On Saturday January 19 I had the grand opportunity of connecting with some great, passionate Jamaican Bloggers at the 3rd staging of the Jamaica Blog Awards. The event was held in the beautiful ambiance of South Beach Cafe in Kingston Jamaica. The atmosphere was warm and friendly as bloggers, readers, writers, tweeters, photographers and supporters networked, chit-chat and exchanged twitter handles. The organizers surprisingly upheld a lot of the philosophy shared on my blog with a Green Environment. They were minimal on paper by proving attendees with only an half page list of simply the Award Categories and honoring their sponsors. They promoted exercise by not having excessive chairs, they conserved on energy by going green with the excess lighting which intern accentuated the decorations at the venue. There was no need for Air Conditioning augmented by the fact that the event was held outdoor and God balanced the temperate evening with the cool mid-January wind.

This is TeamKB, where ‘Team’ comes before KB,
It has everything to do with ‘us’ and nothing to do with me.
KB:- Keep Believing
I would love to dedicate my Blogger of the Year award to #TeamKB and my entire Facebook Family. You guys voted, shared, tagged and promoted my links daily. Without your unwavering support I couldn’t have dreamt of topping the voting charts. To the Heavenly Father, Dear God you orchestrated this and for that I am truly grateful, I know you have greater things in store, please keep inspiring my thoughts as I reach out to those who stumble across my website. To my readers, followers and friends, 2013 is going to be an epic year. I am currently doing some major upgrades on my website which will be launched in mid-February with the partnership of Creative Engine the company behind the Jamaica Blog Awards Website. I am seeking guest writers interested in working with me on some posts on Renewable Energy in Jamaica, if you are interested kindly contact me. The Kimroy Bailey Foundation is fitting itself together smoothly, I will be providing an update on that soon.
Thanks again for your support through 2012!… And remember in all you do, never give up! Keep you head up! and KB:- Keep Believing, never ever stop dreaming! 🙂
