Through ironically colourful colourblind eyes....

Blogging has really come a long way. So long, in fact, that ordinary people are now being recognized for their blogs. Baghdad Burning is a blog from an Iraqi citizen that was started round about the time of the war, and gives an account of Iraqi life from an ordinary citizen's point of view. Her blog has been nominated for the Samuel Johnson prize - a prestigious British award for non-fiction. Imagine that, youre going about your normal day, blogging as you normally would for no other reason than for the sake of blogging, and youre up for an award. Jamaica's own Jamaica Girl's and Mad Bull's blogs both got favourable reviews as well in SkyWriting, Air Jamaica's inflight magazine.

Its a good thing to see people out there being recognized for their writings, and who write not for money, nor for fame, but for simply keeping it real.

That's both interesting and scary. I write because I like writing, but seldom do I consider how many different people could find it and read about my life
