One More Month.

The hits are dropping all around. But that is to be expected when I am rearranging so much. This blog will definitely be deleted according to the stats we have now and be combined with Dance Blogs. It will become my own personal blog and I will review all our blogs regularly.

"Yes, we would rather be hated for who we are,
rather than be loved for who we are not." 

Next most important is that we have two blogs running neck and neck for second place. Platinum Horseshoe, and Blogging Hawaii. In a couple months we are going to get more action in both of them and one of them may move into position of becoming independent. That, I would like to see. These are older blogs and have established some seniority.

There have been some changes and there will be more changes to come and they will be decided by the reader/dancers. Of course, our Two Centers and Guest Authors will make a big difference in what the reader/dancers prefer. This is pretty much out of my hands.

All the other blogs are still relatively new and still in process of developing according to the Two Centers and the Guest Authors. But increases in hits will continue to show in the next few months. I have determined that any blog with less than nine average hits per day should be deleted. Doble digits can show some viability even if only by myself. And with a regular Guest Author would go easily into the 20s.These blogs have great possibilities for public relations but the reader/dancers will be the ultimate judges.

A New Beginning

We are getting there. This blog will be officially The Dance Blogs and will contain just about the same information every Saturday. A review of the week. The other blog, Da Blog MW will contain update information of the blogs for midweek. The Dance Blogs will gradually assume the duties of both and Da Blogs MW will be deleted.

“Perhaps dancers do not want to be loved so much
as to be understood.”

The list continues in the order of average hits per day.The blog section will include other Web and Blog sites beyond our own and we shall kokua in whatevah we can. Since we are a work in progress, we do not yet know what we are doing. Suggestions will be gratefully accepted. Sorry no more comments.

The Top Three:

No. 1: Still on top is Town Dancer,  still the one to beat. But it is wide open for Two Centers and a Guest Author wouldn't hurt either. It will establish itself permanent in a couple more months, I believe.

No. 2: Platinum Horseshoe is now in second place. Two regular clients and waiting for a third. When they are ready we will be more than willing to help them.
No. 3: The Dance Blog is there only because it has been carrying the old Moanalua Corridor hits. It will go down by next week. The entire blogosphere is going through a period of adjustment.

"Maui Waltz" by Loyal Garner

The Ones still in the running:

No. 4: Da Blogs MW will be just temporary while I work on the details for deleting it. I really do not know what is holding it up.

No. 5: Latin Rhythms still in fifth place and still trying to define itself and the Latin scene in music and dance. Mainly because I blogged Salsa No Ka Oi and then we received a comment to boot. With a couple Two Centers. Wow!

No. 6: Blogging Hawaii has been a disappointment. But the Blogger stats are not very consistent. I believe it will go back up to the top three. Mainly because we have Makua Alii and Dream To Dance Studio. One more client and of course a couple good Guest Authors could make the difference for any one of  our blogs.

No. 7:  Live Music, taking the place of Sea Country and holding on much better than expected. Just have to find a nice place so I can blog'em. In town is probably my best bet. They are much more likely to know what a blog is.

No. 8: Dancing Nights started out stumbling but lucky it has a good Guest Author and at least one good steady Two Center. I will have take some time to find a place to visit. Then with  another regular Two Center, it will surprise everyone.

No. 9:  The Rail Tragedy is mostly in protest - of The Worst Thing that could ever happen to the West Coast of Oahu. And since I don't promote it at all, it serves as a good barometer. A goal for the other blogs to surpass,

"Hawai`i Today" by Loyal Garner

Any dance organization that has a counter and would like to be included in our stats is welcome. We can compare to do more of what the top ones do and less of what the bottom ones do. Simple, we will please the reader/dancers. The stats are a long way from being perfect but they are a handy guide.

Valuable Dance News from Other Dance Web and Blog Sites

Dance Fever Oahu covers just about everything at the Palladium and many other venues around the island. The most read dance Web site in Hawaii. Don't miss it.

The Dance Connection and That's Dancing by Frank and Lani Sierra. Mostly covers their own private clients and we should respect. They get much dance news unavailable to us and all you have to do is tune in. 

"I'll Remember You" by Don Ho

There are others and they are welcomed to this fold, however we will respect and not bother if that is their wish. We do state now and then, that we are here to help, not hinder.
