It's My Birthday!

wellesley_gayle_and_family_2020

Today, August 29, 2020, I celebrate yet another year!

And again I say, to God Be The Glory!

It has been another tumultuous year, but I've already seen the bright light at the end of the tunnel.

As you, and some of my readers probably know, I made a bold and difficult decision to part with corporate last year.

And the projections looked good with growing website traffic.

But then things turned the other way and took a nose dive later in the year when my website traffic dropped by more than 60%, thanks to another Google Algorithm update.

And so the earning which was already subsidized but expected to grow, turned the other direction as well!

That was nervy - to put it mildly.

But God has been good, and still is, as with some encouragement from friends and Patrons, I launched my e-store, and despite the depression caused by the onset of the worst global crisis in the last 100 years, things continue to progress.

It is still a work in progress today, but I can see the great possibilities at the end.

And, with our new baby, Nylah (the apple of my eye), a healthy and stable family, and a fast growing YouTube channel, I have a whole lot to be thankful for.

But to you, my associates, my patrons, friends, and all my readers, again I say thanks.

Thanks for your readership, viewership, feedback and more so, the words of encouragement in the down times; please believe me when I say, you, through this website, INSPIRE me.

The family has already been treating me since this morning, and I expect that to continue into tonight :-)

So bless you - and yes, Happy Birthday to me :-)
-Wellesley

I do enjoy your weekly emails. I have seen more of Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² through your eyes than I knew existed. Having left Jamaica more than 60 years. I become very emotional when I read and see all the beauty. It was beautiful when I was a child even more so now.

So you went through the fire and are getting even stronger! Time to celebrate, for sure. Enjoy your time at the Rasta Village event as well. Be sure to tell them and they'll announce it so everyone can share the vibe. Best of all, your precious family got to treat you all day and into the night. May the light you see keep getting brighter and brighter as you shine your blessings across our world. I look forward to thousands of your continued posts about our beautiful, jamming,' and joyous Jamaica!
