R.I.P Jamaican Bloggers.

Rest in Peace indeed, because that must be the case. Not much Jamaican bloggers seem to post anymore. Now let’s check the dates of these carefree bloggers, first on the list to be attacked is:

Taylor : Your not as bad, but come on, post a bit more will you, i love your posts and your blog is one of my favorites, you seem to be posting less and less nowadays, your disappointing me.

Jamaican Girl: Your the biggest disappointment, your last entry was sometime in the summer, it’s getting close to the new year now, not even a note to say why your gone or when you will return, you have readers, and i’m very angry at you for treating us with total disregard, your a big disappointment to me and all the other people who read your blog.

Bobby: Don’t tell me age is slowing you down, show us what you can do, get some posts on your blog god dammit, i need your wisdom.

Nuffcrap: Yah Yah, i know the excuse you have alot of blogs running and so on, NOT a good excuse, Jamaipanese has a plethora of blogs, and he still gets around to updating his blog, more often than me if i say so myself, get back into gear and manage your time wisely, i used to love Nuffcrap..

We all have lives, we all have problems, we all get depressed, we are all busy,we are all worried about crime in Jamaica, we all have jobs and we all have family to tend to, but that doesn’t serve as a reason to not update, blogging should be apart of your routine, suppose the gleaner decided to take a few months off, what would happen? As far as i can see you guys don’t seem to take blogging seriously, if that is the case then you shouldn’t have started blogging in the first place, i’m really dissapointed.

I check my rss reader for updates from Jamaican bloggers constantly, we’re a small bunch i don’t want to see us vanish from the blogsphere; i’m tired of seeing posts from techcrunch, engadget and others, i want to see more posts from Our people, i relate to it better.

I would also like to take this time to commend the Jamaican bloggers who constantly update there blogs, ESPECIALLY Jamaipanese, you continue to appear in my rss reader and that’s commendable, as far as i can see you manage your time exceptionally well, you should teach me how you do it, and when your on your long hiatuses you always come back with plausible excuses, i’d also like to commend Madbull, you may not be Jamaican, but your still in the Caribbean:), kudos to both of you. Oh and i almost forgot, a new blog on my readlist, Aurie, don’t end up like those carefree bloggers who abandoned there blogs, they seem to think no one reads them, i will update my blog, even if 1 Person reads it, everyone is of equal importance whether 1 or 1,000

I hope to see all of my favorite bloggers back on the blog train soon.


Update: If anyone knows any Jamaican blogs they think i don’t read, then please recommend them here.

    I don’t see how in God’s name i forgot to mention you Leo, not for the bad, but for the good, my apologies. Your my favorite blogger:P

    Gordon, I certainly agree with you and this article. Please understand that there are tons of Jamaican bloggers in cyberspace. But because we caribbean’s don’t have any residence of our own we get unsatisfactory results in terms of followings. I get frustrated having to spend time searching for Jamaincan and/or caribbean content. So that is why I launched http://www.Jamingle.com: The Caribbean Blogging Community two days ago. It’s similar to all the American blogging community out there, but it is ours. Afiwi Dis!
