Woot Woot! We're In the News Again!

by My-Island-Jamaica.com

Well guess what?

Yup! My-Island-Jamaica.com is in the news again! This time it is the top newspaper in Jamaica, The Jamaica Gleaner!

The feature was published on March 30th, 2011 and can be found on page 11 of the "Hospitality Jamaica", tourism section.

For me, it's truly a blessing and an appreciation of the hard work and dedication on the website - my labour of love.

It was completely unsolicited! I got the contact, via facebook from the Gleaner writer. We met, she interviewed me and, well, this is it!

I've saved a copy on the website. You can find the link to the article here:

To get this type of coverage from the most prestigious newspaper in Jamaica does mean a lot to me, trust me.

I will continue to strive to make the website even more useful and informational.

Frequent Traveler Looking For More
by: Sandy

I am an American, but a frequent traveler to Jamaica for over 20 year. I love the information that you provide because I sometimes travel with newcomers and the information provides us with all the updates. I love Jamaica and I am sure that there are many things that I never explored during my visits.

Congratulation to your website. I have always said if only we as Jamaican's knew what we have, we would preserve it.

I wish that everyone in Jamaica had the opportunity to travel outside of the island so we would appreciate what we have.

I love the new article. Thanks for sharing! I feel very honored to be part of such an esteemed community of Jamaican admirers! Thanks Wellsely for connecting us all and spreading the love.

Hi Wellesley,

It's really great that all your efforts to promote our island home has been recognised by our oldest National press.

Since 1999, when the thought of planes falling from the skies because computer clocks may not recognise the end of that century and the begin ing of this one, made me appreciate the importance of being computer literate.

Here is hoping that with this kind of exposure, it will encourage more of our brothers and sisters throughout the country to become more aware of the possibilities that exist by having this knowledge.

I remember one occasion on my crusade of ecouragement to one of our rastafarian bredrin who described being on the internet to a fish being caught in a net and was adamant about not becoming a fish?

Your entreprenurial endeavours in marrying your love for your country and finding a medium where you can share it with so many people is admirable and I'm sure it will become very popular in the years ahead.

I wish you every success and will continue to contribute in My Island Jamaica's progress!

Thank you for your invitation to participate.

One Love

Congratulations in being in the paper. Hope this brings you lots of traffic.

I wrote you before about there being many Jamaican's on You Tube who are doing beauty videos about Hair and life.

Hope you will be addressing some of them and thus increasing your presence online as well.

Nice website.
