HUD goes bilingual with Spanish blog

Written by:

This post is also available in: Spanish

Our guest bloggers today are Felisha Davis and Elena Gaona, HUD’s Office of Public Affairs 
 
Earlier this year, HUD was very excited to roll out a new interactive blog, The HUDdle. Many posts later, we continue to reach out directly to the public like Nuevo blog en espanol- The HUDdle en Espanolnever before. And now we’ve gone bilingual! The HUDdle en Español officially launched on June 13.  Like its English counterpart, the Spanish-language HUD blog will provide a platform for new dialogue about housing related information and act as an interactive source of information for our Spanish speaking audiences.

At more than 50 million, Latinos constitute one of the nation’s largest minority groups. And with 1 in 6 Americans being of Hispanic heritage, HUD understands the importance of embracing our collective diversity and has taken great strides to not only expand the vehicles of communication available, but transform the way the agency does business. The HUDdle en Español is one of the many mediums HUD has put in place to serve as a transparent foundation for public engagement, housing education, and an up-close and personal look at the Obama Administration’s efforts to address the issues, while also reaching a growing number of bilingual communities.

HUD has also created other social media avenues in Spanish, all accessible from the new blog: HUDdle en Español, HUD RSS Feeds Español, HUD Facebook en Español: (“Like” us!), HUD Twitter en Español: (“Follow” us!) and HUD Podcasts en Español.

As in English, there will be regular bloggers, guest bloggers, video blogs, and special behind-the-scenes-HUD content you won’t find anywhere else.  So whether you’re practicing your Spanish or it’s your first language, be sure to visit the new blog and leave us a comment. Saludos y hasta pronto – nos vemos en línea!

  1. This blog would be more effective if it was offered or set up to affiliate with college or high school students who are learning spanish.

  2. Este blog sería más eficaz si se le ofreció o la creación de afiliarse a la universidad o los estudiantes de secundaria que están aprendiendo español.
