Last August marked eight years since this blog was founded in 2005. Since then, I have scoured the web in search of all that Haitians have to say online culminating into the FREE daily newsletter which I started two years ago and now 8 episodes of many more to come of the weekly Legacy of 1804 live podcast radio show.
WHAT HAVE WE DONE? Here are the metrics to date:
- 16,190 Tweets
- 7,604 Followers on Twitter
- 2,000 plus Followers on Facebook
- 388 posts on this blog
- One Black Celebration Award in the Culture Category (Thank you Black Street and Judith Jacques!)
- One presentation on Haitian bloggers at the Haitian Studies Association Conference
- One presentation on Haitian bloggers at the Haiti Cultural Exchange Diaspora In Dialogue Conference
- Over two hundred feeds by Haitians aggregated
- One appearance on the Melissa Harris Perry Show on MSNBC to echo your sentiments on the UN's handling of cholera in our beloved Haiti
I have amplified Haitian voices since 2005 and I have done so free to the public so far. I want to continue to do so but in exchange for some goodies that you can use as gifts for your friends, I am asking you to invest in the future of this endeavour.
WHAT ARE THE GOODIES?
