What To Expect From The Daily Chela In 2020, And How To Help

A quick message from the founder of The Daily Chela.

January 1, 2020 will be the 90 day anniversary of The Daily Chela, and we couldn’t be more excited about the direction we are headed. Not only have we built a loyal audience in a short period of time, but we have established ourselves as one of the few media advocates of Chicano and Latino culture.

With that said, we want to share with our readers some of the things we have in store for 2020 and beyond.

First, we will be introducing a new Science section. The section will be headed by scientists from USC, and aimed at promoting the sciences within the Latino community. We cant wait!

Second, we will be adding new writers to our politics and culture section. These writers will be covering an assortment of cultural issues, as well as touching on hot button political issues alongside our already popular opinion section.

This year we also plan to improve our news section and bring on additional writers to focus on Chicano history, as well as grow our podcast, which we successfully tested in 2019.

Lastly, we hope to increase our subscriber base. We only need 200 more subscribers to become fully independent, and put ourselves in a position to produce better content on a daily basis. Only 200 more!

Do you like what you read at The Daily Chela? If you like what you read, the best thing you can do to help us grow is become a monthly subscriber, and help us in our journey to become financially independent.

Thank you for reading The Daily Chela. We know we aren’t always perfect, and still have a lot of improvements to make, but we hope you decide to take the trip with us again in 2020.

See you again on January 6th!
