There are many political blogs and talk shows covering certain topics. I don’t want to rehash the same material her on this blog. My goal is to
- Bring information or point of views to the public that are not commonly talked about.
- Present Information in a clear simple way that the average person can understand.
- Give those who may not be aware of whats going on around them some insight that might encourage them to pay closer attention
I hope to accomplish these goals by posting short informative articles of between 300 to 750 words.
When I started this blog over a year ago it was out of frustration. I felt like things were going out of control in this country and I needed a place to share my thoughts, to put them out there in hopes that someone would read them and perhaps be influenced in a positive way.
It has been a journey.
Through blogging I have been made aware of so much of what is going on in this country. And like the saying goes the more I learn the more I realize just how little I really know.
I am often humbled when I go into the various political and civic groups on Facebook and read posts by average Bahamians like myself. I realize that we have some very intelligent men and women with great ideas for the development of our country and solutions to many of our most vexing problems.
Many of these posts would make great articles on this blog. So I want to invite you to share your ideas in a 500 word post on this blog as Cecil Newry recently did in this post.
If you have some knowledge that you think most Bahamians need to know about, or some idea that you would like to get out there, I invite you to write a short article and submit it to be published here on Straight Talk Bahamas. Whether it’s on politics, relationships, culture, health, the economy etc.
