Jennifer Gonzalez’s blog is on Blogspot.
DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?
Jennifer Gonzalez (JG): I write about the Cuban dance scene in Washington DC. That includes clubs, DJs, events, dancing as well as articles relating to the music, the culture, and how people react to it. I post videos, interviews, photos, and links to classes, events, and parties.
DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Salsa Casino in DC?
JG: I am very active in the Cuban dance scene having danced salsa for 11 years with a 4-year focus in Cuban salsa. I want the community to grow so I decided to write a blog to give exposure to the dance and culture.
DCSME: How is Salsa Casino in DC different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?
JG: At this time, there are no other blogs actively covering the Cuban dance scene in DC. As far as other dance blogs, mine focuses on Cuban salsa, rumba, son, and forms of dance that others may not understand.
DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?
JG: I enjoy blogging because it gives me an outlet to express my thoughts and opinions. It has also given me the opportunity to put DC on the map for Cuban dance. I have integrated interviews into the blog and given exposure to the only female Cuban DJ in the United States. I feel proud of my writing and enjoy the feedback I receive from around the world.
DCSME: How often do you update Salsa Casino in DC?
JG: I try to update my blog on a weekly basis. There are times I am able to write more than one or two times a week.
DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?
JG: Although my blog is dedicated to Cuban dance and music, I feel that we can all learn from each other through what we write. I try to share the background of the dance in hopes that someone who is unfamiliar with the genre can learn something new.
