She said something was going on in the Virtual Labs, so I went there. We did not know each other so much, but after chatting for a while we decided to go into a private chat and started a really fun and good connection as if we knew each other for a long time, and ever since that day we took on the responsibility to create a great new team called Etsy Spanglish.
The name came after many hours of thinking and laughing (lol!) about silly names till I just said: "Spanglish!", porqué no? Sounds good, fun, divertido and the best part es que puedes hablar en both languages or mix them up as we usually do whether we want it or not. And so the name was born.
Now, what else do we need to be a really great team? People just like YOU, con energía, ideas, good attitude, good communication and sentido del humor! We think that if we have the commitment to work together we will be able to find the solution to many problems that seem hard to solve on our own.
Our main objective is to have an active, participatory group, and through monthly chats, contests and other promotional events, obtain a positive result and success for our members. We will focus on Latin immigrants, Latin-American descendants and Spanish-speaking Americans interested in our culture and willing to share ideas, projects achieve common goals for the benefit of all.
Having said that, we think the most important thing is to have FUN!! And truly learn from each other by sharing our experiences as immigrants or simply as travelers through different cultures and the misunderstandings, some funny, some embarrassing that we have all suffered when trying to make sense of some new words or new worlds!
We will conduct interviews with our members, not only to know each other better and have a good sense of our craft and passions, but also to make them known to the general audience of the "blogosphere" to promote our craft.
We will also be publishing tips and tutorials about a variety of things of interest to our members, including different craft techniques, sources for materials, how-to articles on photography for example, which is a good part of our marketing image if you pardon the pun.
So, let's get together and have some fun! Sí se puede!
