Chicas Latinas de Sacramento to be Featured on KCRA Latino Series

How’s this for a Monday?

Started my week off by interviewing with Leticia Ordaz from KCRA 3 at ThinkHouse Collective – they’re featuring the Chicas Latinas de Sacramento for an upcoming Latino series which will be airing later this month in Sacramento.

The interview went great and they’ll be getting footage of us out the community in the coming weeks, as well as interviewing a few of my volunteers. These are exciting times indeed.

— And that’s not all folks, SAVE THE DATE: Chicas Latinas de Sacramento, “Mexican Fiesta” Brunch Fundraiser will be held at Mayahuel Restaurant on Sunday September 8th. All will be invited, as this will be our official “kickoff” as a nonprofit organization. Event and ticket info coming soon!!!


Social Media Testing: #Instagram Embed and Video Features

I was very excited when Instagram introduced video, I wasn’t a huge fan of Vine personally – and dreaded building up yet another social following.

Instagram had Vine beat (in my opinion): filters, longer recording time, focus, and covers. What they were missing, the EMBED… until now! Instagram now features code embeding. About time!

Instagram added the ability to embed photos and videos on Wednesday.

Users can find the embed button — available only on desktop — on the right side of public photos or videos. The button provides a code users can insert into blogs and articles. ~ Mashable
