Hi, I'm Liz, and I'll be posting here about Latin American women's blogs.
I would love to be able to say, "Here's what's happening this week in the Latin American blogosphere." But I don't have that big picture! For now, I'm going to point to women's blogs that I find, and give you some commentary.
For non-Spanish speakers, I recommend that you try reading these blogs with Google Language Tools and automatic translation. It's imperfect, but you'll get a basic idea. What if every day, we all read a blog and a newspaper that was from a language and culture not our own?
As I search for women's blogs in (Spanish-speaking) Latin America, I'm finding small clusters, often grouped by country. I'll hit a batch of Chilean lefty anarchist feminists, or a strongly-linked group of Argentinian literary types. It's very interesting.
So please bear with me as I learn what's out there and as I make an attempt to make these blogs more visible to English-speaking blogging women!
