Juan G. Tornoe, a pioneer in the Latino blogosphere and founder of the number one rated news site HispanicTrending.net, has launched the blog Hispanics in Austin (found online at http://hispanicsinaustin.wordpress.com/about/).
Tornoe's blog will cover the latest happenings in Austin regarding Latino education, politics, culture, economics, media, and community through Tornoe's news and analysis, as well as from a select base of contributors.
"The idea is to make this new site Hispanics in Austin a community effort so people hear a wide array of voices and can truly get a sense what's going on in Austin's Latinosphere," said Tornoe. "This isn't just a site just for Hispanics but rather for anyone who wants to become more informed about the trends and events happening in the Austin Latino community and how this impacts businesses, educators, and organizations in the region."
Among the features highlighted on Hispanics in Austin is a growing list of Latino organizations, charities, and companies as well as community postings about the latest Austin Hispanic news, events, and public issues. The site also publishes Spanish content.
