Since all good things are worth repeating, this week on our Feature Friday we wanted to take the time to salute once again a few of our most notable features over the last couple of weeks. Why you ask? First of all, because these folks deserve it. Second, because too often we churn out these lists every week and rarely take the time to properly appreciate everyone on them for more than a couple of seconds. Lastly, because our LATISM familia is growing and we’d like for YOU to give us recommendations about who you think we should feature. Sin pena, if you want to be featured yourself let us know! Leave a comment below… and you may be up next!
So now here are a few of our most recent features – if you haven’t followed them yet, do it now!
