Good morning Trinidad and Tobago and the rest of the internet. Another YouTube video to keep the channel going. I want to talk about blogging and Caribbean Bloggers Week.
Blogging is not dead. It might not be at the forefront but it’s still alive.
So what is a blog? According to wikipedia
A blog (short for weblog) is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (or blog posts).
Blogging took off in the late 90s when online publishing tools became available to the general public. I started blogging in 2004. A mix of tech and everyday life. Six years ago I switched to only blogging tech at TechTT (Trinidad and Tobago Technology Blog) and that evolved into The Tech Remix recently. I have been doing this for many years and it’s my passion for technology and learning that keeps me going.
Caribbean Bloggers Week is organised by Silicon Caribe and there is also a regional bloggers directory. I would like to see more tech bloggers in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean. I went searching for a quote on blogging and found this one – I blog because I have something to say. – Eddie Huang
