MILESTONE – Truly Self Evident: Bajan Reporter fully online, blog is dead? Long live the Web-Magazine!

— Life is just a party, and parties weren’t meant to last…Prince, 1999

— we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. . . .Thomas Jefferson, et al. July 4, 1776

We always arise from our own ashes. Everything returns later in its changed form…” Children Of Dune, Frank Herbert

Similarly to the science-fiction series of Dune, where its hero, Paul Atreides – Muad’Dib/Usul, Base Of The Pillar – on beholding the planet Arrakis as a benchmark for an entire galaxy, I envisioned the change of this News-Blog from a subsidiary to a domain in its own right, from since 2007.

I said in my previous entry the next post will be significant, this is my last entry over here at Blogger, henceforth? I will have a new location and it is Therefore, I am making a formal break away from Blogger’s limited scope and declaring Independence to a new and separate domain- a few days after Barbados’ own break 43 years ago.

Like Freddie Mercury once observed, it has been ‘ — no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise…” yet as a challenge, I have seen it through! The Bajan Reporter is now on online entity in its own right with avenues for advertising…

1. An upper banner of 728×90 pixels is $175 per Mth, or $1,875 for a year (e.g. paid up front places you from Nov 2009 to Feb 2011 – 15 months). Half up front and balance at six months allows 13 months of ads – e.g. – December paid 50% and then by June the outstanding fee allows you space up to January 2011 (13 as opposed to 15 months)

2. The right tower (120×600 pixels) is $150 per Mth, or $1,650 for 1 year [15 Months – Opening Special].

3. Middle or Lower Block {300×250 pixels} $75 per mth, or $795 for 1 year.

Story Square Block {250×250 pixels} $65 per mth, or $705 for 1 year.

ATTN: Links in all ads are optional and incur no extra cost, plus – b/w or colour have same rates, remember? We’re not seeking to list astronomical rates as seen on other local & regional counterparts…

Instead we provide a reasonable structure for banners, towers, blocks etc. Please note our pay plan which you may find rather intriguing – if you book a full year now and pay up front? You will be entitled to FIFTEEN (15) months of ad space! If your budget allows you to do half now and half again at six months? You will earn 13 (THIRTEEN) months of ad space. This special is limited, so hurry! E-Mail us or call (246) 266-1866 NOW!

I have kept you informed in my own way since 23/12/2006, and I will continue to do so, but in a different manner! The Bajan Reporter is at its domain with room for advertising – it also has additional features not available at Blogger, so while that sub-site is now at end, I still look forward to serving you over at this new location…
