August 2015 marks diGJamaica’s third anniversary. diGJamaica was The Gleaner‘s gift to the nation on its Golden Jubilee in 2012. Modelled on the popular but now out of print Handbook of Jamaica, the website aims to be a source of credible, relevant information about Jamaica when and where you need it. diGJamaica.com not only provides real access to information, but also encourages dialogue about Jamaica. We started blogging to encourage such dialogue about Jamaica, helping users see the immediate relevance of the information on the site.
We hope diGJamaica and the blog have lived up to these missions, and hope to continue to grow and serve the Jamaican people as best as possible.
And since we’re the gift that keeps on giving, we’re celebrating our birthday by giving away three gift baskets to our loyal social media followers. The giveaway will take place on Friday, August 28, starting at 1PM. We will post one question on the hour (1PM-3PM) on Twitter. To win, be the first person to correctly answer a question. There will be one winner per question and no repeat winners.
So, take this time to get familiar with the website and blog, because you’ll have to do a little diGging to win the prizes!
