About Us

We launched the Hispanic Blog Network to give a voice to the Hispanic community. Here we will discuss the latest news and trends in business, politics, lifestyle, and much more.

We have gathered a fantastic group of journalists to offer you smart information. Our contributors come from the US, Latin America and Europe, and they are all experts in their fields. We also have a group of young contributors that will share their opinion on the most pressing issues, so we can have a better understanding of how the younger generations think.

If you would like to contribute feel free to apply in our Contact page.

The Hispanic Blog Network is part of The Americano

The Americano is a bilingual site that offers a different take on news and opinion.  It looks to offer a more balanced view on all the issues that concern American Hispanics today, while celebrating the richness of Hispanic Heritage.  It is a place where people can express themselves and read about similar traditional principles.
