We Try

We try and we try and that is all we can do, is try. We are definitely not going to force anyone to do anything they do not wish to do. They kokua or ignore us, they make the final decision. And we seem to have a hard row to hoe in the Moanalua Corridor.

"OK, we are starting a blog. Hey, life is short. At some point, take your communication to its logical extreme, and this is how we’re all going to be communicating anyway. Think about it."

In this sector there are two separate large dance organizations that are competing with each other.  Each has their own particular way of doing good for the dance community. Stands to reason that we must and will respect their wishes.

Sooner or later they will come around to realize that we just want to help, and it is very distinctive of whatever else they have. I personally live in Nanakuli and if I go to some function, it should be productive for all involved. I do not intend to waste my time or of any others. We are trying to get everyone to understand that we are not "instead of" anything. We are "in addition to" whatever they have now.

Meanwhile, we can certainly help the independent dance organizations or those that would like to feel independent. The studios are not yet aware of the benefits of blogging because they have Web sites and that seems to be the solution to all their PR problems. Blogging is still relatively new in Social Dance.

We do sincerely recommend the latest from Kapolei Chapter HBDA in the Oahu - West blog. The write up by Tim Cubero and the photos submitted are what we refer to as "Da Reel Teeng" in blogging. Check them out and you will see why the hits are going through the roof. They are read throughout the Islands and we even received an email from the Philippines.

Pub's Side Note: I will be at the Pearl City Elks Lodge this coming Tuesday and see if I can make a nice blog out of it. See you all there. This all takes time, I hope you understand and we must be patient.
