Marta takes the spotlight

Sometimes it's difficult to determine how much is too much to put out there on the internet. You want to speak from your heart and tell your story, but then you may hesitate because you're not sure whether there could be repercussions. Well, our speaker, Marta, writes from her heart - she has found her voice and shares with us lots of personal photos, so much so that after spending a little time on her blog, you'll feel like you know her entire family - and that's her secret!

Marta Darby from will be speaking at the panel on "Secrets to a Successful Blog" and here's a little more about her:

"The most important thing that you need to know about Marta is that she does not go anywhere without her red lipstick. She sings in the car when she thinks no one is looking and has even gone as far as playing some serious percussion on her steering wheel.

Marta was born in Havana and fled Cuba with her family when she was just 5 years old.
If she were granted three wishes, one of them would surely be to see a free Cuba in her lifetime. She would also wish for her children to have happy and fulfilled lives. Her third wish would be for really long legs, but that’s not important right now.

When she was growing up, she wanted to be an artist and a writer. Writing her blog, My big, fat Cuban family makes her feel like she’s accomplished both. She embodies Cuban hospitality with her great sense of humor and passion for good food and great friends."
