This is a meta-post about blogging. As I pass 2,000 page views I-and-I would be remiss if I didn’t say
Thanks for reading this blog, for making it worthwhile to continue.
When I started this endeavor I wasn’t sure how it would be received, especially since it was started at a time when I felt there was a lot of unfair criticism being directly at Jamaicans who don’t live in Jamaica by people, like Portia Simpson-Miller, who were likely there in the audience clapping loudly when Michael Manley said “there are five flights to Miami per day.” And while I am not in America at Manley’s exhortation I still had apprehensions about the ease with which the views of Jamaicans in the diaspora may be dismissed as idealistic or detached from on-the-ground reality. It has been a very pleasant surprise to see that not all the ideas of Jamaicans living overseas are readily dismissed.
