Barbados Citizens Are Using The Internet To Embrace The New Push For Democracy, Integrity & Accountability
There are over 1.2 million WordPress blogs published online from all over the world – displaying hundreds of millions of articles on any given day.
During the last few days, TWO Barbados-based blogs appeared simultaneously on the WordPress “Top 100” Lists.
On July 26th, Barbados Free Press achieved #39 most popular WordPress Blog out of 1,244,243 WordPress blogs worldwide..
On July 27, 2007, the Barbados Underground article The Demise of Roy Morris: Veteran Journalist At The Nation Newspaper was the #62 most popular WordPress Post in the world out of those hundreds of millions of posts online at WordPress. That same day, Barbados Free Press was ranked the #60 most popular WordPress Blog.
On July 28, 2007, the Barbados Free Press post Roy Morris – Nation News Train Wreck Continues was the #63 most popular WordPress Post, and BFP was the #50 most popular WordPress Blog in the world. That same day, the Barbados Underground Post The Demise of Roy Morris was the #93 most popular WordPress Post.
This Must Be A World Record
Barbados is a tiny country with fewer than 300,000 souls on this island. That’s barely a city in most of the world – yet TWO of our Bajan blogs are on the WordPress “Top 100” lists.
Friends, Something Is Happening…
Tens of thousands of Bajans are flocking to political blogs every week in what has to be the strongest display of non-confidence in the nation’s news media and government seen in decades. Although BFP and Barbados Underground have made the “Top 100” WordPress lists, they are only two of a dozen or more blogs on this island that are on the forefront of a new democracy in Barbados.
Never doubt these two truths for even a moment:
1/ The political and media elites in Barbados have lost their their ability to control information in our country.
2/ The appearance of TWO Barbados blogs on the WordPress “Top 100” Lists means that people all over the world are interested in our stories about political corruption in Barbados.
Tell your friends and family…
There is still much work to be done, but the world is changing, and ordinary Bajans cannot be silenced any longer.
