And it so happened that i turned 17…

17 years ago @ at a private Hospital in M/ville, Jamaica it so happened that i was lucky enough to be born. Wow, i’m getting so old…just the other day i was 1, and now all of a sudden i’m 17..1+7=17….cool eh, no wait…1 +7 is 8. My life, so far has been awesome;i know I’m still young and i still have alot to experience, discover and unfold. Having life is a love – hate thing, there will be good days and there will be bad days.

I’ve been blogging for a year now; well i had blogs before that, but it would have been a miracle to see anything written on it. I decided to take blogging serious a year ago…Jun 14th, 2006 to be exact. Over that period of time I’ve grown both physically and mentally, my writing has gotten better, I’ve learnt alot and it’s only going to get better from here. On another note i’d like to take this post to thank everyone who reads my blog, it would have been nothing without visitors, i’ve moved from averaging 20 visitors a day to 150 visitors…hitting well over 14,000 hits on a monthly basis…it’s comments like these that keep me writing:

 “A degree of specialization with respect to Jamaica would be greatly appreciated by this visitor to your site.But exploring issues regarding Jamaica does not necessarily suggest or mean that other salient topics,subjects, themes or interests have to be shelved or abandon exclusively for Jamaica.Occassionally, special features on other areas of interest can be explored.

Interestingly,subjects and topics can be addressed on a ratio or percentage basis with a greater focus on Jamaica,since you enjoy writing on Jamaica and would prefer to be a big fish in a small pond.Nonetheless,whatever approach you employ with respect to preference,I will frequent your site because I consider it informative and instructive in terms of the sundry opinions posited by visitors to the site.Good luck and RESPECT!”

That comment was made in regard to this post

Once again thanks for visiting my blog.

P.S The best gift anyone can give me for writing is commenting, i love feedback…bash me, praise me, insult me…doesn’t matter i love comment….forget the last thing though:P

Happy Birthday To Me:)
