One Love :The Jamaican Tag

Thursday, January 17, 2013
Sooo ... i was tagged by Jamaican Fashion & Beauty Blogger Ashley Miles-Barnes from the Pink Socialite to do this tag last week . I was a bit adamant to do it because i am a "Double stuffed" Oreo .. in fact that's what my friends called me at U.W.I . I will however try my best to answer all the questions as best as i can.


Title your post "One Love: Jamaican Blogger Tag"
 Link back to the blogger who tagged you (you may add a brief definition of what a tag is for the benefit of your readers)
 Copy and paste the rules at the beginning of your tag
 Copy and paste the questions as well so readers know what's going on
 Answer the questions
 Tag 7 other Jamaican bloggers to continue the trend. Kinda forces you to make friends, no? 
 QUESTIONS
1. Why did you give your blog its name? (If it is named directly after you, try and make your answer interesting. eg: Did you feel nervous at all about putting your name out there? Did you just lack creativity at the time?)
2. Why did you start blogging and why do you blog now?
3. Do you think being Jamaican influences your blogging style?
4. What do you think about the increase in bloggers in Jamaica?

5. What is your favourite thing about being Jamaican?

6. Ackee and saltfish or “(mackerel) run down”?

7. Stew peas or stew chicken?

8. Tastee Patties, Juici Beef Patties or Mother’s?

9. Pantucky or KFC?

10. What do you hope to be the future of blogging in Jamaica?
1. Well ... my Blog was actually inspired by "ELLE" Magazine ( which i talk about a lot on here) Elle to me represents high fashion , elegance and just anything that is of high quality . If you look up the word "Haute" you will find that it is exactly what i just said . As for the "People" ... The Haute "People" are my readers . Once you read this Blog .. you are "Haute".
2. This Blog came about because I've always dreamt of working at one of those High End Magazine as the "How To Girl"  ( Like Andie in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days ) But that has not happened so this is the next best thing . I blog now because i love the feedback i get from my readers plus i've made it into a Career for myself so that's pretty cool.

3.Being a Jamaican does not influence my blogging style . As i said i am an Oreo .. 

4. I love it! If it wasn't for the Jamaica Blog Awards i wouldn't know there was so much of us out there . It shows that we are learning how to utilize the resources we have to garner an international presence . I just wished people took it more seriously instead of a mere hobby

5. Hands Down .. The People! We are so outspoken as a People and Good at anything we do 
( once we put our minds to it) 

6. Neither ... i hate Salt fish .. and i hate Mackreal ...

7. Neither 

8. None of the above . I don't like Patties ... but! if i had to pick i would go with Tastee. ( Patties give me Diarrhea so i stay away .. is that T.M.I ??

9.I have no idea what Pantucky is ... so i would say K.F.C ( even though I'm not a huge fan)

10. I hope that Blogging will become an actual Career in Jamaica . Did you know it is a 2.7 Billion Dollar industry in the States ? I just hope that more companies will hire Bloggers as a part of their Marketing Teams because we are truly the "voice of the people". I also hope that more Jamaicans will accept it as a form of Journalism instead of tossing aside it as a "glorified reporter" ( I've actually been called that which is quite odd because they are 2 different things .


I hope i answered the questions well enough . Maybe i should start an "Oreo Jamaican Blogger Tag" . Because these questions were kinda limited . We'll see :-) 

Oh i'm gonna tag Exotic You and Beauty Jamaica

  2. I've never heard the term pantucky before, but I figure they're referring to pan chicken. How can being Jamaican not influence your blogging, oreo or not? Even if your outlook is international. When you look at popular American bloggers of Caribbean descent for example, one of the things that make them popular is hat they stand out from the crowd and highlight how their heritage informs their outlook on style. Check out http://www.wheredidugetthat.com for example.
