Best News & Current Affairs Blog (2011 & 2012) and Jamaican Blogger of the Year (2011) at The Jamaica Blog Awards.

Thank You ! : 10,000 Hits

So last August I decided I wanted to blog. I decided I’d make it a blog about Politics and Current Affairs and I expected a lot of excited young readers and I saw a future with rich commentary and feedback (it’s ok, you can laugh; it’s funny). Needless to say, that never happened.

If you visit the Archives to the right of your screen, you’ll see that I made 7 posts in the month of August and collectively they got the blog all of 137 views. (Again, you can laugh; it’s funny.) September rolled around the corner and I decided I’d make another post, that got all of 27 views and October, November and December were nothing to write home about.

By then I became disheartened. The blog was a flop. I should have just stuck to writing Facebook notes. At that time I had one consistent reader and he encouraged me to continue writing. He thought it would “pick up” (rolls eyes). Still, when the new year rolled around, I decided I’d try again, I’d broaden the scope of the blog. So I added Entertainment & Culture, Personal, Religion, Social Justice and kept Politics … and WHAM! .. the views shot off the ground !!
