My Top Ten Hits: 2012





1,560,896  page views and counting! From the United States of America to the Republic of Yemen, this blog has been viewed 1,560,896 times since I began tracking in 2007 with Google Analytics. As Mikey Smith would have said, “Mi cyaan believe it!”

From my very first post on December 13, 2005, that began so tentatively with “Why Do I Continue to Write?” my blog has continued to include not only my work, but also the work of important writers from the English-speaking Caribbean. 

And as more elder writers continue to join the ancestors, it is essential that we honor them while they are alive. Our literature, as Leonard “Tim” Hector reminded us, is different from every other region on the planet and we are the only ones who can tell it. But first, we must believe that it’s a story worth telling. This blog is a testament to that belief.

My blog has also expanded its scope with the petition to exonerate Marcus Garvey. I’ve lost a few readers, but I’m pressing ahead because Garvey represents one of the most important questions that we in the Americas should ask ourselves: “How will I negotiate the African presence in my life?”

How we answer this question will influence every aspect of our lives.

The guidelines that Garvey articulated provide a useful framework for the development of cultural models in the Caribbean. The seeds have been sown for many projects that—Jah willing—will come to fruition in 2013.

Give thanks to +Stephen Bess , +Rethabile Masilo , +Dave Lucas, +F.S.J. Ledgister +Nalo Hopkinson+Pam Mordecai +Wayne Hicks , +Wayne Bennett my earliest readers, and all the readers from 190 countries who have bought my books, and continue to support my work by pinning, tweeting and sharing my posts:  +Headly Westerfield+Natacha Ozbasar +Adam Lowe +Lynne Barrett +Jean Lowrie-Chin +Cameron Conaway+Rustum Kozain+Diane Browne  +Hazel Campbell--if I haven't mentioned you, is not bad mind.
