Time for a general tour of some Barbados and Caribbean blogs. Here is what our friends are writing about…
Jdid, a Bajan hanging his hat in Toronto, Canada, writes Doan Mind Me blog. This week, he celebrates the second anniversary of his blog, and six months since he became a daddy.
Titilayo writes Gallimaufry Blog and has posted some excellent Barbados Landship links and photos here.
OOPS! Our Mistake!
We mistakenly described La Shawn Barber as a “Former welfare mom” when we mentioned her article Let The Ethnic/Religious Profiling Begin!
In fact, we were thinking of Star Parker – another black writer and blogger who we also admire. Sorry about that Ms. Barber!
You can find La Shawn’s website here.
At The Pan Collective, Attilah asks You Want Fries With That Shake?…
We Caribbean women must deal with being objects for a whole society of men and not ever dare speak out against them.
Nicholas Laughlin struggles with writer’s block at Nicholas Laughlin’s Blog etc. (Editor’s note: Been there. Done that.)
Nicol Bethel in the Bahamas writes about The Real Free Press
We at the Barbados Free Press are exploring new ground in many ways. The publishing of this blog has been, and remains, a learning process. The BFP blog is a labour of love that has become successful (in terms of visitors) well beyond anything we thought was possible, and we are truly thankful to our readers for including us on their daily rounds.
Usually we have our best “editorial meetings” on a Saturday night where we cook a meal and enjoy some time together. Everybody works six days a week so we cherish the time off – but we also try to post every day. Sometimes we fail to post on one day (Fridays are really bad), but other days we fairly gush out major stories that are read by thousands and thousands of people.
So we know how difficult it is to maintain a blog – and to keep it on topic, interesting and current.
… Which is why we have no trouble removing blogs from our sidebar links when they become inactive or transform into something that doesn’t fit in with our vision.
