Website: Mamiverse

posted in: Websites

Looking for a website that focuses on motherhood, fashion, finance, and more – from a Latina perspective? Look no further than Mamiverse!


I just found this gem of a website, and I have to say, wow! I love reading Latina magazine because they cover a wide array of topics related to Latinas – and I also read several other fashion and parenting magazines and websites for news, views, and most importantly, style tips. With Mamiverse, I get all of the topics that interest me – from a Latina perspective – in one place.


Mamiverse is divided into four main topics: health, money, school and style. The website already features hot writer Alisa Valdes (author of The Dirty Girls Social Club) and big names like Carmen Wong Ulrich, whom I recognize for her financial advice on The Today Show. You can get a dash of celebrity, with features about Daisy Fuentes of Jennifer Lopez, but also a series titled Daughters We Love, featuring innovative women. Other articles range from technology to bilingual issues and everything in between.


The website’s design is bright and attractive yet simple to navigate. Readers can sign up for a recipe newsletter, or join clubMami to network with other readers. Advertising is unobtrusive and relatable (i.e., no ads promising a way to earn $50,000 a day working from home!).


The founder of Mamiverse is Rene Alegria, founder of Rayo, a HarperCollins imprint that specializes in publishing for the Hispanic market. You can see a list of the imprint’s children’s books here.
