The holidays are here and this is a great opportunity to chronicle family festivities- everything from tamaladas, to holiday dinners, to post-election family squabbles, to impromptu football scrimmages.
The only thing better than fresh tamales during the holiday season is family. This explains why making tamales with family is such a joyful treat.
I also see my Twitter friends as an extension of my family so I was glad to share my enthusiasm, tweets, and a picture as I made the tamales. When people ask me how to build a “fan base” on Twitter, I always tell them to tweet about things they love (as in food, family, social causes,..), not what you think others want to see you tweet about.
