Happy New Year to all of you! We hope 2011 bring you lots of happiness, peace, love and success! As 2010 comes to an end, both Ana Lilian and I want to thank you for all your support, inquiries, comments and contributions because without it SpanglishBaby would not be what it is today.
This has been a year full of awesomeness for SpanglishBaby. For starters, we celebrated our first anniversary with a major redesign which — after a few minor glitches — completely changed our look, making it much easier to find the information we’ve put together since we launched in Feb. 2009.
We also introduced you to five diverse and very talented regular contributors who have added invaluable insight to what it’s like to raise bilingual and bicultural children across the spectrum. We hope you’ve been enjoying and learning from their posts as much as we have. Along the same lines, we were lucky to add more distinguished experts to our already amazing roster. From what we hear, our Ask an Expert section is one of our your favorites, so rest assured that this is one area we plan on making even better.
We’ve also been truly active in terms of social media this year and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of our 2,800 followers on Twitter and our 1,272 followers on Facebook. We know not everyone has the time to come over here every day, so we appreciate your involvement with us through social media.
While we’re not ready to disclose what we have planned for next year — you didn’t think we’d celebrate our second anniversary sitting down, did you? — we do have lots of new and exciting ideas in store. So we hope you stick around .
In the meantime, I’d like to share with you some of the really cool media coverage SpanglishBaby got this year… Yes, we are bragging a bit, but we think that if this is the way we’re ending 2010, then 2011 can only be that much better!
Let us start with Ana Lilian’s excellent interview on CNN en Español’s NotiMujer:
¡Feliz Año Nuevo a todos!
Con muchísimo cariño,
Ana Lilian y Roxana
Excellent, wrap-up on an excellent year. I have enjoyed watching you grow and get the attention and praise you both deserve for creating such an amazing community and resource.
Looking forward to what you are planning for 2011.
Thank you, Carrie, for your unwavering support and your very kind words.
