This is our 1,000th blog post. Un mil. Who would have known? ¿Quién lo iba a predecir?
To ALL who have taken the time to visit our web page, THANK YOU! ¡GRACIAS! We welcome all readers, all comments, and open debate. To all those you have given us stories to cover, we thank you as well.
To everyone who has joined our Facebook community (like Carmen, Manny, Arely, Claudio, Ed, Patrick, JM, Ulises, Omar, Charlie, Myrna, Charles, Lloyd, Frank, Isaac, Victoria, Chris, Lola, etc. etc. etc.), GRACIAS. THANK YOU! Every day YOU and so many others (yes, even you, Dayvid 🙂 ) put a smile on our face. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. So much so that today, the Rebeldes did a new Facebook Fan Page cover banner and have accepted that the awful Timeline design is here to stay. When in Rome… What do you think of the banner? (Inspired by our friends at NBC Latino)
To everyone who makes us laugh on Twitter every day (like @TawniVixen and so many many other Twitter stars), THANK YOU! We are Twitter addicts, and we love to interact and tweet with our community there.
To all our new Pinterest friends (man, that site is addicting!), thanks for all the likes and repins!
We are loving Tumblr too and to all you reblog us, ¡GRACIAS!
How can we not forget YouTube? To all the views and comments (both the Good and the Bad), THANK YOU!
And yes, we are also on G+ now and we want to THANK everyone who has given us a +1 (like Patrick and Frederick, and so many others).
Finally, TO EVERYONE who has cross-linked us, read us, commented on us, crapped on us, sent us cool emails, sent us emails to go back to Mexico, cursed at all, laughed with us, made us crack up, and made us a BETTER company, GRACIAS MIL. YOU are what keeps us going, and why we feel the independent media is the future of the world. And now we have real stats to prove that alternative media for US Latino issues and untold stories do indeed have a global interest.
As for that one guy who kept posting and commenting and posting and disrespecting our community and insulting others to the point that we had to block him? Hey, we THANK YOU too. And we have a special video for you.
