A Brief Blog Profile: Dos Lives
by Thomas Hynes
The blog Dos Lives gets its name from the experience of being Latino in America. And really that experience could probably describe any group of people living in the States. You have your own cultural identity and traditions. But, there's also this larger country and society of which to take part. It's a unique way of experiencing life and culture. It's two lives, or, in the case of this blog, dos.
Now, having said all that, the bulk of this blog deals with the entertainment industry. There's also news on tech and fashion. There's even a Streets of New York section where you can read about events ranging from International Pillow Fight Day to Fashion Week. You can also read about how Sofia Vergara (of "Modern Family") is becoming today's Lucille Ball. You can also read about Charlie Sheen's feelings on his Latino heritage. There's even this post about how ABC/Univison is hiring!
As you can see Dos Lives is really more of a lifestyle and culture blog that so happens to be written by Latino Americans. Or better yet, it projects the American experience through the lens of growing up in a Latino household. And even if it is presented that way, the content, the subject matter will be pretty familiar to even a non-Latino audience. Trust me.
