Tis' the Season to Say "Thank You!"



Dear Reader,

I wanted so badly my own space to be heard that when I discovered I could create a blog, I thought it was the 'best thing since slice bread.'  Yeah man, that's a Jamaican proverb right there, something we say, 'ole people use to sey.'  Anyway, I started out just wanting to share my own views on just about anything music related and specifically Jamaican music.  I never thought about who would read my stories or if anyone cared but I became aware of my 'stats' growing and realized you were reading, oh how I thank you so much!

That realization lead me to accept that I had to be responsible with information I shared so I started taking notice of what you read most.  To date, one of the most loved blogs here is http://www.newimagepromotion.com/2011/09/im-talks-jamaican-slangs.html surprisingly.  Among the blogs you read most, artistes Kashu and Macka Diamond stories have been among the 'Popular Posts' for weeks.  Although we have not had much of these, the 'Popular Post' is a piece contributed by Ms. Paulet Biedermann titled, 'Reggae's Terminal Illness,'  Ms. Biedermann sent us an email asking us to share her views which you obviously enjoy reading.  I thank Paulet Biedermann so much for her contribution.  I also recognize that you love reading our drop down messages in left column of the screen and can assure you we enjoyed sharing those.

The good thing about this space is that I get to share what I think is significant and/or important as well as highlight talented artistes I believe in.  Overall, nothing feels better than watching my 'stats' grow which has now swept pass 40,000 page views, wow! For this I am so grateful and thankful to all readers across the United States of America where I receive most views, my island home Jamaica coming in second, the United Kingdom, China, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, Canada, Sweden, France, Netherlands, Israel, Dubai, Russia, Australia, Costa Rica, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Italy just to name a few, thank you all.

To all the artistes featured here, my hope is that 2013 will be your best year.  As we continue to generate interest with our stories, in this space, I hope you impact positively, the lives of the many persons who take time to read about you.  I want to give the readers a reason to return, a story that motivates, encourages or simply put a smile on their faces.  I want to teach, to inspire someone or anyone who visits this space, and so you should too, but most of all I want to say and on your behalf THANK YOU to all visitors to my web magazine.

"Merry Christmas Peace, Love n Harmony
And a prosperous 
New Year"
