Latino L.A. blogging

creditChanges are happening at The site, billed as "your online guide to LatinoL.A.," gathers together a rich array of community links, articles and event listings each week and has been doing so for a few years. Now associate editor Mark Sotelo introduces a Blogspot blog called LatinoLA/Daily:

The changes we will present are for the better and most importantly will still reflect the values and interests of the community. That has always been's strength and we understand that. We just realize there are new and exciting ways to do it on a bigger scale and that's the opportunity we are going to take in advantage in the coming months.

Right now, we are evaluating strengths and weakness and in a moment I will share with you how you can take part in this evaluation so that we may provide the most dynamic Latinocentric website we possibly can. First, however let's talk about what we are not going to become.

We will not become some cheesy dating service for you to send photos of how you looked 20 years ago in hopes of find a dream date. There will be no porno; we will not become a hub of goofy videos for you to jam all your office buddies email boxes with. We will be using more technology including audio and video, but again it will enrich how we share and tell out news and stories about out our culture, our people and our city.

Mark is looking for suggestions.
