From the Publisher
The Start of
The other day I sat down and thought to myself, is there something that I
can do, using the internet as my tool to inform people abroad about what is happening in
Barbados. I knew that there are many Barbadian sites on the internet, including sites for
tourists and sites containing news and many other sites containing general information
about the island itself, but I wanted something with information from my friends and I ,
something from our perspectives, then I looked up at the Television, there it was.
What I saw was a story about e-zines (electronic magazines) which are very
comman on the internet today. It was then that the idea hit me, why not create my
own e-zine! Of course I could not or would not do it alone so I called a few of my friends
and they agreed to help me, and here we are today!
This is the first volume and first issue of Bajan View and we hope that
there will be many more too come. It goes without saying that we need the internet surfing
public like yourselves to make this e-zine a success, so sit back relax and enjoy some
Bajan news and editorials, have a good day!
