Latina Journalist/Blogger Publishes e-book as Crowdfunding Venture
PR Log - Sep 24, 2012 - Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are the social media standards today for many, leaving many unsure of how to maximize or monetize blog sites.

It’s a question that award-winning journalist and online Latino media trailblazer, Marisa Treviño, answers in her new bilingual e-book "A Simple Start to Blogging with Social Medi@."

“With all the hype about today’s social media, it’s forgotten that blogs were the first real social media,” Treviño says.  “The remarkable thing is with all the social media platforms available today, blogs are still a better and meaningful way to share information. When combined with other social media, blogging becomes a powerful online tool that can be a moneymaker too.”

In "A Simple Start to Blogging with Social Medi@," Treviño, publisher of the nationally recognized English-language online news site,, delivers an easy-to-understand guide for people either new to blogging or struggling to decide if blogging is right for them.

Readers of all levels of online experience will find "A Simple Start to Blogging with Social Medi@" an invaluable help. The book was created to help the casual writer who prefers 140-character posts; a retiree who wants to create a personalized online space; a small business owner who wants to generate more business leads and growth; a non-profit that wants to spread news of their cause, or an expert seeking public speaking opportunities.

Beyond the immeasurable tools the e-book is meant to provide its readers, it is also a fundraising tool.

“Crowdfunding is a popular way for people to raise money online,” Treviño explains. “I wanted a way to raise money but give people something in return. So, for a nominal $4.99 purchase price, Latina Lista gets 100% of the funds from the English-language book.”

Proceeds from sales of the Spanish version are split between Latina Lista and the publisher Smashwords.

The book in English is available at BookTango

Comience Tu Blog Utilizando Las Redes Soci@les, is available at Smashwords
