!) is Ms. Latina. Incredible passion and energy. Go NYC!

¡Feliz fin de semana, mi gente!

Ok, not the best video in the world, but I just had to add this to my blog in honor of the amazing US 2-0 victory over Spain yesterday. Yesterday proved that even though you don’t have the best talent (Spain is, I mean, was #1 in the FIFA rankings with great players like Xaxi, Fabregas, Torres), if you play hard and AS A TEAM, you can achieve anything.

The US Team proved that guts, determination, collaboration, perseverance (and yes, a little luck) lead to ultimate success. I love this US Team (Altidore, Dempsey, Donovan, Howard, Gooch, Davies, Clark, etc.) and I am so proud of them. They play in a country where soccer is, at best, the 6th most watched sport in the US, but they don’t care and they won.

¡GO USA! Now on to the finals on Sunday.
