On “Brief” Hiatus…

Out of TimeHey folks!

In case you haven’t realised it by now, this blog has taken a short hiatus. Well, I’ve taken a short break from blogging, if you want to be more precise! Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.  I’ll be back soon!  I just need some time to sort some things out in the real world.

This post will remain at the top of the page each day, as a courtesy.  For now, when I post something new, it will be below this post.

I want to thank all my returning visitors (and bots!) for keeping me on your reading lists these past 5 months.  I’m really lucky to have patient readers… and somehow, relevant content!  By my last check, I’ve gotten close to 15,000 more hits since T.B.C. hit the 25k milestone.  That’s not something to be ungrateful about!

In the meantime, you can follow me on Twitter. I’m really liking the interaction there, and its providing me with a fresh perspective, new ideas, new connections, etc. If you want or need to unleash your fury at me (for no new content, what else?), feel free so to do via my blog’s Comments page. You can also shoot me your missive at boboleechron [at] gmail [dot] com.

This Bobolee Is Getting A Serious Beating, Boy!

Yesterday morning, the hit counter on my blog stood at 25,000 hits.  I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least!  At this sentence, the count stands at 25,106 unique hits.


A Good Friday Bobolee in Trinidad.

This is a major milestone for me, and for my blog.  Actually, this is my 2nd attempt at blogging.  I used to have a MSN Spaces page at one point in time ( was the URL) which I discontinued as I didn’t feel too comfortable sharing my inner thoughts and feelings with the whole wide world at the time.  What got me started again was the 2008 US Election campaign.  I was really appalled some of the things that were being said (and done) during the campaign, and at the same time, I was really captivated by Barack Obama.

A few friends and I were discussing the campaign issues online and one posted a Slate picture slideshow entitled “The Soiling of Old Glory”.   Those pictures invoked memories of a trip I’d made to a Southern US state in the 1990’s.  Those memories helped me write “The Day I Met Jim Crow”, a recollection of the day I met Jim Crow for the first time.  That’s the most widely read and referenced post on this blog to date, with close to 1300 views to date.

I’m really fortunate to have made a few acquaintances thru this second blogging stint; acquaintances I hope turn into friendships as time goes by.  My blog stats tell me that my blog posts have been read from as far west as Alaska to as far east as China.  That really… I don’t know… has me in awe?  I really don’t know how else to describe it… how that makes me feel.

My blog will be a year old on May 24th.  With any luck (and time) I’ll share some more facts and figures then.  In these eleven months (approx), I also started Bobolee Pix, a space for me to share a few of my pictures.  I’ve been stymied with my photography efforts though: someone sniped my camera last month and I haven’t gotten myself a replacement as yet! 😕  Really a shame… I loved taking photos, and my camera and I had just gotten used to each other’s quirks.  I hope the new owner likes it as much as I did! 😕

I’m not a learned scholar, an author, a writer, or a journalist.  Just a simple dude with an opinion (and a way with words, apparently).  I have to warn you, I’m not always able to post as I like due to my real-world commitments!  I wish I could do nothing else but share my thoughts and observations with you each and everyday… and I probably could, but I’ll have to leave my currently well-paying 9-5!  At least, now with my Twitter feed,  we can still share and communicate thoughts on a more impromptu and frequent basis.

Thanks a lot for visiting, thanks a lot for linking, thanks a lot for critiquing, and thanks a lot for sharing!


Peace and Rice,




I reached a milestone today.

My blog has been hit over 1000 times!

In a little over a month, my fledgling effort has crossed the 1000 mark!

Woo Hoo!

To celebrate my little ripple in the blogosphere, check this video out. Its a video made by Rémi Gaillard, a French man who scores “goals” using the urban landscape as a soccer field!

Some interesting stats about some of my blog’s visitors:

  • The majority of you came from the US:

Country Stats

  • The blog has been read from the East to the West. Brunei is in the hizzy!

Most of the Trinidad visits shown above are probably mine. This particular site tracker thingy can’t ignore the visits I make to the blog when I write stuff, hence the discrepancy.

  • I get visits from the US State Department (; 3%) too.

I seriously don’t know whether I should be happy or scared.

Domain Stats

  • My most read/popular posts:

…We Are The Ones…

Of Monkeys and Men

Top Posts

Most of these posts have one thing in common: Barack Obama.

Well, in the time its taken me to put this post together, the march to the next 1000 has begun.

Thanks for reading, thanks for visiting, thanks for sharing.

Peace and Much Love.
