To the most high God.
I've written a lot over the years but it was one year ago while watching something that I considered rather funny on the Olympics that I decided hey instead of just emailing my friends about it why not start one of these blog thingies. And so Doan Mind Me was born.
Must say back then I didn't know how big the blog world was and I really only knew about Yammie and Kami's blog but I decided to give this blogging thing a try.
Well what can I say its been an up and down year but I think I like what's become of this blog. It still sort of escapes definition in my opinion. Just the rants of a black man raised in the west indies, living in the t.dot who loves hip hop and black music in general and just says whatever comes into his head. Crazy ol Jdid's thoughts. Hope you enjoy them.
So respect due to Yammie, Kami, Dr D and Mad Bull and the other Caribbean bloggers who came before me and paved the way and of course respect due to everyone out there in blogland who has stopped by and whose blogs I frequent. I love y'all! Man are there some talented people out there. Too may to name. Sometimes you guys stop me cold in my tracks like whoa why am I here filling up the internet with crap when you guys are so intelligent and write so well. But oh well, I've never been one to dwell on comparisons, I'm just doing my thing and I respect y'all for doing your thing. You may influence me at times but I write like Jdid and no-one else and I aint down with copying you or wont be overawed by your style cause that's just how I be. I'm a just respect yours and give you love.
But yea I think the blog collective is a mighty cool set of folk and I admire y'all and try to keep up with your writing as best I can. Doesn't it feel sometimes like we know each other? Doesn't it feel like we are friends. People who I've never met. I mean if I don't see certain folk blog for a while I get sort of worried about them hoping nothings happened to them. Man that's sort of scary aint it.
And its weird too how I find so many ideas like my own in blogs. I guess blog minds think alike, lol. Maybe a study needs to be conducted on the characteristics of folks who blog.
Anyway back to the subject at hand. Thanks to all my friends who have actually read my blog as well cause I know I told most of you but I think for the most part you've ignored this place. Oh well, I aint doing it for wunnah anyways. :-) Just exactly why am I doing this I wonder? The verdicts still out I think but its probably just for the pure love of writing and to see what I can come up with and if I can keep this up.
Oh and respect to the folks I dont know who also read and dont comment. Try and say sumting nuh man! Lol, thanks for stopping by, hope you like it.
When I started I didn't think this thing would last 6 months but hey a year later and we still going strong. Well not really that strong lately due to work and other constraints but we nuh dead yet so that's something to be happy about. Must give thanks.
So yea props to everyone, too many names to call and I'm afraid I'd offend someone. Thanks for your support and I'm going to try to step up my game for the year. Bless!
