Transitions. They happen all the time. Hell, I have gotten so used to transitions lately, I just roll with it now.

Today, I left Being Latino as a Contributor and Twitter Strategist. My reasons were simple ones: TIME. The TIME to focus on new exciting publishing and media ventures that quite frankly, have me excited and passionate again. Yes, yours truly, is going to be doing things (and getting an actual salary) that will blend my 20 years in the business world into one very “once in a lifetime” opportunity. I cannot fully disclose it yet, but I can say things: my next chapter in life will combine my experience in education, publishing, politics, journalism, social media, Twitter, Facebook, blogging, operations and business ownership. So TIME is limited, so I had to say goodbye to a great bunch of wonderful people.

So to all the gente in Being Latino, thanks so much for the love and inspiration. You guys rock and I wish you all the best in the world.

Major props to Being Latino’s Lance Rios and Louis Pagan, the co-founder of LATISM, for today’s appearance on Fox News Latino. The topic was “Social Media and Latinos” and asked this question: How important are sites like Facebook and Twitter to the Hispanic community?

We here at v5 love Chicago, we love it: the vibe, the Loop, the bars near Wrigley, da Cubbies, the improv scene, and of course, the deep dish.

Yes, we love Chicago so much, we would marry it.

So today, our #FollowFriday for is all about: Chicago.

So here is our list of great Chicagoland people you MUST follow on Twitter:

twitter2_bigger @foiledcupcakes Mari (like Safari) is so Chicago: hip, cool, and oh yeah, makes the best cupcakes around. I should know, I have tried them and she is not paying me to talk about them. Yes, I am real journalist here. Seriously, I have enjoyed Maris’ business grow at Foiled Cupcakes, since it was about the same time when we formed v5 and started promoting Fernando. And yes, Mari (like Safari) is a Twitter Rockstar.

JoeTheProducerFall09_bigger @joetheproducer: I met Joe over the summer in Chicago, and I was so happy to do so. His style on Twitter (fun, honest, authentic, and awesome) totally reflects his personality. Joe is a Web TV producer and has a great show called EnlightenMeRadio, a fabulous show for entrepreneurs.

Di_Allan_BDaycrop_bigger @chicagodiane: Diane is amazing, her personality is infectious (in a good sense of the word), and I always love connecting with her. She is also one sharp VP for a technology company, and yes she is a hopeless Cubs fan. She will always put a smile in your Twitter stream, because Diane does Twitter right: connect, engage, be yourself.

gj_bigger @big_teeth: Ah, Gregg, you have the right Chicago sports attitude (Cubs always blow it) and your video work is top-notch. You crack me up with your humor and fashionable Windy City style. Now you have become the Chair of GATT = Guys Against Terrirble Television. Yes, sire, I will follow you into battle.

twitterProfilePhoto_bigger @aakomas: This DePaul Journalism student loves her sports, absolutely loves them. She knows her soccer, basketball, and baseball. Amy is also very cool to hang out with on Twitter. You will love how she connects with people.

And how can I not include the Queen of Chicago? The Social Media Maven of the Midway? The Big Bear? The Cosmic Cub? Yes, people, yes, if you can only follow 1 person on Twitter,

only 1 person,

GD

Then you MUST MUST follow @ginidietrich. Why? Well, she knows her stuff, she embodies what social media for business should be about and if she gets a little over 1200 more followers, I promised I would sing her an original song on video. Yes, join the #Gini10K movement so I can look like a goof on video. (Wait, I always look like a goof on video.)
