I'm pleased to invite my friend Yissele from right here in the Charleston area to be the blogger on the hot seat!

Don't forget my Blog is in Spanish but I have Google translate hahaha...
2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?
I'm blogging two years ago but the first year did not count because it was an experiment, research and search into what I really wanted, on August 31 of this year I celebrated my First Anniversary Blog because I remember that time when two years ago I sat back in my desk and I started researching this fabulous Blog world.
