#Blogtalk with #MJRacadio

It’s been 4 months of being a professional stalker lol! Let me tell you the real story behind #Blogtalk with #MJRacadio, it all started from recording blog diary because of boredom & needed to vent so to speak. It came to my attention, why don’t I create a show or invite influential people to inspire others through live interviews. Ironically, extremely surprised when all invitations were replied with big yes! do you wanna know my secret ? I just asked them that’s it!& the rest is history :-). Anyhow my sister said “Your #Blogtalk is interestingly funny”. Little did I know, this #Blogtalk is getting a lot buzz lately & couldn’t imagine the Hollywood Foreign Press Association member Janet Susan Rodriguez Nepales said “You’ve gone so far in a little time” as well as Emmy Nominated Producer of #TheTalk Marc Anthony Nicolas said “I like what your doing & wishing you nothing but success. Congrats! On your Season 2”. Still can’t believe that I went to Hollywood and celebrated Season 1 Finale of the show. Moving forward, Season 2 would be interesting one because of variety of influential people from Film Maker to Make-up Artist & Talent Manager to Interpreter. In addition, new logo will be up soon!, new give aways, and open for advertising because of its global appeal powered by Soundcloud it’s free from smartphones. Season 2 of #Blogtalk with #MJRacadio premiering September 07, 9PM PST/6PM EST http://soundcloud.com/mjracadio
