Welcome to my Blog – by Waltie Ainsworth

Welcome to my Blog.

Over the last few months some of my daily articles have appeared on the Guyanese Online Blog  They have been well received and I am now encouraged to move ahead with my plans to establish this Blog and eventually publish e-books of my writings.

My thanks to Guyanese Online for giving me the exposure to their thousands of viewers.

Guyanese Online has now helped me to set up this Blog where I would be able to  post all of my previous articles – published and unpublished – as well as the ones I write daily. I hope that you are entertained!
