By Linda Ponder: As top entertainment bloggers named by People en Español, and as sisters in this amazing webcitygirls journey, I found myself having to attend and cover the red carpet of Telemundo’s Premios Tu Mundo on my own. Lynn, my sister was concurrently invited by the “Oficina de Promoción Turística de la República Dominicana” on an amazing one week trip to learn about the history and the beauty of this island in the Caribbean.
I most confess I was a little nervous about thinking of having to cover this red carpet by myself, because they are MEGA busy-fast pace and all journalists, bloggers and photographers want the same thing, just a couple of seconds of the celebrities time. The moment you have their attention you must be ready with camera, microphone, iPad and as if this wasn’t enough, I now had the most fun prop signs from LP Universal printing in Puerto Rico that I wanted to incorporate and show off LOL! Oh and did I mention that we Tweet, post on Facebook, Instagram and Vine in between taking pictures and doing the interviews.. Ay Bendito no es fácil!
Luckily my first interview was with Alberto Mareo the talent from Allstate mega successful campaign “La Mala Suerte”. We are very thankful to Allstate who were gracious to connect with us at Premios Tu Mundo and treat us to car service and front row tickets to the actual show. It was fun to interview “La Mala Suerte” as the first thing he did was wish webcitygirls good luck at Premios Tu Mundo.

This red carpet will go down in our history as the one where we did not see or get to interview some of our favorite celebrities performing like Natalia Jimenez, Victor Manuelle, Daddy Yankee, but we did get some great interviews from other favorites like Ambar, Henry Santos, Alexia Echevarria, Sofia LaChapelle, Ingrid Macher y Pedro Capo wepa!
