We can do more.

The hits on the total blogs ebb and flow. When they go up, it is exhilarating. When they go down, it is depressing. I should get used to it by now. They are going down now and it is still depressing.

"Unless you restrict your reading habits to a really small segment of the
blogging population, a feed reader is only going to give you a small
window of what is happening in the dance blogosphere."

So I have to plan on getting a good guest author for this blog. I cannot carry Oahu - West by myself. Fortunately I will have help from Kapolei Chapter HBDA, Willy and Tim have done wonders to get their chapter in the limelight. They are even known in the Philippines. If we just get one guest author from any one of the other chapters in the West, preferably one that does not have a Web site, we shall roll.

"Twinkle And Shine ... Doris Day

It seems like I am getting back in with HBDA at their functions at Aliamanu. It worked without any trouble last month. I will try to make it next week at Aliamanu and see if I can develop a nice blog for that function. It will be a good restart. The reader/dancers are there and everyone benefits.

"At my age, tomorrow is the most important thing in life. It comes to me at
midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself into my hands.
And hopes I've learned something from yesterday."

Of course, all our blogs need information contributors and at least one more Guest Author. The diversity of opinion is what is making these blogs. Just read some of the other blogs to get an idea of what information you could contribute. If, in addition, you could send an occasional photo with four to six people and at least first names included. whatta break! Yes, I know, close to impossible.

Central Valley blog will be deleted sometime next week and then Oahu -West will have entire western part of this Island. I am going to be very busy and I hope I get some help from the residents of this area. Most are willing to send us flyers and perhaps get some free advertising but it really does not do much good.

"To A Perfect World" ... Melissa Manchester

Those dancers that will be attending have already been notified and communicated with in newspapers, newslettters, web sites and email flyers. The real news, "for a blog," is what happened at the function, with photos included. If they do not wish to share with our readers, that is their privilege. But that is blogging not advertising "to whom it may concerned." It is going to take some time for more of the dancers to realize what's going on and the benefits from "blogging."

Pub's Side Note: Check out Da Spin Doctor on the latest Oahu And Beyond blog. Dat's da kine blogging we need, different. We have to find a good location for the Da Spin Doctor in the West. He already is in the Fleet Lounge near the Airport and Pearl City Elks Lodge. Now how about Aiea? Who knows? We might get the Moanalua Corridor going again. That was a dream before its time.
