It's been months since I last blogged. It seems I'm not the only one who has abandoned her blog. Nor am I the only one worried about the possibility that blogging is on its way to extinction. The truth is that I'm writing a lot these days, but not here. I'm writing something that wants to become my next book. This, plus a demanding academic term, leaves me without time to blog. I should also mention that I'm pretty active on Twitter, so I do feel that I'm expressing myself. Having said this, I don't want to abandon my blog. So, from now on, I'll write shorter posts and place links to interesting articles related to telenovelas. Here are two related to Telemundo:

Telemundo to launch in Venezuela via cable operator Inter.
Will this change Venezuelans telenovela consumption habits? Will it change their appreciation/taste/perception of Venezuelan telenovelas?

Telemundo blends English into a mostly Spanish lineup
Is this a real reflection of Latino demographics in the US? How will this affect the Spanish language? How will it affect telenovela consumption in the US?

I really enjoy your tweets but I'm happy you haven't abandoned blogging completely.

I've been watching telenovelas now for almost two years. And being an Anglo, I do enjoy most of the shows from Telemundo over Univision....though Brazilian soaps are wonderful! One thing I noticed in a couple characters, one from El Clon and the other from La Casa del Lado, is the excessive use of English. These two characters seems to do this to impress and elevate their status, when in fact,they seem to have none. What do you think about this?
P.S. I found this blog through your entry on Dona Barbara which I saw condensed on Mun2.
