Straight out of the blocks we have an interview with the folks at IZATRINI.com

This site is as comprehensive as it gets and just a quick look will show that a lot of time and effort is being put into providing quality products and information.

If you need the most unique Soca Warriors Memorabilia, Trinidad Brand T-shirts, Trini Slang T-Shirts, Carnival T-Shirts, Soca T-Shirts, gear or any other other apparel related to Trinidad and Tobago, IZATRINI.com is the place to check. If you don’t happen to see what you looking for it’s because it doesn’t yet exist. If you do happen to want something that doesn’t yet exist drop them an email at info(at)izatrini.com and I am sure they can work on sourcing it for you.

And now the interview:

What made you decide to do IZATRINI?
The Soca Warriors bid for the 2006 World Cup was the catalyst that drove me and my partners to create a T&T website that not only showcased the Caribbean party scene but also highlighted the true essence of Trinidad and Tobago and all it has to offer.

If you had to describe your blog in less than 15 words how would you do it?
IZATRINI.com Blog provides perspective on everything T&T as well as information on custom Trini apparel.

How many regular readers do you think you have of the blog?
As per Feedreader, it varies anywhere from 500-600 readers.

How much time do you spend on average per day on IZATRINI?
Anything good requires constant attention, so somewhere from 2-8 hours a day.

What blogs (other than Allyuh :-) ) do you regularly read?
I read Allyuh.com of course, Trinidad Carnival Diary, The Manicou Report, Trini to de Bone, House of Lime, Trini Gourmet, Nicholas Laughlin’s Blog, Caribbean Free Radio.

What do you do when you’re not blogging?
Internet Marketing Consulting and Business Development, I enjoy the occasional Trini fete, lime, listening to soca, watching football, reading, working out, all of the above in moderation.

If you where trapped on an island by yourself what 3 things could you not live without?
Laptop, smart phone (both solar powered) and wireless internet.

Freestyle Friday – Tell us something, anything you want!
